Bearded Hugh Jackman on "Wolverine 3" Set Fuels "Old Man Logan" Speculation

The evidence grows that "Wolverine 3" is an "Old Man Logan" adaptation, as Hugh Jackman has been spotted on the film's New Orleans set, sporting a grizzly beard.

Just Jared snapped the pics from the "Wolverine 3" set, in which Jackman's wearing a suit and rocking the bearded look that's closely associated with the Old Man Logan.

The prospect of seeing an "Old Man Logan" adaptation has been heavily hinted at by writer Mark Millar, but there's yet to be an official confirmation. So far we know the film will be R-rated, set in the future and have a "Western" feel -- which sounds a lot like "Old Man Logan" to us. Also rumored for the film is the cinematic debut of X-23, and the anti-mutant cyborg Reavers.

Directed by James Mangold, and starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant and Elise Neal, "Wolverine 3" is slated for a March 3, 2017 release.
