Hugh Jackman’s last time as the Wolverine is less than a year away, being scheduled for a February 2017 release date. As it’s currently in principal photography, the cast is growing rapidly – Patrick Stewart has recently been confirmed to reprise his role of Professor Charles Xavier.
According to a report by The Wrap, actress Elizabeth Rodriguez (Fear The Walking Dead, Miami Vice, Orange Is The New Black) is also in negotiations to join the film in what’s described as “a small but key role”.
The Wolverine 3 (not official title) is heavily rumored to adapt the “Old Man Logan” story line from the comics, which sees Logan in a dystopian future where the villains have won and are controlling the world. It is also confirmed to be shooting for a R rating.
