All good things—and mutants—come to an end.
Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine has survived through the full X-Men movie series and now, after 16 years, he’s whipping out his claws one last time for Logan. And in the third and final Wolverine movie, he’s losing his self-healing powers—but he’s found his successor.
Set in 2024, Logan brings Wolverine back as a lone survivor in a time when mutants are all gone or in hiding, hunted by government assassins. Set to Johnny Cash’s cover of “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails (director James Mangold is also behind the Cash biopic Walk the Line), the first trailer for the movie shows a scarred Logan living in a wasteland, isolated from the rest of the world.
But in such a dire time, there’s still hope: Wolverine and a very sickly Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) must come together to protect Laura (Sienna Novikov), a young girl with powers very similar to Logan’s, from the cyborg Reavers. Audiences will find out whether Laura is indeed X-23—a clone of Wolverine—on March 3, 2017.
