Shortly after, producer Hutch Parker confirmed to Collider that the actor was telling the truth about his return (as if anyone doubted him!)
On top of that, the production also announced that Fear The Walking Dead and Orange Is The New Black alum Elizabeth Rodriguez will be joining the cast in a mystery role that is “relatively minor, but critical to the plot,” according to Entertainment Weekly.
Wolverine 3 will be Hugh Jackman’s last turn as the iconic X-Men. The film is based off the popular “Old Man Logan” plot line from the comics and will be Rated R.
The film is due to hit theaters on March 3, 2017.
