Logan hits theaters next year, but we’ll get our first look at Hugh Jackman’s final appearance as Wolverine when its debut trailer premieres tomorrow. Jackman tweeted a teaser video for the trailer, while director James Mangold shared a photo of “Old Man” Wolverine.
“Nature made me a freak, man made me a weapon, and God made it last too long,” Jackman says in the video. It features someone who looks like Wolverine standing in a field. We’ll report back when the full trailer releases.
The picture, on the other hand, gives us a decent look at what Jackman will look like in the upcoming movie. He’s more bearded, scarred, and ragged than in previous movies. This isn’t the first image Mangold has released of the movie, sharing photographs of both Caliban and Professor X, who looks strikingly different. You can see the older Logan in the image below.
Logan stars Jackman, Patrick Stewart (X-Men), Stephen Merchant (Portal 2), Doris Morgado (2 Guns), Elizabeth Rodriguez (The Drop), Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl), and Richard E. Grant (Dracula). Helmed by Mangold, the screenplay is written by relative newcomer David James Kelly and Michael Green, who wrote the script for 2011’s Green Lantern.
Logan began production back in May, which is also when producer Simon Kinberg confirmed the movie’s R-rating.
“It’s a very radical, bold, different Wolverine than you’ve ever seen in any of these [other] movies,” Kinberg said. “It takes place in the future, and … it is an R-rated movie. It’s violent, it’s kind of like a western in its tone. It’s just a very cool, different film.”
The movie’s villain is also confirmed. Mister Sinister will play the antagonistic role in Logan, but no actor has been announced. We’ll keep you updated as more information is revealed.
