We don’t even know the title of the third Wolverine movie yet and casting news is trickling through. After yesterday’s news of Richard E. Grant joining the cast as a “mad scientist” type character, possibly Mr Sinister, Stephen Merchant has reportedly also signed on.
There’s no word as to who Merchant shall play, but we know he’s an English comedian and actor who created The Office alongside Ricky Gervais, so changes are he’ll be the comedic relief. Since this is the last outing from Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, the movie may need a bit of humour to distract from this saddening finale. One thing’s for certain – he won’t be taking over from Jackman as Logan!
The third Wolverine movie is set to hit UK cinemas on March 2nd, 2017 – find out more release dates for Upcoming Superhero Movies here.
