Giant Freakin Robot is reporting that their sources tell them Karl Urban is in the running for the part of Wolverine in the MCU. Taron Egerton (Kingsman) is apparently their top choice at present, but it’s looking like they won’t be able to get him. In which case, the highly coveted gig could go to Urban instead. The New Zealand performer has a lot of superhero cred as it is, given his turns in Dredd and the aforementioned Amazon Prime show, but becoming Logan would make him a legend of the genre.
Of course, as Marvel lovers will know, Urban has already been part of the MCU, as he played Hela’s henchman Skurge in Thor: Ragnarok. That was a one-and-done job for the actor, though, so the door is open for him to take on a much bigger role in the franchise in the future. Similar to Gemma Chan, who also portrayed a supporting villain (Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel) before becoming a leading hero elsewhere (Sersi in Eternals).
