Patrick Stewart confirms a significant role and ‘old man’ Logan in Wolverine 3

August 15th, 2015 by Marc Comments


We’ve been pretty confident that Wolverine III would be the Old Man Logan story and would feature Patrick Stewart as Professor X once more (here) and now we reckon this is the final word on it…

Chatting to Collider, Stewart talked about the third outing for Wolverine and said: “There is a project in development. I understand that Professor Xavier will be making more than an appearance, however, and that intrigues me.”

and what about the Old Man Logan story? “I’’m really looking forward to Hugh Jackman getting old,” Stewart said.

“You know, damn him, he looks so great! So I’m hoping to see him covered in prosthetics, you know? And then he’ll make me look better  if that’s the case.”

Wolverine III is directed by James Mangold, is written by David James Kelly and will arrive in cinemas on March 3rd, 2017

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….
