For the past few months, the official Instagram of “Logan” has been releasing a series black-and-white photos – some are merely portraits, while others are quite cryptic such as the bullet-riddled limousine that many believed will be Professor X’s unfortunate death.
This time, we have yet another mysterious image revealing a number of equipment and bottles that are supposedly for used medical nature. The picture, titled “Supply”, hints that viewers can expect to see some scientific surgery while one of the devices may actually be used to inject mutant powers into X-23.
If you remember during the end credits scene in “X-Men: Apocalypse”, an unidentified man was seen carrying a vial containing Wolverine’s blood; which will in turn be used create the mutant clone X-23. Having said that, the surgical instruments and anaesthetics could also be used to improve Wolverine and Professor X’s condition in the wake of the battle.
Judging from the promos thus far, the relationship between the clawed mutants promises to be fasinating. We already know from the trailer that Wolverine will rescue X-23 from a shadowy military group and their partnership may involve into something more paternal.
In the comics, X-23 was both a member of X-Men and X-Force. She ultimately takes over for Wolverine at the time of his death. It’ll be interesting to see if the movie version of X-23 will take over the mantle somewhere down the line.
“Logan” is slated to hit theatres on 3rd March 2017.
