Logan’s Final Trailer Shows the Moment We’ve All Been Waiting For
Jan 19, 2017
The anticipation for Logan, incorporating loose elements the Old Man Logan storyline, has grown steadily since the first trailer and now we get to see the moment we’ve all been waiting for: when the young mutant shown throughout the trailers finally unleashes her claws and fights by Logan’s side.
The young mutant, Laura Kinney, is a female clone of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. Throughout the trailer, it’s clear that Logan and Professor X are at the end of their ropes physically and emotionally: we don’t know exactly what happened to this world, but it is not the one we’re used to and it’s definitely not in great shape.
Laura—or, X-23 as we’re going to call her now—is by far the star of the trailer. From her small stature to her incredible fighting ability, she makes the perfect companion to the battle-weary Logan.
The trailer also has a fun meta moment where Logan finds an Uncanny X-Men comic and exclaims she must be a fan. Since Free Comic Book Day is all about comics, we’re thrilled to see some of the original source material called out in the trailer for what we anticipate to be one of the most thrilling X-Men films yet.
Logan hits theaters on March 3rd, but you can still enjoy Wolverine and X-23 in the comics. Here are some available at your local comic shops now.
WOLVERINE OLD MAN LOGAN
(W) Mark Millar
(A/CA) Steve McNiven
Millar. McNiven. Wolverine. It doesn't get any better than this. The only way writer Mark Millar (Wanted, Kick-Ass) could top his all-time classic Wolverine tale "Enemy of the State" was to take it to the future -his Civil War brother in arms, Steve McNiven, handling the art duties! Fusing the dystopian super-hero elements of the X-Men's "Days of Future Past," the wild and wooly futurescapes of Mad Max, and the tragic pathos of Clint Eastwood's archetypal Western heroes, Millar's tale finds Wolverine at a crossroads with who he really wants to be and who he really is. Collecting WOLVERINE #66-72 and WOLVERINE GIANT-SIZE OLD MAN LOGAN.
