Logan looks to potentially be one of the more interesting comic book movies to hit next year. While many are more concerned with the threat of the entire planet, Logan seems to focus on a more personal story. Sure, at the end of the day, it may very well hinge on the future existence of mutants, but I don’t expect we’ll be seeing anyone drop an entire city onto the Earth.
The style and tone of the first trailer adds to the intrigue. It doesn’t even feel like a superhero film. It feels more like a modern western that happens to feature superheroes. For the first time since Nolan’s The Dark Knight, the “superhero” aspect feels more ancillary than central to the story, and in an era where we get a new comic book movie every few months, that’s refreshing as hell.
That being said, you know there are going to be some major throwdowns in the flick, and one can’t exactly go up against the clawed mutant Wolverine without some sort of edge. The baddies this time around appears to be Donald Pierce and his Reavers — cyborgs hired by the main villain Mr. Sinister to find Wolverine, Professor X, and X-23, who are the last of the mutants.
Over the past few weeks, we’ve been able to see all sorts of beautiful black-and-white photos from the official Logan Instagram account, wponx.
Check out the latest photo that teases a cybernetic arm.
My gut is to think this arm belongs to Donald Pierce. As you see in the photo at the top of the article, his mech arm was shown in full in the trailer. That being said, he’s leading a band of cyborgs, so it could be anyone’s arm. It’s a pretty image, but I have to echo my sentiments from the last Los Fanboys Podcast.
While I appreciate the visual stylings of these images, we’ve already seen that the movie is in full color. Why not release photos that actually reflect the visual aesthetic of the film? Why tease us with a beautiful black-and-white film that we’ll never get to enjoy? But that’s just a stupid complaint from a superfan. Don’t mind me.
