If you were wondering why Stephen Merchant was sporting a bald head in this weekend’s charity edition of The Crystal Maze, here’s your answer as director James Mangold has released the first image of the British actor and comedian from the upcoming Wolverine sequel Logan.
Recent rumours have suggested that Merchant is portraying the character of Caliban (who was recently played by Tomas Lemarquis for his appearance in X-Men: Apocalypse), and the above image certainly seems to support that.
UPDATE: Here’s another image of Merchant in costume…
Logan 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. It is set for release on March 3rd, 2017.
