In case you missed it, Hugh Jackman has finally revealed the official title of his latest Wolverine movie, along with a teaser poster showing his bruised claw held by a much smaller hand last October 5, 2016. Because we were at the edge of our seats when he first dropped the photo on social media, Logan director James Mangold also gave everyone a peek into what we’re bound to see in cinemas in 2017.

Director Mangold, who was behind The Wolverine in 2013, shared the second page of the movie’s screenplay on Twitter (via his account, @mang0ld) that read: “In this flick, people will get hurt or killed when shit falls on them. They will get just as hurt or just as killed if they get hit with something big and heavy, like, say, a car. Should anyone in our story have the misfortune to fall off a roof or out a window, they won’t bounce. They will die.”He further revealed that Logan, being older and in a drunken state, engages in action with his claws extended but is soon pounded with knives, guns, and fists.
Logan is Jackman’s last donning of the Wolverine character and from his recent interview with Collider, he admitted that he feels the pressure has gone the highest notch ever.
“I feel that I’m pushing harder than I’ve ever pushed before. I suppose the stakes just go up when you announce before your last season that this is your last season, you don’t want one game to not be your best. People ask me, ‘How are you gonna be able to let it go?’ To me the only way you can let it go is if you left blood every day on the studio floor,” he said.
Logan will open in Philippine cinemas on March 1, 2017 from 20th Century FOX, to be distributed by Warner Bros.
