The New film ‘Logan’ and Wolverine’s final film is getting closer to release and is ramping up the excitement with more clues in the form of new images like the ones released today. Looking at these new images they continue make us dig the darker direction in James Mangold’s latest film.
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Empire online released exclusively 4 new images that will appear in their magazine which hits stands on Thursday. They spoke with Hugh Jackman and James Mangold about the upcoming film –
“It’s a darker version of Little Miss Sunshine, with the three of us on the road,” Jackman told Empire, chuckling. “Slightly more violence!”
“The idea of a road picture with Logan, Laura and Xavier in an average car was a driving image for me,” says Mangold, pun quite possibly intended. “Taking heroes and putting them in normalcy — and nothing makes them more normal than to cram them into a car and make them have to deal with each other — that seemed the ultimate contradiction of what tentpole movies tend to do.”
The baddest part of the pictures is a closer look at X-23 played by Dafne Keen with her claws out and ready to kill.
The film hits theaters in March.
