Hugh Jackman Handpicks Hypothetical Wolverine Successor | Wolverine

Hugh Jackman has been talking about hanging up the claws for good, and he was recently asked if he had any thoughts who should play Wolverine after him. He had a phenomenal answer -- one that will please certain fandoms, for sure.

I haven’t really given it a lot of thought. I’ve been asked that question a lot, and I’m always like, ‘I don’t wanna make it too easy on the studio to replace me, you know! I’ve still got one more to do! [...] he’s younger than me for sure - I think Tom Hardy would be a great Wolverine.

Tom Hardy is clearly in demand these days, pulling double duty in the recent film Legend and being hotly tipped to play the next James Bond. I guess there are worse choices, but I will definitely be sad to see Jackman go! 

Jackman has played Wolverine in seven X-Men films -- including a cameo in X-Men: First Class -- and, like he said, he has one more solo film due to come out in 2017. 

Who do you think should replace him when he inevitably leaves the X-Men franchise? Is Tom Hardy a good pick for Wolverine? Should they retire what is, arguably, their most lucrative character with Jackman?
