Logan director James Mangold has released three new images, giving us a look at the film’s primary heroes. Revealed on the director’s official Twitter page, the images show Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, Patrick Stewart as Professor X and newcomer Dafne Keen as Laura (X-23).
A new synopsis for Logan revealed that the film will see Wolverine protect this young girl from mysterious dark forces. In the comics, X-23 is the female clone of Wolverine and everything we’ve seen of the movie so far teases a strong bond between these characters.
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
