A lot of folks are convinced that we’ll never see Dafne Keen as Laura Kinney, aka X - 23 , ever again since once Disney took over Fox, it became likely that when they start to develop the X - Men and related characters that they’ll want to start from scratch, and it’s hard to deny such a thing.

Keen was just 12-years-old when she played Laura/X-23, the child clone of Wolverine, in 2017’s Logan, which marked Hugh Jackman’s farewell performance as the superhero.
