While Hugh Jackman’s cameo as Wolverine in X-Men Apocalypse, which was just released this past weekend, was brief, fans will be getting plenty more of him come next year when he reprises his role as the character for one last time in Wolverine 3.
In fact, filming on what will be the tenth installment in the X-Men cinematic universe is underway and currently taking place in New Orleans, Louisiana. Just this Tuesday, the folks over at Just Jared got their hands on and shared the first batch of photos from the film’s set, and in them, a fully-bearded and disheveled Logan can be seen stepping out of a car. Check out the images for yourself below…
Despite the fact that the film has been in the works for years, plot details still remain scarce. Having said that, it’s very likely that Wolverine 3 will at the very least reference the Old Man Logan storyline from the comics, if not be an exact film adaptation. Last year, writer of Old Man Logan, Mark Millar, confirmed that the movie would be based on the popular storyline, although Fox has yet to make an official announcement about that bit of news.
Wolverine 3 is being helmed by The Wolverine director James Mangold and will see Hugh Jackman joined in the cast by Patrick Stewart as Professor X, along with new additions Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Eriq La Salle, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Elise Neal.
Wolverine 3 is set for release on March 3rd, 2017.
