‘Logan’ to be final film in ‘Wolverine’ franchise
20th Century Fox released the trailer for the upcoming film “Logan.”
The film is based on the Marvel Comics character Wolverine.
This will be the third and final installment to the stand-alone “Wolverine” franchise and the tenth installment overall to the “X-Men” film series.
The trailer shows Hugh Jackman returning to play the superhero for one last run, while Patrick Stewart reprises the role of Professor Xavier.
The trailer doesn’t give a ton of information about the plot of the film, but it looks to be about Professor Xavier and Wolverine protecting a little girl with similar mutant abilities to Wolverine.
The trailer sets a dark atmosphere for the movie with Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” playing through the entire trailer, while showing Wolverine slice through his enemies.
Forbes writer Scott Mendelson mentioned that the song choice for the trailer alludes to the film being “grim, somber and violent old-school western.”
Between the lack of hints and a dark track accompanying the trailer, X-Men fans can look out for a not-so-typical Wolverine feature film.
“Logan” is scheduled to release March 3, 2017.
