star has responded to fans casting him as the next , and it seems he’s not totally opposed to the idea.

He already handles one superhero (or rather, supervillain) role pretty well, starring as Homelander in Prime Video’s drama, so why not add another to his list?

Marvel fans are now calling for the actor to star as Wolverine, which has previously seen the likes of Hugh Jackman and Steve Blum take on the role.

Others have already debated whether or are up for playing the iconic character, now that

‘With his performance in #Banshee and specially in season 3 of the #theboys he clearly has the (mutton) chops… I’ll show myself out.’

Starr doesn’t seem totally closed off to the idea, as he commented: ‘Ooofff,- my bones ache just thinking of the stunk work!’

This isn’t the first time Starr has thought about playing Logan, as he previously admitted that out of all of the X-Men, he would want to play Wolverine the most.

He did however, hold one condition for the role, saying he would be adding spandex into his costume requirements, which Jackman didn’t.

He told : ‘Big shoes to fill, man. Jackman’s pretty much put his mark on that, hasn’t he?

‘So, I never say never, man – but at the moment, I’m just enjoying what we’re doing here.

‘I mean, to be honest, Wolverine doesn’t wear spandex, which is definitely a negative for me. I do like the feel of tight pants, you know, if they can tighten the jeans up, maybe.’

He continued: ‘I could be tempted – but I’m just happy to be doing what I’m doing, brother, and whatever comes, comes.’

The Boys season 3 episodes are available to stream weekly on Amazon Prime Video.
