Thankfully, the effort they DIDN’T put into the latest poster clearly went into cutting the trailer.
Looks like they’re going with the most tried and true of superhero sequel formulas – the hero giving up his powers because they make him miserable, only to realize that he has a responsibility to take them back and be a bigger man. It’s worked at least twice, and this footage is already ten times better than anything in the last Wolverine movie.
Logan as a human atomic bomb shelter is pretty cool, but I do find it kind of hilarious that when he’s living “wild”, he grows long hair and a beard, and then his “Wolverine” hair and sideburns is somehow his cleaned-up look.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
