James Mangold Reveals Alternate Opening for 'Logan' That Got Cut
Logan obviously borrowed more than a few ideas from the Old Man Logan comic. In the comic Wolverine kills all the X-Men although he was being mind-controlled by Mysterio. Mangold and his team of writers wanted this same scene but done with Professor X (Patrick Stewart).
James Mangold’s Logan presents to us a broken world with damaged people. The first line of film, "Fuck", is blurted out with a sense of weariness that hovers over this world. It also lays the groundwork for a series that has been waiting 17 years for an R-rating. It doesn’t take long into the running time for the film to unleash its full violent splendour affirming its departure from superhero movie PG-13 norm.
'Logan' Sets March Opening Record for R-Rated Film
Logan has pulled in $88.3 million at the U.S. box office in its opening weekend, belting out X-Men: Apocalypse's $65.8 million and becoming the top R-rated opening in March history.
It’s The End of an Era. 17 years ago, “X-Men” launched the superhero movie genre as we know it. And now, its breakout star Hugh Jackman is saying goodbye to his iconic Wolverine character in “Logan”. It’s Jackman’s third Wolverine spinoff movie, and a commendable swan song.
Logan (2017) - Review
Closing Old Wounds. — In 2000 Hugh Jackman was cast in Bryan Singer’s X-Men, a film that almost single handedly launched the now hugely popular superhero genre into the 21st Century and was a role the Australian actor would occupy for the next 17 years across 9 films. The latest and reportedly final time Jackman will pop his Adamantium claws is now upon us in the form of Logan, the character’s third solo outing. Few would deny that Jackman truly made the role his own. Reports of his initial casting in late 1999 were met with cries of derision from fans of the Marvel Comics from which the Canadian mutant was borne. Jackman was a good foot taller than his fictional counterpart who was known for being small in stature for which he more than made up for with his mutant healing factor, heightened senses, indestructible Adamantium laced skeleton and trademark berserker rage.

Logan (2017) - Trailer #2
One Last Time... — The latest trailer for Fox's upcoming Wolverine movie, Logan has dropped and this time there's far more of an emphasis on the character of Laura Kinney/X-23 played by Dafne Keen who looks to be every bit as effective a killing machine as Hugh Jackman's Logan. The same rugged almost modern day western tone is present and judging by this latest trailer it's still on course to be this years equivalent of 2016's Deadpool, an R-rated comic book adaptation that pulls no punches.

Mangold has stating that this movie does follows Days of Future Past epilogue, trying to keep some form of the timeline in tacked. Another question that we all asked was that of the Logans healing factor. One one scene we see Logan shirtless in a bathroom cover in scars, he does appear to be sore and full of pain. Mangold explained "The simple idea was that his body would start to get a little more ravaged with a kind of tattooing of past battles, lacerations that remain of previous conflicts.”Last but not least, there is the matter of X-23. Now we haven't fully been told that the new actress Dafne Keane will be playing our beloved X-23, but the trailer does seem to be pointing in that direction. James went on the record by saying "I think what this film is about in many ways is family. From there out I’d let everyone figure out what we’re up to on their own, at least at this early stage.” Logan looks to deliver a perfect send off for the fan favorite character and the beloved Hugh Jackman.
