More news has arrived for the third Wolverine film Logan as a new villain has been revealed.
We already know that Mister Sinister will be the villain in the sequel, but now Donald Pierce, a cyborg with superhuman abilities has also been confirmed. The announcement was made on director James Mangold’s Instagram, who posted a photo of Boyd Holbrook as the latest villain:
Earlier this month, Hugh Jackman revealed the title of the film as well as labelling it as “darker” and “very different in tone”. Mangold released the poster on twitter also:

Plot details were then uncovered by The Wrap who reported that “Logan takes place in the year 2024. Logan looks bad, and drinks a lot. He’s sick, his powers are fading, and he heals much more slowly”
Mangold then shared an image of an older Professor X, played by Patrick Stewart:
