20th Century Fox have recently released their first trailer for James Mangold's (The Wolverine) latest Wolverine solo outing, which is now officially called Logan.
Effectively set to Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt, we see the ageing Logan (Hugh Jackman) looking suitably grizzled, a nonagenarian Professor X Patrick Stewart and a young girl (Dafne Keen) who is given into Logan's care, one who is seemingly 'just like him'. It is certainly a glorious introduction for the film, which looks like it will go a very long way towards making up for the disappointment of X-Men Apocalypse.
Jackman is set to appear for the very last time as arguably the most iconic member of the X-Men for the third Wolverine solo movie, and so we are expecting big things from his swan song in the role. The new movie, written by David James Kelly, is being kept mostly quiet, though most reports have pegged a futuristic Old Man Logan inspiration.
Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl) is the main villain, while Richard E. Grant (Dom Hemingway) plays a mad scientist and Stephen Merchant (I Give It A Year), Eriq La Salle (ER), Elise Neal (Hustle & Flow) and Elizabeth Rodriguez (Fear The Walking Dead) are also on board.
Logan is set to arrive in UK cinemas on 3 March next year.
