It’s official, Laura Kinney AKA X-23 is in Logan

October 23rd, 2016 by Marc Comments


If you know comics you probably already knew that the new trailer(s) for Wolverine 3 – or Logan as it’s officially titled – introduced the new Wolverine albeit sort of under the radar.

But now it’s pretty much official – Logan will feature X-23, Laura Kinney (that’s her locking blades with Logan in the image above).

20th Century Fox confirmed on Instagram (below) that actress Dafne Keen is Laura.

Kinney is a clone of Logan and possesses all of his abilities, although she has two claws on each hand and on on her feet.

The big question is, in the comics she’s part of the X-Men (and X-Force) but given the apparent timeline of Logan, we’re wondering if we’ll ever see her appear in the movies with the other X-Men.

But, let’s be honest, it’s X-Men so anything could happen.

So, ladies and gentlemen, meet… Wolverine.

Starring Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart, Logan is coming to theaters on March 3, 2017. The new film will mark the ninth time that Hugh Jackman has played the character on the big screen. Mangold is directing from a script by David James Kelly.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
