"Charles, the world is not the same as it was…" 20th Century Fox has unveiled the first teaser trailer for James Mangold's new Wolverine movie, titled Logan, with Hugh Jackman playing the mutant superhero one last time. This is Jackman's 9th time playing Wolverine, commonly known as Logan though his original name is James Howlett, and this time they're sending him out on the "Old Man Logan" storyline. This is set in 2024 and follows aging Wolverine and Professor X, played again by Patrick Stewart, as they struggle with mental issues. Also starring Boyd Holbrook, Doris Morgado, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Stephen Merchant and Eriq La Salle. I love the look of Jackman as "Old Man Logan", all grizzled with the beard. This looks like it should be an exquisite grand finale for Wolvie, glad to see them going all in with this story.
Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for James Mangold's Logan, direct from Fox's YouTube:
Update! Here's an alternate red band version of the teaser for Mangold's Logan, also on YouTube:
Set in the future of 2024, Logan and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men when a corporation lead by Nathaniel Essex is destroying the world leaving it to destruction, with Logan's healing abilities slowly fading away and Xavier's Alzheimer's forcing him to forget. Logan must defeat Nathaniel Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine. Logan is once again directed by American filmmaker James Mangold (on Twitter @mang0ld), of the last Wolvie movie The Wolverine, as well as Girl, Interrupted, Kate & Leopold, Identity, Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma and Knight and Day previously. The screenplay is written by Michael Green & David James Kelly. 20th Century Fox will release Mangold's Logan in theaters everywhere March 3rd, 2017 early next year. Looking good so far?
