Fans have long been assuming that Wolverine 3, Hugh Jackman’s last performance as the titular character, would adapt the story line of Old Man Logan from the comics, where Logan has been tricked into killing all the X-Men and the villains are in control the world in a dystopian future.
And while this hasn’t been confirmed, there’s more and more evidence piling up; such as producer Simon Kinberg confirming that the 2017 film will in fact be set in the future:
“The Wolverine movie takes place in the future”, Kinberg told cinemablend.
The film’s cast recently grew by adding Boyd Holbrook as the main villain, and Patrick Stewart’s Professor X is also confirmed to be featured in it.
Wolverine 3 is set to release March 3, 2017.
