On Wednesday, The Wolverine director James Mangold confirmed on Twitter that the next movie in the solo saga would be titled Logan.
Not only will this be the final Wolverine solo film, but also potentially the final appearance of Hugh Jackman as the titular character. We didn’t learn much from Mangold’s tweets, which unveiled the first poster and the second page of the script, but TheWrap shared some details about the film shortly after the reveal.
Spoiler alert: Some of these details could be considered spoilers.
According to TheWrap, Logan will take place in the year 2024.
As expected, the movie will feature the “Old Man Logan” character that Marvel fans have become familiar with in the comics universe. Logan will be darker than any Wolverine or X-Men movie that came before it, with Logan himself in terrible condition as his healing powers have begun to fade.
In the movie, we’ll see Logan drink, curse and drive around in a 2024 Chrysler 300 limousine. And if anyone was concerned about the movie sticking with an R rating, there’s a F-bomb on the second page of the script.
In addition to these story details, TheWrap also learned from an insider that the young girl holding Logan’s hand in the poster is another mutant. Apparently, mutant births have dropped off considerably in 2024, but it’s unclear why. As the movie progresses, we discover that a shady organization called Transigen is “turning mutant children into killing machines,” and it might be up to Logan to stop them.
Logan ends up becoming the mutant girl’s mentor. She has two claws instead of three, which leads us to believe she is X-23, a character who has actually taken over for Wolverine in the Marvel comics.
Logan hits theaters on March 3rd, 2017.
