A Hudson Valley man has made a humorous video pitch to Marvel as to why he should be the next actor to play Wolverine. Joshua James Mitchell of Saugerties lays out five reasons why he should play the legendary character:

  1. Claws
  2. Height
  3. Gym
  4. Cigars
  5. Rage

It was announced back in June that Scott Eastwood would take over as Wolverine in the Marvel Comic Universe (MCU) but now there are rumors that Hugh Jackman could be coming back.

Logan was the final Marvel movie Jackman had committed to but producers would like to see him return and have reportedly left the door open. There have even been rumors of him returning as a different character but we're not sure that would work at all.

In any event, we're with Joshua on this one. So he's only got one claw, and his gym membership is on the line... we just think it works.
