Matt Vaughn, director of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, revealed recently that he had aspirations of creating a young Wolverine movie that would take place between First Class and Days Of Future Past.
Slated to take place in the 70’s the plot line would focus on the early life and struggles of the Wolverine and the actor Vaughn had in mind to do so was Tom Hardy.
Sadly, Vaughn’s concept was shot down and he has since passed the baton to franchise stalwart Bryan Singer. The movie itself is still on the docket but the details of the storyline have yet to be fleshed out.
Fox executive Stacey Snider has mentioned that the idea of rebooting with a new actor is not off the table. Fans can interpret that however they would like but perhaps the opportunity for a Tom Hardy Wolverine is not completely out of the picture yet.
