This isn’t the Wolverine you remember from the X-Men movies.
On Thursday, 20th Century Fox shared the first trailer for Logan, the ninth X-Men movie and the third (and final) movie in the Wolverine solo movie trilogy. As previous reports suggested, the movie will have a much darker vibe than the previous entries in the X-Men canon, as mutants have been all but eradicated.
Not many of the superpowered teammates from the previous movies will appear in Logan, but we will get to see Patrick Stewart’s Professor X join Wolverine on his journey. We’ll also likely meet X-23, who has since taken over for Wolverine in the comic books, and might play a part in future X-Men movies:
You can read Fox’s official synopsis for the movie below:
“In 2024, mutant births are severely in decline, and people aren’t sure why. A government-type operation is turning mutant children into killing machines. From this, Logan emerges as a mentor to a mutant girl, who has two claws instead of his three.”
