Wolverine 3 set photos reveal a grizzled, fully bearded Logan

While Wolverine is virtually ageless, Hugh Jackman is anything but. The actor is reprising his iconic role for what could be the final time in Wolverine 3, and some new set pics courtesy of Just Jared (opens in new tab) shows that Logan will be even more grizzled and bearded than usual this time round. Check it out below...

There's not that much context to be gleaned from these images, but the bearded look could be hinting at Wolverine 3 adapting elements of the popular Old Man Logan comic. Although there are plenty of characters from the storyline that wouldn't make it into the film such as Hawkeye, Red Skull, and Hulk, it would be a perfect way to end Jackman's tenure as the fan-favourite mutant. With 20th Century Fox keeping their cards close to their chest at this point this is just pure speculation - along with who Wolverine may be fighting with (opens in new tab) or against (opens in new tab) - but hopefully we'll get some answers sooner rather than later. 

Directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, and Elizabeth Rodriguez, Wolverine 3 will be released in cinemas on March 3, 2017.
