It might not be news that Hugh Jackman will be donning the adamantium claws once again for Wolverine 3, but rumours have been making the rounds that X-23 might be joining him in the third Wolverine film.
According to Superhero Hype, X-23 might be joining Patrick Steward’s Charles Xavier and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in the next instalment of the series.
X-23 like Wolverine has the Weapon X program to thank for her existence, as they decided to rather clone Wolverine outright. Her name stems from the fact that she was the 23rd clone and the only one to survive the process. Similar to Wolverine, X-23 has superhuman strength, reflexes, and a healing factor. The main difference between the two is that she only has two claws on each hand and an extra claw that can extend from her feet.
Wolverine 3 will be directed by James Mangold and is currently scheduled for release on the 3rd of March 2017.
