'Wolverine' Is "Logan"

Sneak Peek more new footage, plus images from director James Mangold's $127 million budgeted, R-rated feature "Logan", starring Hugh Jackman in his final appearance as the super-powered mutant 'Logan', set in the year 2029, adapting Marvel Comics' "Old Man Logan" storyline, co-starring Parick Stewart and Dafne Keen:

"...years after 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', the last of the 'merry mutants', including an aging 'Logan' aka 'Wolverine', whose healing factor is starting to fail...

"...and 'Charles Xavier' aka 'Professor X',  protect a young girl named 'Laura' who is being hunted by sinister forces.

"Wolverine: Old Man Logan" (2008), the eight-issue story from writer Mark Millar ("Kick-Ass) and illustrator Steve McNiven, ran through "Wolverine" #66–#72 and ending in "Wolverine Giant-Size Old Man Logan" (Sept 2009), set in an alternate universe designated as 'Earth-807128'.

Set fifty years into the future, it uses a similar premise to another Millar book, "Wanted", in which the world's super-villains band together to finally destroy all superheroes.

A new volume of "Old Man Logan" debuted in the "Secret Wars" (2015) storyline, written by Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by Andrea Sorrentino, followed by an ongoing series January 2016, written by Jeff Lemire.
