20th Century Fox has finally released the first trailer for the third Wolverine film, entitled Logan, and it’s definitely not a feel-good affair.
Hugh Jackman is playing an older and weaker Wolverine this time out, as the film is set in the year 2024 when most mutants have either died off or been exterminated, and the government is trying to turn little kid mutants into killing machines. It looks like the film will focus primarily on Logan’s relationship with a mutant girls with similar abilities as himself (she has two claws instead of his three), which could be an interesting narrative route to take for the character.
I’m honestly not sold on the bleak, post-apocalyptic feel of the whole thing, but if director James Mangold can justify the tone by making Logan a mighty send-off for Jackman, I’m willing to give the whole thing a shot.
Logan hits theaters March 3, 2017.
