If the hints in the trailer and the details from trade reports recently weren’t enough to convince you that Logan would see the introduction of the mutant known as X-23, the confirmation you’ve been waiting for has arrived.
A new photo from the official Logan Instagram account (with the username “wponx”) has confirmed what we have all assumed for a little while now. Young actress Dafne Keen, who can be seen several times in the Logan trailer, is playing Laura Kinney, the mutant clone of Weapon X, aka Wolverine (Hugh Jackman).

Earlier today we saw the first Logan trailer, which is cut to Johnny Cash‘s cover of NIN’s “Hurt.” Perhaps not a terribly subtle song choice, but it’s pretty damn effective. The fun nod to Mangold’s Walk the Line aside, the song choice also hints the filmmaker is bringing audiences a slightly different offering from the superhero genre, and that was the Mangold and 20th Century Fox’s intent with the trailer.
Below, James Mangold discusses Logan’s timeline and his aspirations for the film.

The first trailer for Logan arrived this morning and it’s safe to say that the look and feel of this movie is unlike any other X-Men movie. Director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman seem intent on bringing the saga of Wolverine to a definitive and dramatic close, complete with a trailer that is as solemn as it is exciting.
We’re still in the early days of the film’s marketing and much about the movie remains under wraps, but there’s still a lot to dig into here. Let’s comb through that trailer shot-by-shot and frame-by-frame and see what we can discover. Speculation, and maybe accidental spoilers, follow.

Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for the past 16 years. To give you a sense of just how long that is, he’s been in that role before the Marvel Cinematic Universe was even a twinkle in Disney’s eye. He’s lasted through two different Batmen, two different Supermen, and three different Spider-Men. Heck, he even managed to stay on when his own franchise rebooted itself with X-Men: First Class.
But everything’s gotta come to an end sometime. Next year brings Jackman’s next and last performance as the mutant superhero, in the Wolverine solo movie Logan. Directed by James Mangold, the new movie sees Wolverine as we’ve never seen him before: as an old and ailing man. The first Logan trailer has just arrived, and you can watch it below.
UPDATE: The Logan red-band trailer is also here, and you can watch it below. Read More »

Wolverine may be an ageless mutant, but Hugh Jackman is not, and as a result, we’ve watched him grow older over his past 16+ years on the big screen. But Logan will be the first movie where Wolverine really gets to show his age. James Mangold has revealed the first look at Jackman’s Old Man Logan in the movie, just ahead of the first trailer’s premiere tomorrow. Get your Old Man Logan first look — and check out a teaser for the trailer — below the jump. Read More »
There have been endless teases for the next film in the standalone Wolverine franchise that has spun off from the primary X-Men film series. Ever since the film’s title was revealed to be Logan, as seen in the first teaser poster, there has been a barrage of behind-the-scenes photos and details giving us plenty of insight into what we can expect from the R-rated comic book sequel this time.
Recent updates included news that Boyd Holbrook would be playing villain Donald Pierce, and considering his comic book history, many fans have assumed that we would also see the mutant-hunting assassins known as Reavers appear as well. Now a new photo confirms their presence in the sequel.

The dam officially broke on the third solo Wolverine movie earlier this month when we learned that Hugh Jackman‘s swan song as the adamantium-clawed mutant superhero wouldn’t even have “Wolverine” in the title. It was going to be called Logan and it was going to be a bit rougher and tougher than your average comic book movie. We learned that the film was going to take place in a dystopian future and that Professor Charles Xavier isn’t doing so hot. And after months of keeping his role a secret, we learned that Narcos star Boyd Holbrook is playing the X-Men villain Donald Pierce.
And the news keeps on coming. Now we have our first look at Stephen Merchant in character as Caliban, an albino mutant with a very interesting superpower.
