Hugh Jackman Reveals Title for Wolverine 3 in First Official Poster
Ever since Hugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine was announced, fans have hoped against hope that it would be based on the acclaimed comic storyline Old Man Logan. Now, that is all but confirmed, as the first poster has revealed that the name of the film is simply, "Logan."



Although it's not the exact title, this is clearly referring to the Old Man Logan storyline. By dropping the "Old Man" part, the studio avoids turning off non-comics fans by making it sound like Wolverine will be off his game, but also pleases comic book fans who know the oblique reference, especially coupled with that baby hand.

And speaking of the baby hand, we all know to whom it belongs:



Just kidding, it's not Deadpool (although that would be awesome). It could be the young girl who's rumored to be X-23, although she's supposed to be a pre-teen, and that looks like a child's hand. More revealing, however, is the second page of the screenplay, tweeted by director James Mangold:



Aside from further confirming that the title is "Logan," the script tells us only good things about this movie. It immediately tells us that the film is earning its R-rating, with a "fuck" appearing within the first couple of pages and villains attacking Logan with crowbars and drills. The script also makes it very explicit that the violence will be realistic in this movie, in a clear reaction to the reception of the previous Wolverine films:

Opening quote
"In this film, people will get hurt or killed when shit falls on them. They will get just as hurt or just as killed if they get hit with something big and heavy like, say, a car. Should anyone in our story have the misfortune to fall off a roof or out a window, they won't bounce. They will die."
Closing quote

Wolverine 3 is slated to hit theaters on March 3, 2017. There's no word on when the first trailer is coming out, only that we will see footage very soon.
