The second trailer for Hugh Jackman’s third entry in the Wolverine franchise, Logan, has arrived.
The first trailer for the movie arrived in October and confirmed it will feature a much older Logan and Professor Xavier, set in a barren America where mutants have all but become extinct. Logan, directed by James Mangold, is based on Mark Millar’s eight-issue “Old Man Logan” arc from the ongoing Wolverine series.
In March 2015, Jackman tweeted that he would be playing Wolverine one last time in the movie. The actor reaffirmed he was stepping away from the character after Logan was released. In an interview with Variety, however, Jackman was asked if he’d don the metal claws again to appear alongside Ryan Reynolds in a Deadpool movie. Jackman admitted it would be a tough decision because he felt pretty “danced out” with the character, but he could see how it would be “the perfect fit.”
“I’m hesitating, because I could totally see how that’s the perfect fit,” Jackman said. “But the timing may be wrong. I’m at the point where I’m finishing up. In terms of a theory, it’s a great idea.”
On Jan. 13, Jackman posted a photo on Instagram confirming the synopsis for the film, but it didn’t provide any additional details. Mangold has been using Instagram to post stills from the film that do contain clues about what may occur in the movie. The account, “wponx,” refers to the government genetic research project that turns Logan into Wolverine in the comics.
Logan will be released on March 3, 2017.
