Well, a day without a new ‘Logan’ photo just isn’t a day anymore it seems, but at least the latest is pretty damn substantial. Posted to the film’s official Instagram account, the latest photo confirms The Reavers, originally featured in the pages of Uncanny X-Men back in the 80’s Australian Outback days of the team are up next as the villains of the film.
The Reavers were originally looters who used an Aboriginal named Gateway to teleport them all over the world and in Australia they ran into the X-Men’s base. Later, they were introduced as cyborg assassins recruited by Donald Pierce, who’s already been listed as a character in ‘Logan.’ It’s likely they’ll use the latter version, since those were the ones that attacked and crucified Wolverine.
The Reavers were literally just appearing to blow shit up in my opinion in the books, sometimes, so even though ‘Logan’s’ tone is appearing darker, slower and more stoically deadly, one can be sure that there are going to be some heart pounding action sequences when these cyborgs show up on the scene.
