The wponx Instagram account for the upcoming Wolverine-focused film “Logan” has posted an image that shows a discarded “X-Men” comic with the words “Death of a Mutant” plastered across the cover. The comic shows various members of the X-Men team — including the film’s starring characters, Professor Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) — gathered around a grave, grieving. The only caption on the post was the word “extinction.”
Trailers for “Logan” have shown that the film will take a meta-narrative approach to the existence of “X-Men” comics, which are of special interest to Dafne Keen’s character X-23. Taking place long after the rise and fall of mutants, the X-Men’s exploits have been condensed into semi-biographical comic books in the world of “Logan.”
Wolverine remarks in one trailer that the factual accuracy of the comics is questionable at best. However, if the in-fiction publications are even half true, then the “death of a mutant” could refer to any number of mutants who have fallen in the film series or a death left unseen in the years leading up to the near-extinction of all mutants.
Debuting in theaters March 3, “Logan” is directed by James Mangold and stars Hugh Jackman as Logan, Patrick Stewart as Charles, Dafne Keen as Laura, Boyd Holbrook as Pierce and Stephen Merchant as Caliban.
