Logan director James Mangold teases the grim final film

20th Century Fox has released a new photo from Logan (via Empire) featuring star Hugh Jackman as the title hero saving the young X-23, played by Dafne Keen in the film. Check it out below!

Director James Mangold spoke about the film as well, teasing its grounded and grim nature.

“The goal was to make something human,” Mangold told the outlet. “We made an effort to scale back on the gloss and greenscreen…If you’re on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying CG f***athon, this ain’t your movie.”

Sir Patrick Stewart also stars in the film, which marks the ninth time that Hugh Jackman has played the character on the big screen. Mangold is directing from a script by David James Kelly.

Little is still known about the film despite its trailer, though we know that the primary villains for the film will include The Reavers as well as Wolverine’s favorite group, Weapon X. It stands to reason that Sinister’s role in the film will be tied to the creation of X-23, the young female clone of Wolverine also along for the film’s road trip.

The cast for Logan also includes Stephen Merchant, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez. Logan is coming to theaters on March 3, 2017.
