First Look at Hugh Jackman on the Wolverine 3 Set

20th Century Fox has officially started filming Wolverine 3 in New Orleans and Just Jared has posted the first photos from the set. You can view the photos by clicking here! Let us know your thoughts about the photos in the comments below.

The cast for the film includes Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Professor Charles Xavier. They’re joined by Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez.

We’ve heard that the primary antagonists of the film are none other than Wolverine’s favorite group, Weapon X. How they factor into the movie along with The Reavers remains to be seen, but it’s certainly possible that they’re working together in an effort to stop or capture Wolverine as well as the young clone of him, X-23, who will also be along for the film’s road trip.

James Mangold directs from a script by David James Kelly. Producer Simon Kinberg previously confirmed that Wolverine 3 will be rated R. Mangold’s previous film, The Wolverine, saw an alternate R-rated cut released on home media after its theatrical release.
