New ‘Logan’ Photo Reveals One of the Villains in the Wolverine Sequel
We already know that one of the villains in the upcoming Wolverine sequel is Mister Sinister, aka Nathaniel Essex, whose arrival was teased in the X-Men: Apocalypse post-credits scene. But what about the film’s other villain, played by Narcos star Boyd Holbrook? Thanks to another new image from Logan, we have our first look at Holbrook’s character — and a name to go along with it.
Logan’s official Instagram account — cutely named “wponx” — has been debuting some new stills from the upcoming sequel over the past few days, including one that appeared to be the result of an unfortunate encounter with Hugh Jackman’s titular mutant hero. The latest photo update is a little more substantial, revealing our first look at Boyd Holbrook’s character, Pierce:
For those unfamiliar with the comics, that’d be Donald Pierce, a former member of the Hellfire Club who went on to lead the Reavers — lethal militaristic cyborg villains engineered by Pierce. A previous rumor suggested that the Reavers would appear in the film, and with the identity of Holbrook’s character confirmed, that seems pretty likely. Holbrook’s villain was first described as the “relentless, calculating and intense head of security for a global enterprise,” which indicates that he’s in cahoots with Mister Sinister (played by Richard E. Grant) and Essex Corp.
Over the past week, we’ve gotten a few more details about Logan, including our first look at a much, much older Professor X (Patrick Stewart). And with all this activity on the Instagram account, it shouldn’t be long now before the first trailer arrives.
Logan hits theaters on March 3, 2017.
