Check out Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart in new Wolverine 3 set photos!
Following a first round of Wolverine 3 set photos last month, Just Jared has another look at the 20th Century Fox franchise sequel. You can view the photos, which feature Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, by clicking here!
In addition to the return of Jackman’s Wolverine and Stewart’s as Professor Charles Xavier, the Wolverine 3 cast includes 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. If the post credits scene from X-Men: Apocalypse is any indication, we may also see the classic X-Men villain Mr. Sinister playing a part in the March 3, 2017 release.
Wolverine 3, which has not yet confirmed an official title, will mark the ninth time that Hugh Jackman has played the character on the big screen. When the actor confirmed his involvement in the new film last year, he suggested that this will be his last time appearing as Logan.
James Mangold returns to the franchise, directing 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.
