Logan Clip Teases X-23's Brutal Origins

A new “found footage” clip leading up to Logan’s release gives us a birds-eye view of what the hell happened to X-23... and it’s not pretty.

The young Wolverine clone (played by Dafne Keen) has a horrific and violent origin story, much like her genetic predecessor, and it’s fully on display here. We see her genetic creation, then she’s in surgery as her claws are bonded with adamantium, and finally she recoils in horror upon learning she can heal herself. It’s just one part of what’s sure to be a powerful portrayal of the mutant who could take Wolverine’s mantle once Hugh Jackman retires.


I’m particularly excited to see how her and Logan’s relationship develops over the course of the film, since her comic book history involves her trying to get revenge on her genetic predecessor for causing her to have such a shitty life. But he’s basically the closest thing she has to a father, and the only one who knows exactly what she’s going through, so things are sure to get complicated. Logan comes out March 1.
