Richard E. Grant Cast In Villainous ‘Wolverine 3’ Role

Earlier this month news broke that Boyd Hoolbrok (Narcos, Gone Girl) would be playing a villain in next year’s third solo movie of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. And even though his character’s name has not been revealed yet, he’s already been given a sidekick: Richard E. Grant (The Iron Lady) will be joining him in a villainous role that’s being described as a “mad scientist type”.

As the movie is widely assumed to adapt the Old Man Logan storyline from the comics, this opens up the possibility of Grant portraying Doctor Cornelius, one of the scientists that worked on the Weapon X programm, which gave Logan his adamantium skeleton, and who made a return in Old Man Logan.
