Fox has released a new poster for director James Mangold‘s Logan, and you will see Wolverine is running away from something with Dafne Keen’s young mutant character Laura Kinney, a.k.a. X-23.
Logan teams up with Charles Xavier, and it seems like they will embark on a journey to protect this young mutant from villains who want to get their hands on her. Certain elements of the plot were previously explained:
Logan takes place in the year 2024…Old Man Logan is in full effect. Logan looks bad, and drinks a lot. For work, he drives a 2024 Chrysler 300 limo that looks modified in the front to look more futuristic. He’s sick, his powers are fading, and he heals much more slowly — and sometimes not at all.
In 2024, mutant births are severely in decline, and people aren’t sure why. We find out about a government-type operation called “Transigen” that is turning mutant children into killing machines. Logan ends up mentoring the girl, who has two claws instead of his three.
The movie will be released in theaters on March 3, 2017. You can watch the trailer here.
