While it’s not exactly in the domain of Ryan Reynolds jumping from Green Lantern to Deadpool, at least not yet, Jason Momoa said that he’d love to play Wolverine. Guess there’s just something about that role.
Momoa shared as much when he was asked what MCU character he’d love to play while he was in San Antonio at Celebrity Fan Fest. His answer was not vague.
“Wolverine. Oh I’d love to play Wolverine,” he said. He also offered admire to Hugh Jackman, who is now retired from the role, saying “He was phenomenal. I grew up just loving Wolverine.”
As you’re possibly alert, Momoa is presently under contract as Aquaman, so it’s improbable he’s going to be crossing over from DC to Marvel anytime soon. So, while ultimately they’re going to inaugurate a post-Jackman actor in the iconic part, Momoa’s actively a part of the DCEU. As they say, timing is everything.
