Merchant's appearance has left many to conclude that he will be playing Caliban, though that's yet to be fully confirmed. Caliban's primary mutant ability is sensing and tracking others of his kind. He is also capable of channeling the emotions of people around him to enhance his strength. You can see a photo Merchant himself has posted below:
The new movie, which is to be titled Logan, will be Hugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine and will be directed once again by James Mangold. Jackman has played Wolverine seven times, playing the beclawed mutant in five X-Men movies and two stand-alone spin-offs.
Joining Jackman and Merchant in the movie will be Richard E. Grant and Narcos' star Boyd Holbrook. It will hit UK cinemas on March 3rd in 2017.
