Millar wrote The Ultimates which partly inspired Marvel’s original Avengers movie, Ultimate Fantastic Four, Wolverine: Old Man Logan, which was the inspiration for Fox’s Logan movie.

Egerton and Millar have worked together previously with the actor acting as Gary ‘Eggsy’ Unwin in Kingsman: The Secret Service and its sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle based on comics by Millar who is also executive producer on the movies.

Gossip about Egerton becoming the next Wolverine has been going on for awhile that even the actor has addressed them but the modest star isn’t so sure.

Egerton was reported as saying: “That one, I think, is just a rumour. As far as I’m aware it’s unfounded. I don’t know if I’m quite grisly enough.

“I mean, if the people at Marvel think I am, then great, let’s go. But I think there are better candidates. But I would love to be involved with that world somewhere.”

Egerton won’t be appearing on the third movie in the Kingsman franchise, The King’s Man.

It forms part of a trilogy alongside Kingsman: The Secret Service and Kingsman: The Golden Circle.

Vaughan said Egerton will be back in the movie, telling Digital Spy: “We’ve got to finish off the Eggsy and Harry relationship. The final chapter of their relationship needs to be told, which we’ve got ready to do, and I’m hoping to shoot that later this year or the beginning of next year.”
