There are dozens of superheroes we would have liked to see join the ensemble of Avengers: Infinity War but directors of the upcoming sequel have chosen fan-favorite, Wolverine as their choice if they were to include anyone else in the already packed line-up of heroes.
The Russo brothers spoke with GamesRadar regarding the superhero they would’ve have wanted to use but were not able to. Joe responded with: “It would probably be Wolverine”, to which Anthony responded: “Yeah, maybe one day…”.
With the impending Fox and Disney sale that would eventually lead to Disney‘s acquisition of the X-Men and its related characters, this could likely happen. However, with the critically acclaimed Logan capping off the Wolverine saga (or not, as these statements could suggest otherwise), it’s a wonder if the character would be recast or built from the ground up ala Spider-Man Homecoming
It would be phenomenal to see the Wolverine interact with the characters of the MCU but having anyone other than Hugh Jackman would likely cause a riot. Logan ended the narrative of the iconic character beautifully to the point in which the Academy was compelled to nominate the film for Best Adapted Screenplay, a category that isn’t usually synonymous with superhero films.
Nonetheless, there is a myriad of characters aside from Wolverine from Fox’s current banner that would serve as powerful allies in the MCU. Even if Wolverine were to be a part of the MCU, it looks like a ground-up reboot would be the best option if despite the possibility of Marvel having to deal with angry fans banging at their door (in today’s term, that means angrily @-ing on Twitter).
