Director James Mangold has released yet another image from the upcoming “Logan,” giving us a first look at Hugh Jackman as an older Wolverine.

The movie takes place in the year 2024, and it’s dark. Darker than any other other “Wolverine” or “X-Men” movie.

Old Man Logan is in full effect. He looks bad, and drinks a lot. For work, he drives a 2024 Chrysler 300 limo that’s modified in the front to look more futuristic. He’s sick, his powers are fading, and he heals much more slowly — sometimes not at all.

In 2024, mutant births are severely in decline, and people aren’t sure why. We find out about a government-type operation called “Transigen” that is turning mutant children into killing machines. Logan ends up mentoring a young girl, who has two claws instead of his three.

Also, according to Fox India’s twitter account tweeting with the hashtag ‘#1DayToLoganTeaser’, we should see a teaser trailer for the film some time tomorrow.

Jackman first played the character in 2000’s “X-Men” and reprised the role in subsequent sequels, as well as standalone films “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and “The Wolverine.”

Directed by James Mangold, the film stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Eriq La Salle and Elise Neal.

“Logan” is scheduled to be released on Mar. 3.
