Depart a Remark
The 20th Century Fox period of the X-Males movie franchise is over, and sometime the Marvel Cinematic Universe will introduce the mutant superheroes and supervillains which have ran across the Marvel Comics universe for many years. Just lately, it was rumored that Shia LaBeouf was being checked out to play Iceman, and whereas that hasn’t been formally confirmed in any means in anyway, what if the Transformers actor was chosen to play Wolverine as a substitute?
That’s the situation graphic artist BossLogic has envisioned, and you may see his tackle Shia LaBeouf taking part in Wolverine beneath.
That’s not too shabby. From the adamantium claws popped out to the bullet wounds to the cigar, this can be a charming picture of what Shia LaBeouf channeling Wolverine would appear like. After all, now we have to go one step additional and picture what LaBeouf would appear like as Wolverine carrying his basic yellow and blue costume. If there’s a technique the MCU’s Wolverine can stand out from Hugh Jackman’s incarnation, it’s by donning an outfit just like what he wore within the comics slightly than sticking with black leather-based.
Nonetheless, identical to with Iceman, there’s nothing to counsel Shia LaBeouf is being checked out to play Wolverine within the MCU. Nonetheless, as soon as an concept is planted, there’s at the very least an opportunity it might make its solution to somebody concerned with casting. And this isn’t the primary time that LaBeouf’s been advised for a Marvel function, as he’s additionally been thrown round as a possible candidate for Moon Knight, who’s getting his personal Disney+ sequence.
As far as Iceman is worried, following the Shia LaBeouf casting rumor, Colton Haynes threw his identify into the proverbial hat for the frosty function. Since Iceman (actual identify Bobby Drake) got here out of the closet in 2012 and Haynes can also be homosexual, that will be a great way to supply illustration each within the MCU and in actual life. Plus, Haynes already has a bunch of superhero expertise below his belt from his time taking part in Roy Harper, a.ok.a. Arsenal, on Arrow.
After all, simply because Iceman was one of many first X-Males within the comics and Wolverine continues to be one of many property’s hottest characters total doesn’t assure we’ll see both of them immediately within the MCU. Frankly, we don’t actually know something about what this franchise’s plans for the mutants are, aside from Marvel Studios can lastly use them following Disney’s acquisition of Fox. Granted, Marvel did have entry to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, however as a substitute of being mutants, they gained their powers from the Thoughts Stone.
Given how the MCU’s Section Four and a few of Section 5 is already deliberate out, we’re nonetheless at the very least a number of years off from seeing the X-Males be a part of this world. Every time that point comes, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has promised the MCU’s tackle the property can be a lot completely different than what Fox delivered, and at the very least there’s no scarcity of mutants who might take middle stage on this continuity, from Iceman and Wolverine to loads of unconventional decisions.
As for Shia LaBeouf, 2019 was an enormous 12 months for him, with The Peanut Butter Falcon and Honey Boy each incomes essential acclaim.
