One of Logan’s most popular characters was Dafne Keen’s X-23, stealing many scenes from the two powerhouse actors behind Wolverine and Charles Xavier.
There has been much talk about the character’s potential to pop up in future X-Men franchise movies, with Logan’s director James Mangold even teasing her return. But according to producer Hutch Parker, there are no definite plans for X-23’s future appearances, and that her appearance in an X-Men movie isn’t guaranteed.
“I don’t know definitively, but in terms of the stuff we’ve been talking about, it’s not sort of slipping her into the background of another movie. It’s looking at that character, which is a great character and has a pretty interesting run within the comics, to find a story that we think she could carry or certainly be kind of majorly significant within,” Parker said to IGN.
“That’s the only kind of thing that Jim as a storyteller, a filmmaker…that’s the way his sort of process works. And the way his mind works in terms of what he would aspire to. Which isn’t to say that the studio couldn’t have a conversation about something else, but the one that we’ve been kind of discussing loosely and kicking around is more likely to be its own film.”
There are certainly plenty of options for Keen and X-23 whatever they end up deciding, such as the X-Force movie, and of course her own solo picture. Let us know in the comments if and how you’d like to see the character return…
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Logan reunites Hugh Jackman with The Wolverine director James Mangold and also stars Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Elise Neal.
