They say you can’t know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been.
There have been quite a few Logan fan trailer mashups since the first look debuted, but this one from YouTuber afauclair helps us really dive into the physical, emotional, and psychological journey we’ve taken with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine for the past 16 years. It mixes Logan with footage from all of Wolverine’s previous live-action films. By that, I mean their best parts, of course (no middle finger/claw here).
It creates some interesting parallels, showing us his past while hinting at his future. Wolverine’s lost almost everyone close to him, whether it’s having to kill Jean Grey in order to save her or letting Rogue go so she can find her own way in the world. It gives us more insight to what we could see happen between Wolverine and X-23, who’s arguably closer to him than almost anyone else.
If anything else, it achieves the near-impossible of making X-Men: The Last Stand look good.
Logan arrives in theaters March 3, 2017.
