‘Logan’ First Look: Professor X Truly Is Wolverine’s ‘Old Friend’ (Photo)

Following the official title announcement and various plot details about “Logan,” Hugh Jackman revealed a first look at his “old friend,” Professor X.

On Wednesday, Jackman and director James Mangold revealed that the official title for “Wolverine 3” will be “Logan,” along with a movie poster that showed the hand of the clawed mutant holding the hand of a child.

“Logan” will be Jackman’s last hurrah as the character, which he first played in 2000’s “X-Men” and reprised in subsequent follow-ups. He starred as the mutant in solo films “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and “The Wolverine.”

Plot details were kept under wraps apart from the fact that “Logan” would be set in the future, until TheWrap reported exclusive details. Logan is an alcoholic and his powers are fading — sometimes, they don’t show up at all.

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.”
