The first Logan trailer proves Wolverine is getting the darkest X-Men movie yet

What happens to superheroes when they get old? Well, if the first trailer for Logan is any indication, they get gruffer, grittier, and the soundtrack to their lives becomes a hell of a lot cooler. You can watch the first trailer - which is set to the sound of Johnny Cash’s cover of Nine Inch Nails' Hurt - below. Enjoy. 

The trailer definitely has a Mad Max feel to it and is a million miles away from the original X-Men movies, which made Hugh Jackman's superhero a household name. It may look like a grim way to end the Wolverine franchise, but personally, this is the gritty X-Men movie I've been waiting for.

Directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, and Elizabeth Rodriguez, Logan will be released in cinemas on March 3, 2017.
