Chris Evans' return as Wolverine is on the minds of the Russo Brother

Marvel fans have been eagerly awaiting the addition of characters from 20th Century Fox's "X-Men" franchise to Disney's Marvel Cinematic Universe since Disney merged with 20th Century Fox in 2019.

The recasting of certain characters from the long-running "X-Men" series will undeniably be challenging.

Nonetheless, two of Marvel's top directors came up with a plan to begin the process.

Anthony and Joe Russo were asked if they would like to see Chris Evans play another superhero on the ComicBook.com Phase Zero podcast.

Hugh Jackman recently stepped down as Wolverine, the character he played for nine films.

Having directed Evans in four Marvel films, including "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the brothers explained why they think Evans should become the "X-Men" icon.

"Evans has superior range and physicality, and he has excellent body control," Joe Russo said.
