If you can go from playing Elton John to Wolverine, I’d call that RANGE…  and that’s what Taron Egerton is trying to do.

After playing Elton in “Rocketman”, Taron wants to be the Wolverine of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  He even had a meeting with the bosses at Marvel.  He says, quote, “Hopefully if it does come around, they’ll give me a shot.”

However as much as Taron wants it, he also knows Hugh Jackman will be a tough act to follow.

Quote, “I’d be excited but I’d be apprehensive as well, because Hugh is so associated with the role that I’d wonder if it’d be very difficult for someone else to do it.”
