20th Century Fox (via Hugh Jackman‘s Twitter) has revealed a trailer tease for the upcoming third Wolverine film, simply titled Logan. The Wolverine director James Mangold is back behind the camera for Hugh Jackman’s final turn as the character. Check out the Logan trailer tease below, and stay tuned for the full trailer tomorrow!
Starring Hugh Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart, Logan is coming to theaters on March 3, 2017. The new film will mark the ninth time that Hugh Jackman has played the character on the big screen. Mangold is directing from a script by David James Kelly.
Mister Sinister and his “Essex Corp” were previously said to be the villain(s) of the film, with rumors pointing toward Richard E. Grant playing the villain, though it remains unconfirmed. We know that the primary villains for the film will include both The Reavers, lead by Boyd Holbrook’s Donald Pierce, as well as Wolverine’s favorite group, Weapon X. It stands to reason that Sinister’s role in the film will be tied to the creation of X-23, the young female clone of Wolverine also along for the film’s road trip, which makes the post-credit scene for X-Men: Apocalypse finally make some sense.
The cast for Logan also includes Stephen Merchant, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez.
