The last of Wolverine: Logan leaves a legacy

Posted March 03, 2017

James Mangold's Logan is now showing in theaters.

Mangold was asked on Twitter by a fan if there would be a black and white version of Logan, to which the director simply answered, "Workin' on it". To do the film, Mangold said in a recent phone conversation from New York City, that sort of narrative was a must.

Logan - better known to you and me as the Wolverine - is living in a drunkards hell. "You can nearly cut the trailer in your mind where some character is saying, 'This is the worst we've ever faced, ' and if they don't level a city, they level a continent, and if they don't level a continent, they blow up the Earth, and the threats, the stakes are always so high and global". Just a little bit is fine. "When I was talking to Jerry that day, I was like, Oh, yeah", Hugh said. I'll be really interested to see how I feel about it. So I go back into interviews, three minutes later, [my assistant] comes in, and goes, 'You'll never guess!' And I'm like, 'Yeah, whatever.' It took her a good three minutes to convince me it happened!

Wish I had little bit of Logan's healing powers: Hugh Jackman
Veering away from the standard female superhero trope, she is the most ruthless, savage, and risky character in the film. But even critics would agree that " Logan " is a dramatic movie, as it has shown more depth for the iconic character.

With the new movie being Hugh Jackman's last Wolverine picture as well as the latest Marvel film, it would seem a no-brainer for movie theaters to present it with IMAX's top tier picture. While attempting to seclude himself from the world, Logan is approached by a young mutant with powers extremely similar to his.

When the bad guys with guns show up, Logan takes off with Laura and Charles on an epic road trip to a safe haven that may or may not actually exist. Gone are the cameos that that have defined 20th Century Fox's previous X-Men movies. That much time creates an indelible relationship between character and actor, and if they could meet their alter-egos, they'd want to say thanks.

There was a moment when we were thinking about, as I recall, Jim [Mangold] had an idea where when they were on the run, and they go to the gambling town, there may have been at that point they were going to see [Sabretooth] for help.
