The first trailer for “Logan,” starring Hugh Jackman in his final performance as Wolverine, was released Thursday.

The film will revolve around the aging mutant living in solitude, until his old friend Professor X (Patrick Stewart) asks the former X-Men to help a young mutant who “needs our help.” It appears the “Logan” takes place in a time when mutants are an endangered species, as Logan says “they’re gone now.”

Since the poster and official title for “Logan” were revealed at the beginning of October, director James Mangold has been releasing photos from the set, revealing other characters such as Boyd Holbrook’s Donald Pierce. Mangold also tweeted out the second page of the script, which says that Logan is “older” and that “it’s clear his abilities aren’t what they once were.”

TheWrap also revealed various plot points for the upcoming film, including whose hand is in the official poster and when the movie will be set.
Along with Jackman, “Logan” also stars Richard E. Grant, Eriq La Salle and Elise Neal.
Jackman first appeared as the clawed mutant in 2000’s “X-Men,” and reprised his role in the movies that followed. The character received his standalone origin story with 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” followed up by “The Wolverine” in 2013.
Previously referred to as “Wolverine 3,” the final chapter in Jackman’s journey as the “X-Men” character is set for a March 3, 2017 release date.
