RUMOR: Possible WOLVERINE 3 Character Breakdown For 'X-23' Surfaces

A possible character breakdown for X-23 has surfaced giving us our first details on what kind of actress the studio is seeking for the fan-favorite role and by the looks of it, it sounds pretty badass!

Yesterday, we were able to catch a glimpse of Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart filming scenes for the next Wolverine sequel, which is due out March 2017, and we also caught them alongside a mysterious young actress, who now many believe to be Laura Kinney a.k.a. X-23. Whether or not she was actually portraying Wolverine's young clone is yet-to-be seen, but judging by this recently uncovered character breakdown, it's not an impossibility.  

That Hashtag Show, whose track record includes nailing the Iron Fist casting, has been able to obtain a possible breakdown for a mysterious young female character, code name "Zoe," that they believe may actually be the mutant clone X-23, who has been widely rumored to have a major presence in the eagerly awaited James Mangold-directed sequel. The breakdown is intentionally vague and doesn't offer much of a hint in regards to her mutant abilities, but the characterization, which describes her being raised in captivity and her personality as being "temperamental, impulsive, and feral," is more or less spot-on with how X-23 has been previously depicted on television and in the comics. Check it out for yourself below:

  • Code Name: Zoe
  • 12-to-15 year-old girl
  • A pound puppy, raised in captivity in a time of battle, without support systems of a 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 wonderous. Some thing 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, impuslive 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."


Well, it sounds like if they get the casting right, we could be in for a real treat, not just in this film, but in future X-Men films as well. The actress seen alongside Jackman yesterday seems to fit in that 12-to-15 age range they're looking for, although she did look to be on the younger side of the spectrum, so they could always be lining up someone else entirely for this major part.

What do you guys think? Is she X-23? or will we get a bigger name? Sound off with your thoughts below!
