The New Trailer for the Third Wolverine Movie Has Me Wondering Why They’re Doing Old Man Logan

I have no idea what FOX plans to do with the X-Men franchise. The latest film, Apocalypse, landed with a big old dud this past summer. For some reason, they’ve been sticking to the same fractured and altered continuity all these years, including in their spin-off films. So what does the new film, Logan, have to do with any of that?

So despite everything that has come before, they’re now going to make a movie set in the future where older and more grizzled versions of Wolverine and Professor X team up to save a little girl from the Reavers? I’m sure they’ll try to get a good movie out of that, and perhaps they’ll succeed, but now that I’m actually watching the trailer, I think it’s a weird choice.

The trailer is alright. The film looks gritty enough. And that Johnny Cash cover is one of my favorite songs of all time, and definitely fits the theme. But I dunno. I’m just not sure where they’re going with this…

  1. Clearly, they’re going with the introduction of X-23, so she can take over the mantle of the Wolverine. And that’s awesome.

    Anyway, this is a great trailer, and actually has me interested in the movie.
