'Logan' teaser looks - shock - meditative and sublime

We Finally Have Our First Look at Old Wolverine in <i>Logan</i>

Tim Burton's Gothic vision created the successful "Batman" series, but after "Batman & Robin" choked out any hope that was left when Burton left, we had 3 years of Hollywood being quiet and trying to reassess the superhero question. Cue in the year 2000 and Bryan Singer's "X-men" which started the new wave of Superhero movies, Hugh Jackman's Wolverine was born and the rise of the comic book movie into a billion-dollar Hollywood money-making machine was created. 

It is well-known that "Logan" will be the final film about Wolverine. In 2013 James Mangold took over for Gavin Hood and made, by far, the best Wolverine movie aptly titled "The Wolverine." Mangold is back for a final goodbye and the trailer does, in fact, look sublime and carried by Johnny Cash's doom-filled "Hurt." It almost feels like a swan song for the Superhero era, which has turned into a total and utter capitalistic machine of the highest order. A far cry from Burton's "Batman." "Logan" gets released on March 3rd, 2017. 

The official synopsis for the film reads as follows:
"Set in the future, Logan and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men when a corporation lead by Nathaniel Essex is bent on destroying the world. With Logan's healing abilities slowly fading away and Xavier's Alzheimer's forcing him to forget Logan must defeat Nathaniel Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine."
