20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for Logan starring Hugh Jackman as Old Man Wolverine. Watch the awesome trailer.
Wolverine may be an ageless mutant, but Hugh Jackman is not, and as a result, we’ve watched him grow older over his past 16 years on the big screen. But this will be the first movie where Wolverine really gets to show his age. He’s covered in scars now because his healing factor has deteriorated significantly in his old age.
Starring Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart, Logan is coming to theaters on March 3, 2017. The new film will mark the ninth time that Hugh Jackman has played the character on the big screen. Mangold is directing from a script by David James Kelly.
The film is set a few years in the future. Mutant births are in severe decline, and a shadowy operation known as Transigen has been turning mutant kids into killing machines. Logan himself isn’t doing so hot, and neither is Professor X (Patrick Stewart). But he takes a little girl named Laura under his wing. Also known as X-23, she’s a mutant with similar abilities as Logan. Stephen Merchant plays Caliban, who helps Logan care for Professor X, and Boyd Holbrook is the villain Donald Pierce. Richard E. Grant plays mad scientist type Zander Rice.
