THE WOLVERINE III has its latest cast member. According to Deadline, HELLO LADIES star/co-creator and THE OFFICE  co-creator has just closed a deal to join the latest mutant flick. There’s currently no word as to what his role as of this point, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as the story develops.

Of course, THE WOLVERINE III is a film that’s shaping up to be quite the big deal, as it will (allegedly) mark Hugh Jackman’s last time as Logan (a.k.a. the Wolverine). For over fifteen years, the X-MEN franchise has soared, and while the franchise is obviously much bigger than Wolverine, it does owe a certain amount of credit to Jackman and his interpretation of the character.

James Mangold, who directed THE WOLVERINE back in 2013, is set to return to the helm of this franchise, and considering how good that film was, we’re expecting big things from THE WOLVERINE III.

What role do you think Stephen Merchant will play in the film? Are there any mutants, villains, or other miscellaneous side characters that you can see the English actor portray? Let us know your thoughts down below!
