Logan is an upcoming American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Wolverine, produced by Marvel Entertainment, TSG Entertainment and The Donners’ Company, and distributed by 20th Century Fox. It is intended to be the tenth installment in the X-Men film series, as well as the third and final Wolverine solo film following X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) and The Wolverine (2013). The film takes inspiration from “Old Man Logan” by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, which follows a past-his-prime Logan undertaking a final adventure in the post-apocalyptic future.
The film is directed by James Mangold, who co-wrote the screenplay with Michael Green and Scott Frank, from a story by David James Kelly and Mangold. Hugh Jackman stars as Logan in what is intended to be his final portrayal of the character after having played the role for 17 years, with Patrick Stewart co-starring as Charles Xavier. Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez are all featured in supporting roles.
Following the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past, an aging Logan has his healing factor starting to fail while taking care of an ailing Professor Xavier and protecting a young girl named Laura from a organization called Transigen at the Mexican border. With both lives in peril, Logan ventures into one more battle.
The film features Dafne Keen as Laura Kinney A mysterious young girl who is “very much” like Logan. Keen’s character is in fact X-23, the female clone of Logan, who shows just how much like him she is in the final trailer you can view below. The trailer has obvious Mad Max influences going on and is an intriguing mixture of action and melancholy due to the circumstances it depicts. This film looks like it has the potential to outdo the previous Wolverine films and serve as a suitable finale for Jackman’s lengthy run as the character.
The film is set to premiere on March 3, 2017.
