It’s happening–filming, that is. New set photos from the set of the third and final Wolverine movie have emerged featuring Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart, thanks to Just Jared. Combined with set photos released earlier this month, it seems all but confirmed that Wolverine 3 will be all about Old Man Logan.
However Logan isn’t the only one sporting facial hair in this one it seems. Professor X has also apparently ditched the razor, reminiscent of the look the character (as played by James McAvoy) sported in X-Men: Days of Future Past except for the long, scraggly locks of course. We’re still not sure how Professor X figures into the plot of Wolverine’s third and final solo outing, but it’s definitely odd to see Stewart without his compadre, Sir Ian McKellen.
Also spotted on set with one photo in particular focusing on her, is a young new actress whose name nor role have yet been identified. Other cast members (not shown) include Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook and Stephen Merchant who is reportedly playing the (unnamed) villain.
Information on the Wolverine sequel has been pretty scarce. We do know James Mangold is directing. This will be the third film Mangold has worked with Jackman on after Kate & Leopold and The Wolverine. We also know that it will be the first Marvel film, with the exception of Deadpool, to receive an R-rating. Last, judging by what we saw in X-Men: Apocalypse it seems in some way at least, Logan will be back at Square One in terms of memories and self-control. We’re guessing that scene at Alkali Lake is the direct set up for where we’ll find him in this next film, though much further down the line of course.
Wolverine 3 is set to hit US theaters March 3, 2017 and UK theaters a day earlier on March 2, 2017.
