20th Century Fox has released the final trailer for Logan starring Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. The new trailer lays out much more of the story than previous teaser videos and shows Wolverine protecting/training a young girl with similar mutant powers. Directed by James Mangold, Logan also stars Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, and newcomer Dafne Keen. Fox has set a March 3, 2017 theatrical release date.
Michael Green, Scott Frank, and James Mangold wrote the screenplay. Hutch Parker, Simon Kinberg, and Lauren Shuler Donner produced what could be Jackman’s final outing as the steely-clawed mutant. Although Jackman’s said this is his last film as Wolverine, Ryan Reynolds apparently wants Jackman to reprise the character in Deadpool 2 (or some future Deadpool project). Jackman and Reynolds recently shared a photo of the two with Pierce Brosnan, which led to speculation about Brosnan’s appearance as well as Jackman’s in the next Deadpool.
The Logan Plot: In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
