It's an interesting confirmation and one that has people hyped up. As the outlet notes, Egerton appears to be bulking up in the past few months and it is believed he might be preparing for a specific role. However, the casting has not yet been confirmed so it's best to take this with a grain of salt.

Earlier this year, there were speculations that he would play the mutant in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Before that, he was repeatedly asked if there was any chance he would take over the role for Hugh Jackman.
