In the world of X-Men comics, the robust source material for FOX’s respectable slate of X-Men films, Laura Kinney is a younger, female clone of Wolverine, another product of the dubious Weapon X program and designated X-23. In the leaked imagery before the LOGAN media machine began churning, and even after the release of the first official poster securing the film’s name, the girl (actress Dafne Keen) being shadowed by a noticeably more grizzled Wolverine was a partial, nagging mystery. And then it wasn’t. Afterwards, our friends at The Wrap confirmed she was indeed Laura Kinney, aka X-23; the trailer hit showing Laura in action; and now, this latest wponx image focuses on the young, innocent-yet-weaponized girl accompanied by the caption, “Laura.” OBSERVE!
Is Laura the future of the Wolverine franchise? Will she be whisked back in time and join with another iteration of the X-Men in order to thwart another iteration of Magneto as he enacts another iteration of his plan to wipe out humanity? Perhaps.
LOGAN currently has a release date of March 3rd, 2017 and stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Eriq La Salle and Elise Neal
