Logan is loosely based on the “Old Man Logan” story arc in the Marvel comics, and Hugh Jackman has teased the film acknowledging the plotline beloved by fans for awhile now. With the film’s theatrical release date coming up, Jackman posted a photo across his social media channels captioned “Official” to reveal Logan’s plot. It’s not much, but it’s enough to set up the scene.

We’ve also included the synopsis in full below.
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border.
But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Logan director James Mangold shared even more photos he took from the set over the weekend, which he’s been doing ever since he started shooting the third Wolverine movie.
