We still have some time before we get to see the final 'Wolverine' movie. Since it's heading into production, they've added another character to their roster. X-23.
There have been casting calls in New Orleans, seeking a "Caucasian, Hispanic and Asian looking females." Who varies from 4’-4’11’’ for stand-ins, as well as girls of the same ethnicity. SuperheroHype has reported it possibly being Laura Kinney (X-23). The mutant with superhuman strength, reflexes, agility, and a healing factor. The difference between her and Logan is, X-23 has only two adamantium claws on her hands. Along with an extra that comes out of each of her feet. X-23 appeared in comics in 2004. She is a clone created by the Weapon X program. In an attempt to replicate what they've gotten with Wolverine, the programs twenty third attempt created X-23. Indicating the previous twenty two were failures.
For now the casting has only been Jackman reprising as Wolverine, Patrick Stewart returning as Professor X and Narcos star Boyd Holbrook as the unannounced villain.
Wolverine 3 hits theaters on March 3, 2017.
