Yes, even Father Time catches up to Wolverine. In what is expected to be Hugh Jackman’s last go as the taloned anti-hero, Wolverine has markedly aged in the upcoming Logan. That of course doesn’t mean he can’t dish out cold Adamantium justice though. With the X-Men gone and Professor Charles Xavier suffering Alzheimer’s, Logan must square off against ruthless businessman Nathaniel Essex (who, according to the comics, is really Mister Sinister) and his forces led by the mutant hating cyborg, Donald Pierce. Seems Wolverine has a clone in the form of a young girl named Laura Kinney (also known as X-23) that both Xavier and Essex want to bring to their respective sides. Check out this first trailer, tracked by Johnny Cash’s haunting rendition of Hurt, courtesy of 20th Century Fox.
Logan stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Stephen Merchant, Boyd Holbrook, Doris Morgado, Sienna Novikov, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Eriq La Salle.
Set in the future of 2024, Logan and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men when a corporation lead by Nathaniel Essex is destroying the world leaving it to destruction, with Logan’s healing abilities slowly fading away and Xavier’s Alzheimer’s forcing him to forget. Logan must defeat Nathaniel Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine.
Logan reveals his claws again in UK theaters on March 2, 2017 and US theaters on March 3, 2017.
