Most superhero films usually hype up anticipation by inserting a healthy dose of wit and explosions during their marketing campaign.

Logan”, on the other hand, got fans excited by releasing a dark, moody trailer complete with a series of stylish black and white shots that teases new details about the film via the wponx Instagram account. A new promotional image suggests that there won’t be happy ever after for 1 character – Professor X.

The image, which is simply titled “Bullet”, is of the bullet-riddled side of what appears to be Logan’s truck (as seen in the trailer). Beyond the photo, the real information comes in the comments section. As a commentator points out, those bullet holes clustered around the passenger-side door is the back seat where Professor X is sitting during a highway chase scene.

With that in mind, it looks like the assailant had an intended target in mind. Combine that with the fact that a funeral scene takes place early on in the trailer, all signs point to the possibility of Professor X biting the dust. Rumours of the professor’s eminent death have been swirling around for quite some time, and the evidence are falling into place.

Given the direction that 20th Century Fox is moving forward with the franchise, killing off Professor X is a huge sign that we’re heading into a new ear of “X-Men” films with “X-Force” and “New Mutants” acting as spin-offs.

Of course, this is speculation until “Logan” opens in theatres on 3rd March 2017.
