Wolverine 3 (aka Logan) has done a masterful job of promoting itself through social media means, with director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman leading the charge with a steady burst of Twitter image reveals.
Seeing ominous, dramatic and sometimes violent imagery of Logan frame by frame has created a stylized atmosphere around Mangold Rated-R superhero spaghetti western. Earlier today, Mangold shared the first frame from the new Logan trailer, now Jackman is sharing the last - a nice Easter egg that Marvel Comics fans will geek over:
Right there we have Jackman's Wolverine cruising along with Laura Kinney, aka X-23, the Marvel Comics fan-favorite who now holds the mantle of Wolverine officially, and will be played in Logan by young actress Dafne Keen.
SYNOPSIS: Logan takes place in a somewhat distant future, where mutant births have become extremely rare. The defenders of mutant kind, the X-Men, are long gone, and the only remains of them are an old and struggling Charles Xavier and a weary Logan. Logan's vaunted healing factor has slowed, and at times doesn't seem to work at all. When a young mutant needs his help, Logan has to unsheathe his claws once more. His job isn't over yet.
