New 'Logan' Photos Tease Caliban and Donald Pierce in All Their Glory
Logan has had one of the best marketing campaigns for a comic book movie in recent memory (with the possible exceptions of Deadpool and, unfortunately, Suicide Squad), with all of the footage and photos reflecting the apparent artful, gritty tone. Now, two new photos from the film preview one ally and one villain in the middle of the desert dystopia:




The pictures, posted by Latino Review founder Kellvin Chavez, feature Stephen Merchant's Caliban and Boyd Holbrook's Donald Pierce. Caliban is, as far as we know, a good guy who is helping Logan take care of the ancient Professor X. He also has the ability to track mutants, which may be the key to Logan finding X-23. 

Donald Pierce, however, is a different story. He's been touted as the main villain, and in the comics is the leader of the Reavers, a team of cyborg criminals who will also appear in the film. Other than that, his character remains pretty mysterious, although we saw confirmation of his bionic arm in the first trailer

Opening quote
Logan takes place in the year 2024, where mutant births have become extremely rare. The defenders of mutant kind, the X-Men, are long gone, and the only remains of them are an old and struggling Charles Xavier and a weary Logan. Logan's vaunted healing factor has slowed, and at times doesn't seem to work at all. When a young mutant needs his help, Logan has to unsheathe his claws once more. His job isn't over yet.

Logan hits theaters on March 3, 2017.
