Wolverine 3 has found its villain. Boyd Holbrook, who starred in the acclaimed Netflix drug cartel thriller Narcos last year, has signed on to play the lead antagonist opposite Hugh Jackman’s titular X-Men.

According to Deadline (via Squareeyed), Holbrook will play a “relentless, calculating and intense head of security for a global enterprise who is set against Jackman’s clawed Wolverine/Logan hero.”

James Mangold is returning to direct in what will be Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine, after nearly 20 years of playing the iconic Marvel superhero.

Jackman said this about his final outing: It just felt like it was the right time to do it. And let’s be honest, 17 years. I never thought in a million years it would last, so I’m so grateful to the fans for the opportunity of playing it. … I kind of have in my head what we’re going to do in this last one. It just feels like this is the perfect way to go out.

Wolverine 3 is due out in March 2017.
