Ever since Hugh Jackman hung up his claws, Marvel fans have been wondering whether the comics giant will revive Wolverine for a new film. Jackman's character died at the end of 2017 movie Logan, with the ending suggesting we could be seeing more films with his protegé X-23.
However, if a movie studio ever wanted to have another go at a Wolverine origin story then they could always go with Liam Hemsworth.
While the Aussie actor might seem like a strange choice for the metal-clawed mutant, a recent post on social media fooled loads of his fans.
The 30-year-old uploaded a series of pictures of himself working out with swimmer and author Ross Edgley. While it looked like your everyday workout picture, many had to do a double take to make sure it was definitely Liam in the picture.
Donning a white singlet and flexing his guns, with his hair spiked out in all directions, he certainly appeared similar to Jackman's Wolverine.
If you don't see it, loads of his followers did, with one person writing: "Why I am seeing a Wolverine here?"
Another added: "Looks like Wolverine with the hair and the shirt."
A third said: "I thought it was Wolverine."
Of course, there hasn't been any announcement about whether a new Wolverine movie will be made in the future. But if that decision is made, Liam might have to battle it out with one of his brothers for the role.
Luke Hemsworth, the eldest of the three, says he would love to portray a superhero and has his eyes on one in particular.
Speaking to Screenrant, the Westworld star said: "I grew up with them. I learned to draw through comic books, copying comic books since I was about 10 years old.
"Spawn was a big one for [me]; I really loved Todd McFarlane's Spawn. And then Batman - I would have fought Rob Pattinson for those gauntlets. And Wolverine!
"I'm like, 'Come on, just pass them on, mate. Let's give it to another Aussie.' I'll have to grow some chest hair, but I'm ready for Wolverine."
For many fans, Jackman has been so synonymous with the role it's hard to imagine anyone else playing the character, but it looks as though they'll have to as Jackman has ruled himself out.
Speaking to the Daily Beast, he said: "I knew it was the right time for me to leave the party - not just for me, but for the character.
"Somebody else will pick it up and run with it. It's too good of a character not to. It's kind of like, you're on your way home and your friend rings you and goes, 'Oh, dude, a new DJ just came on and the music is awesome, are you going to come back?' And you say, 'Sounds good but... no.' They're fine with someone else."
Someone get the Hemsworth brothers to battle it out for the role.
