Scott Eastwood throws his hat in the ring to replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine

The Pacific Rim Uprising star is working to convince Marvel to let him pick up the claws and carry the character forward in future X-Men films.

During an interview with, Eastwood stated his dream role is to play Weapon X. 

“I mean, Logan! You gotta give it to Wolverine! Wolverine, all day.” –Scott Eastwood

Logan’s last appearance was in his standalone “Logan” film, which followed an older, dying Logan in a distant future where nearly all mutants were dead. Prior to that, Logan showed up in a surprise action sequence during a climactic point in X-Men: Apocalypse. No dialogue, but a brutally violent adamantium fight sequence introduced Logan to the young class of X-Men for the first time (as far as timelines are concerned).


No telling just when Logan will show up again in the X-Men universe, or to which actor will step up to the role. As for the franchise of X-Men films themselves, 2018 is jam packed full of huge titles such as New Mutants, Deadpool 2, and Dark Phoenix with X-Force coming shortly after that, possibly in 2019.
