Today Director James Mangold shared an exclusive clip on his Twitter that introduces us to X-23 from the upcoming Logan film. The clip shows us X-23 (technically Laura as she is referred to in this clip) trapped in the lab that she was created in.
Based off of how the clip was shot, it harks back to the found footage shooting style. Given the fact that the world of Logan focuses on mutants having died out and the government is engaging in problematic experiments like creating mutant children, it makes sense that they would shoot a “revealing” clip like this to be smuggled out and shared on the internet.
The official synopsis of the film is as follows:
In 2024, mutant births are severely in decline, and people aren’t sure why. A government-type operation is turning mutant children into killing machines. From this, Logan emerges as a mentor to a mutant girl, who has two claws instead of his three.
