The poster for ‘LOGAN,’ which features Wolverine’s hand with claws extended has raised many questions about the film. It also includes what appears to be a small child’s hand, holding Logan’s. Some have speculated that the child is in fact X23, others are believing this to be the offspring of the world’s favorite X-Man.

Based on the pages of the tweeted script we are going to see a much older Logan now, who’s abilities aren’t what they use to be. He is in constant pain and turns to alcohol to self medicate.
The script also reads:
Now might be a good time to talk about the ‘fights’ described in the next 100 or so pages. Basically, if you’re on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying CG fuc#athon, this ain’t your movie. In this flick, people will get hurt or killed when shit falls on them. They will get just as 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. As for our hero, well, he’s older now and it’s clear his abilities aren’t what they once were. He’s fading on the inside and his diminished healing factor keeps him in a constant state of chronic pain – hence booze as a painkiller.
‘Logan’ is set to hit theaters March 3, 2017: Starring Hugh Jackman, Boyd Holbrook and Patrick Stewart
