The new logo teaser for "Logan" has a new twist in it.
Over the past weeks, photo leaks of Hugh Jackman's new 20th Century Fox movie have been circulating and they are all in black and white. This time, the new photo leak was released in full color. It had enough color to catch everyone's attention since fans can see Logan carrying a girl mutan, X-23, played by actress Dafne Keen.
According to Comingsoon.net, "Logan" director James Mangold spoke about the overall nature of the film. Mangold emphasizes their goal to make everything as realistic as possible. They even made a tedious effort to tone down on the gloss and greenscreen.
"If you're on the make for a hyper-choreographed gravity defying, city-block destroying CF f***athin, this ain't your movie," said Mangold.
If Logan/Wolverine has been featured in high cinematic effects in the previous "X-Men" films, his solo film, "Logan" would be a lot more grounded as it will focus on Logan's deep history. The movie will also feature Logan's vulnerability at the beginning.
Hugh Jackman agrees with Mangold's storytelling. He said that it is important for the film to feature "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."
Earlier this year, Mangold teased the logo of the film as well as the second page of the screenplay.
In the screenshot of the film, fans saw the rawness of Logan in the movie. Considering that the film is Rated R, there were some expletive terms right off the bat. The 2nd page of the screenplay hints a possibility of death.
Moreover, Professor X, played by Patrick Stewart, will be in the film as well. Though this is a big comeback from the "original" Professor X, the actor said the fans will be seeing an unexpected take on the character.
Speaking with ITV, Stewart said this might be the "end of the franchise" for him.
"I would imagine this is probably the end of this franchise for me. But the thing about science fiction and fantasy is that you can never, ever say it's the end, it's over," said Sir Patrick Stewart.
As for Jackman, he said the same could be expected of his character. There will be a "very different tone, and hopefully different to anything we've ever done before."
"Logan" is set to release on March 3, 2017.
