First Look at Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier in LOGAN and He Looks Old and Tired
Yesterday we learned that Wolverine 3 will be called Logan, and we got a first poster for the film, along with some information regarding the plot. Now today, director James Mangold released a photo giving us our first look at Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier, and as you can see, he's looking very old and tired. It's both a stunning yet depressing look at this strong character we've come to know, love, and respect since the first X-Men film was released in 2000.
With his old age, there's no doubt that Xavier will be struggling with maintaining his mental faculties throughout the story. We also learned the following details about the film:
Logan takes place in the year 2024...Old Man Logan is in full effect. Logan looks bad, and drinks a lot. For work, he drives a 2024 Chrysler 300 limo that looks modified in the front to look more futuristic. He’s sick, his powers are fading, and he heals much more slowly — and sometimes not at all.
He will be accompanied by the young mutant he is holding hands with in the poster. This mutant is rumored to be X-23, but that has yet to be confirmed. Logan will be released in theaters on March 3rd, 2017. For more information on the film, click here.
