Professor X's Humanity is Slowly Killing Him in 'Logan'

"X-Men Origins: Wolverine" was a slap in the face to fans of the comics and "The Wolverine" made too many mistakes to be considered a good movie. Logan is a well done film that is dark and dreary but worth your time. His most recent appearance in Logan will be his ninth and final stint as the clawed Canadian. Though Fox has attempted to carve out a bub-less lane for the X-Men films to expand beyond the spiky haired tough guy, he's still an icon.

Hugh Jackman's last outing as Wolverine is loved by everyone and that is reflected well at the worldwide box office.

Logan may be R-Rated, but it's not for the reasons you might be thinking of.

The music fits the graphic nature of the film.

On the other hand, Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart have now both publicly stated that they will not be portraying these characters again. The creators used a lot of material from the "Old Man Logan" storyline where Wolverine is one of the only mutants left after several years. At this point you've got more chance of Batman popping up in the MCU, but that hasn't stopped the two from throwing some friendly barbs at each other. I can tell you right now that from the response to Logan, an X-23 sequel is something that fans more than likely wanted yesterday.

For those who don't know, in the comic books nefarious forces used Logan's DNA to create a young female version of him - adamantium claws and all. Every down moment is one where the movie serves the characters. Back in 2000, director Bryan Singer was filling his cast for the very first X-Men movie and the casting rumors for Wolverine included a number of big names including Edward Norton, Russell Crowe and Keanu Reeves. Charles saves her by having a seizure, which puts everyone in the area in excruciating statis-except for Wolverine and X-23, who aren't affected as badly, which explains how Wolverine survived the Westchester Incident.
