The Reavers: Villains Revealed From ‘Logan’

Well, a day without a new ‘Logan’ photo just isn’t a day anymore it seems, but at least the latest is pretty damn substantial. Posted to the film’s official Instagram account, the latest photo confirms The Reavers, originally featured in the pages of Uncanny X-Men back in the 80’s Australian Outback days of the team are up next as the villains of the film.

Reaver

A post shared by @ wponx on

The Reavers were originally looters who used an Aboriginal named Gateway to teleport them all over the world and in Australia they ran into the X-Men’s base. Later, they were introduced as cyborg assassins recruited by Donald Pierce, who’s already been listed as a character in ‘Logan.’ It’s likely they’ll use the latter version, since those were the ones that attacked and crucified Wolverine.

The Reavers were literally just appearing to blow shit up in my opinion in the books, sometimes, so even though ‘Logan’s’ tone is appearing darker, slower and more stoically deadly, one can be sure that there are going to be some heart pounding action sequences when these cyborgs show up on the scene.

First Look at Stephen Merchant as Caliban in ‘Logan’

The Logan marketing campaign via social media continues. Today we have our first look at Stephen Merchant as Caliban. The albino mutant will be assisting Wolverine as he takes care of Professor X who is in a state of cognitive decline.

In the comics, Caliban was a mutant with the ability to track other mutants. After he was captured by the Watchtower (an anti-mutant research facility), Caliban was liberated by Wolverine and several other mutants. He was one of the few who regained his powers post M-Day.

Since we already know Logan and Xavier’s powers aren’t what they used to be in a future where humans are asking “Where have all the mutants gone?”, it seems likely Wolverine and the Professor aren’t the only ones who’s powers are diminishing.

New ‘Logan’ Photo Teases Future Without Mutants

Fox’s marketing campaign for Logan is in full swing on Instagram. Over the last ten days, the film’s official title was revealed along with the official poster plus a slew of photos offering glimpses into the upcoming film. We haven’t seen a trailer yet but there is plenty to gather about the gritty and violent tone of the film as well as some clues to the plot.

Fox’s marketing campaign for Logan is in full swing on Instagram. Over the last ten days, the film’s official title was revealed along with the official poster plus a slew of photos offering glimpses into the upcoming film. We haven’t seen a trailer yet but there is plenty to gather about the gritty and violent tone of the film as well as some clues to the plot.

Today, director James Mangold and Wolverine himself — Hugh Jackman, took to twitter to dole out a few more teases from the project.

First up is some concept art showing Wolverine punching through a windshield.

But the tease that has everyone talking is a cryptic question scribed into the side of a bathroom stall asking “Where are all the mutants?”. We know that Professor X is in a state of cognitive decline and Logan’s powers aren’t what they used to be. Could it be possible mutants are losing their powers? Or have mutants gone into hiding? Either way, it seems like the people of Earth are desperate for mutants to return.

Jackman also tweeted out a photo of a smelting plant tipped over which was posted to the film’s official Instagram account a couple of days ago. While the post-apocalyptic future in Days of Future Past was averted, things look to be in pretty bad shape in the current timeline.

New ‘Logan’ Image Reveals Villain

The villain for ‘Logan’ has been revealed.

The third Wolverine film titled ‘Logan’ which will be Hugh Jackman’s last outing as the clawed mutant hero has been on a roll the last week revealing images and characters from the upcoming film. Last week we got our first look at a very old Charles Xavier and today the first image of the films villain Donald Pierce A.K.A. White Bishop was revealed.

Pierce is played by Boyd Holbrook, star of the Netflix Original Series Narcos. In the comics the cyborg Pierce was a member of ‘The Hellfire Club’ (first introduced in 2011’s X-Men: First Class) lead by Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon). Pierce challenged the leadership of Shaw and captured Charles Xavier in an attempt to harness his power. After he was defeated by the X-men and expelled by Hellfire he was sent to live in exile in a Hellfire installation in Kentucky until a group of cybernetic mercenaries known as Revears (also rumored to be in the film) broke him out. Pierce then began plotting his revenge against the X-Men and Wolverine.

First Look at Sir Patrick Stewart in ‘Logan’

Yesterday, Hugh Jackman announced that the third Wolverine film will be titled Logan via twitter — just as the films director James Mangold tweeted out a picture of the films official poster along with a photo of the scripts second page.

Today we get another look at the upcoming film in the form of a photo of Sir Patrick Stewart as an even older Charles Xavier. The photo was taken by Mangold himself.

Now before you read any further you should know the following could be considered a spoiler…

According to TheWrap, Professor X will be suffering from a cognitive breakdown. He doesn’t have a full grasp on his abilities anymore, and is also experiencing temporary amnesia as he is unable to remember who Wolverine is at times. It would be interesting if this is going to be a direct result of his powers and the more he uses them — the faster he deteriorates. Stephen Merchant will play the albino mutant Caliban as he assists Wolverine in taking care of the Professor.

Being that the film is based on the “Old Man Logan” comic book storyline, Wolverine will also be older and his powers won’t be what they used to.

The film is set in the year 2024 — when mutant births are in a decline due to unknown causes. The government is turning mutant children into killing machines in some sort of top-secret program called Transigen. The hand seen in the Logan poster belongs to a young girl who is part of the Transigen program. Instead of three claws, she has two. Wolverine is said to be serving as her mentor. Could this young girl be poised to be the first clawed heroine in the X-Men cinematic universe? Is it possible she is X-23? We know this will be Hugh Jackman’s last outing as the hero — leaving a hole to be filled in 20th Century Fox’s Marvel universe.
