James Mangold Explains Why Wolverine’s Iconic Yellow Suit Didn’t Make It Into Logan

1 hour ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Old Man LoganMark Millar and Steve McNiven’s brooding eight-issue comic book, was consistently name-dropped throughout the course of development on James Mangold’s Logan, as the writer-director went about crafting a somber, yet fitting finale for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine.

The result? One of the more nuanced, compelling superhero dramas to claw its way onto the scene in recent memory, according to our own Matt Donato, and the critical consensus reveals that Logan is the moody, R-rated Wolverine vehicle fans have been frothing for since Jackman first unsheathed those adamantium claws more than a decade ago. But soon after Hugh Jackman took to Twitter to tease “The Original” Wolvie back in January, there’s been another moment of potential fan service hot on everyone’s lips: Wolverine slipping into that iconic yellow suit.

Turns out the fan-favorite outfit has no place in Logan whatsoever – and that’s even »

Logan Director James Mangold Believes Wolverine's Classic Costume Doesn't Make Sense On Film

3 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ever since the very first X-Men film, comic book fans have been waiting in anticipation for the moment that Hugh Jackman would suit up in a comic-accurate costume as Wolverine. 17 years and eight (soon to be nine) films later, the classic yellow suit has remained unworn and pretty much unseen, appearing as the contents of a suitcase in a deleted scene from 2013's The Wolverine. While some fans are still holding out hope for some last-minute saving grace in Jackman's final film, Logan, director James Mangold recently told Screen Rant that he thinks the suit works against who Logan is as a character, and that he's convinced fans would not be happy if Jackman ever did wear it in a film. "I always feel a certain contingent of fans who are yearning for it. But the biggest block I’ve had – I’m willing to take the heat for it – is that, »

James Mangold talks Logan and Wolverine’s classic yellow costume

4 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few weeks ago Hugh Jackman tweeted out an image of the classic Wolverine superhero costume, leading to speculation that this could feature in Jackman’s latest, and potentially final, X-Men outing Logan.

This ended up amounting to nothing, as there are no superhero costumes at all in Logan [read our review here], and ScreenRant recently got a chance to speak to director James Mangold about this creative decision, with Mangold stating:

“I always feel a certain contingent of fans who are yearning for it. But the biggest block I’ve had – I’m willing to take the heat for it – is that, I can never get past, being a writer for these movies as well, that Logan is the least narcissistic of all the superheroes, any kind I can think of – Marvel, DC or anywhere else. What I mean by that is, who puts a special branded outfit on when they do good deeds? »

Meanwhile, a series of tweets from Alamo Drafthouse Brooklyn’s senior marketing & promotions manager Mike Sampson have revealed that 20th Century Fox has added three minutes to the original runtime of the film, leading to speculation that a post-credits scene may have been added following last week’s press screenings…

Logan tracking a $60 million domestic opening weekend

19 February 2017 1:04 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The reviews are in, with many hailing it as one of the best superhero movies of all time (read Rob Kojder’s ★★★★ review here), and with just two weeks to go before it opens in cinemas, the first box office tracking numbers for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine swan song Logan have now arrived online.

According to Forbes, the James Mangold-directed sequel is tracking a domestic opening weekend of between $55 and $60 million, which would put it ahead of the $53 million debut of The Wolverine, but down from the $85 million opening haul of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Of course, as we’ve seen time and time again, tracking numbers can be wildly inaccurate, and given the glowing reviews, Logan may have a chance of topping the $70.8 million opening of 300 back in 2007, which remains the record debut for an R-rated movie in the month of March.

I’m sorry everybody… I didn’t like Logan

19 February 2017 11:54 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis gives his thoughts on Hugh Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine, the incredibly well received Logan

Now that’s a loaded title! Perfectly designed to stand out amongst all the glowing Logan reviews in your MySpace timeline. Some will call it ‘clickbait’. Those people probably don’t understand what ‘clickbait’ is.

I write the title with a heavy heart, though. I wanted to love Logan. Everybody else seemed to. It’s a superhero Western with blood and swearing and Jean-Luc Picard. It’s like James Mangold looked up my Netflix viewing history, saw High Noon, Star Trek: The Next Generation and RuPaul’s Drag Race and thought, ‘let’s make a Wolverine solo movie specifically for this guy!’

Actually, ignore that whole RuPaul’s Drag Race part.

My reasons for not enjoying Logan are coming, but before we get there, I need to devote at least 500 words to over-establishing context. »

Weta Workshop unveils Ghost in the Shell collectible figures for The Major and Robo Geisha

18 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Weta Workshop has revealed its upcoming 1/4th scale mixed media figures for The Major and Robo Geisha from the live-action adaptation of the celebrated manga series Ghost in the Shell. The collectibles, which are both limited to 500 pieces, are available to pre-order now, priced at £359.20 each and are expected to ship in March in time for the film’s release; take a look below…

The Major’s thermoptic suit was to be a centrepiece of Ghost in the Shell and represented a benchmark for Weta Workshop’s creativity and innovation. Taking digital scans of actress Scarlett Johansson, the Workshop built an extraordinary physical effects suit unlike anything it had attempted before. Cast in a smooth, translucent silicone over a mesh fabric, it adhered to The Major like a second skin; a piece of technology, both practical and iconic. The artists of Weta Workshop have recreated Major’s stunning suit for you in this collectible statue, »

Spoilers: Does Hugh Jackman Finally Don The Classic Yellow Costume In Logan?

17 February 2017 3:03 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Logan premiered earlier today at the Berlin International Film Festival, and the first wave of reviews have been overwhelmingly positive. Hugh Jackman has maintained that this movie will mark his final appearance as Wolverine, of course, and as a result, we've all been wondering if this might be the release which finally sees him don the classic yellow and blue (or brown) suit.  After all, James Mangold teased it in The Wolverine, while the final Logan trailer featured a comic book with that in it. Well, it appears as if we can forget seeing it in a flashback or the present day as We Got This Covered reports that the yellow suit does not make a physical appearance.  The only time it shows up is in that comic book, and the mutant quickly tells the young X-23 that the team never donned colourful spandex costumes like those featured there.

‘Logan’ Review: Hugh Jackman Puts the ‘R’ in Wolverine

17 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The worldwide success of last year’s “Deadpool” has apparently opened the door for R-rated superhero adventures, and director James Mangold (“The Wolverine,” “3:10 to Yuma”) takes full advantage. Our hero (played once again by Hugh Jackman) drops an F-bomb in his first line of dialogue, and soon thereafter he’s fighting off some would-be car thieves by sinking his claws directly into their skulls. But the screenplay — credited to Mangold, Scott Frank and Michael Green — feels more like the product of the guy who wrote “Green Lantern” (Green) than the one who wrote “Out of Sight” (Frank). It’s a perfectly. »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Logan’

17 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Logan,” the third and final chapter in the “Wolverine” series (though it’s the 10th — count ’em — “X-Men” film, and not necessarily the last), opens in 2029 on the outskirts of El Paso, where Logan (Hugh Jackman) steps out of the beat-up limo he now drives for a living to confront the goons who are trying to strip the car. To say that Logan looks the worse for wear would be putting it mildly. He’s a drunk, with mottled skin and his trademark sci-fi muttonchops grown into a scraggly beard. (The beard looks like a virus that’s going around, as if Jackman were warming up to play Mel Gibson.)

Optics aside, it’s Logan’s mutant prowess that’s really been tamped down. In any previous installment, a skirmish with mere mortals wouldn’t have been much of a contest, but Logan’s razory knuckle-blades no longer pop with the same alacrity, »

Logan: Lrm's Review of the New Wolverine Movie

17 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

After two solo movies that didn’t quite connect with the fans, director James Mangold returns for his follow-up to 2013’s The Wolverine, with Logan taking the basic premise of the “Old Man Logan” storyline for what is likely to be Hugh Jackman’s very last Wolverine movie.

Set years in the future in a timeline in which the future of Days of Future Past never took place and mutants are few and far between, Logan has given up on being any sort of superhero, grown out his beard and is working as limo driver “James Howlett” (Logan’s birthname, in case you didn’t know) in Texas.  As we meet him, a street gang makes the mistake of trying to steal his hubcaps and when Logan intervenes and is shot in the chest with a shotgun, he unleashes the claws and goes crazy on the gang.

Movie Review – Logan (2017)

17 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Logan, 2017.

Directed by James Mangold

Starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Daniel Bernhardt and Elise Neal.

Synopsis:

In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.

“Jesus, it breaks my heart seeing you like this.”

That’s probably not the quote word for word, but as Donald Pierce (head of security for a research facility up to no good and a southern drawl speaking cyborg leader played by Boyd Holbrook of Narcos rising fame) and his army of mercenaries physically have their way with Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman reprising the role possibly for one last rodeo) beating the crap out of him, »

‘Logan’ Review: Hugh Jackman Saves The Best Wolverine Movie For Last

17 February 2017 1:29 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The year is 2029, and the mutant formerly known as the Wolverine isn’t quite as invincible as he used to be. After being alive for almost 200 years, he’s finally starting to show his age. He’s haunted by something from his past (you’ll have to see the previous movies to find out what, or re-visit them to remember), and he hurts people in his dreams. He’s rotting from the inside out, he needs reading glasses, and his healing powers can’t keep up. He’s saved the world like eight times over, but he’s now a glorified Las Vegas Uber driver who cares more about his limo than he does his life. He may be the one guy on Earth who can’t drink himself to death, but that certainly hasn’t stopped him from trying. He’s pretty much a Johnny Cash song with adamantium claws. »

Logan Review

17 February 2017 1:29 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

From the first scene, from the very first word in fact, it is clear that Logan is far from just another comic book movie. It may be the latest X-Men film to the fans but James Mangold and Hugh Jackman have created something distinct and different. We saw hints of what they wanted to achieve in their 2013 film The Wolverine but Logan is purposefully named. The raw narrative drive and the unrelenting violence make a solid foundation for a new type of Wolverine movie. This is not your comic book hero come to life, this is real life with all the pain and pathos that comes with it.

Logan is a very different beast. It shrinks its focus to a fine point, it collapses the worldwide grab of its superhero brethren to an almost claustrophobic hold. This film is less about saving the world, and far more about saving yourself. »

Wolverine’s Yellow Suit Isn’t In Logan, But It Is Referenced

17 February 2017 1:29 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In just a few weeks, Hugh Jackman will don the adamantium claws one final time to play Wolverine in James Mangold’s Logan. It’s truly the end of an era, as the actor first portrayed the iconic mutant back in 2000, and from what early reviews have been saying, the threequel is a fitting conclusion for the beloved character.

Given that it’s his last time on screen though, many have been hoping that maybe, just maybe, the classic yellow suit would show up. After all, it was teased in a deleted scene from The Wolverine (see the clip above) and for a while now, we’ve been hearing that it might make an appearance in Logan. Hugh Jackman even hinted at it the other week when he Tweeted out a photo of a Wolvie action figure sporting the costume in question. Unfortunately, however, it turns out that the actor »

Logan review

17 February 2017 10:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Spoiler-free: Hugh Jackman returns to play Wolverine, and Logan is a bloody, bold turn for the X-Men movies.

Other

About a third of the way through Logan, the film formerly referred to as The Wolverine 3, Hugh Jackman’s title character is in a car. He's desperately trying to make his escape, hurtling towards a fence that stands in his way. We’ve seen this lots of times before in the movies: reality be damned as the fence goes flying, and the car effortlessly makes it escape.

But not here.

In Logan, the fence does its job. The car is stopped, and stopped suddenly. Our hero – appreciating the film frequently questions if he’s a hero at all – needs a plan B. It’s a small detail, a little subversion of a cinema cliché. Yet it’s indicative of what director James Mangold has tried to do with his follow-on from The Wolverine. »

As Logan draws closer and closer to its release date, the cast and crew of the Wolverine solo movie are out doing the press rounds, and speaking to We Got This Covered, Logan director James Mangold spoke about the possibility of further developing the future X-Men world by doing a film centered the young mutant X-23.

“I think Dafne [Keen] is incredible in the film and I would love to see another film about that character and that’s certainly something I’d be involved in,” said Mangold. “For me that was one of the big additions I brought to the table, this decision to try to make the film about family and to try to insert Laura and the pressures that would put and the idea about Charles ailing.”
