​More Than 10,000 People Sign Petition To Get Danny DeVito To Star As Wolverine

We live in a time where we're spoilt rotten when it comes to TV and film, with our insatiable hunger for on-screen entertainment only being fed more and more by the day.

But because of this, we've now become absolute monsters, and now we've started fighting back with online petitions about what we'd prefer.

Game of Thrones finale? Yeah, it was okay, but CAN YOU PLEASE JUST REWRITE THE WHOLE THING?

Sure, these rarely amount to anything, but they're worth a shot - especially if it's for an absolute brainwave, like this latest petition to get Marvel to cast Danny DeVito as the new Wolverine - complete with some pretty incredible artwork that was apparently created by artist Stuart Cooper:

Frankly, I am into it - and it seems many, many other people are as well, as the petition has already racked up more than 10,000 signatures of the 15,000 goal.

The petition's description argues that DeVito is 'the only man able to take the throne after Hugh Jackman'.

It continues: "We believe that if Wolverine is to make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the only man able to pull it off is Danny Devito."

Citing their reasons for signing, one person wrote: "Danny Devito is the best actor of all time, and can play any role. If he can play Arnold Schwarzenegger's twin brother, he can play Logan being the best at what he does."

God, that's a really good point actually.

Others had simpler reasons, ranging from 'Danny DeVito is a massive legend' through to 'It's fucking Danny DeVito'.

"I believe Danny Devito is a great actor," another signee said.

"Penguin Batman Returns and Frank It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, let's make it happen."

Someone else wrote: "It is my human right to see what I want to see and I want to see Wolverine played by an old, short, fat, balding man. My first preference is Elton John but DeVito is a close second."


Many people just started throwing out It's Always Sunny references like 'RUM HAM', 'we all need an egg in these trying times' and, er, 'if you're dealt a bunch of lemons, you gotta take those lemons and stuff 'em down somebody's throat until they see yellow'.

Preach, guys.

If you agree with the other 10,000-odd DeVito fans, you can sign the petition here.
