Right now, Marvel Cinematic Universe is doggedly jumping through every loop and loophole it can to make the next phase of its cinematic universe bigger and better. With Disney+ shows adding another dimension (lol!) to the mix in addition to the comic book source material, things -- as dark Dr. Strange says in the trailer but not in the movie -- just got out of hand.
Logan takes place somewhere in the future, though things look pretty similar to modern times, politically and socially. Logan now goes by James Howlett, and he's no longer a member of the X-Men -- he's a limousine chauffeur who transports millenial bridal parties and businessmen around by night. During the day, he hides out in an undisclosed location somewhere in Mexico with Caliban (Stephen Merchant) and Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart), whose mental health has been on a steep decline.
