First Logan Clip Shows Wolverine In A Showdown

After airing a new trailer during Super Bowl LI, Fox today released the first clip from the upcoming Wolverine movie Logan. The movie is set in the near future, with Logan (Hugh Jackman) taking care of an “ailing” Professor X (Patrick Stewart) in a hideout near the Mexican border.

This clip shows Logan facing off against some bad guys. You probably know how it will end, but it’s still cool to see Logan do his thing. Take a look:

Logan also stars Stephen Merchant, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Boyd Holbrook, and Richard E. Grant. The James Mangold-directed movie hits theaters on March 3, 2017.

Recently, Jackman revealed that Logan takes place in a different universe than the previous films. “It’s not really beholden to timelines and storylines in the other movies,” he said. “Obviously Patrick Stewart was in there so we have some crossover, but it feels very different and very fresh.”

In other news, Mangold recently confirmed that Logan will be rated R. The director said the film was handed an R classification for its “strong brutal violence and language throughout, and for brief nudity.” Jackman agreed to a paycut so the film could receive the restricted rating.
