With Disney set to acquire a large portion of 21st Century Fox, including the rights to franchises like X-Men and Avatar, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe could see some new characters in their favorite superhero flicks.

Though it’s still unclear how Marvel might incorporate the X-Men into its existing universe, speculation among fans has been running wild—especially when it comes to Wolverine.

Hugh Jackman seems to have officially moved on from the scruffy, mutant superhero—a role with which he’s pretty much become synonymous, considering he’s played it for the last 17 years. And while there are plenty of actors who could take on the part and do it justice, Jackman himself has name-dropped one actor who would make a near-perfect fit.
