We finally have official confirmation as to who Richard E. Grant will be playing in the upcoming Logan film.
Hugh Jackman shared a photo on Instagram of Richard E. Grant, confirming a theory that many fans have been tossing around for months concerning who Grant was going to be portraying in the upcoming Logan film. He captioned it as Rice, which gave us the name of the character we were all theorizing he would place. Dr. Zander Rice is one of the creators of X-23 (Dafne Keen) in the comics. The development of X-23 can be attributed almost entirely to Dr. Rice as he is the reason why she has the trigger scent that promotes her to wreck havoc and destruction while in an uncontrollable rage.
Isn’t that just swell?
Although we now have confirmation of Richard E. Grant’s character, we do not know how much of an influence he’ll have on the storyline. Obviously, if the Reavers are being sent to collect X-23, then his character is definitely involved in that. But what else will his presence accomplish in this film?
The official synopsis for the movie is below:
In 2024, mutant births are severely in decline, and people aren’t sure why. A government-type operation is turning mutant children into killing machines. From this, Logan emerges as a mentor to a mutant girl, who has two claws instead of his three.
