Logan is leaving his past in the past, and moving forward with The Wolverine. Rather than a prequel to the original three X-Men films, The Wolverine visits the titular character after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand. Logan has ended up in Japan (an iconic location from the comics) and he finds himself presented with a cure for his mutant ability.
While the character took quite the critical beating after The Last Stand and X-Men Origins: Wolverine, there’s still something compelling about Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of the character. So much so, that we’re willing to give him another shot. This film appears to be much darker in tone and chooses to explore a side of the character audiences have yet to see. Release date is July 26th. Check out the trailer below:
