Considering how outstanding Jon Bernthal was as Frank Castle in Netflix’s Punisher series, it’s almost hard to imagine the actor playing any other Marvel character… until now.

A few weeks back digital artist spdrmnkyxxiii took to Instagram to share a photo of Bernthal as Wolverine and the result is pretty darn impressive. We all know Hugh Jackman has no desire to return to the role and honestly, we don’t blame him, but Marvel is planning to reboot the X-Men film franchise, which means at some point or another a new Wolverine will eventually need to be cast and the photo below makes a pretty convincing argument for Bernthal.

If Marvel decides not to bring back The Punisher and Bernthal’s days of playing Castle are over, do you think he’d make a good replacement for Hugh Jackman? If not, what actor would you like to see fill Jackman’s shoes and become the MCU’s new Wolverine? Let us know in the comments below.
