Professor X is back — and he’s looking more seasoned than in previous films.
Director James Mangold has shared the first photo of Patrick Stewart from Logan, the third Wolverine film starring Hugh Jackman. The reveal comes one day after Mangold shared the first poster and a page from the script, which indicated this movie’s version of Logan is older, has a diminished healing factor, chronic pain, and drinking issues.

“Basically, if you’re on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying CG f–kathon, this ain’t your movie,” the script read. “In this flick, people get hurt or killed when s–t 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.”
Logan is set for March 3, 2017.
