The impressive artwork shows what Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe could look like if he were to replace Hugh Jackman as Marvel’s new Wolverine.
In 2017, Hugh Jackman, as well as Marvel fans in general, were able to say goodbye to the one and only big-screen incarnation of Wolverine in the form of the film Logan, which earned an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2018. Now that Hugh Jackman seems to be officially done with the iconic Marvel anti-hero, fans are still trying to find the perfect replacement, since Marvel Studios has now obtained the rights to use the character and his fellow X-Men in future movies.
There’s still no telling when fans will finally be able to see Wolverine and the X-Men join the Marvel Cinematic Universe at this time but a new piece of artwork shows off a surprisingly good candidate for the position. In a recent interview, Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe humorously addressed the possibility of him taking the iconic role from Hugh Jackman. What seemed like a one-off joke has now spawned this exciting artwork that features the Harry Potter star becoming the new Wolverine. Check out the impressive image from Instagram by username “Omelete” below.
Since starring in eight Harry Potter films, the last of which hit theaters in July 2011, Daniel Radcliffe has been starring in more independent films than big blockbusters. The actor has even yet to make an appearance in the Wizard World spin-off franchise Fantastic Beasts, which released its second installment just a few months ago and has a few more installments already planned for release in the future. Given the incredible imagery in the artwork above, the role of the MCU’s Wolverine would be a very intriguing new role for the actor to play on the big screen and very different from his role as the famous wizard
Actor Ryan Reynolds has jokingly tried to get Hugh Jackman to reprise his iconic X-Men role in one of the multiple Deadpool films but the actor has yet to return to the role outside of any X-Men films.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
