Here’s the first details on Hugh Jackman’s last Wolverine movie, ‘Logan’

Director James Mangold and actor Hugh Jackman have just revealed new information about the upcoming third (and final) Wolverine film, including its title – Logan. But some other information has us worried about the fate of our clawed friend.

Jackman has been playing Wolverine for seventeen years, so we can't be too sad that the newly named Logan, debuting March 3, 2017, will be his last time playing the character. Jackman posted a photo of the first poster in the wild this morning…

And then Mangold tweeted the actual poster.

Oh god, my heart. Mangold also tweeted a look at the second page of the film's script which doesn't give away a lot of dialogue but a lot of what we can expect from Logan.

“Now might be a good time to talk about the 'fights' described in the next 100 or so pages. Basically, if you're on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying, CG fuckathon, this ain't your movie,” he writes. “In this flick, people will get hurt or killed when shit falls on them. They will get just as hurt or just as killed if they get hit with something big and heavy like, say, a car. Should anyone in our story have the misfortune to fall off a roof or out a window, they won't bounce. They will die.”

Ok, point taken. This film will be more down to Earth than recent superhero outings. But then he goes on, “As for our hero, well, he's older now and it's clear his abilities aren't what they once were. He's fading on the inside and his diminished healing factor keeps him in a constant state of chronic pain – hence booze as a painkiller. So by all means, go ahead and worry about him.”

Uh oh. While I'm sure Fox isn't ready to let go of the Wolverine IP anytime soon, with Jackman done could we see his death in this film? They could certainly use a “death” as a way to start over with a new actor in the role down the line.

Ok, let's try not to think about that for a while. How about we lighten the mood? Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds chimed in on the new poster.
