AI-generated art using the DALL e mini program reimagines Marvel’s Wolverine with Captain America actor Chris Evans in place of Hugh Jackman.
Thought Wolverine is forever linked to Hugh Jackman, this AI-generated art imagines what it would be like to see Chris Evans tackle the hero. Evans has achieved a diverse resume in his many years performing, but he has long been linked with Marvel. He is perhaps best known as the MCU’s Captain America actorfirst appearing in the role in 2011 and appearing in 11 Marvel Studios movies (including post-credit scenes), though he also played Johnny Storm in the Fantastic Four franchise before the MCU was established. Evans’ time as Captain America finally came to an end with 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, when he passed on his emblematic shield to Sam Wilson aka Falcon (Anthony Mackie).
Similarly, Jackman spent more than a decade playing a Marvel character. The actor debuted as Wolverine in X-Men (2000) and continued to make appearances in several franchise entries, including some dedicated to his character. His final Wolverine performance in 2017’s Logan is what helped Jackman achieve the world record for “longest career as a live-action Marvel superhero,” which he held with Sir Patrick Stewart, whose appearance in Doctor Strange 2 should have now made him the sole recordholder. Now that the X-Men are nearing their introduction in the MCU, however, people are starting to wonder who might succeed Jackman in the role.
Now, AI-generated images using the DALL E mini program have Evans filling in as Wolverine. Nowadays, the mutant is more commonly associated with the white tank top of Jackman’s cartoonal, but this version imagines Evans in the comics’ iconic yellow suit. DALL·E images always err on the side of creepy, with poorly constructed faces, but the metal claws make these pictures even freakier. Check out the images below:
Even though Evans has already appeared as two separate Marvel characters, Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo saying that they want the see Evans play the MCU’s Wolverine has brought fans’ attention to the idea. At first glance, the characters seem vastly different, with Captain America’s very controlled nature and Wolverine’s intense energy. However, there are some similarities between them, such as their desire to protect others.
While it would certainly be interesting to see what Evans would make of the X-Men character, seeing him return to the franchise as anything but Steve Rogers would likely be a lot for audiences to handle. A number of other actors have been fan cast in the role so far, including The Boys star Karl Urban, and Marvel reportedly met with Taron Egerton about playing Wolverine, but nothing has been finalized as of yet. MCU fans will be hoping that this week’s San Diego Comic-Con will bring big X-Men news, including a potential announcement of Jackman’s successor.
