Come one, come all.. we have finally gotten a first look at what Logan would be like, and I must say I’m impressed.
The third Wolverine movie titled Logan would feature Hugh Jackman for one last time as the beast Wolverine. As it’s been reported, the movie will have a much darker vibe than the previous movies in the X-Men collection, and even superhero movies as a whole.
So what do we know about Logan so far? Well first and most obvious thing to notice is that we are getting Old Man Logan, yes, yes we are. The trailer shows us a bloody, pained and older looking Wolverine, an even older looking Patrick Stewart as Professor X and a mysterious young girl.
Now, according to what we’ve been hearing about the movie, it’s 2024 and all the other mutants have been eradicated so who is the young girl? Well if you listened properly while watching the trailer, you would have heard Professor X explain to Wolverine “she’s like you, very much like you”. The young girl is most likely Laura Kinney a.k.a X-23.
Brief history of X-23, she’s the product of lab experiments. Some scientists were trying to recreate Weapon X (Wolverine) but they kept failing as the piece of Wolverine’s DNA they had contained only a healthy X-chromosome, the Y-chromosome was damaged. After failing 22 attempts, they succeeded on the 23rd which brought about the name X-23. Like Logan, she has the metallic claws but instead of three claws in both fists like him, she’s got two in both fists and one that comes out of her feet. However unlike Wolverine she was raised from birth to be a killer so she might be even more vicious.
Also even though we’ve been given hints of Caliban (played by Stephen Merchant) being in the movie, it looks like he didn’t make this first trailer… or did he? Caliban is an albino mutant with the ability to sense and track other mutants, also he rolls with a group of outlawed mutants collectively known as the Morlocks. So maybe we’ll also have the Morlocks eh? Man can but hope.
Wolverine 3 a.k.a Logan hits cinemas March 3, 2017.
