One of the most eagerly anticipated offerings of the year is set to arrive in theaters actually quite soon. Logan – or Hugh Jackman’s supposed Wolverine swan song – appears to be firing on all cylinders, at the very least from a marketing perspective. The third standalone Wolverine film in the X-Men universe – itself a complication scenario considering the group of characters licensed to 20th Century Fox versus those a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – is taking on a rougher, harder, more R-rated-er swagger is Jackman’s characterization appears to drift off into the cinematic sunset.
So comes the second trailer for Logan. The film centers around a more weary Wolverine as he attempts to aid an ill Professor X (a returning Patrick Stewart) while hiding out on the Mexican border when dark forces suddenly become a threat. More than that, Logan seems focused on being a legacy-type of film – of the character and surely of the actor leaving behind his most famous creation (Jackman has played Wolverine since the very beginning, Bryan Singer’s X-Men, which opened in the summer of 2000.) James Mangold, who previously the directed The Wolverine, is back at the helm with a script by Mangold, Michael Green and Scott Frank (Mangold and David James Kelly earn story by credits).
Check out the latest trailer for Logan below. The film hits theaters on March 3rd.
