Ever since the X-Men first appeared on the big screen back in 2000, longtime fans of Marvel’s mutants have wanted to see some kind of incarnation of the unique, colorful suits that each member of the team has word in the comics. X-Men: Apocalypse is the closest we’ve come to seeing the X-Men in their signature duds, but that scene didn’t allow Wolverine to suit up in his signature yellow suit. Sadly, despite the tease from the end of The Wolverine (at least in the unleashed edition), we won’t see Hugh Jackman putting on that suit in Logan either.
Director James Mangold explained a few years ago why he didn’t think Wolverine could ever really wear the yellow suit, and with Hugh Jackman making this his last outing as the mutant, it appears we’ll never see it happen.

The early buzz on Logan is not only is it the best solo outing for Hugh Jackman as Wolverine (by leaps and bounds), but it’s one of the best X-Men movies ever made. Hugh Jackman was so dedicated to make this the Wolverine movie fans have wanted for years, he knew this had to be his last outing as the iconic mutant. As he’s been making the publicity rounds for the movie, he’s not even leaving the window open for a possible team up with Deadpool.
On the other end of the spectrum, Sir Patrick Stewart has been saying that he’s not yet ready to retire from playing Professor X in the X-Men franchise. But as the publicity tour for the movie has gone on, it appears the actor has had a change of heart. Sir Patrick Stewart announced himself that he’s retiring from the X-Men franchise, making Logan his last turn as Charles Xavier.

Although Hugh Jackman has made it very clear that Logan will be his last movie as Wolverine, he’s not above indulging in some what-ifs. He hedged his bets when asked about a potential Wolverine / Deadpool movie, and now he’s entertaining the hypothetical possibility of a Wolverine / Avengers movie. No, it’s never going to happen — but Jackman admits that he might have been tempted to stick around if it had been an option. Read More »
Earlier this week, sources indicated that the cut of Logan all the critics saw over the weekend didn’t have a post-credits scene. However, a couple days after that, there was a change in the film’s runtime. 20th Century Fox updated the length of Logan so that it was about three minutes longer than the cut that screened for critics. Then came confirmation that the extension of the runtime was due to a post-credits scene being included, or so we thought.
The same source that previously confirmed the existence of a Logan credits scene has since rescinded that story. But in the same breath, they indicate that while those extra few minutes won’t be spent on a credits scene, fans will still get some kind of treat before the movie starts.

UPDATE: Collider confirms Logan will have an end-credits scene, as rumored. Original story follows.
There are many ways that Logan differentiates itself from most superhero movies, and one of them is its lack of a credits scene. There’s no mid-credits stinger, no special prize for audiences patient enough to sit through to the very end — the film’s just over when it’s over.
Or at least that was the word coming out of early press screenings. Now there’s reason to wonder if the theatrical cut might have an end-credits moment after all. Find out what why below. Read More »
