With just over two months to go before the 2017 superhero season gets underway with the release of Logan, director James Mangold has been discussing the film, and how he hopes it will provide the perfect send off for Hugh Jackman in his role as Wolverine by offering something different to the standard superhero blockbuster.
“Logan is an attempt to bring an end to Hugh’s amazing line of performances as Wolverine,” says Mangold, who is reuniting with Jackman after directing him in The Wolverine. “And the ambition of doing that is to try and make an ‘adult film’ about Wolverine. To make a movie for grown-ups. We’re not trying to make a movie that [satisfies] everyone. We’re trying to make a movie that stands out and is different because it’s kind of a grown-up drama that also features intense action.”
We’ll soon get our next glimpse of Logan, with a new trailer expecting to arrive mid-month.
Logan is being helmed by The Wolverine director James Mangold and will see Hugh Jackman joined in the cast by Patrick Stewart as Professor X, along with new additions Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Elise Neal. It is set for release on March 3rd, 2017.
