Logan (2017): Hugh Jackman will be coming back for one last Wolverine instalment in the 2017 film Logan which is going to be the tenth instalment in the X-Men film series, as well as the third and final Wolverine solo film following X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) and The Wolverine (2013). The celebrated actor who has been subjected to a tremendous amount of acclaim for his role of the regenerating angry mutant has finally decided to hang his boots for the character’s part after 17 years. But not before one last blast on the big screens.
Logan (2017) is being directed by James Mangold, who co-wrote the screenplay with Michael Green and Scott Frank, from a story by David James Kelly and Mangold. The film is slated to be loosely based on “Wolverine: Old Man Logan”, an eight-issue storyline from the ongoing Wolverine series by writer Mark Millar and artist Steve McNiven, published by Marvel Comics. The film was primarily shot in locations across Louisiana, New Mexico, and Mississippi.
Logan (2017) Latest News
There have been an enormous amount of speculation about how Hugh Jackman‘s last outing as the mutant will be presented, and one thing that has been more or less confirmed as of now is that the forthcoming 2017 movie will be big. And what seems to make it more interesting is the fact that Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool is slated to make a guest appearance in the movie. According to the report, the scene (apparently directed by Deadpool 2 director David Leitch) is likely to be a post-credits tag, which makes a lot more sense than trying to fit Deadpool into Logan more organically. Nevertheless, if Deadpool does appear in Logan, it would actually be Reynolds’ second time playing Deadpool in a Wolverine film after 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Logan (2017) Plot
Although much regarding the plot of Logan has not been confirmed as of now, the upcoming movie will revolve largely around the life of an ageing Logan (whose healing factors and mutant abilities have started to wane significantly) and Charles Xavier as they go through significant attempts to protect a girl who is very similar to Logan while being hunted by sinister forces.
