Wolverine 3, which has been officially titled Logan, will see Hugh Jackman for one last time playing the one role he immortalized. With Hugh appearing as Wolverine for one last time, there naturally would be many expectations from him; however, there could be another character that fans might be looking forward to see.
The character is Wolverine’s female clone, X-23. As many might have noted, there is a little girl seen in the posters of the upcoming movie, what if this girl is X-23 who Logan takes into custody in order to keep her safe?
So if she is in the movie, what could she be doing to make her role count in it? Here are some things she could be doing.,
Fight alongside Wolverine
Though she might look like a small girl in the posters, one should not forget that she is Wolverine’s clone. If angered, chances are she could draw her own adamantium claws as well to finish her enemies.
Link with other X-Men movies
With X-23 making an appearance in Wolverine 3, chances are this will set her up for another X-Men movies in the XCU. With X-Force being talked about the most, her next appearance could be in that movie as a part of the elite team led by Cable.
Carry the legacy forward
Another reason why X-23 is being introduced with this movie is because this is Hugh’s last movie as Wolverine so chances are his character would either die or retire permanently from being a superhero. Once either of this happens, X-23 would be ready to take on Wolverine’s legacy as X-Men’s female Wolverine.
Something much bigger
Finally, X-23 being present in the movie could mean something big for the franchise altogether. She could be the key to the franchise’s future or a cure/solution to a particular question within the XCU. For instance, when asked who would be known as the clawed mutant if Wolverine will not be around anymore, the answer would be X-23.
Comicbook.com speculated that X-23’s first official look could soon be revealed. Going by the pattern that is being followed on the movie’s Instagram, chances are Oct. 23 will be the date when the world will see X-23.
Wolverine 3 is scheduled to release on March 3 next year.
