Marvel Studios is Interested in Casting Henry Cavill for Future Projects. For years insiders have shared that Henry Cavill (Man of Steel, The Witcher) is heavily on Marvel’s radar to join the MCU in various capacities. The latest rumors hint that he may have already been cast as Logan, aka The Wolverine as Marvel Studios begins to introduce the X-Men into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Should this be true, Cavill will then replace Hugh Jackman in the iconic role.
Though Marvel Studios has not confirmed any of these rumors, it comes as no surprise that the studio is keeping a tight lip when it comes to castings and plot-sensitive information for upcoming titles. Most Marvel actors have shared the many hoops Marvel goes through to keep details a secret, with many referencing “Marvel Snipers” in various interviews. Marvel has gone as far as giving multiple and/or fake scripts to actors such as Mark Ruffalo, Tom Holland, and Tessa Thompson who have spoiled various details about their upcoming projects to protect the integrity of the stories.
Fans have several casting hopes for Henry Cavill including Logan/Wolverine, Hercules, Brian Braddock/Captain Britain, and more, but Marvel Studios won’t budge or share their plans just yet. A source claims:
“Warner Bros. needs to act soon if they want to keep him. Marvel Studios is keeping an eye on him, too.”
Henry is far from the only actor on Marvel’s dream casting list. Other actors and actresses said to be on this shortlist include Keanu Reeves, Zac Efron, Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, and more. Several actors who had been rumored to be on the same list have recently been confirmed to appear in upcoming projects including Kit Harrington, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Angelina Jolie, Awkwafina, and that’s just the tip of the casting iceberg.
As the MCU moves forward and expands, we can’t wait to see who will join the casts!
