Thought to be using the storyline of Old Man Logan, this final outing for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is apparently going to be R-rated, which might actually give us a good solo Wolverine film for a change. Filming is well under way and a few photos have cropped up of Patrick Stewart’s Professor X being wheeled along by Logan, who is sporting a gross beard. I’m normally quite fond of beards but not this one.
The photos show the grossly bearded Jackman, as well as a distraught looking Professor X, most likely after some sort of cataclysmic event, plus a girl who could be playing a young X23, who has been rumoured especially after she and Mister Sinister were being teased in the post credit sequence of X-Men: Apocalypse.
Directed by James Mangold, whose past work includes The Wolverine, 3:10 to Yuma and Knight and Day and written by David James Kelly and Michael Green, both of whom have experience within the comic book movie genre, the film is set for release in March 2017.
