The problem with living longer than everyone else is the solemn loneliness that one opens themselves up to and no one is more familiar with this unfortunate aspect of semi-immortality than Wolverine.
Logan has managed to survive this long thanks to his potent healing factor, but that also means his friends and family tend to leave him behind as they head into the afterlife. A new image from the upcoming James Mangold directed Logan encapsulates that theme, showing Logan (played by Hugh Jackman) standing in the middle of a field, with the sky and the wind being his only accompaniment.
You can view the new image above.
Logan takes place in the year 2024, 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.
Logan stars Hugh Jackman (Logan), Boyd Holbrook (Donald Pierce), Patrick Stewart (Charles Xavier), Dafne Keen (Laura Kinney/X-23), Doris Morgado (Maria), Stephen Merchant (Caliban), Elizabeth Rodriguez (Gabriela), and Richard E. Grant (Dr. Zander Rice). James Mangold is directing and helped on the screenplay along with Scott Frank and Michael Green.
