A fan petition has launched to persuade Marvel Studios to cast actor Danny DeVito as the next Wolverine.
“The only man able to take the throne after Hugh Jackman. We believe that if Wolverine is to make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that the only man able to pull it off is Danny Devito,” reads the full text of the petition, started by a Change.org user going by Ring Arius.
74-year old DeVito has often been joked about as a potential actor to play Wolverine, due in large part to his 4’10” stature, somewhat comparable to Wolverine’s sometimes-cited comic book height of 5’3″.
Jackman hung up his adamantium claws after Logan (2017). The 50-year-old actor called time on playing the character, which he portrayed in the X-Men film series from 2000-2017, after believing it wasn’t right to drag it out.
As of our publication, 20,825 Change.org users have signed the petition. See petition here
