Fueled by “Amazing Grace,” Logan brought out its Super Bowl claws with a new spot today — and the 20th Century Fox pic let the action do the talking. The fast-moving ad showed Hugh Jackman’s mutant in full battle mode as well as Patrick Stewart’s Professor X fighting his own battles and Dafne Keen’s X-23 showing her stripes so to speak.
Last year the studio touted two of its Marvel titles, Deadpool and X-Men: Apocalypse, during the NFL’s big game. This year it’s Logan, which kicks up the Wolverine series a notch to an R-rating in the wake of fanboys hungering for more blood and guts among their men in tights on the screen — they sure got some red meat in today’s spot.
More of that when the James Mangold-helmed Logan opens on March 3.
