Matthew Vaughn may already be eyeing a Kingsman trilogy, but back in 2011, he almost helmed an X-Men period-piece trilogy.

Or something of the sort. Vaughn launched the floundering X-Men franchise back into relevancy with, ironically, a flash to the past with 2011’s refreshing and bright X-Men: First Class. The superhero movie was set in the 1960s and was anticipated to be the first of several period-set X-Men movies, with a possible sequel centering around a young Wolverine in the ’70s. But the Kingsman came calling and Bryan Singer returned instead to direct X-Men: Days of Future Past. But that won’t stop Vaughn from being nostalgic for the past.

Logan Film Genre Video Essay

Easily one of the best movies of 2017 so far is the surprisingly emotional comic book movie Logan. As Hugh Jackman‘s final turn as Wolverine, we get a film unlike any comic book blockbuster that came before, and Logan is all the better for it. When looked at as the second bookend of the superhero genre, connected all the way back to the start of the superhero/comic book movie craze that truly began with X-Men back in 2000, Logan becomes the perfect metaphor for how film genres change over time.
