On March 3rd, 2017, Hugh Jackman will be delivering his swan song as the scrappy Canadian mutant who is “the best there is at what he does”. Fox’s currently untitled Wolverine 3 promises to be the final outing for Jackman’s portrayal of Logan, though the possibility of a recast down the line is always in the cards. Little has been revealed about the plot of the film itself, as Jackman and director James Mangold (The Wolverine) are keeping things under wraps this time around, though one of its villains has finally come to light. Mr. Sinister, one of the big bads of the X-Men universe, will be making his cinematic debut in the upcoming blockbuster and will most likely be playing the main threat for Wolverine this time around.
Sinister has had a long run in the comics, acting as a strange antagonist to the X-Men, and sometimes the rest of the Marvel Universe. His appearance alone is enough to have readers questioning what exactly his deal is, so we thought we’d go into some detail of who Mr. Sinister is and why he may be one of the biggest threats that Wolverine in the movies has faced yet.
