Jason Momoa reveals he would "love" to play Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The actor is currently DC's Aquaman and has made the studio a bunch of money doing so. The Arthur Curry standalone movie was a surprise box office smash for Warner Bros. who ended up with the biggest movie in DC's history. With that being said, will Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige give Momoa a chance at taking on the Wolverine role in the MCU?
Celebrity Fan Fest in San Antonio took place over the weekend and Jason Momoa was there and took questions from the audience. When asked about which MCU superhero he would like to play, he quickly said, "I'd love to play Wolverine..." Momoa went on to say, "(Hugh Jackman) was phenomenal. I grew up just loving Wolverine." The crowd went wild after Momoa answered the question and now people are probably starting to think about the possibilities of the actor taking over the iconic role.
It's pretty bold for Jason Momoa to say he would like to take on the Wolverine role. Marvel fans are fiercely loyal to Hugh Jackman and still wish that he'll someday return to the role. With that being said, Jackman has stated numerous times that he is finished playing Weapon X on the big screen, much to the disappointment of Ryan Reynolds who really, really wants to team-up with the actor for a Marvel project. Who knows? Maybe with Disney now on board, Jackman might consider making a cameo to please his good friend.
As for Jason Momoa, he recently revealed there is a story in place for Aquaman 2. The actor was shocked by the success of the first installment and is eager to begin working on the follow up. Director James Wan will more than likely return, but he decided to take a lengthy break after finishing Aquaman. He director put a lot of work into making the movie look as visually pleasing as he could and cut zero corners when doing so. As a result, he was pretty burnt out after finishing everything up. While he hasn't confirmed whether or not he'll return, DC fans want him back behind the camera.
Jason Momoa has the right look to pull off Wolverine, but is it something MCU fans would gravitate towards? If the reaction to his answer at the Celebrity Fan Fest is any indication, the answer is easily a yes. Fans are excited and starting to get a little impatient when thinking about what and when Kevin Feige is going to work on bringing the X-Men and other Fox properties to the MCU. For now, it looks like it's going to be a bit more of a wait. You can check out video of Jason Momoa at Celebrity Fan Fest below, thanks to Jermiah Marshall's Twitter account.
