With Hugh Jackman’s record-breaking tenure as the Wolverine seemingly over, all eyes have turned on who’ll be next to wield the claws. Could Disney cast a total unknown as Jackman was back when he was chosen? Or should they instead opt for a big name? Instagram artist BossLogic evidently favours the latter, as his new fan art, which you can see below, imagines how John Wick star Keanu Reeves could look as the iconic X-Man.
Reeves as Wolverine, that’d be quite a way to reboot the character, wouldn’t it? Would he have the physique for the role, though? He’s tall, slender, and very keen on martial arts. But not a body builder, so perhaps not the best fit for the human tank that is Wolverine. Ultimately, it’s neither here nor there, as in all likelihood, it’ll always be a fantasy.
However, even if that casting dream is out of reach, there’s still a very real chance that Reeves could appear in the MCU. The actor has reportedly been in talks (for what seems like an eternity) to join the franchise in some capacity, with the most likely bet as a rebooted Ghost Rider. Post-Endgame, there are plenty of vacancies for new stars as RDJ is gone, Chris Evans is gone, Jackman is gone – admittedly in a different movie, but the point stands. There’s lots of room for Keanu.
Digging this Wolverine fan art? Leave a comment with your impressions in the usual section below. Impressions on the fan art, not the three impersonations of notable people you can do. Don’t do those. Can you even do an impression when your audience can’t hear you? I’m going to nip this tangent in the bud before it spirals out of control any further.
