Over the last few weeks, the rumour mill surrounding Wolverine 3 has been gently turning away, with various sources claiming to know new bits of information about the secretive film.

One such piece of information has surrounded the introduction of X-23, the character many expect will replace Hugh Jackman as the clawed mutant.

Speculation has also been growing over which comic book story arc the film will be based on, most of which has pointed to Old Man Logan.

Thanks to some pesky photographers, we’ve been given a first look at Hugh Jackman on the set of Wolverine 3, the actor looking particularly bearded and disheveled, reminiscent of Old Man Logan’s look.

Fox are keeping information to the bare minimum regarding the film, with little of any substance actually known about the sequel.
