New Petition Calls For Marvel To Cast Danny DeVito As The Next Wolverine


For some reason, fans believe that their silly petitions will have an impact on the decisions that the higher-ups of billion dollar conglomerates make. The latest comes courtesy of user Ring Arius, who’s asked Marvel Studios to consider It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia star Danny DeVito to play Wovlerine if the character were to ever pop up in the MCU.

Given the multiverse we could be introduced to in Spider-Man: Far From Home in July, it may be possible that we see Wolverine, Deadpool, and other characters Disney has acquired from Fox cross over into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But seeing the goofy comic actor, who played The Penguin in Tim Burton’s 1992 Batman Returns, don some pointed knuckles is hardly likely.

Still, the petition is picking up steam. At the time of writing, it’s garnered over 6,000 signatures and already surpassed its first benchmark goal by over 1,000 participants.

“The only man able to take the throne after Hugh Jackman,” Ring Arius says. “We believe that if Wolverine is to make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that the only man able to pull it off is Danny [DeVito].”

Fan petitions have recently become a new and (ridiculously) popular means of communal complaining. At this time, there are ones dedicated to remaking the final season of Game of Thrones, getting rid of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, and replacing Robert Pattinson as the next Batman.

Out of all of these, this one seems to be the most ludicrous, so perhaps Ring Arius is attempting to satirize the recent trend. But that’s unlikely.

For the sake of argument, could you see DeVito as an older, fatter Logan/Wolverine? Personally, I think the multiverse would have to extend pretty far out there to let the It’s Always Sunny star land that role, but let us know what you think in the comments below!
