Narcos star Boyd Holbrook cast as jead villain in Wolverine 3

Deadline reports that Narcos star Boyd Holbrook has joined Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart in the upcoming Wolverine 3! Holbrook will play the lead villain of the film, a character that is described as “a relentless, calculating and intense head of security for a global enterprise who is set against Wolverine.” The outlet notes that a May start date is being planned for the film. Production will be set up in both New Orleans and New Mexico.

Rumors continue to swirl that the film is based on the famous Old Man Logan story line, though this remains unconfirmed. It’s also been previously rumored that the final film will be an R-rated take on Weapon X as well. The Wolverine saw an alternate R-rated cut released on home media after its theatrical release, but following the success of Deadpool with the rating (currently the highest-grossing X-Men and R-rated movie of all-time), we could be seeing a lot more blood when Wolverine next pops his claws.

Set to star Hugh Jackman as the title character for the final time, the film pairs Wolverine with Patrick Stewart’s Charles Xavier. Wolverine 3 will be directed by James Mangold from a script by David James Kelly. It is currently scheduled to arrive in theaters on March 3, 2017.
