Petition organizer Ring Arius cites some reasons why DeVito would make the ideal
. "Danny DeVito's height is a lot closer to the comic books portrayal of Wolverine, with Danny being 4'10" and Wolverine 5'3" tall," Arius wrote.
"We all saw Danny's portrayal of the Trashman," Arius added. "So, we know he is fully capable of fighting, and that he is not afraid when things get dirty."
DeVito is also no stranger to playing well-known comic book characters on film. He played the Penguin in 1992's Batman Returns.
While the chances of DeVito being cast as the next Wolverine are probably low, it's still fun to speculate about the comedic actor waving around metal claws in a fight.
and Marvel didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
