Wolverine and Laura are on the run on a new Logan poster
20th Century Fox has just released a new Logan poster, which you can check out in full in the gallery viewer at the bottom of this page. The design features Hugh Jackman‘s title mutant clutching young actress Dafne Keen’s Laura. Laura Kinney, as Marvel fans are well aware, is the name that female Logan clone X-23 later took in the comics.
X-23 made her comic book debut in 2004, after originally being conceived and debuting in the animated series X-Men: Evolution. Her origins stem from a group attempting to replicate the Weapon X program, which gave Wolverine his adamantium skeleton, but who decided to go in a different direction and attempt to clone Wolverine outright. The first 22 attempts at cloning Logan failed, which is where the young mutant received her code name after being the first success.
Like Wolverine, X-23 has superhuman strength, reflexes, agility, and a healing factor. The primary difference in the pair is X-23 has only two claws on her hands, with an extra that can be popped out of each of her feet. Throughout her publication history, X-23 has been a loner, a member of the X-Men and X-Force, and has currently taken on the mantle of Wolverine following the hero’s death.
Also starring Sir Patrick Stewart, Eriq La Salle, Stephen Merchant, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez, Logan is coming to theaters on March 3, 2017. Directed by James Mangold and scripted by David James Kelly, the new film will mark the ninth (and said to be final) time that Jackman has played the Marvel Comics character on the big screen.
