It has been a decade since director Matthew Vaughn tackled the X-Men franchise with X-Men: First Class but that doesn’t mean he can’t have an opinion about who should be the new Wolverine actor.
Hugh Jackman is forever linked to the character but so many people have wondered who will take over the role when Disney decides to bring the X-Men into the MCU. Matthew Vaughn has some ideas and he’s giving us three different possibilities.
Matthew Vaughn gave his choices while promoting The King’s Man over at Comic Book. He gave two choices that have seemed to be fan favorites to take over the role while the third may have been floated around a little bit and, after seeing it in print, maybe it should be floated around more:
“Well, he’s got older now, but I would say Tom Hardy would have…been awesome. I think Taron [Egerton] could do it in his sleep. Aaron Taylor-Johnson could do it as well. I mean, I think Aaron or Taron would be my first two choices could do it really well.”
Matthew Vaughn gave some top-notch options for who should take over the role moving forward. He’s worked with Taron Egerton on the Kingsman franchise so he could vouch for his physicality and work ethic.
Of course, Hugh Jackman will always be Wolverine to multiple generations. But, unlike Jackman, Egerton has the right stature and look to pull off the popular character. The Rocketman star and The Greatest Showman star share some commonalities like their showmanship so Egerton taking up the mantle from Jackman wouldn’t be a major deal.
It has also been a fan-cast choice in the years following the release of Logan.
Tom Hardy and Aaron Taylor-Johnson were great choices as well. Just like the Kingsman star, Hardy and Taylor-Johnson have experience in the action genre with the former playing Bane and Venom in The Dark Knight Rises and the Venom series respectively.
And the latter actor took on speedster Pietro Maximoff in the MCU for Avengers: Age of Ultron but landing the role of Kraven The Hunter, might prevent him from playing Wolverine if it were ever an option.
Who do YOU think should play Wolverine?

Empire Magazine has unveiled the covers for their upcoming issue and one of them showcases The Batman’s Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman as she grips her iconic whip.
Gracing the cover of Empire Magazine tends to be a stop for most films that are gearing up to begin their promotional tour and with The Batman releasing in a matter of months, it makes sense that the film would grace the December issue in one form or another.
For the magazine’s December issue previewing 2022’s movie lineup, The Batman received the cover treatment for three of the December issues.
One gives us a close-up look at Seline Kyle aka Catwoman and it provides us with a great look at her suit and features the first image of Catwoman’s signature whip.
You can check out the covers below!
Per the film’s official synopsis, “It’s not just a call… It’s a warning. From Warner Bros. Pictures comes Matt Reeves’ “The Batman,” starring Robert Pattinson in the dual role of Gotham City’s vigilante detective and his alter ego, reclusive billionaire Bruce Wayne.
Two years of stalking the streets as the Batman (Robert Pattinson), striking fear into the hearts of criminals, has led Bruce Wayne deep into the shadows of Gotham City.
With only a few trusted allies—Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis), Lt. James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright)—amongst the city’s corrupt network of officials and high-profile figures, the lone vigilante has established himself as the sole embodiment of vengeance amongst his fellow citizens.
When a killer targets Gotham’s elite with a series of sadistic machinations, a trail of cryptic clues sends the World’s Greatest Detective on an investigation into the underworld, where he encounters such characters as Selina Kyle/aka Catwoman (Zoë Kravitz), Oswald Cobblepot/aka the Penguin (Colin Farrell), Carmine Falcone (John Turturro), and Edward Nashton/aka the Riddler (Paul Dano).
As the evidence begins to lead closer to home and the scale of the perpetrator’s plans becomes clear, Batman must forge new relationships, unmask the culprit, and bring justice to the abuse of power and corruption that has long plagued Gotham City.”
Do YOU like Zoe Kravitz’s Catwoman look and the other covers? The Batman hits screens on March 4th, 2022.

Oscar-winning writer-director Spike Lee is getting in league with Netflix. It has been announced that the filmmaker has signed a multi-year deal with the streamer.
Spike Lee previously collaborated with Netflix on the war drama Da 5 Bloods and back in 2020 and he also had other projects that were housed at the streamer.
Per “Deadline“, Spike Lee entered into a creative partnership after the success of those projects, including the series She’s Gotta Have It, Rodney King, and See You Yesterday, which he produced. Spike Lee had this to say about the partnership:
“There Is No Better Way For Me And My Company 40 Acres And A Mule Filmworks To Begin The New Year Than Renew Our Partnership With Ted, Scott And Tendo-Da Fearless Leaders Of NETFLIX. Besides My Joints, We Together Will Focus On The New Diverse Storytellers. YOUTH MUST BE SERVED. And Dat’s Da Truth, Ruth. YA-DIG? SHO-NUFF.”
Netflix is the perfect home for someone like Spike Lee because his artistic freedom will be able to flourish there without much input from the platform.
Lee is still one of the most provocative directors working in the industry today so I’m excited for what he has in store at the streamer.
I just rewatched 1989’s Do The Right Thing just last week and if you need a reminder of how powerful he is as a filmmaker, just give that movie another watch. You won’t regret it.

Alita: Battle Angel focused on Alita (Rosa Salazar), a cyborg who was awakened with no memory and was taken in by Dr. Dyson Ido (Christoph Waltz), who recognized the heart and soul of a young woman with an extraordinary past.
The story clearly set the stage for a sequel, but there are a lot of factors at play that means it might never come to fruition.
Alita: Battle Angel does have a passionate fanbase who would be eager for a sequel and that’s something the cast and crew want to deliver if they can.
While speaking with THR for a feature revolving around The Book of Boba Fett, Alita: Battle Angel director Robert Rodriguez revealed that a sequel is still possible.
— Jim and I talked about it recently, and we’re still very interested. I told him, ‘Let me deliver Boba, and then let’s figure out a pitch.’
James Cameron had been developing Alita: Battle Angel for quite some time, but his work on the Avatar sequels caused him to pass the reins to Robert Rodriguez.
Cameron remained on board as producer and co-writer, and still clearly wants to continue the franchise.
The release of Alita: Battle Angel was met with mixed reviews and although it grossed more than $400 million worldwide, it wasn’t exactly the blockbuster numbers that 20th Century Fox had hoped.
Fox’s subsequent acquisition by Disney may also be a stumbling block, but Robert Rodriguez told Forbes last year that the Alita: Battle Angel sequel could find a home on Disney+. “I think anything is possible.
Disney bought Fox, and they have Disney Plus, so that is worth the conversation. I know other people would love to see another, and I would love to do another one,” Rodriguez said.
“As far as where it would go or how it would be made, I think streaming has opened up many opportunities such as sequels.
It’s already a pre-sold concept, it’s already got a built-in audience that wants to see it, and then it’s delivered to them in a way that’s the easiest for them to consume.” Would you still like to see a sequel to Alita: Battle Angel?
The Book of Boba Fett will debut on Disney+ on December 29th.
