Earlier in an interview, the Kate & Leopold actor suggested Shah Rukh Khan's name to replace him as Wolverine in future X-Men movies. The actor said: ""I think I'll be fine with it. I hope other people play it. May be Shah Rukh Khan could play it."
He added: "The comic book series is so good because you have so many people interpreting this role. I think there are six origin stories. I'll be really interested to see how I feel about it. I want it to be really great. But I don't want it to be that much better than me. Just a little bit is fine. But if everyone is like 'Oh thank god, now' I might find that little difficult."
