‘Logan’ Trailer Promising a Bloody and Violent Wolverine Movie!

Because two Wolverines are better than one…

I haven’t been paying too much attention to FOX’s next standalone Wolverine feature, mostly because I’m sick of being disappointed. But, with the launch of Cinema Runner, I thought that maybe I should take a peak at the new trailer. Holy fuck?

James Mangold’s Logan looks like a vicious, bloody, and insanely violent X-Men film. Growing up on the comics, I love seeing Logan, played once again by Hugh Jackman, beat up and worn down. More importantly, seeing him with a sidekick of sorts, such as Kitty Pride and Jubilee. I really love when he plays the father role, such as in the 1991 “Wolverine” comic that paired him with a little girl robot, Elsie-Dee. Wolverine can handle himself, which is sort of boring, but when he becomes a protector is when you don’t want to fuck with him. Logan appears to understand this concept and takes it a step further by pairing him with his daughter, who also sheds claws and has a mean streak.

The footage in the trailer is funny, with more emphasis on the “fun”; the sequence in the supermarket is exactly the kind of humor this franchise needs. But what’s always been missing from the adaptations is violence. Sure, we’ve seen Wolverine go berserker in the past, but not like this, and not coming from his sibling. The trailer really shows its claws and hones in on the uber-violence. And with the film looking like it’s inspired by the Terminator franchise, my only wish is to see Wolverine get damaged as much as Schwarzenegger’s T-800. I want to see Logan bleed.

The first synopsis was just sent over, which sheds some light on what’s going on in the trailer:

Set in the future of 2024, Logan and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men when a corporation lead by Nathaniel Essex is destroying the world leaving it to destruction, with Logan’s healing abilities slowly fading away and Xavier’s Alzheimer’s forcing him to forget. Logan must defeat Nathaniel Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine.

In theaters March 3, 2017 (happy birthday to me, indeed!), Logan stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal, and Elizabeth Rodriguez.

  • This should be cool. I only watch some comic book movies here and there. They all seem to bleed together, but I’m always up for the ones that seem to be trying something different. A bloody, adult, R rated Wolverine? Yes, please.

    I love when a franchise has balls and takes risks. They could have gone the cheesy yellow costume route to pander to a younger audience, but they decided to go the darker, more dramatic route instead. It looks great so far. I appreciate movies like Deadpool for helping open the gates to more R-rated turns (even though I know it wasn’t the first).

      I am 46 years old, and I would LOVE, just once, to see Wolverine in the black and yellow costume on the big screen.

      • nowaygetreal

        I agree, but it would have been suited more for the first three X-Men films.

      • Vincent Kane

        I can see it happening in a Deadpool sequel and it will be glorious. Haha

        • Mark B

          Or even if they have an X-Force movie with Wolverine making an appearance in the black/gray suit.

  • CelticBull

    There’s an extended trailer with cursing, too.

  • Matt

    This keeps looking better and better, I cannot wait to see it! Too bad Mr. Jackman is hanging up the adamantium claws after this one. (It will also be nice to see Patrick Stewart, possibly for the last time (?), as Professor X. He was/is perfect for that role.)

  • silverfishimperitrix

    That looked insanely violent to you? You’d better not see John Wick 2, Snowflake. (Kidding)

  • WALKTER

    Looks pretty good, and I hope it is, but I remember the suicide squad trailers had me thinking the same thing about that movie.

  • J Jett

    i’m not really a Wolverine fan (he’s ok-ish but i got sick of him hogging every fucking XMEN movie!) but this new film actually looks excellent! i was reading the play by play description of the first 40 minutes (seen by people over at Joblo) and i’m definitely already a big fan of X-23 (the “mini-Wolverine”)/Laura. going by the Joblo review X-23 is 100% badass! this will be the first Wolverine movie i want to see in theaters/i will see in theaters.

  • J Jett

    oh here’s the Joblo link (i don’t know if it will be allowed or not on Bloody-disgusting) to the exact play by play of the first 40 minutes of LOGAN.

    I was interested in Logan until I watched this trailer. Lol.

  • eyoh_Ajax

    Ground breaking plot lines and execution! This movie looks way ahead of it’s time! I’m going to buy 3 tickets just so I can make sure I see it!

  • Blood Boil

    When will these comic book movies realize that the ones that actually do the best have the most memorable and distinct villains?…again, we have a human villain in some military/militia-ish organization…boring…more hollowed out, soulless, Hollywood nonsense. So many great Wolverine story lines they could have played off of and now we have Wolverine and his Kid Sister vs. The Army Navy Store.. snooze.

  • Erik The Red

    This looks like the plot of Firestarter. Protect the powerful little girl from the big bad military.

  • Sabretooth

    I’m disappointed with the route they took-not only was it unnecessarily violent-but the film has no connection to the past films. In the past films-Logan showed a strong distaste for killing and to go deeper then that-the xmen were formed to teach mutants to control their powers to help others so that the world would be safe for mutants and you where mutants would be accepted….this film has destroyed 17 years of hard work.
