Hugh Jackman announced this morning on his twitter account that the third Wolverine film will be titled Logan. The title is a play on the title of the comic book storyline Old Man Logan, which the film is based on. It seems like simpler titles for comic book movies is going to become a trend going forward.
Director James Mangold also shared a picture of the second page from the script and the films official poster via Twitter.
The script has Wolverine taking on a group of ‘bangers’ right from the start. The action described sounds like its going to be raw, brutal, and violent. This more realistic take on the film’s fight scenes will serve as a nice change of pace from the current blockbusters being produced by Marvel Studios. The language on this page combined with the action described most certainly guarantees an R-rating making it the second R-rated superhero film produced by 20th Century Fox.
Logan hits theaters March 3, 2017.
