It looks like Hugh Jackman’s final Wolverine movie will be telling us a more personal story than we first thought. in an amazing new interview with Empire Magazine, Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold discuss what they’ve tried to focus on in this movie, that makes it different to the ones before it.
Obviously from the look of the trailer, and the images that have been released Logan is going to be a very different kind of superhero movie. Mangold seems to be telling a more personal story for the character, one that doesn’t include a bunch of green screens and special effects.
See what director James Mangold told Empire below:
“The goal was to make something human, we made an effort to scale back on the gloss and greenscreen.”
Hugh Jackman seems more than excited to tell a more personal Wolverine story. The actor has now starred in nine X-Men movies and will make his leave when Logan lands in theaters. See what Jackman had to say to Empire below:
“It’s essential you see this as the story of a man who is struggling with mortality and legacy, and whether the world has been better off with him or without him.”
“Set in the future of 2024, Logan and Professor Charles Xavier must cope with the loss of the X-Men when a corporation lead by Nathaniel Essex is destroying the world leaving it to destruction, with Logan’s healing abilities slowly fading away and Xavier’s Alzheimer’s forcing him to forget. Logan must defeat Nathaniel Essex with the help of a young girl named Laura Kinney, a female clone of Wolverine.”
