As we are all very well aware by now, Australian superstar Hugh Jackman is stepping down from his role as Wolverine after his final appearance as the character in the new movie Logan. This has led to many fans giving their opinions on which actor should take over the role, with some very interesting and exciting rumours doing the rounds.
One such rumour has come from the Wolverine star himself, as Hugh Jackman has suggested a certain Bollywood superstar as having what it takes to impress as the next Wolverine actor. Hugh was talking about the future of the character, when he suggested that Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan could be the perfect choice to take over as Wolverine.
Jackman explained, "I think I'll be fine with it, I hope other people play it, maybe Shah Rukh Khan could play it, who knows? The comic book series is so good because you've had so many people interpreting this role. I think there's like six origin stories. Everyone puts their own stamp on it."
He added, "This is a great character. I'll be really interested to see how I'll feel about it, I want it to be really great... but, I don't want it to be that much better than me. A little bit better is fine, but if everyone were like 'Oh thank God, now...' I might find that a little difficult."
While we cannot wait to see who does eventually take on the role of Wolverine in the future, we do hope that they shelve the character for a few years, before then deciding to bring a new take on Wolverine.
