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.

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The same source that previously confirmed the existence of a Logan credits scene has since rescinded that story.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.

As all the trailers for the upcoming Wolverine sequel Logan have indicated, this movie will be much different from what fans have seen before from the adamantium-clad mutant’s solo adventures. Both X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine tried too hard to be X-Men movies in their own way, but Logan is venturing out on its own with an entirely different tone and style, distancing itself from the X-Men franchise as a whole.
Fans should be grateful and thankful that this opportunity that what may end up being Hugh Jackman‘s last outing as Wolverine (unless a Deadpool crossover can bring him back) ended up being something much more bold and daring in the superhero genre. 20th Century Fox was originally very timid about the prospect of doing such a dark Wolverine movie, and once they found out what the thematic elements within the story, they were even worried it would be boring.
