Danny DeVito is a man of many talents, and his fans are not about to let you forget it. A new petition on Change.org is calling for the veteran actor to take on the mantle of Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

A statement on the petition by its creator, Ring Arius, reads:

The only man able to take the throne after Hugh Jackman. We believe that if Wolverine is to make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that the only man able to pull it off is Danny Devito.

Ring Arius is clearly not alone because the petition stands at nearly 13,000 signatures at the time of this writing, with more people signing their names as we speak.

DeVito has been a staple of film and TV for many decades, perhaps most famously known for his roles in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Hercules. DeVito also has experience with superhero films, having made a memorable turn as The Penguin in 1992’s Batman Returns.

Reasons for signing listed on the petition include:

So take that as you will.

Clearly, DeVito is not the hero we expected, but could he be the hero we deserve?

UPDATE: the petition on Change.org is now at over 40,000+ signatures.
