Although internet punters have long suspected this to be the case, Fox has now confirmed that actress Dafne Keen (the young girl in the trailer and posters) is playing X-23, a female Wolverine clone, in Logan. The revelation came in a pic posted to the film’s wponx Instagram account, revealing that the character is called Laura; X-23’s real name is Laura Kinney.
X-23 first appeared in a 2003 episode of the animated series X-Men: Evolution, and made her comic book debut in 2004 in NYX #3. She was an attempt to replicate the Weapon X program by cloning Wolverine. The first 22 attempts failed… so you can now guess where she got her name from. X-23 has similar powers to Wolverine but only two claws on each hand and one extra claw on each foot.
