Could Shah Rukh Khan Be The Next Wolverine? Hugh Jackman Certainly Thinks So!

It’s been 17 years since the X-Men franchise hit the big screen. The first movie ‘X-Men’ released in 2000 and became an instant hit, thus spawning a multi-billion franchise. The overall franchise has had mixed reviews especially for the last two films released in the series. However, the latest addition ‘Logan’ aims to change all that and be the best ever.

Logan marks the last time that Hugh Jackman will reprise the role of famously moody Wolverine. Hugh Jackman plays Wolverine for the 10th time and it will be his last.

Along with Hugh Jackman, the movie also stars  Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant. The film is directed by James Mangold who previously directed the Oscar-nominated film ‘Walk The Line’. The trailer is certainly looking pretty deadly and dangerous.

In a recent candid interview with Rajeev Masand to promote the film’s release on March 3rd, Hugh Jackman spilled out some beans of who could play Wolverine next. The answer is closer to home than you’d think.

Yes, he was talking about Shah Rukh Khan!

Talking about other people playing Wolverine, a character defined his place in the industry, he lightheartedly says “I think I’ll be fine with it. I hope other people play it. Maybe Shah Rukh Khan could play it. Who knows.”

Fancy a desi mutant in the next film?! 😛
