Taron Egerton dismisses Wolverine rumours

Taron Egerton says he is “baffled” by rumours suggesting he will play Wolverine and claims that he would be “more suited” to other characters.

The “Rocketman” star has been linked to playing the Marvel mutant, but he is “baffled” by the rumours and believes he would be “more suited” to other characters.

Taron told Yahoo Movies: “It’s unfounded. The only morsel of truth to it is that I’m a huge fan of the films, like 99.9 percent of the rest of the world. That’s kind of it, really. I don’t quite know where it comes from. I’m flattered but baffled by it.

Despite this, the 29-year-old admits that Wolverine would be a great character to play.
