The sequel to The Wolverine has founds its villain with Boyd Holbrook.
Deadline reports Boyd Holbrook, known for roles in Narcos, Gone Girl and Hatfields & McCoys, will play the lead villain opposite Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart.
Boyd Holbrook’s character is described as: “a relentless, calculating and intense head of security for a global enterprise who is set against Jackman’s clawed Wolverine/Logan hero.”
It’s been said the movie is supposed to be based on the “Old Man Logan” Marvel Comics storyline; however, as some of those characters are owned by Marvel Studios (Red Skull, Abomination, Hulk, Hawkeye, etc.), it’s possible Holbrook’s character could be an original character created for the movie.
The untitled Wolverine movie has a March 2, 2017 release, so it should begin filming soon, which will be Hugh Jackman’s list, and it’s also been said the film may be rated-R. James Mangold returns to direct.
A list of actors said to be in contention for Paramount and Alan Taylor’s new Terminator: Genesis movie for the part of Kyle Reese includes Boyd Holbrook, Tom Cocquerel, Wilson Bethel, Sam Reid and Jai Courtney.

About a week ago it came out that Marc Webb and Sony were looking for a dark and edgy Harry Osborn for Amazing Spider-Man 2, with three actors mentioned.
However, now it’s being said that Harry Osborn might be more of a jock, as the studio is apparently now looking for a Harry Osborn who is athletic and good-looking.
The latest names that are being thrown around for the “athletic and good-looking” Harry Osborn include: Sam Claflin (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Snow White & the Huntsman); Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables); Douglas Booth (Noah); Boyd Holbrook (The Big C, Hatfields & McCoys, The Host).
While I don’t see why you can’t have all of the above, I think we get the comparison they are trying to get across, but here’s the pic that THR chose to run with their article, dark, edgy, athletic and good-looking?
The “Amazing Spider-Man 2” swings into theaters May 2nd, 2014 directed by Marc Webb starring Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and Shailene Woodley.
