Director James Mangold has posted a photo of Stephen Merchant’s character as he appears in the new Wolverine film Logan on Twitter.
For those of you who follow Merchant on Instagram, you’re likely not surprised by the new look - he posted a video before filming began of him shaving his hair off with the caption “An actor prepares. #Wolverine3”, which you can watch here:
The new look has also led fans to believe that he will be playing the mutant Caliban, who was last seen in X-Men: Apocalypse portrayed by Tómas Lemarquis. Nothing official has been said yet about his character, but given his appearance and the fact that he posted a photo (below) of the character to Instagram, a role as Caliban looks increasingly likely.
Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook and Richard E. Grant will also be appearing in Logan.
The film comes to UK cinemas on 3 March 2017.
