BAFTA LA's Behind Closed Doors With Stephen MerchantThe third Wolverine movie is going to give us the second Caliban within a single year.

"Logan" director James Mangold and Stephen Merchant both shared photos of Merchant in character, appearing to confirm his role as albino mutant Caliban, who was also in "X-Men: Apocalypse" earlier this year, but played by Tomas Lemarquis.

Check out the new photos of Merchant's character:

Those of us who still know Stephen Merchant best from comedies like "The Office," "Hello Ladies," and "Hot Fuzz" -- not to mention his super-dirty "Lip Sync Battle" -- were pleasantly surprised to hear of his casting in a Wolverine sequel. But now some fans are even more surprised that the "X-Men" universe is being reshuffled with another recasting.

"Logan" stars Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart (as a much older Professor X) with Boyd Holbrook as villain Donald Pierce. A new image on Instagram suggests Pierce's storyline will be as leader of the assassins called The Reavers.

"Logan" is scheduled for release March 3, 2017.
