It’s been a busy week for Wolverine.
First, director James Mangold shared a script page from the third solo outing starring Hugh Jackman as the popular, often feral, X-Man. Next, the film’s title was revealed to be “Logan,” the character’s first name, in the debut of the movie’s first poster. Then, Mangold revealed a photo of an aged Patrick Stewart as the film’s Professor X.

All in all, it’s been a pretty good series of reveals for fans eager for Jackman’s next, and potentially final go as the character. Rumors have run rampant that the film adapts Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s seminal “Old Man Logan” storyline from the character’s Marvel Comics adventures, and the title seemingly supports that. A more recent rumor, however, indicates that the movie may bring X-23, Logan’s young, female clone who is current;y the Wolverine of the MArvel Universe, into the X-Men’s cinematic reality — a theory supported by the teased involvement of classic X- Villain Mister Sinister, a character known for his cloning experimentation, in the film.
Now, the movie has launched an official Instagram account at https://www.instagram.com/wponx/ (Get it? Weapon X?). In addition to reposting the image of Prof. X and the script page, the account shared an example of just how violent we can expect the movie to be. Namely, a photo of an arm, separated from its owner’s body, presumably by Logan’s signature claws.
Directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant and Stephen Merchant, “Logan” arrives in theaters on March 3, 2017.
