Hugh Jackman Reveals Official Title for Third ‘Wolverine’ Film
Movies| | By Brian Delpozo
After months of speculation, the official title and poster for the upcoming third solo film starring the X-Men’s Wolverine has been released.
Hugh Jackman will once again take on the role of the fan-favorite mutant in the third installment of the franchise, simply titled, Logan. Jackman first revealed the title on his Twitter account with a photo of an advertisement on a NYC building. The name is a reference to Wolverine’s civilian identity, and also seems to prop-up rumors that the film will take at least some of its cues from the Marvel Comics Old Man Logan series.
The film’s official poster was also revealed, an HD version of the building-side artwork, on director James Mangold’s twitter account.
Much like the title, the poster seems to hint at another long-running rumor about the film being true: that Wolverine’s “daughter” X-23 will play a roll.
In addition to the poster, Mangold also shared a page of the film’s script that has an emphasis on violence.
Logan is scheduled for release on March 3. Directed by Mangold and starring Jackson, the film also features X-Men veteran Patrick Stewart, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez.
