New ‘Logan’ image, poster puts Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in the sunlight

While Logan is the portrayal of Wolverine by Hugh Jackman, fans are increasingly excited about the film and Fox teased the project with a new poster and photo.

The metaphor of the setting sun takes on a new meaning as some sort of “cowboy riding off into the sunset.” The new Logan photo also prominently features a sunset, though it seems to be from a bit later in the evening. Check them out below.

Logan picks up with a much older Wolverine. His X-Men days are behind him and his powers are in decline, which means he’s constantly in pain. Also struggling is Professor X (Patrick Stewart), who is under Logan’s care. They’re called back into action when they meet Laura (Dafne Keen), a young mutant who needs their help.

Logan may be outside the X-Men timeline of other films.

“Hugh and I have been talking about what we would do since we were working on the last one, and for both of us it was this requirement that, to be even interested in doing it, we had to free ourselves from some assumptions that had existed in the past, and be able to change the tone a bit,” director James Mangold said of the new film.

“Not merely to change for change’s sake, but also to make something that’s speaking to the culture now, that’s not just the same style — how many times can they save the world in one way or another? How can we construct a story that’s built more on character and character issues, in a way as if it almost wasn’t a superhero movie, yet it features their powers and struggles and themes?”

The new film also stars Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal, and Elizabeth Rodriguez.

Logan is set to open into theaters on March 3, 2017.
