Sir Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman shed tear at Logan screening

Posted March 07, 2017

Cape Town - For anyone who is a fan of X-Men, the tormented, but gentle-natured Logan, or Wolverine, is one of the most hard to love characters from the group. Amongst the nine movies, Logan features one of the best performances of actor Hugh Jackman.

Logan, which takes place more than 50 years after the events of 2014's X-Men: Days of Future Past, sees Logan aging, weary, vulnerable and hiding from the world - until he crosses paths a mysterious young female mutant with powers similar to his own. This opened the door for another unknown who had impressed them at auditions: Jackman.

In his last outing with star Hugh Jackman in 2013's The Wolverine, Mangold added a mid-credits scene that showed Logan being warned of a new threat to the mutant race by Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart).

Logan debuted last month at the Berlin Film Festival with leading men Jackman and Patrick Stewart in attendance, shining a global media spotlight on the movie, which Mangold said he hoped would reach a wide audience with thought-provoking fare.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS: In the near future, a tired Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. Its worldwide total haul was US$783 million - more than any other R-rated film in history. Regardless of which situation it was, Jackman's portrayal of Wolverine usually provides a strong impact.

Logan's abilities as Wolverine are waning - pus oozes from his knuckles when he retracts his Adamantium claws and his body no longer self-heals.

"Logan" also introduces the character Laura, a.k.a. X-23. In fact, there's one element to Logan that makes it seem as if all the previous movies may just be exaggerated comic book fiction.

In the comic books, Wolverine has always been incredibly violent. "Part of the reason I want to do a Deadpool/Wolverine movie is not just because I think the two would light the screen on fire but I genuinely love the guy".
