Zac Efron is protracting the iconic trio of claws as everybody’s favorite member of the X-Men, Wolverine, who up to this point has solely been portrayed by Hugh Jackman in the movies, in some new fan art.
The image comes to us from the Instagram page of everybody’s favorite online artist, BossLogic. In the rendering, Zac Efron is a noticeably younger Wolverine that today’s Hugh Jackman, though he is still sporting the iconic white tank top, spiked hair and dog tags. He has also been roughed up a bit and looks ready to go another round with whoever it was dumb enough to get into a fight with the quick healing hero.
You can see the cool, new concept art for yourself below:
What do you make of this concept art? Does it convince you that Zac Efron could step in for Hugh Jack as Wolverine if called upon to act by Disney? Or is there someone else you had in mind for the job? We would love to hear your thoughts, so feel free to hit us up in the comments below!
In the meantime, the next X-Men-related movie hitting theaters would be Dark Phoenix. Here is the synopsis:
In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.
Dark Phoenix is directed by Simon Kinberg and stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain.
The film is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019.
The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
Here are the 9 theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
