It’s starting to look like the goal of the currently filming Wolverine 3 is to send Hugh Jackman‘s adamantium-clawed superhero out with a bloody bang by throwing as many villains at him as possible. We already know that Narcos star Boyd Holbrook will play the lead villain, an original character reportedly created specifically for this film and that Richard E. Grant will play a “mad scientist” of some kind. Even the post-credits scene in X-Men: Apocalypse appears to be setting up a future villain whose identity will lurk behind this link for those who wish to know.
Now, a new report claims to know about another group of villains that will menace Wolverine in his cinematic swan song and fans will be pleased to note that they have been ripped straight from the comics. Some of you may find this to be a minor spoiler, so feel free to stop reading now if you don’t want to know about the Wolverine 3 villains.

Wolverine 3 has been operating under a shroud of secrecy. We know it’ll bring back Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Professor X, and that it’ll loosely be based on Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s Old Man Logan storyline. But even as the cast continues to grow — with Fear the Walking Dead and Orange Is the New Black star Elizabeth Rodriguez as its latest exciting addition — we haven’t heard a whole lot about which characters these actors will be playing.
We may, however, finally have some clue as to whom Wolverine will be going up against, thanks to X-Men: Apocalypse. Although the film won’t open in the U.S. for another week, word from overseas is that the end-credits scenes may hold some key information about the villain of Wolverine 3. Obviously, SPOILERS for X-Men: Apocalypse follow. Read More »

A few months ago, it was rumored that The Wolverine 3 would be shooting for an R rating. But not because of the success of Deadpool. No sir. It definitely has nothing to do with that film skyrocketing to the top of the superhero heap, becoming the highest-grossing X-Men movie and trampling the likes of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice at the domestic box office. Yep, this was certainly a decision being made entirely independent of that. Of course. Uh huh.
Anyway, producer Simon Kinberg recently sat down for a new interview and confirmed that the next (and possibly final) adventure of Hugh Jackman‘s adamantium-clawed superhero will be R-rated. He also announced the movie has quietly begun filming and that yes, everyone was correct when they assumed that this movie would be based on the “Old Man Logan” storyline.

Now, we can add another name to that list. Eriq La Salle has joined has joined the cast of the third solo Wolverine film and, you guessed it, his role is being kept under wraps.
