Expectations are only getting higher and higher for the final ‘X-Men’ movie for Hugh Jackman, this March’s ‘Logan,’ and the man is helping fuel the hype train with his own campaign by recently releasing another new image of himself on set on his Twitter account, this time in character standing just behind a black car, in a rumpled suit, looking off-screen at what we can only assume is a menacing figure. He is still Wolverine, but there is grey in his hair and we know it is the end of the line for our favorite mutant. Check out the Tweet for yourself below:

Aside from the new images released by Jackman, apparently there is a new trailer on its way, which was also announced by way of Twitter, you can check out that Tweet just below. Rumor has it that the new ‘Logan’ trailer is going to be coming out around the same time as ‘XXX: The Return of Xander Cage’ hits theaters, potentially on January 16, 2017, as the studio seems to think both films will be pulling from similar audiences (which, as an ‘X-Men’ fan, I find a little insulting, but ah well.) Regardless it means we will be getting a new 90-second ‘Logan’ trailer mid-January and if it is anywhere near as cool as the first one, I will be very pleased, especially if they find another amazing song to put it to (though they would be hard pressed to find anything that worked as well as Johnny Cash’s version of ‘Hurt’).
Next #Logan trailer – word from Fox Showcase events (via @splatterwelt) is w/c Jan 16. Will post on site when trailer is IN THE PIPELINE. pic.twitter.com/cswDLPQrAc — TrailerTrack (@trailertrack) December 26, 2016
What are your thoughts on ‘Logan’ now that the campaign appears to be getting into full swing and the release date grows ever closer? Do you think it will be a fitting send off for Hugh Jackman’s version of Wolverine? Feel free to share your opinions in the comments below!
Here’s the film’s synopsis:
Logan takes place in the year 2024, where mutant births have become extremely rare. The defenders of mutant kind, the X-Men, are long gone, and the only remains of them are an old and struggling Charles Xavier and a weary Logan. Logan’s vaunted healing factor has slowed, and at times doesn’t seem to work at all. When a young mutant needs his help, Logan has to unsheathe his claws once more. His job isn’t over yet.
