'Wolverine 3' Villains Revealed
Hugh Jackman has played Wolverine since 2000, and the actor is set to don the claws just once more when Wolverine 3 hits theaters next year. The new film has recently begun filming, and though most details regarding the plot have been tightly guarded, the villains have apparently been revealed.

According to a new report by Nerdist News, the villains of Wolverine 3 are set to be the Reavers. So just who, exactly, are the Reavers? They're a group of mutant-hating cyborgs with names like "Skullbuster" and "Bonebreaker" who are led by a guy named Donald Pierce, who himself has been a frequent X-Men villain over the years. In addition to Pierce, the Reavers have also counted Lady Deathstrike among their members. Deathstrike is one of Wolverine's greatest enemies, and she possesses an adamantium skeleton and claws, as well as other enhancements, all of which she had implanted just so she could kill Wolverine. 

So what else is known about the film? Well, the reports says that it takes place in the future and is based in part on the Old Man Logan storyline from the comics, where an elderly Wolverine fights back in a supervillain-controlled dystopia. Could it be that cyborgs, led by the Reavers, have wiped out mutants and taken control of the country? And then someone or something pulls Logan out of hiding and into conflict with the bad guys? Sounds like a plan to us.
