New Logan image confirms big rumor about character

The trailer for LOGAN has given fans the appropriate amount of arousal, offering plenty to ponder over. I for one am curious about the NO COUNTRY FOR NO OLD MEN locale, but most watchers were probably wondering about the small child (Dafne Keen) featured standing next to a bloodied Logan (Hugh Jackman). Well, it turns out she’s not just a small child, but something else entirely. Dun, dun, DUN!

The Instagram page wponx (Weapon-X, if spelled by a man who failed third grade), which has given us plenty of ominous black-and-white photos from the set, recently put out what may be the most important photo yet. In it we see the young girl with the name Laura underneath, and some of you more dedicated X-Men fans may be ahead of me here when it comes to what that name means.

 

Laura

Created for the animated show X-Men: Evolution, Laura Kinney a.k.a. X-23, is a clone of Wolverine/Logan fit with adamantium claws, super healing, heightened senses and affinity for cigars. She even proceeds to take over the mantle for Wolverine in All-New Wolverine after the Secret Wars event. Basically, we could be looking into the small, childlike eyes of the next Wolverine. They're so cute before they go crazy.

Granted anything can be said or done to throw fans off the trail, but there's a lot that gives away this is the character the small human will be playing. For instance, we need only look at the end credits scene for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE involving the Essex corporation taking some of Wolverine's blood, and Professor X (Patrick Stewart) telling Logan/Wolverine, "She's like you, very much like you," in the trailer to safely assume she is indeed X-23. Hence this is why the two are protecting her from the aforementioned shady corporation in the trailer. That, or she cheated Essex out of 25 cents at a lemonade stand. She said they were freshly squeezed!

Having X-23 in the movie offers up many different scenarios for how the movie could play out. Most fans are probably assuming she will take up the duties of Wolverine if he *gulp* dies, which is entirely possible considering this will be Jackman's last outing as the character. With these things I like to not get too sure, so as to keep everything fresh for when I see the movie. But that probably has more to do with my habit of lying to myself. People did remember my birthday, they just forgot my number. Yeah, that's it...

LOGAN is set for March 3, 2017.

I don't know why I always picture X-23 as being Asian. Also I agree with the commentators, It is pretty obvious who she is. Only mainstream movie goers won't know until they see it.

Is X-23 going to take over for Wolverine, I'd say probably, but not this particular actress. I see them doing it like Kitty Pryde and age the character to suit the story-line.

Thought this was fairly obvious from the trailer by Wolverine protecting himself from her, and Professor X stating how "she's just like you".

I've heard a lot of people mention that, but if you pause that scene, whoever Logan is struggling against has three claws as well. That could just mean that they gave her three claws as well in this film (I mean seriously, if you're going to clone Wolverine why downgrade ans switch to two?) or it could mean that he's struggling against somebody else.... say another clone or possibly Daken.

'"That, or she cheated Essex out of 25 cents at a lemonade stand. She said they were freshly squeezed!"
Jesus... talk about trying too much...
Matt Rooney always tries to be the clever kid in the class. Ends up getting his head flushed by the actual cool kids. I miss the O.G. writers of this site.

At least he seems to be trying to find a voice that's not just "Hey everyone, be cool, it's just a movie." There was a time when even new writers seemed to understand why people came to this site. By the fans, for the fans. With tongue firmly in cheek because Hollywood rarely got it right. I still think Paul Shirey and Chris Bumbray (and JimmyO on occasion) deliver. Alex Maidy could've continued that tradition until he got labeled "JoBlo's biggest hack" (I don't know if it's just his UnPopular

Alex Maidy could've continued that tradition until he got labeled "JoBlo's biggest hack" (I don't know if it's just his UnPopular Opinion, or something more). Really, it's that JoBlo is no longer just the little movie news site that could. It's a destination for lots of people big and small. And the fanboys run Hollywood, so there's a lot less raging against the machine than there used to be. There's a lot less promoting of indie movies, too, which is the biggest travesty, not just of this site, but the industry in general.

Anyway, that's my two cents about why maybe this site ain't what it used to be for us old-timers.
