Pretty good shot of Patrick Stewart in the final Wolverine film for Hugh Jackman... and a nod to Mangold for also satisfying the photography nerds amongst us with details of the settings the shot was taken at.
So if they didn't mention the word mutants, imo, you would be forgiven for mistaking it for a non-xmen movie.
Anyway, I don't really understand what's going on in the trailer, maybe because I haven't seen number 2? Is it meant to follow on from that or another X-Men movie?
Yeah all the Wolverine flicks seem to be stand alone flicks. I think they just used the post apocalyptic setting of OML and the end result looks more like The Last Of Us or Book of Eli. Still, I like Hugh as Wolvy and having Patrick Stewart adds to the appeal. Will watch this in the cinemas if time permits.

I have a feeling this will tie heavily into Deadpool 2, with Cable being confirmed for Deadpool 2, and him having a pretty big role in the Old Man Logan storyline, and well, both franchises are owned by Fox.
And if you've seen Apocalypse, during a scene at the end of the movie (potential heavy spoilers for Logan)
A company called Essex took Wolverines DNA, most likely to make a clone named X-23. Kinda makes Xavier's line to Logan about the girl being very much like him make a bit more sense.
Yeah, it looks like cyborgs, Mr Sinister and aging will be the antagonists in Logan. Having never read the Old Man Logan comic/graphic novel (only the Wikipedia synopsis), I'm not particularly invested in this being true to that source material but I do like the concepts they're bringing to this story. Mangold has indicated that Logan's healing factor still works quickly but age has diminished it's effectiveness with scars showing following the healing and Logan having chronic pain as well; probably due to the healing factor not managing the adamantium in him very well). And poor Xavier is suffering from dementia which is definitely a sad outcome given his power relies on his mental state. I suspect a conversation between Charles and Magneto's gravestone too at some point. I think this one is truly going to tug on the feels.
Lol. Yeah it can get confusing. Logan continues on from the new timeline indeed. Doesn't explain how he got metal claws back in DOFP but I think most people just assume Magneto did something between The Wolverine and DOFP.
My bro and I had an interesting theory. I doesn't quite make sense why Prof X is still around when the other X-men have supposedly died off... what if they pull a Sixth Sense or A Beautiful Mind on us and Prof X is actually just Logan's imagination?

There's a good chance they didn't die from natural causes though
