A staggering amount of people have signed an online petition calling for Danny DeVito to take on the iconic role of Wolverine.

The petition states that DeVito is the “only man able to take the throne after Hugh Jackman" and references Jackman’s 2017 statement to MTV that after 17 years he would no longer be reprising his role as Wolverine.

Jackman hinted in 2018 that his departure doesn’t necessarily mean the character won’t return and fans believe DeVito may stand a chance for the role, as he has past experience playing the villainous character of Penguin in 'Batman Returns.'

DeVito has yet to respond to the petition, and Marvel's future plans for the 'X-Men' series have not been announced.
