|It's about goddamn time that shit gets bloody|
In the future, where mutant kind has been nearly annihilated, Logan and Professor Xavier are on the run while protecting a little girl with similar powers and anger issues to the Wolverine. They're being pursued by a government tactical squad that's led by a ruthless cyborg. It would normally be easy for Logan to dispatch these unsavory hunters, however something is different; He doesn't heal like he used to and he's starting to age. Will he be able to protect the little girl? Is Professor Xavier only a figment of Logan's mind? And will this entire film be in the freaking desert?
My Prediction- Take the premise of the Stephen King based film Firestarter (1984), replace Drew Barrymore and David Keith with the little mutant girl and Hugh Jackman, make this the "Old Man Logan" of the third film in The Wolverine trilogy, and you have "Logan". The music selections and powerful imagery of the trailers, makes this film appear to be a sad but proper send off for everybody's favorite X-Man. I am adamant (ium) that Logan will absolutely not be a Piece Of Shit, but it needs to end in a way that's not as predictable as the previews would indicate. Maybe Deadpool and Cable could sneak in and save the day? Come on! Some of you were probably hoping for the same thing too.
Mike's Take -
Wolverine, the fact that there have been some good movies and some not-so-good movies in this franchise made me not so interested in this one, at least until I saw the first trailer. It seems someone actually does care about the direction of this franchise and it seems to be directly related to Deadpool.
Since that movie hit big (Deadpool), Fox has been scrambling to put something together to replicate that hit for it's X-Men franchise and this seems to be it. Ripped from the pages of Old Man Logan, this may be the final send off of Hugh Jackman's take on Wolverine/Logan. Saving Professor X, protecting a young mutant who may be the answer and salvation for the mutant race, fist punching bad guys, and finally, we get an "R" rated movie that's justified.
Logan won't be a piece of shit. Even thought we've been fooled before with stylistic trailers and quick cut action scenes from commercials for up and coming movies, this feels like a more serious in tone version of Deadpool than anything else.
