News broke yesterday that Wolverine 3 would actually be titled, Logan. A promotional poster was found in New York City announcing the news ahead of New York Comic Con. The film’s title is completely different and unique, and this totally aligns itself with what both Jackman and the film’s director, James Mangold, have been saying from day one.
Upon releasing the poster, new details surfaced and the film, first reported by The Wrap. The details contain spoilers.
We’ve known for a while now that the film would be set in the future, and The Wrap reveals that the story takes place in 2024. The film is darker than all of the previousWolverine and X-Men movies, and Logan’s powers are fading, so he’s sick and his healing powers are barely even working. He now works as limousine driver, which explains those old set pictures of Jackman driving a bullet-ridden limo.
The report also reveals that Patrick Stewart’s Professor X is much older and not well. Logan takes care of him with the help of Caliban, who will be played by Stephen Merchant (The Office, Hello Ladies). As for the mysterious little girl from the film’s poster (seen above), the report reveals the following:
“We learned further details about the from an insider who said that the girl in the poster is a young mutant. In 2024, mutant births are severely in decline, and people aren’t sure why. We find out about a government-type operation called “Transigen” that is turning mutant children into killing machines. Logan ends up mentoring the girl, who has two claws instead of his three.”
