After 2 kind of annoying Wolverine stand alone movies that failed to capture the core essence and fury of Logan, the new dramatic looking installment seems to be coming close. A look at the trailer for the 2017 Logan sees the Wolverine more bearded than usual, as though he has actually aged, which goes against his inherent mutation.
The tale of the little girl in the mix is what probably brings out the dramatic turn that the film seems to be. It almost looks like a country setting Oscar norm sort of movie, but with flashes of Adamantium claws and a Professor X. Take a look.
