Ever since production got under way on Wolverine 3 last month, we've seen a number of set photos, including a batch from last weekend with star Hugh Jackman and a young actress many believe is the mutant clone X-23. In the background of those photos, we could see a limousine that has been riddled with numerous bullet holes, which appeared to be parked outside of a hotel. Today we have even more images from the set, which give us a closer look at this limo, and reveal that Logan himself was behind the wheel, presumably trying to escape from a massive gunfight.
These photos from Just Jared were taken yesterday afternoon in New Orleans, which also give us a closer look at Hugh Jackman himself, who appears to be unscathed from the shootout. Unfortunately, these photos don't feature the unidentified young girl we saw in the previous photos, and it remains to be seen if she will eventually be confirmed as X-23. Hopefully we'll get to see more of this mystery character as production continues.
It has already been confirmed that Wolverine 3 will be R-rated, but the studio has yet to confirm an official title. Just a few days ago, a report surfaced that claimed 20th Century Fox had registered two variations of the title, Wolverine: Weapon X and just Weapon X. The studio has not confirmed what the title will be quite yet, but hopefully we'll find out more as production continues.
The Weapon X title would make sense, especially considering how it may tie in to last month's X-Men: Apocalypse. That movie featured a brief appearance from Hugh Jackman's Wolverine at the Weapon X facility at Alkali Lake, where he was unleashed and started taking out numerous soldiers. There is also a post credit scene from that movie that could very well tie into Wolverine 3, if the latest rumors are to be believed.
The post credit scene featured an unidentified man stepping over the bodies of all the men Wolverine took out at Alkali Lake. While we never see his face, this character takes a vial of blood labeled Wolverine, which many suspect will be used to create the mutant X-23. While we wait for more details on Wolverine 3, take a look at the latest set photos below, and stay tuned as more details come in.
