Spoilers! Major, huge spoilers for ‘Logan’ follow, so be warned and turned back if you’re yet to see the critically acclaimed superhero drama. ‘Logan’ director James Mangold has confirmed that he sowed the seeds for the new film’s heart-rending ending four years in his first X-Men spin-off ‘The Wolverine’.
What would make the already pretty flipping moody X-Men movie ‘Logan’ even moodier? Taking out all the colour, that’s what. And according to director James Mangold, that could well be the plan. Asked by a fan to get right on converting the movie to monochrome on Twitter, he replied to the affirmative, saying simply: “Workin’ on it.” @AdamMcDee Workin' on it.
Hugh Jackman returns for his last hurrah as Wolverine in ‘Logan’ this week, and it’s unlike any other superhero movie you’ve ever seen. It also feels very much like a James Mangold film with more in common with ‘3:10 to Yuma’ and ‘Cop Land’ thematically than it does even with his previous X-Men outing, 2013’s ‘The Wolverine’. The director credits the film’s singular tone and vision on the freedom granted by 20th Century Fox’s which allowed him to make a film that stood apart from the X-Men universe.
It took just one trailer for Hugh Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine in ‘Logan’ to go from being a film many struggled to get excited about, to one they couldn’t wait to see.

After 17 years of playing Charles Xavier, Sir Patrick Stewart has decided to call time on his tenure as the iconic X-Men leader. The 76-year-old actor says his performance as an aged Professor X in ‘Logan’ will be his last outing in 20th Century Fox’s popular superhero franchise, calling it “the most perfect way to say au revoir” to the character. Hugh Jackman has long stated that ‘Logan’ would be his final film playing Wolverine, but Stewart admits he only decided it would be his last outing after seeing the film play at the Berlin Film Festival.
