Wolverine is a 'Hurt' old man in first trailer for 'Logan'
Wolverine is back. Except he's not really Wolverine anymore.
Hugh Jackman is taking his clawed X-Men character out for a third solo movie in Logan, which released its first trailer on Thursday. The movie doesn't look or feel like the other shiny, sleek X-Men movies: It's a dusty, depressing and tired, featuring both Wolverine and Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) at their lowest points (and worst facial hair).
That apocalyptic look is based on a famous comics series called Old Man Logan, which takes place on a different, post-apocalyptic world. Villains are in power, heroes are in hiding, and Logan is chronically grieved and depressed. And it seems some of that story will come out in the movie, as Logan says to Xavier, “Charles, the world is not the same as it was. Mutants — they’re gone now.”
Unlike other superhero trailers that go for fun pop music or classic rock, Logan's trailer is scored by Johnny Cash's Hurt. Too on the nose? Maybe. Effective? Absolutely.
Logan opens March 3, 2017.
