David Hayter wants to play Wolverine for Insomniac's upcoming superhero game. The writer and voice actor has already said on Twitter that he'd be interested in the role if the opportunity arose following fan's messages of support. Marvel's Wolverine was revealed at the PlayStation Showcase on September 9, 2021, much to our surprise. Though we might have expected the reveal of Marvel's Spider-Man 2 which did appear, Wolverine was as much a shock to us as it was for everyone else.
David Hayter voices the one and only Snake from the Metal Gear Solid series, so you may be familiar with his work already. Not only does he act but he writes too, and has a special relationship with X-Men in particular. Hayter is known for co-writing the films X-Men and X-2 and was a writer on the 2009 Watchmen film as well. Additionally in The Flash he was the voice of King Shark which is pretty rad. Safe to say he is well integrated into the world of superhero games and movies and probably really does want the role of Wolverine.
Here is the first teaser we got for Marvel's Wolverine...
On Twitter, as the PlayStation Showcase was unfolding and fans were thinking of who could become Logan, fans turned to Hayter. One Twitter user, Nicodemus82 says, "Who else thinks David Hayter should be the voice for Insomniac Games' Wolverine?". And David responds, "I admit... I was thinking that." Very interesting.

From the PlayStation blog on the reveal of Spider-Man 2 and Wolverine, Insomniac says that the game is still very early in development. That might mean they haven't yet worked out who gets to play the mutant which might lead to the team approaching Hayter after all. That's by no means confirmation but I'm sure they've seen the tweet and have perhaps have had to think about it. We can't wait to hear more about the project in the coming years.
