A new image from Fox’s upcoming Logan has hit the web. The image shows off Stephen Merchant’s Caliban stepping out of the shadows and into the light. The image is in keeping with the visual style that Logan has been presented in from the trailers, TV spots and posters.
Check out the image here:
Mangold recently opened up about working with Merchant and bring this unique character to life.
“I’m always interested to find the thing that looks most interesting on the actors. Stephen is a huge man. One of the things that is so wonderful filming with him for a character like this is that he’s a good six inches taller than Logan, and huge over Patrick. The little kid in the movie would come up to basically his knee. So there’s a wonderful sense of scale – but he has heart too. So that was a wonderful energy to enter the movie, and someone who instead of turning things into their own energy kind of joined ours.”
This week has been full of Logan news including new images in Empire Magazine showing off Caliban and giving his character a different description. Caliban is a described as a “mutant nurse.”
“In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.”
Logan is directed by James Mangold, and was co-written by Mangold, Scott Frank and Michael Green. It stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrook and Stephen Merchant.
It is scheduled to be released in the US on March 3rd.
