Marking the final appearance by Jackman as Logan/Wolverine, the film takes its cue from the “old man Logan” comic-book series and sees the mutant in Mexico as he cares for Professor X (Patrick Stewart) whilst hiding from those who mean to bring them both harm.

You can view the reveal “poster” below but here is the official synopsis:
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Directed by James Mangold (The Wolverine), the film co-stars Richard E. Grant (Jackie), Stephen Merchant (The Office), Eric La Salle (E.R.) and Dafne Keen as X-23 and is released on March 3rd.
