Considering the success of Deadpool, there is a tonne of anticipation surrounding Fox’s next R-Rated X-Men spin-off, Logan - AKA Wolverine 3.

Already, Ryan Reynolds has called the film ‘Oscar worthy’ while early reactions to the first 40 minutes of the film have been phenomenal.

Finally, the film’s official plot synopses has finally been revealed by than Hugh Jackman, the actor Tweeting out the new information.

The plot synopses reads: 

“In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempt to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.”

Most of the information was already known thanks to a trailer, released late last year, which featured music by Johnny Cash. In it, we saw the dying Professor X, along with X-23, the young mutant who Logan looks after.

Meanwhile, the first images of Stephen Merchant as the mutant Caliban - the aforementioned ‘dark forces’ - were released last year, the character appearing wearing a hood in the trailer.

Caliban also featured in X-Men: Apocalypse, played by Tomas Lemarquis, with fans unsure exactly how the two are related. It's not clear where Logan fits into the X-Men timeline.

Speaking about the film in an interview, Hugh Jackman said: “Basically, it’s going to be different. Very different in tone and hopefully to anything we’ve done”. Mangold has since added: “If you're on the make for a hyper-choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying CG f**kathon, this ain't your movie.

“In this flick, people get hurt or killed when shit 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 hits cinemas 3 March 2017.
