May 5, 2016

In yet another odd casting addition to Wolverine 3, Variety reports that ER alumni Eriq La Salle has joined the film in another unnamed role.

Considering his background playing a doctor it’s not hard to imagine him being able to learn a bunch of terminology to play a tech genius like Forge, a brilliant mutant inventor that just happens to be able to build anything including a working time machine.

Forge just also happens to be a member of the X-Force.

Wolverine 3 is looking like a very male-centric cast includes Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant and Stephen Merchant. A really odd contrast to The Wolverine, which boasted three major female roles.

Production begins very soon with it’s release date set for March 3rd, 2017.
