New Details On X-23’s Role In The Wolverine 3 Surface

By

Yesterday, a batch of set photos (seen above) from The Wolverine 3 hit the web, and while they didn’t offer up anything too revealing, there is one thing that has everyone talking: the mysterious young girl who’s seen with Hugh Jackman. The common theory points to her being Laura Kinney aka X-23, despite there being no confirmation yet that the character will appear in the film.

Still, that hasn’t stopped the internet from running rampant with speculation, and That Hashtag Show is just the latest in a long list of outlets to add fuel to the fire. They believe that they’ve uncovered some details on X-23, who is apparently going under the code name Zoe. The new information comes in the form of a casting breakdown, which reads as follows:

Code Name: Zoe
12-to-15 year-old girl
A pound puppy, raised in captivity in a time of battle, without support systems of a normal childhood.
She has no family and until now, has never left the compound in which she was born.
She has an authentic intensity – Her expressions & body language speak volumes, without words.
Once released in the outside world, everything is new, every experience and every image a first.
This does not mean everything is wonderful or wondrous. Some thing she sees (things we might regard as conventional) may scare her or anger her and things we may find interesting may bore her.
She has not been instructed in many social conventions – she can eat like an animal. She studies and often mimics people’s behavior.
She has a high IQ, but is also a temperamental, impulsive and feral creature that can raise genuine mayhem.
She is a girl that has never been kissed. Looking for a real girl – not made up or done up. Also with genuine edge, not made up or put on.
Martial arts or gymnastics experience preferred but not necessary – but actress must be extremely physical and able to improvise scenes without necessarily resorting to speech. Do not play it “cute.”

Again, this casting breakdown hasn’t been confirmed by any official sources, but it certainly does sound like it would fit X-23. Plus, with all of the rumors that have emerged over the last couple of months that point to her being in the film, it’s all but a certainty at this stage that she’ll show up in some capacity.

The Wolverine 3 hits theatres on March 3rd, 2017. Be sure to stay tuned for further updates as now that the film is shooting, we’ll no doubt be learning a lot more about it in the months to come.
