Chris Evans is Captain America, but Joe and Anthony Russo say he would be a good Wolverine.
In an interview with ComicBook.com the Avengers: Endgame directors were asked who would play Chris Evans in a multiverse MCU movie. Joe Russo soon mentioned Wolverine and explained why.
“Evans is very strong physically and controls his body very well,” said Joe Russo. “He’s a great actor and, don’t take it bad, but isn’t a real Captain America. Steve Rogers is very calm and calm, but Chris is charismatic and funny. He brings a lot of energy to the set, I would like to see him as a Wolverine.”
Live-action Wolverine has been played by Hugh Jackman since X-Men (2000). Now that X-Men is part of the MCU, we could see Marvel looking for a new Wolverine. Especially now that Jackman was hanging his claws on the willows after Logan†
Chris Evans as Wolverine doesn’t seem to be happening, he’s already played two Marvel roles, Johnny Storm in Fantastic Four (2005).
Evans would like a return to The Human Torch himself. “Wouldn’t that be great?” he told MTV News† “Nobody ever talked about that. I haven’t looked like this in a long time, that was 15, 20 years ago. I’m getting old.”
“That character is really great,” he added. “But aren’t they doing something new with the Fantastic Four? I don’t think it would happen. I would love it. It would be easier to sell than if I returned as Cap. I had a great experience with Cap. But Johnny Storm, there’s a lot more to it. That was before Marvel became what it is today.”
