However, at this moment, can you think of a greater possible honor (in terms of comic book movie casting, specifically) than following in the footsteps of an actor who redefined a classic superhero role on screen forever. I am, of course, talking about Hugh Jackman, who said goodbye to the role of Wolverine with the stunning, Oscar-nominated Logan in 2017, leaving the door open for another to inherit the claws for the MCU’s official reboot of the X-Men movie franchise. Why not Joe Manganiello?
Now, once more, I should admit that this casting suggestion is not an original of mine. However, if we reroute the actor’s filmography and, again, point to his portrayals of animalistic mutant creatures (True Blood), sarcastic jerks (Magic Mike and How I Met Your Mother), and stone cold badasses (all of them, really), it is clear that the choice is as solid as Adamantium.
