The Wolverine 3 reunites director James Mangold with Hugh Jackman for Jackman’s final outing as the popular Canadian mutant.
While there have been official details on the film’s plot, rumor suggest it will be based on Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s “Old Man Logan” storyline from 2008 and 2009. That story took place in a dystopian future where the Marvel Universe supervillains managed to band together and take out all of the superheroes. Logan survived but was left a changed man, swearing to never pop his claws again, but circumstances force him on a road trip across the country, alongside the now blind Avenger Hawkeye.
Hawkeye can’t appear in The Wolverine 3, for rights reasons, and some have speculated that he will be replaced with Professor X, played by Patrick Stewart. This has not been confirmed.
