And it is every bit worth the excruciatingly long wait!
We see Logan as an old man who has sworn off the use of his adamantium claws for violence, after the events of Days Of Future Past. Patrick Stewart reprises his role as Professor Charles Xavier, and introduces Logan to Laura Kinney (Dafne Keen), who X-Men aficionados recognise as X-23, the successor of Wolverine.
The trailer, with Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” playing ominously in the background, feels bleak and despondent, and every frame reverberates with the loss in regenerative abilities, and the will to fight, that has caught up with Logan. And yet there is electricity, a sense of foreboding, with a mysterious young girl, “just like” Wolverine, holding out promise for mutants.
And did we spot….Deadpool??
Watch the trailer and thank us later!
