Jason Momoa has now thrown his hat into the Wolverine ring.
With the release of Dark Phoenix, the original X-Men franchise unofficially comes to an end after seven franchise films and a number of spinoffs. After Disney's deal to buy 20th Century Fox, it's expected that the X-Men will (eventually) be integrated into the MCU with a new cast and a new approach (with the exception of Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool, who has already announced his excitement for joining the Disney family, and is expected to keep doing his own thing on the side).
Hugh Jackman played Wolverine for 17 years, appearing as the character in nine different films, including three solo spinoffs, the final one being 2017's excellent Logan. Jackman's path opens up a few obvious choices for the next choice to play the most iconic of the X-Men: one option would be young Dafne Keen, the actress who played his successor at the conclusion of Logan, and would allow the franchise an exciting new direction to go, with a youthful female Wolverine. Another option would be to look for exactly what Jackman was when he began as Wolverine: a total unknown.
But for the sake of fun, there are a few known quantities out there that would make for great Jackman replacements, and who'd have ways of making the character their own. So without further ado, let's take a look at who could be the next Wolverine.

There's even a question of corruption in the Newark Watershed and Development Corporation, which normally (for a Republican candidate anyway) call for some investigating. One has to wonder why no one seems to be asking questions now which will certainly come up later if Mr Booker does become the Democrat candidate for President...
