Sixteen years after he first assumed the role, looks like Hugh Jackman’s time as Wolverine may be at it’s end. After announcing last year that he’ll play the part one last time, and hinting that the story may be based loosely based on Old Man Logan, we finally get the trailer to prove it.The 90 second preview features a much older Wolverine protecting a young girl, who has been confirmed to be his female clone, also known as X-23. The trailer is also beautifully backed by Johnny Cash’s cover of Hurt, which fits beautifully in contrast with the fast paced action.
The movie stars Jackman as the iconic Wolverine, Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier, Boyd Holbrook as Donald Pierce, Stephen Merchant as Caliban, and Sienna Novikov as Laura. Watch the trailer and read the official synopsis below.
Set in the future of 2024, Logan and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men when a corporation led by Nathaniel Essex is destroying the world leaving it to destruction, with Logan’s healing abilities slowly fading away and Xavier’s Alzheimer’s forcing him to forget. Logan must defeat Nathaniel Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine.
