AceShowbiz - Henry Cavill may trade his Superman cape for adamantium claws. The British actor, who has played the Last Son of Krypton since 2013's "Man of Steel", is said to portray Wolverine and make his debut in "Captain Marvel 2".
The rumor first originated from YouTube channel The Quartering. And while the words of Cavill playing the X-Men character may sound pretty outlandish, Wolverine and Captain Marvel crossover is already happening in the comics.
The two characters' big screen crossover is also made possible now following 20th Century Fox's acquisition by Disney in 2019. The Mouse House has begun distributing Marvel movies in 2010 since its acquisition of Marvel Entertainment in 2009.
Neither Marvel nor Cavill has responded to the rumor of him possibly appearing in the "Captain Marvel" sequel, but this is not the first time he's reported to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Back in August 2019, there's report that he's being recruited by the studio for a future film project.
Should this be happen, Cavill will make a leap from the DC Extended Universe to its biggest rival, MCU. The 36-year-old hunk gained prominence and international recognition for portraying Superman in "Man of Steel". He reprised the role in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" (2016) and "Justice League" (2017).
The new Batman standalone movie, however, has been in limbo following the lukewarm reception of "Justice League", prompting speculation that Cavill might have hung up his Superman cape. However, in a 2019 interview with Men's Health magazine, he insisted, "I've not given up the role. There's a lot I have to give for Superman yet."
"Captain Marvel 2", which has Brie Larson attached to reprise her role as Carol Danvers and her alter ego, is expected to arrive in 2022.
