Narcos’ Boyd Holbrook has been signed to the upcoming Wolverine 3.
His character doesn’t have a name but is described as chief of security for a global corporation pursuing Jackman’s character, so it sounds like he’ll be playing a villain.
Given his prior appearance as a DEA agent doggedly pursuing Pablo Escobar, this seems like pretty good casting on Fox’s part.
It’s not known at this time whether Holbrook is playing an existing character from the comics or a original creation for the film.
The film is expected to begin shooting in May with James Mangold directing and Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart reprising their roles.
Wolverine 3 is slated for March 3rd 2017.
