We didn’t hear anything about Wolverine 3 or Logan for a while and now information is coming out in droves.
Director James Mangold has confirmed that the mutant character will indeed be in the third Wolverine film. Mangold took to Twitter to share the first photo of the mutant, played by Stephen Merchant (The Office). It is a closeup of his face, bald and pale, against a black background.
Caliban first made an appearance in 1981 in Uncanny X-Men #148. His primary mutant ability is tracking and sensing other mutants. The character had a small role in this year’s X-Men: Apocalypse in which he was an underground broker who offered transportation for mutants.
Merchant also shared a photo of himself from the film on Instagram, with the caption “How I spent my summer”:
We know that the movie is set in the future and that mutants have been on the decline, so Caliban may prove to be a very important presence in the movie.
