Fox I am pleading with you guys DO NOT RECAST WOLVERINE!
This is something I feel very strongly about and I see no reason to recast Wolverine at any point within the next 20 or so years. There are so many reasons to agree with my point of view it's not even FUNNY!
But let us get to the point right out of the gate...
Let's start by thinking how AMAZING it would be to see Deadpool on screen with Wolverine and best believe that has to do with fan excitement. This is a film that all of us fans have been waiting for and are FINALLY getting!! The Merc With A Mouth will be gracing our screens next year with the most faithful iteration that FOX could possibly do by including a similar origin, perfect costume, and free reign to break the fourth wall with all of the profanity Deadpool fans could possibly hope for. Since it is also in the X-Universe and not some standalone unconnected film we will undoubtedly see Ryan Reynolds interacting with some of our favorite X-Men(X-Force, Wolverine cameo, Apocalypse) either gracing the screen for the first time or being on screen again in a more faithful(or new iteration) way.
Which brings me to my next point...
NOOOOOOOPPPPEEEEEE THATS NOT MY POINT! DAMMIT DEADPOOL GET OUTTA HERE MAN! HERE IT IS...
GAMBIT IN THE HOUSE!!
He could easily be the new lead for X-Men films. He has the acting chops and the draw to lead his own standalone X-Men movies set in the X-Universe just like Ryan Reynolds can. This is a character that is visually stunning played by an actor that all demographics(to put it simply) like to look at. We have a hero that was actually in the same movie that "Deadpool" first appeared in that has been completely erased from the timeline and all true fans recent memories. But he is set to be played by Channing Tatum who has proved in recent years to be one of the biggest box office draws in any genre he chooses to be in.
But Beau for real man, WHAT DOES ANY OF THIS HAVE TO DO WITH WOLVERINE NOT BEING RECAST???(SAY IT IN YOUR BEST RYAN REYNOLDS VOICE IN YOUR HEAD)
Well to be fairly blunt FOX and the X-Universe DO NOT NEED WOLVERINE as a character to draw in their large crowds and succeed at the box office because they have two huge names that can play their characters for multiple installments in the franchise. Not to even mention the younger Jean, Cyclops, and Storm, which if they are received well can continue the new timeline and show how we get to the point of when they all become the characters we recognize.
Which brings me to my final point...
OLD MAN LOGAN!!
If they can continue to carry the franchise with the enormous success that it has seen so far without recasting Wolverine then we can eventually down the road possibly see an "Old Man Logan" story carry out on screen played by none other then Wolverine himself Hugh Jackman.
I mean seriously could you even imagine the excitement that would ensue in the geek community if after many years FOX announced that Hugh would be returning as the character that helped launch him to super-stardom. It would make all of our jaws drop and would make for a killer steroid into the franchise, by that I mean even if it was doing well still it would make it even that much more profitable.
So that is my two cents regarding Hugh retracting the claws for "One Last Time". But maybe I just don't want to see the character recast because I grew up with this iteration and I truly love how he has been portrayed. I mean this would also make a lot of sense because I don't see FOX going the SONY route and just rebooting after Apocalypse. Keep the timeline going and years from now bring the man himself back!
