Henry Cavill As Wolverine

Henry Cavill As Wolverine: Henry Cavill, known for his roles as Superman and Geralt of Rivia, has been a fan favorite for the role of Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) since the moment Disney acquired the rights to the X-Men via its purchase of 20th Century Fox. While Hugh Jackman portrayed the iconic X-Men character for 17 years and will reprise the role in Deadpool 3, fans have been eagerly waiting for a new actor to take on the mantle of Wolverine in the MCU.

Cavill has emerged as an ideal choice for the role of Wolverine due to his physique and acting prowess. With his portrayal of Geralt in The Witcher, he has already demonstrated his ability to create a brooding, intense character. He has worked on action films like Man of Steel and Mission: Impossible – Fallout, which may be useful for the X-Men franchise’s fast-paced fight scenes.

Cavill’s addition to the MCU has the potential to bring some fresh blood to the franchise, as he has not been involved in any Marvel movies yet. He could help inject new life into the X-Men franchise, which has seen some ups and downs over the years.

Fans are dying to see him make the jump over to the MCU and their visions have finally come to life thanks to the work of a talented artist who has helped give us a look at what Cavill could look like in the role of Wolverine. The fac-casting of Henry Cavill as Wolverine continues with some more impressive modern technology bringing the possibility to life. A deepfake video takes scenes from the much-maligned X-Men Origins: Wolverine and inserts Cavill into the role. Replacing Hugh Jackman as Wolverine will be no easy task and this video shows why. While an image of Cavill as Wolverine is one thing, seeing him step into Jackman’s role and deliver his lines doesn’t work as effectively. While it could be a case of poor attempt at deepfake, it is just hard to picture anyone else embodying that role the way Jackman has.

Whether or not Cavill is tapped as Wolverine, Logan is a huge role for Marvel to fill when the MCU explores the X-Men. While some of Jackman’s X-Men movies received mixed reviews, his performance has always been heavily praised. With Jackman being synonymous with Wolverine to many, re-casting the role is a significant challenge given the reputation the next actor would have to live up to. Even with him returning to the iconic role for Deadpool 3, it seems like only a matter of time before some new actor will have to take over the role. However, while it would likely never happen, this bizarre new AI art of Cavill as a horror-inspired Wolverine would certainly be an interesting way for Marvel Studios to take the character in a new direction.
