Hugh Jackman may be done as Wolverine, but there’s still hope for Dafne Keen to return as X-23.
Keen practically stole the show as Laura in Logan and left fans begging for more. According to Logan director James Mangold, fans just might get what they’re hoping for.
“Anything’s possible,” Mangold said during a live question and answer session during screenings fo Logan Noir. “I’ve certainly talked to them about it. I even talked to them about it before we made the movie. I thought she was just such a great character, but with what Dafne did, I think that certainly, that’s possible.”
Could her return come as soon as X-Men: Dark Phoenix? There a still a lot of questions surrounding Fox's next big X-Men movie, so, for now, anything is possible.
Keen was a great casting find for 20th Century Fox, as producer Hutch Parker recalls in a special feature showing Keen's audition for X-23.
"There are qualities you can't ask of someone to deliver," says Parker. " A level of strength, a sort of stage presence and a maturity that still doesn't really make sense to me. It felt like she could do this most difficult thing of, on the one hand, being the sort of emotional co-star with Hugh [Jackman] and with Patrick and on top of that then also manage the physicality, which was pretty demanding. She was really a remarkable discovery."
