Fans are gearing up for the release of the (alleged) final outing for Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of X-Man Wolverine in ‘Logan,’ hitting theaters next month. As per business as usual, the marketing machine at 20th Century Fox is hitting its stride prior to the film’s release, and today we have a new clip that highlights the youngest featured member of the film’s cast.
As you likely know by now, the film is set in a potentially alternate future from the other recent X-films, where mutants have become all-but-extinct and ol’ Wolvy is taking care of a dying Professor X. His world gets flipped-turned-upside-down when he runs across a mutant that is “very much like him” – the young X-23, bred from the same Project X government program that he was.
Take a peek at the clip, courtesy of ‘Logan’ director James Mangold on his Twitter account:

It’s an interesting clip, showing quick hits of intriguing storyline points such as all the other children that are apparently in the current batch of Weapon X experimentation (at least 23, if X-23’s designation is to make any sense at all) and the phenomenally quick healing factor of the young woman with claws.
‘Logan’ opens in US cinemas on March 3, 2017.
