Geekery: Logan Gets a Trailer

logan one more time

One thing is for sure: it’s got plenty of grit and melancholy.

The new trailers just keep coming…

First off: music choice – nicely done.

This trailer has a different tone – and less CG – than I’m used to seeing from Fox’s X-Men. It’s got an otherworldly kind of quality to it, and it feels more like a man against the world thriller than a super hero movie. I like it.

They’re definitely getting ideas from Old Man Logan with the aging aspect, missing mutants, and the dystopian feel. Curious to see what they come up with to fill the gaps because they can’t do a true adaptation – several of the required characters are off limits due to Marvel having the rights.

I’m digging this preview – will see how that feeling holds up over next several months.

They released a bunch of atmospheric photos too…









X-23? Yes/no?

    So we’ve got X-23. The dude with the bionic arm? Its the wrong side for Cable.

    • Davor Mackovic

      I didn’t think that was Cable.

    • Ben

      That’s Donald Pierce i do believe… He was a long time X-men cyborg baddy.. He and the maurders beat the living snot out of Logan back in the 80’s run i believe. Cruficied him and left him to die when the X-men were in hiding in the Australian outback if my memory serves me right.

      Now we can confirm The Last of Us needs Hugh Jackman…

        Thanks for the heads-up.

  • SonoftheMountain

    who is the guy who looks like a jacked Tom Felton?

  • MechBattler

    This looks like it’s going to be an excellent conclusion to the story arc of the character and passing of the torch.

  • Horus84cmd

    Fox will screw it up.
