The First Logan Trailer Is Brutal And Unlike Anything In The X-Men Universe

Wolverine is officially too old for this shit

Wolverine is officially too old for this shit in the first trailer for Logan, the third and final installment of the Wolverine film franchise. In it, a gruff and grizzled Logan (Hugh Jackman) has seemingly given up the superhero lifestyle for good in favor of something more simple. Years of playing the hero have taken a toll on the razor-clawed former X-Man, and he’s got the scars and lines to prove it.

“Charles, the world is not the same as it was,” he tells Professor X (Patrick Stewart), now old as well. “Mutants — they’re gone now.” That is, until they come across a young girl with remarkable gifts who’s being hunted by some very bad men. And just like that, Logan comes out of retirement for one last wild, R-rated ride. We don’t know what’s making us more emotional: watching Logan hold her tiny hand or listening to Johnny Cash’s cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt.”

Given the ending of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Logan is definitely taking a different approach than the beloved comic that inspired it. Mark Millar’s Old Man Logan is set in an alternate future where supervillains rule the world. Wolverine, retired with a wife and kids, agrees to help Hawkeye — yes, that Hawkeye — in one last mission. Everything goes horribly wrong and a wild adventure ensues. In Logan, which looks more like a Western than a comic-book movie, Wolverine teams up with Professor X, which already looks more compelling.

Logan hits theaters March 3, 2017.
