Hollywood star Henry Cavill may have lost his role in the DCU as Superman, but he has no doubt set some high standards for the next actor who would take the mantle of the Kryptonian superhero. The same goes for his performance as the Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s The Witcher. Despite parting ways from some of the best work of his career, Cavill is still in line for some prominent projects as he is among the fan favorites to be the next James Bond in the spy action thriller franchise. Along with James Bond, he has also announced a live-action Warhammer 40,000 series.
Just like the Man of Steel star, Hugh Jackman has also become a fan-favorite actor for portraying the X-Men character Wolverine. It is hard for fans to imagine anyone else taking over the role from Jackman. He is set to reprise his role in the upcoming Deadpool threequel. However, before his comeback, new fan art caused a frenzy among fans that showed The Tudors star as Wolverine.
Henry Cavill Goes Viral in Wolverine Fan Art
Followed by the past few rough months for Henry Cavill fans, the actor announced that he would be working on a Warhammer 40,000 series with Amazon. With his official departure from the DCEU, fans also started wondering if they would see him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While there has been no confirmation so far, there are a number of characters fans have in mind for the Superman actor. And one of these characters also includes Logan, aka Wolverine. Hugh Jackman is set to make his MCU debut with Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 3.
However, it is unclear if he would continue to portray the character in the MCU or if his venture to portray the character would be limited to the Deadpool threequel only. Many believe that the X-Men star would be enacting a variant of Wolverine, and the studio would most likely recast the character for future MCU projects.

A fanart is also going viral on Instagram that shows the Justice League star as Wolverine. The artwork by ApexForm gives a look at what Cavill’s Wolverine would look like. The fan art highlights the iconic claws of the titular hero and a wound that reveals the metal underneath his flesh.
Henry Cavill Has a Marvel Superhero in Mind
While his fans have a long list of Marvel characters Henry Cavill could play in the MCU, The Witcher actor also has a character he wants to play. During an interview, he said that he is not interested in playing a character that is “already being played by someone else” as they’re doing an amazing job with their characters.
However, he has a character in mind he would love to play. He said, “I have seen the various rumors about Captain Britain, and that would be loads of fun to do a cool, modernized version of that.” He shared that the character could be modernized similarly as done with Captain America. And he would love to portray the superhero as he loves “being British.”
Captain Britain was first introduced in Captain Britain Weekly #1 in 1976 and represents the U.K., as Captain America does for the United States. He receives his powers from magician Merlyn and has made several appearances in comics, video games, and animated Marvel shows. However, the character is yet to appear in the MCU.
