20th Century Fox has released an unsettling (and bloody) promo clip from Logan featuring Laura Kinney (Dafne Keen), aka X-23, going under the knife to get her super-lethal adamantium claws. Yeesh!
In the pages of the Marvel comics, X-23 is a female clone of Wolverine. The character actually made her debut in the X-Men: Evolution animated series before appearing in the NYX comics in 2004. Like our main man Logan, X-23 possesses a healing factor, superhuman strength, speed, senses, agility and reflexes.
However, unlike Logan, who has three retractable adamantium-clad claws on each hand, X-23 boasts two as well as one on each foot. And yeah, it looks like the movie is going to go there, too.
The action takes place in 2029 in a world where mutants are now a dying breed. The third stand-alone Wolverine movie will feature Hugh Jackman's last hurrah as the titular character and see the return of Patrick Stewart as an aging Professor X. Logan will also introduce Stephen Merchant as Caliban and Boyd Holbrook as Donald Pierce; the leader of a team of mutant-hating cyborgs called The Reavers. Richard E. Grant plays Dr. Zander Rice, the creator of X-23 who works for the dastardly Weapon X program ... you know, the same group of dudes who experimented on Logan (as seen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men: Apocalypse).
Logan will bare its claws on March 3.
