The story 'Old Man Logan' took place in a future about 50 years later when Wolverine killed the X-Men, thinking that was the villains. The illusions were created by Mysterio and those illusions make him fall into deep depression and swore that he will never pop his claws again.

The major characters that are involved in the 'Old Man Logan' story are Hawkeye, Hulk, Spider-Girl etc. The problem is, Fox did not grant the rights to use those characters in a potential film based on the 'Old Man Logan' story, which caused many concerns from fans and maybe the studio.

In an interview with IGN, Mark Millar recently made comments about the last film, Hugh Jackman will star in.

"They're not important to the story. The way I worked that thing is I actually structured it as, I broke it down mechanically - I figured out going from this part of America to that part of America and what he would encounter along the way, and then I added in the adversities later." - Mark Millar.

Not every character like the X-Men should be in the MCU, because they have their own universe and don't always share the same goals as the Avengers do. In fact, MCU couldn't have been established without Fox since the first X-Men film has been released in the 2000's. Continuing on for almost 15 years. We should be grateful that the characters are there on the big silver screen.

If Hugh Jackman and Fox wanted to do the 'Old Man Logan' story. This is what I consider as replacements since there are a lot of Marvel Studios characters than X-Men characters. Just some suggestions to provide the essence so it would remind us that they did take elements of the 'Old Man Logan' story.

> Hawkeye - Cyclops (Old blind man who's visors are broken. Mark Millar considered him as an companion to Logan after he swore to not put up the claws again. Both of them have history with one another. DOFP the movie has wiped the old franchise so the big characters like Cyclops and Jean can star in future films. Cyclops would be great so the film can develop his characterisation a lot better than his last films. We should consider 'James Marsden' to come back and fix the mistakes that Fox made, making him a leader.)

Do you approve of this?

> Hulk Gang - Weapon X with Sabretooth, Deathstrike and Deadpool, Blob and more (Saved Sabretooth for last. Maybe not kill them but make them unconscious/neutralised and have Deadpool at the secret ending making a joke. Like he did in 'Hulk vs. Wolverine' the animated film. It could be good that this will be the last time Ryan Reynolds collaborate with Hugh Jackman)

Poll

Do you approve of this?

> Ghost Riders - Some mutant delinquents like Toad etc.

Poll

Do you approve of this?

> Red Skull - Omega Red (Both characters are Super-Soldiers but one is associated with more of the X-Men, wanted to kill Wolverine for a long time. One last time he gets to face Wolverine (Hugh Jackman))

Poll

Do you approve of this?

> White Queen - Still Emma Frost from X-Men FC. Or maybe Jean (Both are telepaths)

Poll

Do you approve of this?

> Black Bolt - Nightcrawler (Teleportation of bringing Cyclops and Wolverine to safety from an attack)

Poll

Do you approve of this?

> Mysterio - Mastermind (Both create illusions to break Wolverine emotionally, one of them is more associated with the X Men)

Poll

Do you approve of this?

> X-Men - Morlocks (Maybe. When Wolverine was on a mission with Jubilee, he could end up where the Morlocks are, with Wolverine thinking that is the Brotherhood. Accidently killed the remaining members of the Morlocks and Jubilee. This could be the wink when Logan actually in the story kills the X-Men under the illusions created by Mysterio)

Poll

Do you approve of this?

> Iron Man suit - Angel or Archangel (A form of transport if Archangel snaps out of killing Wolverine)

Poll

Do you approve of this?

> Abraham Donovan - Professor X - Confirmed to star in the film by Patrick Stewart (Provides the advice to Wolverine, maybe)

Poll

Do you approve of this?

> Hulk Gang at the end - Soldiers (Guarding the Weapon X facility)

Poll

Do you approve of this?

> Hulk - Dr. Abraham Cornelius (Person who is responsible for the adamantium bonding and wants Wolverine for cloning while the rest of Weapon X tries to stop Wolverine from Abe bonding adamantium to other subjects, referencing the comic 'Death of Wolverine'. If Fox doesn't want to recast another Wolverine, this is how they should end the trilogy.)

Poll

Do you approve of this?

> Bruce Banner Jr. - X-23 (Hugh Jackman can pass on the gene rather than recasting another actor, if Fox doesn't want to. Wolverine manages to save one of the clones X-23 as a child. At the end of the film, he could ride in the sunset with her at the back, adopting her as a daughter)

These are just some suggestions of replacing the Marvel Studio characters with Fox's characters. Us fans will thank Hugh Jackman for bringing Wolverine to life and we will be sad to see you go. Feel free to express your opinions here. Don't want to start an argument. What do you think guys? :)

Wolverine 3 releases March 3rd 2017.
