Not to worry, though: Conan got his hands on the “audition tapes” to fill the role. Featuring comedians ranging from Thomas Middleditch to Nick Offerman to Patton Oswalt either intensely or half-heartedly delivering ‘Wolverine’ lines to hilarious effect, the above video surely includes our next cigar-smoking superhero…right?
If you’d like to see Jackman-esque wigs — particularly noticeable on Hannibal Buress and Larry King — or Kristen Schaal covered in slime, this is sure to entertain.
Watch the clip above. “Conan” airs weeknights at 11pm on TBS.
