We now know the identity of a major antagonist in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming film, Logan – Hugh Jackman’s final hurrah as Wolverine. On the film’s Instagram page, a photo revealed actor Boyd Holbrook in a black and white image with the caption: Pierce.
Holbrook will be portraying Donald Pierce, who in the comics was a member of the Hellfire Club’s Inner Circle. After departing the club, Pierce established a threatening new group known as the Reavers, serving as its leader.
More than likely, Holbrook’s Donald Pierce isn’t the only villain that Jackman’s Wolverine has to face in the upcoming film. Actor Richard E. Grant was cast in the film, and was reportedly playing a “mad scientist type” character.
What do you guys think of this news? Do you think Boyd Holbrook will make a great Donald Pierce? Also, what else are you excited to see in Logan? Hopefully, we will see a trailer for the film soon, preferably a Red Band one, so we can truly see how far they are pushing it with Jackman’s last dance with the adamantium claws.
Directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal, and Elizabeth Rodriguez, Logan opens in theaters on March 3, 2017.
