New LOGAN Promo Features The Origin Of X-23
Very quietly, a video has surfaced providing some background into Laura aka X-23 from the upcoming 20th Century Fox film Logan. It’s a bit of a tease, and lacks a lot of audio, but the message is clear. She is a young female version of Wolverine. Let’s pretend like no one reading this is aware of, nor read, the Old Man Logan comics.
The video looks good, but there is still some apprehension. We want for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine to be sent out on a high note, right? Who thought it was a good decision to reveal that Laura (X-23) is more than just a mutant that needs Wolverine’s protection? Wouldn’t this be a good time to mimic the claws from the comics, that don’t come from in between her fingers? Why haven’t we at least seen Mister Sinister’s face?
But, watching Laura slash her arm open and witness her healing factor does give a smile. Look at how far things have come since 2000’s X-Men. Sure, the road was bumpy. But, we’re about to ride into the sunset. Let’s just hope this R-rated, brutal; swan song concludes Jackman’s Wolverine trilogy is a respectable fashion. Also, having Deadpool in the post-credits doesn’t hurt anyone, does it?
Check out the video below.
Logan will hit theaters March 3, 2017.
