Wolverine Takes a Good, Hard Look in the Mirror in New ‘Logan’ Photo
It’s been a few days or so since we’ve gotten a fresh sneak peek at Logan, so we’re about due for a new photo, don’t you think? Right on cue, director James Mangold has shared another image from the upcoming Wolverine sequel, this time featuring Hugh Jackman’s titular hero, his crazy ripped abs and a very unpleasant exchange with a mirror. It seems like “Old Man” is definitely the best way to describe this iteration of Logan.
I think we can all identify with the look on Hugh Jackman’s face as he confronts his image in the mirror, right? Someone definitely had a long night:
It’s the latest in Mangold’s series of professional photos that the director took himself while filming Jackman’s final bow as Wolverine. As you can see, those wounds and battle scars reiterate something we learned not long ago about Logan’s status in the upcoming sequel: He’s not really healing like he used to. He’s not the only one who’s worse for wear, either, as Patrick Stewart’s Professor X appears to be on the decline and looks far older than we’ve ever seen before.
They’re joined by newcomer Dafne Keen, who plays a character named Laura, recently confirmed to be X-23 — a female clone of Wolverine with ties to the film’s villains. Narcos star Boyd Holbrook plays Pierce (as in Donald Pierce), a former Hellfire Club member who goes on to form the Reavers (another recent pic featured one of them). Richard E. Grant plays a mysterious mad scientist-type (rumored to be Mister Sinister), and Stephen Merchant plays the mutant Caliban.
Logan hits theaters on March 3, 2017.
