Watch Henry Cavill as Wolverine in Stunning Clip. The X-Men are among Marvel’s most beloved characters, with Wolverine being one of the most popular.
While Hugh Jackman played the role of Wolverine for the longest time in the franchise’s history, he will soon return in Deadpool 3, though a new actor is expected to take over the role in the MCU eventually.
Henry Cavill, best known for his role as Superman, has been imagined as Wolverine through AI art. Before Cavill left the role of Superman, he was a fan-favorite choice to play Wolverine, which led to creating a deep fake that imagines him as the Marvel mutant hero. The video shows the challenges of replacing Jackman as Wolverine and delivering the same level of performance that he did.
Despite the unusual portrayal of Cavill’s Wolverine, this is not the first time the actor has been associated with the superhero genre. Since 2013, when he played Superman in Man of Steel, Cavill has been linked with various superhero roles.
Though fans may find seeing him as a different iconic superhero strange, the Deepfake makes a compelling case for Cavill’s ability to portray Wolverine convincingly.
