“Wolverine 3” is rumored to be the last movie where fans would see Hugh Jackman play his famous role. The film is speculated to feature the popular comic storyline Old Man Logan due to photos of Jackman which surfaced on the web. Not much is officially known about the story but “X-Men: Apocalypse” might have left some hints for “Wolverine 3.”
Earlier this week, it was reported that the third installment would be entitled “Wolverine: Weapon X.” According to Comic Book Resources, evidence supporting the new title was shown in “X-Men: Apocalypse.” The site mentioned that Logan was also spotted wearing a head gear.
Likewise, the post-credit scene didn’t also focus on the new mutants but rather, viewers were taken back to Alkali Lake “where someone with a briefcase stole a vial of Wolverine’s DNA.” In the said briefcase, the name Essex was spotted. For comic book fans, Essex is known to be owned by Mr. Sinister also known as Dr. Nathaniel Essex.
Should British actor Richard E. Grant play as Dr. Essex and has Wolverine’s DNA, Comic Book Resources noted that he could likey create Logan’s clone X-23. The site also indicated that as the Weapon X has played an important part on Logan’s journey, there’s a possibility for Jackman’s character to meet his tragic fate.
Since Hugh Jackman is claiming this film will be his last as Wolverine, will fans also see his replacement before the film ends? Gizmodo noted that there is a new casting call speculated to be Logan’s clone.
“20th Century Fox are seeking a a 11 – 14 year old girl to play the role of Zoe in a brand new movie!! [ZOE] 11 to 14 year-old girl. Still a child, but a wounded badass, a pound puppy, raised in captivity in a time of battle, without support systems of normal childhood.
She has no family and until now, has never left the compound in which she was born. She has an authentic intensity – her expressions and body language speak volumes, without words. Once released in the outside world, everything is new – every experience and every image a first. This does not mean everything is wonderful or wondrous. Some things she sees (things we might regard as conventional) may scare her or anger her and things we may find interesting may bore her. She has not been instructed in many social conventions – she can eat like an animal. She studies and often mimics people’s behavior. She has a high IQ, but is also a temperamental, impulsive and feral creature that can raise genuine mayhem. She is a girl that has never been kissed.”
Well, we just have to wait for further details. For now, let’s take a look at some of “Wolverine 3” set photos below:
