The black and white melancholy shots complete with a Johnny Cash 'Hurt' cover from Nine Inch Nails is incredibly fresh from Marvel. Indicating that the CGI bells and whistles will be toned down for something with more heart and substance. Logan's journey from mid 1800s boy living post American Civil War to the lonesome and battle-weary survivor with metal skeleton has been a long time coming.

Pieces Coming Together As The Hero's Powers Fade
The Wrap explains that we know 6 key facts about Logan before it hits the red carpet. The R-rated installment will be the second of its type from Marvel, as director James Mangold gave an insight into where the character is mentally and physically in the future setting.
“As for our hero, well, he’s older now and it’s clear his abilities aren’t what they once were," said Mangold. "He’s fading on the inside and his diminished healing factor keeps him in a constant state of chronic pain — hence booze as the painkiller.”
Mr. Sinister could feature as a villain and Patrick Stewart will reprise his role one last time as Professor X. As for the rest, more will be revealed in time. But it will be such a joy to soak it in when it happens, maybe it is best to leave the rest a mystery.
