Wolverine continues to flex his considerable muscles at the box office, with Hugh Jackman’s X-Men swan song Logan already closing in on $300 million in global ticket sales in less than a week. As Marvel fans undoubtedly know, the film is very loosely based on Old Man Logan, an eight-issue 2008 miniseries by writer Mark Millar and artist Steven McNiven. The film distills the Old Man Logan story to its essence: Logan, long retired from crimefighting in a dystopian future bereft of fellow superheroes, embarks on a hazardous road trip with an old friend — a journey of self-discovery in which tragedy spurs a renewed sense of purpose.
There are three major movies out this weekend, but Logan seems to be your best bet. Then again, if you have a teen and are wary of the violence in Hugh Jackman’s final Wolverine movie, Before I Fall might be a better option.

Abrams’s 2009 Star Trek reboot, and also received a nomination for 2013’s The Lone Ranger — one of his 16 collaborations with Johnny Depp. Adding to a résumé full of blockbuster credits, Harlow will next put his talents to use for two upcoming superhero films — this March’s Logan, and next year’s Black Panther — as well as Depp’s fifth go-round as Captain Jack Sparrow in this summer’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Marvel fans are still geeking out over the first trailer for Logan, James Mangold’s radical new take on adamantium-clawed X-Man Wolverine, who’ll be played once again — presumably for the last time — by Hugh Jackman. The promo’s downbeat vision of a future in which mutants are mostly extinct and Jackman’s hero roams the desert like some sort of diminished Western loner became an instant online hit. And now, one YouTuber has seen fit to coat the character’s prior outings in a similar atmosphere of fatalistic bleakness.
Actor's presumed final turn as X-Men character will be called 'Logan'; new image will likely fuel speculation that story is based on "Old Man Logan" comic series
