LOGAN (also known as Wolverine 3 and Wolverine III) is an upcoming 2017 superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Wolverine. It is the sequel to 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine and 2013's The Wolverine, and is loosely based on the comic book series Old Man Logan by Mark Millar.
Directed by James Mangold (Walk the Line, The Wolverine), the film stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, and Dafne Keen. It marks the final portrayal of Jackman in the titular character after appearing in every main entry in the X-Men series to date.
Set in 2033, ten years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Logan has aged over the years making the promise not to use his claws for bloody purposes, with his healing factor weakened. That will change when an evil organization lead by Nathaniel Essex tries to use the rest of the remaining mutants in the world, turning them into weapons, and Logan will need to release the Wolverine persona to prevent it.
