    Now I'm picturing Jackman playing Wolverine, but doing that thing you did as a kid where you walk around with shoes on your knees

    And make the accent they give him Newfoundlander and I could die happy right there.

    Letterkenny accent like a 2nd cousin to Newfoundland accent, so that could work too

    All the Canadian superheroes:

    Logan: Fuck off buddy.
    Nelvana: He’s not your buddy, guy!
    CPT Canuck: He’s not your guy, friend!
    Northstar: She’s not your friend, buddy!

    I have no idea who you could cast nowadays that fit the comic Wolverine well enough.

    The movies are never going to replicate the comics, so I think as a concern, it's not a huge one.

    I wouldn't mind if the MCU leaves Logan by the wayside for a little while. The character had a good run and ended on a high note, just let him rest and maybe pay attention to some of the other X-Men. Like Colossus, who's had for more done with him as Deadpool's straight man than ever happened in any of the Fox movies.

    The MCU is the one place the F4 might work, I think. They (and *especially* their A list villains) are too ingrained in the larger world to work alone. Doom needs to be cut off at the knees to work in a world where there's only one mid-tier super team to oppose him, and Galactus should be so lucky. And their B-list is a side show roster of silver age weirdness that the MCU revels in but in a world where sequels are every two years at best a studio isn't going to "waste" a movie on Mole Man or Blastaar when Doctor Doom is *right there.*

    The MCU loves to throw that kind of B-list villains into the grinder so heroes can learn their powers and develop character, or just to hook the audience with an opening action scene, and a multi-faceted omni threat like Doom has proper opposition all around.

    With Doom you could do Secret Wars, which is kind of the other big top tier cosmic crossover event on the scale of Infinity Gauntlet.

    And that would mean that this character is the next Thanos.

    Harper is an amazing actor. Given that the MCU would likely put him either in a B villian role to be killed of immediately or a supporting character who gets 10 minutes of screen time for 5 movies.

    I have never understood why people cared about how tall Jackman was; Logan being short is practically just a sight gag in the comics anyway.

    I still want a Japanese actor to play Wolverine, but if we're okay with another white dude, it's gotta be Christian Kane.

    His entire, collective performance as Eliot Spencer on Leverage is his audition.

    Christian Kane is almost 50.

    They're gonna wanna milk as many movies as possible out of whoever the new Wolverine is. He'll need to be no older than like 35.

    Also, Logan being short is the whole point of his codename. Wolverines are tiny and vicious.

    Also also, Logan should be some variety of mixed Indigenous ancestry. It fits the region and time period he's from, and smooths over some of the awkward parts of his early history.

    You sent me down a quick rabbit hole and man, I don't think I realized just how few well-known Japanese actors there are. Or least how I'd recognize. Ken Watanabe and Hiroyuki Sanada are really the only two I've seen in more than one movie in the last few years that I can find.

    Finding someone akin to a younger Toshiro Mifune or Sonny Chiba is my ideal Wolverine casting.

    Why Japanese? I only really know the character from movies and the 90's cartoon, but isn't his time in Japan spent as a soldier with the Allies? I've got no beef with him being non white, but Japanese in particular seems like it changes the character significantly.

    The thing about the F4 is that they are a family. They got to know each other outside of their civilian professions before they became super heroes. That's story potential not otherwise seen in the MCU.

    Also maybe you could have the Richard's be a mixed race couple?

    I'm not saying we are going to have an autocratic dystopia, but things keep happening that look like they come from an autocratic dystopia.

    There are a variety of reasons why I want William Jackson Harper to be Reed Richards.

    But this is a major one.



    I also want Reed Richards to scream about the TIME KNIFE!
