We have been hearing for some time now that the third and final outing for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine on the big screen would be loosely based on the acclaimed Mark Millar comic storyline ‘Old Man Logan’. Executive producer Simon Kinberg as good as said so a month ago when he confirmed that the film will be set in the future. But if that wasn’t enough, the actor’s face might help in convincing you.
The Daily Mail has snapped some pictures of Jackman rocking a salt and pepper sideburns/beard combo on the streets of New York City recently while he was shopping with his wife Debora-Lee Furness. With production on ‘Wolverine 3’ set to commence in about a month or so, there is a really good chance that this style is for Logan’s latest look. Though we can’t share the copyrighted pictures here, head to Daily Mail’s site to check them out. You can also see a bit of the new look on the actor’s Instagram, where it also looks like he’s gone full Old Man Logan with a buzz cut under his hat:
Of course, there is a small possibility that this could be a ruse to fool paparazzi, but somehow I find that to be unlikely. With all signs pointing to ‘Old Man Logan’, this is probably just another indicator that the rumors are true. So now that the star has the look down, we can focus on who the major players will be since the original story relies heavily on characters that Fox doesn’t have the rights to use onscreen. Hopefully we get word on those developments sooner rather than later.
