After landing the role of Wolverine back in the 2000s, Hugh Jackman has been in almost every X-Men movie since. In 2017’s Logan, he will be wearing the claws for one final time. It appears 20th Century Fox is giving Jackman the sendoff he deserves, not only does Logan already look like the best Wolverine film yet, but it’s also going to be rated R. You can only imagine how far a Wolverine story can go with an R-rating.
Set in 2024, one year 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 led 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. It’s going to be epic.
