James Mangold Talks Briefly About The Tone Of Logan
With the movie reported to be the last time that longtime Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman will portray the character, expectations are high for the Fox superhero film. Following the critical and box office success of The Wolverine, Mangold’s task is made even more difficult, although the director indicated that the finished product will look very different from previous entries in the franchise:
“The goal was to make something human,” Mangold told the outlet. “We made an effort to scale back on the gloss and greenscreen…If you’re on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying CG f***athon, this ain’t your movie.”
Sir Patrick Stewart also stars in the film, which marks the ninth time that Hugh Jackman has played the character on the big screen. Mangold is directing from a script by David James Kelly.
Little is still known about the film despite its trailer, though we know that the primary villains for the film will include The Reavers as well as Wolverine’s favorite group, Weapon X. It stands to reason that Sinister’s role in the film will be tied to the creation of X-23, the young female clone of Wolverine also along for the film’s road trip.
