Back in early May, filming began on 20th Century Fox's Wolverine 3, which has been confirmed to be Hugh Jackman's last movie as the title character, which will also be R-rated. While there is still very little known about the actual story, a few set photos surfaced during the production, which started in New Orleans before moving to New Mexico. Now it seems filming has wrapped, with star Hugh Jackman posting a fond farewell to the state.
While Hugh Jackman doesn't specifically say that filming has wrapped in his Twitter image, which features the actor overlooking some picturesque New Mexico scenery, he does say "Thank you New Mexico!" On Location Vacations has also confirmed that filming has wrapped, with the actor posting photos back in his native Australia just a few days after his goodbye image. Now that filming has wrapped, hopefully 20th Century Fox will finally start revealing any details about this mystery project, including the title.
Last week, Hugh Jackman made headlines with another photo, that appeared to tease his Old Man Logan look in this superhero adventure. While this story line has never been confirmed, it has long been rumored that this movie will follow the Old Man Logan comics, which feature Logan losing his mutant powers as he starts to finally age for the first time since getting his powers through the Weapon X program. 20th Century Fox has set a March 3, 2017 release date, so we'll have to wait and see when the first footage will surface.
Hugh Jackman is joined by longtime co-star Patrick Stewart as Professor X, along with Boyd Holbrook as the new villain, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant and Eriq La Salle, although no details were given for their characters. There have also been photos from the set featuring an unidentified young girl, who many believe is playing the popular Marvel Comics character X-23, a clone of Wolverine himself. The post credit sequence of X-Men: Apocalypse featured a mysterious character walking through the devastation at Alkali Lake, where he picks up a vial of blood marked "Wolverine." Many believe this vial will be used to create X-23, but that hasn't been confirmed.
James Mangold (The Wolverine) is directing from a script by David James Kelly and Michael Green. We'll have to wait and see when 20th Century Fox will finally unveil new details about this highly-anticipated superhero movie, so stay tuned for more details. In the meantime, take a look at Hugh Jackman's final photo from New Mexico below.
