‘X-Men’ Producer Talks Recasting Wolverine For The MCU

X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner recently spoke about recasting Wolverine for the MCU and if Hugh Jackman could return.

Marvel is probably looking to resurrect Wolverine once the Disney deal with Fox completes. Lauren Shuler Donner, producer for the X-Men franchise, recently spoke with ComicBook.com about this topic and if Hugh Jackman could return under Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige:

“Hugh, just the physicality of it all, just to bulk up. This man worked so hard to bulk up, would get up at four in the morning to bulk and eat protein meals every two hours because his natural state, they used to call him Worm when he was a kid. So his natural state is a very skinny guy. Once you reach a certain age, the body just won’t go anymore. I think he was wise to say, ‘I’m at that point. I can’t do it.’ Now, that doesn’t mean he can’t come back as older Wolverine. You never know. Future Wolverine, you never know. I don’t know what Kevin [Feige]’s thinking honestly. I don’t even think Kevin knows.”
