More cryptic Logan photos released
UPDATE: Another new photo has debuted from the account, featuring star Boyd Holbrook and simply captioned “Pierce.” This almost certainly means Holbrook is playing “Donald Pierce” in the film, a mutant who was a former member of the Hellfire Club and later a leader of The Reavers, a group of cyborg mutants previously rumored to appear in the film. Check it out below, the original story follows.
Since the reveal that the third Wolverine movie would simply be titled Logan, 20th Century Fox has been teasing the film though its official Instagram account and two more cryptic photos have been released, teasing the environment of the movie. Check them out in the gallery below!
Directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart, Logan is coming to theaters on March 3, 2017. The new film will mark the ninth time that Hugh Jackman has played the character on the big screen. Mangold is directing from a script by David James Kelly.
Mister Sinister and his “Essex Corp” are confirmed to be the villain(s) of the film, with a number of choices for who could be playing him, including Boyd Holbrook (possible), Richard E. Grant (likely), or even Stephen Merchant (probably not). We know that the primary villains for the film will include both The Reavers, as well as Wolverine’s favorite group, Weapon X. It stands to reason that Sinister’s role in the film will be tied to the creation of X-23, the young female clone of Wolverine also along for the film’s road trip, which makes the post-credit scene for X-Men: Apocalypse finally make some sense.
The cast also includes Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez.
