Early Friday morning Hugh Jackman's official Twitter account revealed the "official" synopsis for Logan. Unlike Old Man Logan by Mark Millar and artist Steve McNiven, which many fans assume to be the primary source material for this film, Logan does not appear to be a direct adaptation of Clint Eastwood's classic western, Unforgiven.

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.

From CBR:

We know that "Logan" is set years after the epilogue 0f 2014's "X-Men: Days of Future Past," and that the young mutant in question is Laura, better known as X-23, played by Dafne Keen. Add to that the involvement of the Reavers, the Marvel Comics team of criminal cyborgs led by Donald Pierce (played by Boyd Holbrook), as well as Caliban (Stephen Merchant), a mutant who can sense and track other mutants.

Logan will be Jackman's ninth, and probably final, time portraying Marvel's most popular mutant, Wolverine, and the actor seems content with that:

I'm really, really proud of this movie," the actor recently said. "I was really keen that I didn't leave the party feeling like I could dance more. I think I'm pretty much danced out, and I had a great time. It's been an unbelievable ride, but it feels right.

Logan opens March 3rd and starts Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, and Dafne Keen.

About the Author - GHERU

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
