Potential Wolverine 3 villains revealed, but they’re not alone…
Despite having already begun filming, we still don’t know a lot about the upcoming Wolverine 3. Hugh Jackman will be back one last time as the man himself, but many details about the film, like the villains, remain a mystery, until now.
Nerdist reports that the villain gang The Reavers will appear in the film. In the source material, The Reavers are a militant group of cyborgs, many of whom have a personal vendetta against Wolverine himself.
These aren’t the only villains in the film, however. We’ve also heard that the primary antagonists of the film are none other than Wolverine’s favorite group, Weapon X. How they factor into the movie along with The Reavers remains to be seen, but it’s certainly possible that they’re working together in an effort to stop or capture Wolverine as well as the young clone of him, X-23, who will also be along for the film’s road trip.
How do you think The Reavers and Weapon X will factor into the third Wolverine movie? Sound off below!
The cast for the film continues to come together with Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Patrick Stewart as Professor Charles Xavier. They’re joined by Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq La Salle and Elise Neal. James Mangold directs from a script by David James Kelly.
Producer Simon Kinberg previously confirmed that Wolverine 3 will be rated R. Mangold’s previous film, The Wolverine, saw an alternate R-rated cut released on home media after its theatrical release.
