Logan poster

Normally, when a studio offers us the chance to preview footage from an upcoming film, we’re treated to a handful of clips. In the case of James Mangold‘s Logan, we saw the entire first act — perhaps 30 or 40 minutes of footage. Such a move speaks to 20th Century Fox’s faith in the film, touted as Hugh Jackman‘s very last performance of Wolverine after 17 years. And based on what we saw, that confidence is well placed.

Mangold’s Logan feels unlike any superhero movie in recent movie, and yet its gritty Western vibe feels perfectly suited to Jackman’s world-weary take on the character. If this really is the last time we’ll see his Wolverine, it seems like a fitting end to his tenure. Read our Logan footage review below.

We may, however, finally have some clue as to whom Wolverine will be going up against, thanks to X-Men: Apocalypse. Although the film won’t open in the U.S. for another week, word from overseas is that the end-credits scenes may hold some key information about the villain of Wolverine 3. Obviously, SPOILERS for X-Men: Apocalypse follow.  Read More »
