Wolverine might be getting too old for this s—!
A new image from Logan director James Mangold seems to finally confirm the rumors: Hugh Jackman’s last film as Wolverine will find him playing a much older version of the character.
On Wednesday, Mangold tweeted out the first photo of an aged Logan — and time hasn’t treated the character well, as Jackman sports a few gray hairs, beaten skin, a noticeable scar, and a haunted look in his eyes.
The image lines up with the belief that the third film in the Wolverine franchise is inspired by the 2008 comic book series, Old Man Logan, which features a worn down and weakened Wolverine living in a future with limited mutants.
This is just the latest character tease from Mangold, who earlier this week shared the first look at Stephen Merchant’s Caliban, and previously posted a look at Patrick Stewart’s return as Professor Xavier.
Logan hits theaters on March 3, 2017. Check out the photo of Jackman below.
