We have an exclusive first glimpse at Boyd Holbrook‘s bionic arm as villain Donald Pierce in James Mangold’s Logan.
As a set photo of Boyd in costume as Pierce has made it’s way to us.
Here is Boyd with actor and US Army Veteran Matthew McClain who plays “burned faced Reaver”. This also certainly confirms Matthew’s role as a Reaver in the film and that Pierce is likely indeed their leader, like in the comics. I’m digging Boyd’s throat tattoo here.

This seems to be one of the few Logan images not being shared by James Mangold and Hugh Jackman.
Justin Lebrun (The Big Short, Midnight Special, Into The Badlands, Jurassic World, Terminator: Genisys) is another actor listed as playing a Reaver in the film. He appeared in Daddy’s Home, which also had Sienna Novikov in a role. We first reported that Sienna is likely playing Laura aka X-23 in the film, as backed-up in a report from The Wrap.
McClain’s IMDB page had a set photo of himself, Justin LeBrun and James Rawlings in costume as Reavers. This pretty much confirms the trio of actors will face Hugh Jackman as Reavers in the film. The three actors are wearing the same polo shirt that Matthew is wearing in the photo with Boyd.
I’m starting to get curious if Boyd’s robotic arm will have laser claws like the private military group Strikeforce X, as the Reavers seem to be taking visual cues from them, including microphone headsets.
Along with this shot which McClain mentions includes the “main Reavers” hanging-out in New Mexico, Rawlings is seen here as well.
UPDATE: Photos have since been removed.
James Rawlings (The Dark Knight Returns, Battleship, Deepwater Horizon, Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, Looper, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Oblivion, Dawn of The Planet of The Apes) is seemingly absent from the cast list on IMDB, which isn’t surprising as confirmed cast members like Dafne Keen are also missing from it.
We’re kind of hoping that the martial artist (Wushu/MMA), fitness model and actor could be playing a version of cyborg villain Omega Red, but it’s currently just our own wishful speculation. Although, James did play a Russian soldier in RED.
Equally possible Boyd’s Donald Pierce is some hybrid of the two villains as he’s also a cyborg.
I’d like to thank reader Wesley for sending this our way.
UPDATE: James Mangold and Fox have just confirmed The Reavers themselves, with the recent Instagram post. It’s looks to be actor David Kallaway and the group is indeed taking visual cues from Strikeforce X.
