After Fox dropped the first look at next year's third and final Wolverine solo film, it was only a matter of time before an editor recut the trailer with footage from the '90s "X-Men" animated series. That time has come, and YouTuber Phillysteak has made a mash-up trailer for "Logan" that, even using clips from the animated series, still packs an emotional punch.
Set to the strains of Johnny Cash's "Hurt," just like the real "Logan" trailer, the animated trailer reinterprets footage from the '90s Fox series featuring Wolverine in street clothes and a bedridden Professor X, as well as an iconic scene from the series' "Days of Future Past" adaptation, to get its bleak view across.
And, appropriately, the footage diverts from the '90s source material to include clips from the early '00s animated series "X-Men: Evolution." That's appropriate because that series is where X-23, played by Dafne Keen in the film, made her debut. And while we woulda liked to have seen '90s cartoon footage of Caliban and Donald Pierce dropped into the trailer, it still works surprisingly well.
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.
