Marvel Entertainment has been producing X-men movies for a long time. In March 2017 it will be releasing its tenth installment of the X-Men film series, which began with the first movie, X-Men (2000). The last movie, the 9th in the series was X-Men: Apocalypse (2016). However, the tenth and latest installment of this movie series, Logan, will look at the life of Wolverine/James “Logan” Howlett / Wolverine: (Hugh Jackman).

Directed by James Mangold, this movie may be the last outing of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. Set in 2029, the movie follows the events occurring after the time from X-Men: Days of Future Past. Logan is facing a dire predicament of losing his mutant ability of healing and is visibly depicted by his aging body. He is also taking care of Professor Xavier who has also aged much. However, apart from Logan and Xavier, the movie’s center of attention character, as depicted by the trailer, will be Laura, a young girl having mutant ability including claws akin to that of Logan. Perhaps the ending of this movie will show the passing of the torch from Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) to another character. However, if Laura is given the task of carrying the torch forward and play a female wolverine in upcoming installments of Wolverine, then that may work as never there has been a female mutant having powers akin to the Wolverine. However, the director/producer/Marvel Entertainment must decide who will fill the vacuum in the X-Men franchise once Hugh Jackman retires from playing Wolverine.
