Watch: Manchester United and 20th Century Fox collaborate to make a pretty bold comparison
SPORT

Manchester United have certainly become known as a blockbuster club – so it was only a matter of time before they started making trailers for their players.

With superhero epic Logan set for release next month, United teamed up with 20th Century Fox to produce a rather special sign of support for their captain Wayne Rooney.

In fairness, you’ve got to applaud United for the level of support they’ve shown to Rooney with this. Although he broke the club’s goalscoring record last month, he’s come under a huge amount of pressure for his performances over the past year or so.

The film comparison made here is the latest release from Marvel in Hugh Jackman’s saga as Wolverine from the X-Men.

The film sees Jackman playing an aged version of the superhero performing some final heroics, in what has been touted as Jackman’s last time in the role. With some reports linking 31-year-old Rooney with an exit from United – perhaps the comparison could prove to be a more apt than ever anticipated.
