Caliban in Logan

When it comes to the X-Men franchise, this year’s Logan and last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse are completely on the opposite ends of the spectrum. Logan is a much more intimate, grounded character piece while X-Men: Apocalypse other is a loud, bright, hollow tentpole. However, they do have one thing in common: the mutant known as Caliban.

In X-Men: Apocalypse, Caliban is played by Tómas Lemarquis, and he’s seen working as a black market dealer who helps Mystique find Nightcrawler. The film is set in 1983, but 46 years later Caliban is played by Stephen Merchant and he’s a timid recluse living with Logan as one of the last remaining mutants and helping him take care of Professor X.
