Scott Eastwood as Wolverine surprised Marvel fans. Wolverine is a popular Marvel character. He’s the most popular Marvel character not in the MCU.
Hopefully, that will change shortly. After a certain MCU series revealed an X-Men Easter Egg, it could be sooner.
After Disney’s acquisition of Fox, Marvel now owns the X-Men characters, including Wolverine. As for the claw-wielding hero, rumors are already circulating about when he will arrive in Marvel Studios’ shared universe.
Hugh Jackman did an amazing job in Fox’s X-Men franchise. A video leaked online months ago showing what Scott Eastwood could look like in the role (using DeepFake technology), and it’s pretty convincing.
YouTube user StryderHD has wowed fans of popular series with his stunning videos reimagining characters with different actors. Millie Bobby Brown as Princess Leia and Emilia Clarke as Mera in Aquaman are two examples.

Marvel Studios has not yet cast Scott Eastwood as Wolverine in the MCU. The son of Clint Eastwood has topped several fan-casting lists, with fans recognizing his similarities to Jackman and Logan, which made the DeepFake video so seamless.
Though Jackman has hinted at a return to the MCU, Scott Eastwood would be a terrific pick to continue on his legacy as the next Logan if he retires.
