Hugh Jackman is set to pop his claws in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse in a small role but will be finished when filming is complete fir Wolverine III. For the longest time, fans have anticipated an “Old Man Logan” treatment that would be possible as long of the spirit of the story stays somewhat intact. Today, courtsey of the folks over at Nerdist.com, we have lots of information regarding the badguys who will be plauging Logan.
Boyd Holbrook will be playing the films main villain who will be an original character thats, “relentless, calculating… intense head of security for a global enterprise”. Additionally, the Reavers, a group of cyborg warriors created to exterminate mutants by Donald Pierce, will also be a thorn in Logans side. Also, Richard E. Grant has been cast to play a mad scientist type character which could be Donalb Blake or some head of Weapon X. This could mean a number of things that I feel like would really work for this film. The global enterprise could be headed by Mister Sinister or the Hellfire Club while the Reavers could either be very close to their comic counterparts or could easily be played by former adversaries of Logan like Liev Shreiber’s Sabertooth who’s been rumered to return.
Regardless, this news will definitely give you, the Comic Nation, something to think about until we learn more. So what do YOU think about this bit of news? Let us know and keep checking back for more Wolverine III news and our Countdown to Apocalypse.
