Hugh Jackman Thinks Tom Hardy Could Replace Him as Wolverine

With Mad Max: Fury Road a big hit and the best-reviewed blockbuster of the year, it's probably no surprise that star Tom Hardy's name comes up almost every time fans want to fantasy-cast a movie.

Today, though, The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman revealed that he could see Hardy as a good, younger Wolverine.

"I don't want to make it too easy on the studio to replace me," Jackman joked, saying that he is often asked about what younger actors might do a good job, but hasn't actually thought about it much.

Jackman will next be seen in a still-untitled Wolverine solo film expected to be his last. Most of the buzz around the film so far indicates that it will be based on the Old Man Logan story from the comics.

Hugh Jackman will pop his claws one last time when the sequel hits theaters on March 3, 2017.
