Hugh Jackman in Logan

Seeing as how Logan, the third and reportedly final Wolverine movie, opens in March, the film was able to keep a lot of its secrets close to the vest. Well, finally the curtain has been pulled back, and details on Hugh Jackman's farewell Wolverine project have been revealed courtesy of a haunting new trailer for the 20th Century Fox blockbuster.

Only, it doesn't look much like a blockbuster, at all. If that wasn't Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) in the lead role, this first look at Logan could pass for a mid-budget indie that was hoping to make waves at a film festival like South By Southwest. Instead, it's the next chapter in a massive mutant saga bearing the title card Marvel, and ready to let a beloved anti-hero -- played by a massive movie star for the past 17 years -- ride off into the sunset.

Seeing as how everything we thought we knew about Logan was rumor and hearsay up until the trailer dropped, let's run through the key facts that have been confirmed by our first Logan trailer, starting with:

Logan 1

Most of the Mutants are Gone, Likely Dead

This story will be set in the distant future, where Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Logan (Hugh Jackman) are the last of their kind remaining. We aren't 100% sure WHICH X-Men timeline Logan will follow, but either way, the last time we saw Charles with his team of superheroes -- either in Days of Future Past or Apocalypse -- he was surrounded by Beast, Cyclops, Jean, Storm and the rest. What happened? Are they all dead, as the funeral shot above suggests? We'll have to wait to find out for sure, but mutants are in short supply in James Mangold's Logan.
