Hugh Jackman returns (one last time) as the infamous mutant “Wolverine” as 20th Century Fox releases the first trailer for the upcoming superhero movie Logan. View trailer below.
Set in 2024, one year after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past, the atmosphere isn’t in favor for the mutants and there is an evident decline in the mutant population, and those who are still existing are unable to use or maximize their powers anymore. The abilities of Professor X that greatly helped and guided the mutants is also destabilized and this thing leads to the possible depression of Logan who seems to be lost in an oblivious state of uselessness after swearing he will not use his claws to bloody purposes after his healing factors are also weakened. Meanwhile, an evil powerful organization had been amid upon the impending topple of the premium line-up of good and trustworthy mutants, project Transigen arises, where evil doctors and scientists turn kid mutants into killing machines. Logan and Professor X will have to rise above their pain and weaknesses to be able to defeat the brains behind the evil Transigen project.
While I do like the X-Men movies and their comics (I’ve only read some of them), I’ve never been a huge fan of the Wolverine movies. Of course, I do like Hugh Jackman as an actor as he always is great as Logan (aka Wolverine), but the previous two solo movies of his were my least favorite of the X-Men movies (i.e. X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Wolverine). I don’t know. Well, of course, Origins was okay, but the ending was bland (the whole Deadpool thing) and Wolverine was soooooo boring. Personally, I think the X-Men movies are better when its a group / team, not a solo character-ish movie. As for this trailer for Logan, it looks good (I like that Patrick Stewart is in it) but, given with what I just said, I still have my doubts, even though I know a lot of Marvel comic fans like the whole “Old Man Logan” storyline. However, it will be interesting to see as its suppose to be Hugh Jackman’s final appearance in the X-Men movies as Wolverine (but you never know…he could return again). So….who knows. I’ll definitely go and see Logan, but I just can’t shake my inherit feelings about another solo mutant movie.
Logan slashes its way into theaters next year on March 3rd, 2017
