In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Logan screenwriter Scott Frank compared talked about why the new film is better than The Wolverine.
“We didn’t have to connect it to any larger “universe.” Or as Jim keeps saying, “we didn’t have to sell Happy Meals.” And so that was great. Whereas, the last one, my favorite part is where he’s in the middle of rural Japan and with this woman and being a human being and feeling what it’s like to be a human being. But we’re not there very long before we’re back to giant robots and stuff. And then it becomes just another superhero movie with a lot of CG stuff. And we were trying to avoid that this time around and the studio had changed studio heads and they were very much into the idea of trying something new, because otherwise what’s the point? The only way these movies have value is if they become about something else. They can’t all about saving the world.”
