Said to be Hugh Jackman’s final portrayal of the iconic steely clawed mutant character, Logan brings viewers to the year 2029 when mutant population has significantly decreased and an aging Logan is now working as a chauffeur to get by while he’s caring for Professor X. Logan’s “retirement” is interrupted when he drives for a young mutant girl, young X-23, who mirrors his powers. All of a sudden, Logan is faced with a choice to utilize what remains of powers to protect the girl from dark forces.
20th Century Fox recently launched a Logan Super Bowl trailer featuring “Amazing Grace” as background to chunks of action and drama clips. Directed by James Mangold, it also stars Patrick Stewart reprising his role as Professor X alongside Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, and Dafne Keen.
Jackman, who first played Wolverine/Logan 18 years ago, has appeared in the X-Men series and stand-alone Wolverine films since 1999.
