Finally, a look at 2017’s “Logan” that’s in color! So far, almost all of the images released to hype up next year’s final Wolverine movie have been presented in a stylish black and white. Ominous bullet holes, mechanical hands, mysterious characters — they’ve all been glimpsed in desaturated photos. Now, courtesy of Empire, we have a full color look at Hugh Jackman’s final adventure as the clawed X-Man.
The image features Logan (Jackman) carrying Laura (Dafne Keen) out of harm’s way and away from a raging fire.
The larger context of this image remains unknown; we do know that Keen is playing Wolverine’s female clone X-23 and that Logan will be tasked with protecting her from various threats in the film. So far we know those threats include Donald Pierce and his Reavers, as well as whatever it is that he’s carrying her away from in this new photo.
The article accompanying the image also included a few comments from director James Mangold, who talked about his mission statement when it came to making this final Wolverine movie. “The goal was to make something human,” said Mangold. “We made an effort to scale back on the gloss and greenscreen.”
And by “scale back,” Mangold means that fans shouldn’t expect the same level of blockbuster action seen in recent superhero movies — and he used quite colorful language to get that point across. As Mangold said, “If you’re on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying CG fuckathon, this ain’t your movie.”
Jackman agreed with the sentiments, adding that the story is about an internal struggle. “It’s essential you see this as the story of a man who is struggling with mortality and legacy,” said Jackman, “and whether the world has been better off with him or without him.”
And if the black and white images are more your style, then there’s also a new one of those as well. The latest image from the wponx Instagram account focuses on what might be Wolverine’s old and tired hands. Take a look for yourself:
Directed by James Mangold, written by Michael Green, Scott Frank, James Mangold and David James Kelly, and starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Dafne Keen and Stephen Merchant, “Logan” arrives in theaters on March 3, 2017.
