Dafne Keen’s X-23 Could Return

May 17, 2017


Alamo Drafthouse and 20th Century FOX Home Entertainment hosted a special big screen presentation of James Mangold’s Logan Noir, a black and white version of the film that will be included on the Logan DVD, Blu-ray and 4K releases on May 23.

After the presentation there was a Q&Q with star Hugh Jackman, producer Hutch Parker and Mangold himself. While Jackman revealed that he done playing Wolverine, the question that started to get made is whether or not Mangold would like to see Dafne Keen reprising her role as Laura/X-23. Although nothing is confirmed yet, but Mangold confirms that there has been conversations about that.

“Anything’s possible. I’ve certainly talked to them about it. I even talked to them about it before we made the movie. I thought she was just such a great character, but with what Dafne did, I think that certainly that’s possible.”

In the comic books, X-23 (Laura Kinney) made her Marvel comic book debut in 2004, after originally being conceived and debuting in the animated series X-Men: Evolution. Her origins stem from a group attempting to replicate the Weapon X program, which gave Wolverine his adamantium skeleton, but who decided to go in a different direction and attempt to clone Wolverine outright. The first 22 attempts at cloning Logan failed, which is where the young mutant received her code name after being the first success. In Logan, X-23 was a more general term applied to all the mutant children birthed at the same facility as Laura.

Following Logan’s death in 2014, Laura took over the Wolverine identity. She currently headline’s Marvel’s All-New Wolverine title. Prior to that, X23 was a member of X-Force.
