‘Logan’ Photos Reveal First Look At Stephen Merchant As 'Caliban'

Created by Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum, Caliban his first aspect surfaces in 1981's "Uncanny X-Men" #148. An albino mutant, Caliban has a mutant hunting ability that made him a useful member of both the Morlocks and X-Force. The character shortly appeared in X-Men: Apocalypse and was played by Tómas Lemarquis.

It was formerly afloat that the mutant character Caliban would be emerging in the approaching third Wolverine movie, simply titled Logan, and that comic Stephen Merchant would love to take on the role. Now, director James Mangold has seemingly inveterate that rumor with a new images of the actor.

Leading stars Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart, Logan is upcoming on March 3, 2017. The new film will label the ninth time that Hugh Jackman has played the personality on the big screen. Mangold is directing from a script by David James Kelly.

Mister Sinister and his "Essex Corp" were formerly said to be the villain(s) of the movie, with rumors indicating Richard E. Grant will be the villain, though it remains unofficial. We know that the primary knaves from the film will involve both The Reavers, led by Boyd Holbrook's Donald Pierce, as well as Wolverine's favorite team, Weapon X.

It stands to cause that Sinister's role in the film will be tied to the creation of X-23, the young female copies of Wolverine also along for the film's expedition, which makes the post-credit scene for X-Men: Apocalypse finally make some understanding.

Caliban has the skill to psionically detect those who carry the mutant genes within a 25-mile reach. He's also been known to hold the ability to absorb fear from those close to him and turn it into opposite reaction. But it's that first strength that should come in convenient for Hugh Jackman's final outing - another new teaser photo from Logan featured graffiti that read, "Where have all the mutants gone?"
