Wolverine will be "pursued by dark forces" according to Logan synopsis

As excitement ramps up for the next Wolverine instalment, Logan (opens in new tab), the man himself - well, actor Hugh Jackman anyway - has released a semi-official synopsis giving us clues on what we can expect from the new movie.

In a Twitter tease, Jackman’s image says: "In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces."

Under the image, Jackman wrote just one word: “official”. Which makes it, well, official, I guess.

And that’s not all: Jackman’s also drip-fed a selection of new movie photos, too.
