As we’re all aware by now, Logan is Hugh Jackman‘s very last film as Wolverine — a role he’s been playing for a decade and a half now, starting with 2000’s X-Men. That fact adds an extra layer of poignancy to what already looks like a very bittersweet film, which in turn should make this movie even more of a must-see for fans. So the 20th Century Fox marketing team is leaning into it, hard, with a new Logan poster and a new Logan poster that literally show the sun setting on Hugh Jackman’s time as Wolverine. Check ’em out below. 

Jackman shared the new Logan poster on Twitter. It’s got a real “cowboy riding off into the sunset” feel to it, as befits the film’s western vibe. Except of course that Wolverine seems to be walking away from the sunset, not into it. Symbolism? Or just a better way to show off the leading man?

The new Logan photo also prominently features a sunset, though it seems to be from a bit later in the evening.

Logan picks up with a much older Wolverine. His X-Men days are behind him and his powers are in decline, which means he’s constantly in pain. Also struggling is Professor X (Patrick Stewart), who is under Logan’s care. They’re called back into action when they meet Laura (Dafne Keen), a young mutant who needs their help.

I got to see the entire first act of Logan at Fox’s recent footage showcase event in New York, and while I’m not allowed to say too much about it yet, I was allowed to tweet about it at the time.

And here’s what a few other folks had to say about it.

I should have much more to say about Logan in the not-too-distant future, and I expect a trailer will probably come along pretty soon as well. Watch this space. Logan is out March 3, 2017.
