Taron Egerton says he is hoping for 'shot' to play Wolverine
His last turn as Wolverine was in 2017s Logan.Egerton, who won a Golden Globe award for his performance as British icon Elton John in Rocketman 2019, is currently promoting his Apple TV series Black Bird.
The actor, known for his role as Eggsy in the two ''Kingsman '' films, told New York Times that he met Feige and is hoping for an opportunity to play the iconic superhero, which was earlier portrayed by Hugh Jackman in multiple ''X-Men'' movies.
''I don't think it would be wrong to say that. I'd be excited but I'd be apprehensive as well, because Hugh is so associated with the role that I'd wonder if it'd be very difficult for someone else to do it... But hopefully if it does come around, they'll give me a shot,'' the 32-year-old actor said.
