Early next month, Hugh Jackman's journey as Wolverine will conclude in Logan, ending a superhero career that's lasted nearly two decades. From what's been shown in previews and marketing so far, Logan looks like it will not only be a fitting sendoff for Jackman's iteration of the clawed mutant, but also one of the more unique offerings in the superhero movie genre. With such a blockbuster, you naturally expect the studio to go all out on marketing and promotion, and for the especially hardcore Logan/X-Men fans out there, there are six special posters being released that you have the opportunity to obtain.
Six comic book artists gathered together to illustrate custom, limited edition Logan homage posters, but you can't get these just anywhere. These posters can only found at specific locations across the United States. Take a look at the list below to find out which artist's poster will be available at which theater. By the way, those locations correspond with the route Wolverine will take in the movie.
Art Adams at Cinemark 20 and XD in El Paso, Texas
Nate Powell at Regal Spotlight Stadium 14 in Norman, Oklahoma
Becky Cloonon at Warren East in Wichita, Kansas
Jeff Lemire at Grand Island 7 in Grand Island, Nebraska
Babs Tarr at Carmike 10 in Rapid City, South Dakota
Bill Sienkiewicz at the Grand 6 in Williston, North Dakota
Can't make it to any of these locations? Not to worry, you don't have to go home empty-handed. You can get a free mini-poster with each ticket purchased on the Atom Tickets website or app. This is only happening for a limited time and while supplies last, so if any of the above posters look good to you, you'll either want to get to those theaters or get your ticket off Atom as soon as possible. Regardless, having comic book artist illustrate posters for a highly-anticipated comic book movie is cool by itself, but to make them specifically available at places that follow along the route in Logan is quite clever.
Taking place in the near future, Logan will follow an aged and weary Wolverine whose healing factor isn't working as well as it once did. While taking care of Professor Charles Xavier, who has slowly become unstable, Wolverine suddenly finds himself protecting a young girl named Laura, who is "very much like him," from an organization called Transigen. While at first unwilling to take the girl under his wing, the eponymous protagonist eventually has to go on the run with her and Professor X as they're hunted down by Donald Pierce and the Reavers. Other characters slated to appear include Transigen's surgical head Zander Rice and the pale mutant Caliban.
Logan slashes its way into theaters on March 3.
