Wolverine 3: Caliban is cold in the back on a new image!
Caliban, the mysterious mutant played by Stephen Merchant in Wolverine 3, is back on a new image. And as always, it’s cold in the back!
Logan faced Magneto and the Sentinels, traveled back in time and spent decades locked up and tortured by the demented colonel Stryker. But it would seem that he is at the end of the scroll and that his next enemies will finally overcome his incredible resilience. After all, James Mangold, the director, has tease us that Wolverine 3 would be entitled to a dark end , which seems also very appropriate for the situation since the film will mark the last appearance of Hugh Jackman in the role of mutant. Among other opponents then, Logan will have to fight Donald Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) and his band of fierce Reavers. But there is another mutant who, however, will also stand up against him. And it is Caliban , played by Stephen Merchant, which was recently seen in X-Men: Apocalypse in the guise of Tómas Lemarquis. You know, the dubious guy who sells information to other mutants and who hired Psylocke as a bodyguard? Good, since, the character has changed head and allegiance. This did not prevent definitely not to be more formidable than ever , as the new image of him that has just been unveiled would tend to prove it.
Hat screwed on the head, goggles on the eyes, scarf around the mouth … there is no doubt, Caliban looks ready to face a sandstorm! The image, which was unveiled by Kellvin Chavez on the site Comic Book Movie, obviously reminds us of what we saw in the first trailer bleak Wolverine 3 , in which Caliban showed briefly in this appearance. And it’s not because we do not see his face that the character does not make us a little freak! It is unclear what the role of the mutant even if the comics and the movie X-Men: Apocalypse can give us some clues about it. Caliban is indeed part of the Morlocks, a group of mutants that lives in the sewers, and has a capacity that is often very useful. It is indeed able to locate the other mutants, which makes it a source of information of choice. At melty, so we said that maybe is there to help the Reavers to get their hands on the small X-23 , Logan decides to take him under his wing. We will see at the exit of the film if Caliban is also the kind to take to our hero … or if he prefers to stay away from the fight! Anyway, this very stylish image in black and white is well in the tone of the other photos of the film that have recently made their way on the canvas and tells us once again that the last adventure of Logan will be dark to wish ! In your opinion, what is the role of Caliban?
