Earlier today, we showed you a new photo of Hugh Jackman as an Old Man in his final Wolverine movie entitled Logan, along with a rumor that claimed the first trailer will arrive tomorrow. It turns out that rumor is true, with Hugh Jackman debuting a brief trailer preview, which comes ahead of the first full trailer tomorrow. While it hasn't been confirmed exactly when the full trailer will arrive, the rumor from earlier today stated that the footage will likely arrive at 9 AM ET/6 AM PT.
The trailer preview that Hugh Jackman unleashed on Twitter doesn't give us much, with a glimpse at his iconic Wolverine character from afar. This six-second video also features Logan delivering a brief message, stating "Nature made me a freak, man made me a weapon, and God made it last too long." We also know that the trailer was recently classified by the British Board of Film Classification, with the footage clocking in at one minute and 46 seconds long.
The Old Man Logan photo is seemingly the last in a series of images that debuted online through either director James Mangold, star Hugh Jackman or the movie's official Instagram account. We have also seen Stephen Merchant's Caliban, Patrick Stewart's Professor X and one of the Reavers named Danny Rhodes, played by David Kallaway. There have also been a slew of cryptic images featuring various locations around El Paso, Texas, and what is believed to be a glimpse at the comic book character Arcade. There have been a number of recent plot rumors surfacing, which will hopefully be confirmed or at least addressed with this first trailer.
One of the most prominent rumors includes the involvement of an iconic mutant named X-23. Many believe that it's X-23's hand that Logan is seen clasping in the first official poster that debuted earlier this month, and we also saw images of a young girl on the set with Hugh Jackman during production. While the young girl's character was never confirmed, many believe it was X-23, which may tie in to the post-credit sequence of X-Men: Apocalypse, where a mysterious character is seen grabbing a vial of blood belonging to Wolverine. It is believed that this blood may be used to create X-23, who, in the comics, is a clone of Logan himself.
The cast also includes Boyd Holbrook as the villainous Donald Pierce, along with Richard E. Grant and Eriq La Salle in unspecified roles. James Mangold directs from a script by David James Kelly and Michael Green, with 20th Century Fox setting a March 3, 2017 release date. Take a look at this brief trailer preview, and check back tomorrow for the full Logan trailer tomorrow.
