Set for a release on March 1st, Logan is the latest and last(?) film in the standalone Wolverine movies. Set in the near future, Logan sees an aging Wolverine and Professor X working together to protect a young female clone of Wolverine – aka X-23 from the Marvel comic of the same name – from an evil organization led by Nathanial Essex.
Fox have released a second “clip” from the film, this one seemingly found-footage of X-23 undergoing a medical procedure to give her those Wolverine-esque claws…
Set in the future of 2024, Logan and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men when a corporation lead by Nathaniel Essex is destroying the world leaving it to destruction, with Logan’s healing abilities slowly fading away and Xavier’s Alzheimer’s forcing him to forget. Logan must defeat Nathaniel Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine.
Logan once again stars Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine (this time more aged and haggard a la the Old Man Logan comicsverse), Patrick Stewart as Professor X, Dafne Keen as X-23, Richard E. Grant as Dr. Zander Rice, Stephen Merchant, Boyd Holbrook, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Doris Morgado and Eriq La Salle.
