Just hours after “Logan” director James Mangold revealed Stephen Merchant’s character in the third and final Wolverine film, Merchant has taken it upon himself to share a new image of the mutant in all his pale skin glory.

Merchant shared a black and white photo on his Instagram account that sees a mutant wearing a dark hat with the bottom-half of his faced covered. Not much can be taken from the image itself, but there is speculation that Merchant is playing the mutant-hunting Morlock Caliban — though Fox is keeping his role tight-lipped for now. Merchant’s accompanying quote reads: “How I spent my summer.”
Speculation is that “Logan” will borrow heavily from Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s “Old Man Logan” comic book storyline, in which an older Logan lives in a world where the heroes lost and the villains stand triumphant. Notable comic book characters set to appear in “Logan” are Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Wolverine clone X-23 (Sienna Novikov), in addition to the villainous Donald Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) and Dr. Zander Rice (Richard E. Grant).
Directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant and Stephen Merchant, “Logan” arrives in theaters on March 3, 2017.
