This third Wolverine film is the end of a terrific fun at the character by actor Hugh Jackman who is playing him one final time. He has been Wolverine in every X-Men related film property since they started and I thought that he was fantastic in the role. The film opens in March of next year but the first trailer has been released and you can check it out below.
Set in 2024, Logan and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men at the hands of a corporation led by Nathaniel Essex. With Logan’s healing abilities slowly fading and Xavier’s Alzheimer’s hampering his memory, Logan must defeat Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve felt there were a few issues here and there with the Wolverine solo films, I did still enjoy them and am saddened to know this is our last with Jackman because he did a great job. My guess is that they are using some of the stuff in the Old Man Logan stories which is fine but I didn’t read any of that stuff so I’ve a limited background in the premise. There has been talk that Mr. Sinister is going to be the big bad but his name doesn’t appear yet in the Wikipedia entry where I pull some casting from so who knows. Perhaps they are keeping this a secret until the film release date is closer. This film is going to be rated “R” like this past year’s “Deadpool” and I think that is a perfect fit for such a finale. There seems to be a lot of action which is a good thing since that is what we expect of such films. What did you think about the trailer? Let me know in the comments section below.
