Last week, the first trailer for Hugh Jackman‘s final Wolverine movie, Logan was released, and we were blown away by it’s presentation and the appropriately used cover of “Hurt” by Johnny Cash. But just because Logan doesn’t look like any superhero film we’ve seen before doesn’t mean it can’t be a bit more animated!
A YouTube user by the name of Philysteak has recreated the Logan trailer using footage from X-Men: The Animated Series and X-Men: Evolution mixed with the audio from Jackman’s Wolverine and Patrick Stewart‘s Professor X. In keeping with the plot of Logan, only out of costume shots of Wolverine were used and none of the other X-Men appeared in this clip. But the video did get a nice moment from the graveyard of the X-Men scene; which was part of the Days of Future Past adaptation in the first X-Men animated series in the ’90s.
There’s very little footage from X-Men: Evolution here, but it was necessary to include because that was the show that introduced us to Laura, a.k.a. X-23; Wolverine’s younger, female clone. It’s also fitting, because Logan will mark the first time that X-23 has appeared in live-action, and she had one of the most emotional sequences in the trailer. Even that scene made it into this recreation.
