Could X-23 Replace Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine?

Wolverine 3 is scheduled to hit cinema screens on March 17, 2017 and with it being Hugh Jackman’s last movie as Wolverine, the Marvel universe will need to both replace him and follow up with a mutant at least half as good as Wolverine.

Jackman has been the star of Wolverine and a co-star in the X-Men Franchise for almost a decade now, and he’s someone that fans of the Universe have taken to greatly. We’re sad to see him go, but rumour has it that the studio already has someone in mind to replace his character.

Laura Kinney a.k.a X-23 is a mutant the Marvel Universe introduced as a clone of Wolverine. She was created from a damaged genome of Wolverine, and she possesses all the same abilities as Wolverine himself. It is rumoured that X-23 may appear in Wolverine 3 as an introduction for further movies.

While nothing has yet been confirmed, we are excited to see what will happen once X-Men 3 has been released and Jackman is gone. We are open to considering follow up mutants and are interested to see whether or not X-23 will in fact feature in future X-Men Movies.
