Geekery: Logan Final Trailer

Logan-Poster-Sunset_1200_1809_81_s

This is going to be a very different X-Men movie.

This feels more like a western or a thriller than what we’ve come to know as comic book movies – heavy in CG, giant in scope. I like it. Hopefully it pans out into a good movie. The last several Wolverine focuses movies were not all that great

Millar’s Old Man Logan is the base of the plot – 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 as several of the required characters are off limits due to Marvel having the rights.

If you haven’t been paying attention to the on set Instagram account, I highly suggest you do. The photos are fantastic. They’re wrth a look even if you aren’t digging the trailers.

    2nd trailer has gotten me a smidge worried for how good this film will actually be…

    • vulk4n

      Why?

      • Severius_Tolluck

        Because, it will be palatable, we cant have that!

      • Horus84cmd

        seems like is it trying too hard.

        • Parthis

          It kinda has to try hard; the X-men movies, on the whole, are sub-par.

          • Horus84cmd

            I worry it will go the other way and be overdoing it to compensate

  • pokemastercube .

    the film was sold to me with the inclusion of X-23

    • Shawn

      Is she really all that great a character? I haven’t read any Marvel comics, with the exception of Clone Conspiracy as I get tired of them having the next big event every six months, changing characters genders/races willy-nilly, and slowly killing of the x-men because Fox still does well with the characters.

      • pokemastercube .

        i cant really say what i particually like about the character, but i have been a fan of her since her creation for x-men evolution. (yes she was created for a tv series first then adapted back into the comics).

        • Shawn

          Really? I didn’t know that. I saw her first in the comics and didn’t think much. I was like great, The Weapon X Program again, oh look, it’s another clone of another hero. How about that. Funny though, I never hear about good heroic clones of the super-villians. Have you?

          • pokemastercube .

            well now you do 😉 she is a rare example of a character created for a adaptation of comics that actually make it back in to the comics, the most famous example of this happening in harly quinn who was created for batman the animaed series first. in addition agents colson, may,fitz and simmons all new creations for the MCU have now appeared in the main comics
            yea it is odd we dont see that happening of a bad clone turning out good, closest to that i can think of is a copy of doctor octopuss’s mind that ended up in peater’s body and he became the new spider-man and was still a hero.

          • Shawn

            Yeah. Thanks about the origin of X-23. I knew about Harley, of course. Yeah, it seems like the writers all get into rehashing the same thing. It would be great if they could bring back some of the better writers such Walt Simonson, John Byne, and Chris Claremont.

  • Shawn

    I think this will be the best Wolverine movie, and perhaps, the best X-men movie to date.

  • MechBattler

    I personally think Logan teaching X23 how to be a real person and then dying at the end of this to save her would be the best ending they could give to his character development.

    • Davor Mackovic

      First off, how do you kill Wolverine? Second movies are just as bad as comics. Nobody ever really dies especially when it comes to super heroes and villains.

      • MechBattler

        He’s dead in the comics. X23 took his place as Wolverine. Some kind of virus disabled his mutant healing and he died encased in adamantium.

        Hulk’s dead too. Hawkeye killed him with a special arrow Banner made because he asked him to.

        In the Ultimate comics, Peter Parker died and Miles Morales took his place as Spider Man.

        There are definitely characters that stay dead.
