'The Final Wolverine'; Possible X-23 Character Description Revealed?
By Matt O.
Earlier today via The Hashtag show on Youtube, revealed the description of a character from the upcoming James Mangold directed The Final Wolverine. The character is referred to as "Zoe", who might really be a young version of X-23 in the film. Check out the lengthy character description below.
"12 to 15 year-old girl. Still a child, but a wounded badass, a pound puppy, raised in captivity in a time of battle, without support systems of normal childhood. She has no family and until now, has never left the compound in which she was born. She has an authentic intensity – her expressions & body language speak volumes, without words. Once released in the outside world, everything is new – every experience and every image a first. This does not mean everything is wonderful or wondrous. Some things she sees (things we might regard as conventional) may scare her or anger her and things we may find interesting may bore her. She has not been instructed in many social conventions – she can eat like an animal. She studies and often mimics people’s behavior. She has a high IQ, but is also a temperamental, impulsive and feral creature that can raise genuine mayhem. She is a girl that has never been kissed. Looking for a REAL girl – not made up or done up. Also with genuine edge, not made up or put on. Martial arts or gymnastics experience preferred but not necessary – but actress must be extremely physical and able to improvise scenes without necessarily resorting to speech. Do NOT play it “cute”."
Interesting enough, around the same time this story broke, we were reporting on some cool set pics from the set of The Final Wolverine where a young actress around the age in the description above was filming scenes with Hugh Jackman's "Old Man Logan" and Professor X on the run from some bad guys!

So what do you X-Men fans think? Do you believe this character description is for a young X-23, and the young girl spotted on the set of The Final Wolverine? Sound off in the comments section below with your thoughts, thanks!
The Final Wolverine is set to hit theaters on March 3rd, 2017.
