Of course it’s set to Johnny Cash’s cover of “Hurt.” 20th Century Fox has dropped the highly anticipated first trailer for LOGAN, the third Wolverine film and what seems to be a bookend for the X-Men franchise’s most enduring character. Directed by James Mangold, it hits cinemas on 3 March 2017.
Starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, and Dafne Keen. We know that the film will contain Mister Sinister, and from the trailer, a much older Wolverine and Charles Xavier. There is little doubt that the film will draw its inspiration from Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s Old Man Logan, a modern classic of the genre.
This is the 9th and probably last time Jackman will tackle the role, in a script by David James Kelly.
