Who are the Reavers?

Things are looking worse and worse for our hero in Logan.

The official Instagram account for the third Wolverine film has shared a photo of a man with a gun (played by David Kallaway), captioning it "Reaver."

We already know that Logan (Hugh Jackman) will face off against Donald Pierce (Boyd Holbrook), an anti-mutant fanatic. In the comics, Pierce has a team of cyborg villains known as the Reavers. They are unite by a mutual hatred of the X-Men and Wolverine in particular. At one point, Pierce used the Reavers to kidnap Prof. X in order to use his powers to further his anti-mutant mission.

The Reavers revelation comes one day after director James Mangold shared a first look at Caliban (Stephen Merchant) in the film. Merchant also shared a photo of himself in character. But will he be friend or foe?
