Laura Kinney, a.k.a. X-23 is confirmed for Logan. There have been rumors and speculation about this for some time now, In a recent Instagram post from wponx, the casting of the young actress Dafne Keen was revealed to be Laura.
Character was created for and introduced in the animated series X-Men: Evolution, and she instantly became a hit. She eventually made her comic book debut in 2004.
X-23 is the product of a top-secret program set up to replicate Weapon X, which is the group that gave Wolverine his adamantium skeleton. X-23 was created in the attempt to clone Wolverine. The first 22 attempts of this cloning process failed, but the 23rd attempt was a success and X-23 was born.
X-23 was later given the name Laura Kinney, and she has all of the superhero abilities that Wolverine has including super strength, healing factor, quick reflexes, and agility. One of the main differences — other than gender — is that X-23 has two retractable claws that spring out from her hands instead of three. She also has an extra set that comes out of her feet.
Logan will hit theaters on March 3rd, 2017.
