Well this is a nice surprise. The X-Men film series has usually hovered around ‘OK’, sometimes breaching into ‘Good’. But this first look at Logan has got us really excited.
Obviously it’s cheating to use Johnny Cash – you could set footage of us clipping our nails to Hurt and we would still burst into tears at the end – but this shows a huge amount of promise.
There’s a broken and beaten down Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), his healing factor on the wane. There’s an ancient Professor X (Patrick Stewart) clinging onto life and a sliver of hope in a post-mutant world. And throughout there’s a neo-Western vibe that is bang on trend.
Here’s hoping our expectations are rewarded next March, when Logan hits cinemas.
