By now, you know that Hugh Jackman is leaving his post as Wolverine, but that doesn't mean the character is going anywhere soon.
In an interview with MTV, the Australian actor revealed who he thinks might be able to step into the mutant's sometimes-hairy skin, but not before reminding us all that he's still got one more film in the franchise to go.
“I haven’t really given it a lot of thought. I’ve been asked that question a lot, and I’m always like, ‘I don’t wanna make it too easy on the studio to replace me, you know! I’ve still got one more to do!'" he said.
But after thinking about a little more, Jackman suggested, "He's younger than me for sure -- I think Tom Hardy would be a great Wolverine."
We can definitely see that!
Hardy, who starred as the title character in this year's "Mad Max: Fury Road," is also strongly suggested to be in the running to replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond. He may have a busy few years ahead of him if any of these early rumors become truths.
But as Jackman said, he's still got one more "Wolverine" film that we can look forward to.
