Director James Mangold recently tweeted that we should be seeing some of the first footage from Wolverine 3 very soon.
When asked by a fan of Twitter, Mangold responded that he is:
"Working on it every day in edit room, Vince. You'll hear and see things very soon. Glad you're pumped & I hope we surprise you."
Wolverine 3 is scheduled to premiere in theaters on March 3, 2017, so it shouldn't be too surprising if this footage ends up being a very short teaser trailer.
The other news regarding the picture is that CinemaBlend discovered confirmation that Mr. Sinister will appear in the movie. This was found in the director's commentary by Bryan Singer, which was included in the digital release of X-Men: Apocalypse.
"In that scene, we see a man wearing glasses taking the blood of Weapon X, a.k.a. Wolverine, from the Alkali Lake facility. The man puts the blood in a briefcase with the name Essex Corp. on it. Essex Corp. is the company owned by Nathaniel Essex, a.k.a. Mister Sinister. It has also been rumored that X-23 could also appear in Wolverine 3, which would fit in with Mr. Sinister's involvement.
Mr. Sinister is one of the most infamous supervillains in the X-Men universe. He is a former scientist who, after an alteration by Apocalypse, ends up possessing "enhanced durability and an extended lifespan. Over the years, Sinister has used the genetic material of other mutants to grant himself a vast array of powers including telepathy, telekinesis, superhuman strength, the ability to project concussive energy from his hands, and total control of his body at the molecular level."
There was no official confirmation of who will be playing Mr. Sinister, but it is rumored to be Richard E. Grant.
