    The New Wolverine Movie Is Called “Logan” And Here’s What We Know So Far

    We finally have a title, poster, and even a peek at the script!

    The director of the next Wolverine movie, James Mangold, released a poster which reveals the title and release date of the third, and final, Wolvie film: LOGAN.

    And if you missed it, Wolverine himself (Hugh Jackman) posted this version of the image, with the caption "LOGAN".


    While details of the film have been pretty few and far between, here's everything we know, and what it could mean for the upcoming movie.

    BASED ON ALL THAT, it's safe to assume this is what we're looking at:

    CONSIDERING WE ALSO KNOW that Logan will be Hugh Jackman's FINAL Wolverine film, there's a more-than-likely chance this movie could introduce the character of X-23.

    You can read more about X-23 here but long story short, she's a clone of Wolverine's who is raised in captivity and trained as a weapon (sound familiar???). What better way to cap off Jackman's career as Wolverine than to pass on the mantle to a new generation. That also means there's potential for crossovers with the Deadpool sequel, future X-Men films, and so on and so forth. Forward thinking! Everything is a franchise!

    (There are other characters the hand could belong to, but I'm just making the most obvious logical jump, don't @ me, I'm too messy for drama.)

    Mangold also posted a snippet of the script on Twitter, which includes the phrase "CG fuckathon". It's pretty great.

    Recently, Jackman stated that the film will be "very different in tone and hopefully to anything we've done", and on the back of Deadpool's massive box office success, Logan will be targeting that sweet, bloody R-rating.

    Logan also has ties (aka is a VERY loose adaptation of) the graphic novel Old Man Logan, which is set in the future. And Logan is... an old man.

    Take into consideration this snippet from Mangold's tweet:

    "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."

    Relatable AF.

    So there you go, that's what we know so far!
