The Wolverilogy concludes in 2017, marking seventeen years of Hugh Jackman as the be-clawed Logan. Let’s take a peep at this first trailer, shall we?
If the 2009 movie was a pile of crunchwrap supremes falling off someone’s tray onto the floor below, creating a pile of nebulous ingredients and ice cold garbage lettuce, then 2013’s The Wolverine was a reasonably prepared Mexican Pizza, loaded with plenty of toppings and fills you up nicely. Based on this paced, thoughtful trailer, that makes Logan, perhaps, an actual burrito from a taqueria.
What I’m slowly and unhelpfully trying to convey is that Logan APPEARS to be a satisfying look at the character that both wraps up Jackman’s role and possibly passed the Wolverine mantle off to X-23.
We also learn mutants are nearly done-zo, Xavier is alive but barely hanging on and the Reavers / Transigen folks are clearly out for a new living weapon. Given the craziness of the main X-Movies, it’s pretty nice to see something so “low-ish stakes” and zoomed in a bit more on a duo or trio of heroes instead of a massive team.
I mostly enjoyed The Wolverine so I can’t imagine not liking this more!
