Third Wolverine Movie Receives Title; Leaked Script Reveals Plot Details
James Mangold took it to Twitter to reveal the title of Hugh Jackman's final solo Wolverine movie outing next year, followed by a slew of photo tweets revealing our favorite X-Man's status quo in the film.
Officially titled as "Logan," Mangold's reveal post entails a poster showing a child's hand holding Wolverine's scarred arm and claws. It has been speculated hours after the tweet that the hand belongs to the female Wolverine clone, X-23.
In addition, Mangold's next tweet showed a photo of the film's screenplay, detailing what may be Logan's state in the movie.
"Now might be a good time to talk about the 'fights' described in the next 100 or so pages. Basically, if you're on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying, CG fuckathon, this ain't your movie," he writes.
"In this flick, people will get hurt or killed when shit falls on them. They will get just as hurt or just as killed if they get hit with something big and heavy like, say, a car. Should anyone in our story have the misfortune to fall off a roof or out a window, they won't bounce. They will die"
It was also announced that Logan won't be the same mutant we knew once we head over to the theater next year. His abilities have diminished, and with his healing factor losing its effectivity, he had begun resorting to alcohol to ease the chronic pain he receives daily.
Announced back in 2015, "Logan" is based on the popular comic book miniseries "Old Man Logan." Set in an alternate future of the Marvel timeline, Wolverine is living a solitary life as an old man, until a dangerous job pulls him on an unlikely quest to traverse what's left in New America, battling Hulk-like mutants and metahumans along the way.
Rated R by the MPAA, "Logan" is slated for a March 3, 2017 release.
