Poll: Fan casting choice for MCU Wolverine: Kevin Hart, Ken Jeong, or Daniel Radcliffe? (33 votes)

Kevin Hart makes a better Wolverine between these 3 choices 24%
Ken Jeong makes a better Wolverine between these 3 choices 15%
Daniel Radcliffe makes a better Wolverine between these 3 choices 61%

Well in the future, the Marvel Cinematic Universe might include its own version of Wolverine.

Comic book fans had been insistent on accuracy to the source material in characterization and character design, and as excellent a performance that Hugh Jackman has given, he does not really resemble the comic book version in terms of character design. Most egregiously, he is too tall for the role.

So I was doing a google search for short actors, and these 3 showed up which I thought might be suitable for the role of MCU Wolverine in the near future, given their height and appearance that resembles a man at their prime age. So I would like to ask, if these are the 3 choices, which you think is a better choice to play the role of Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

Kevin Hart

Ken Jeong

Daniel Radcliffe

Explain your answer, discuss.

Dude Hugh Jackman os far more accurate to the source material than any of these choices. Size is hadly an issue in cinematrogaphy. No one would know from most films how short tom cruise is

What is this bs with Hart ? He could never do Wolverine, the dude couldn't act to save his life, let alone portray a layered character like Logan.

Also, lol at Ken Jeong, while his acting is better, he does not resemble Logan at all, no chance.

I refuse to believe anybody on a fundamental level thinks Kevin Hart or Ken Jeong would be a good choice for Wolverine in the MCU. Trolling, plain and simple.

@georgewbush: The other two aren’t hacks, they are just comdey actors asked by directors specifically to give silly performances...

Ken Jeong will commit suicide if he saw this thread. Even he would feel ashamed that someone though he would be a good Wolverine.

Tom Hardy as Wolverine. He's even the right height.

@germanx: This type of thread had already been posted multiple times before just to make things look like anyone can replace Jackman , if that's so easy then my friend u are being optimistic therefore this thread is totally a joke for me because I think that right now MCU will not bring back Logan after Hugh's Legacy which is unmatched in comparison to any potential good actor imo ...

@socajunkie: not a joke thread. If you refuse to believe it, that's your prerogative.

You say whatever you like, since it's a joke you wouldn't admit it's joke.

I'd believe in Hillary Clinton having a one night stand with Trump before I believed that a human being with a functioning brain thinks Kevin Hart and Ken Jeong are good choices for Wolverine.

It's utterly random and as someone else said, somebody else posted this topic as a joke so that doesn't help.

@legacy6364: He's already playing Venom.

Josh Brolin played Cable and Thanos. Chris Evans played Human Torch and Captain America.

What's your point?

While Wolverine is kinda short and does actually crack jokes, Kevin Hart would be a very, very odd choice.

Lol, I wasn't trying to come at you aggressively. I honestly wanted to know your point. I don't know if he really wants to play Wolverine, he's just my fan choice.

After seeing him play as Bane and Mad Max I feel he has the most chops for the opportunity.

Radcliffe is the only one that I could take seriously in the role, provided he attains the right physique.

That's a decent choice, unlike those in the OP.

If this thread really isnt a joke it will be with the ones who make a Wolverine movie staring any of these three the but of it. Over the last 3 days I talled to almost 60 comic fand I know and of those only 5 would even consider watching a movie with any of the three choices put up here. So of they do make a Wolverine movie with one of them I'd suggest not wasting time and money bringing down to Aus.

Why are people so against a man of colour playing a mutant whose skin colour doesn’t define him? The only thing Kevin needs to prove is that he can act serious.
