Wish I had little bit of Logan's healing powers: Hugh Jackman

03 March, 2017, 01:06 | Author: Kristopher Anderson

But even critics would agree that "Logan" is a dramatic movie, as it has shown more depth for the iconic character.

Australian actor Hugh Jackman promoted his new Wolverine film yesterday in Beijing saying that the characters in Logan should be played by many people in the future.

It's 2029, and the erstwhile Wolverine - whom Jackman has played nine times in all since Bryan Singer's X-Men - is an older, emptier mutant. Who's going to replace Jackman in the role - because there is no way Fox is giving up their most lucrative franchise. "Logan" is not a kids' movie.

But Logan's attempts to hide from the world abruptly end when a woman appears with an urgent request that Logan shepherd a special young girl, Laura, to safety. This is a film that takes a couple of the most beloved characters of the X-Men mythos and shows us a tragic and very real side of them, which is oddly refreshing after years of watching Fox try to chase Marvel's brand of poppy success to little avail. He isn't interested, but the appearance of the menacing cyborg Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) helps convince him to undertake the journey to get Laura to safety so that she can hopefully meet up with other young mutants. But that he'd play a comic-book tough guy who chomps cigars and sinks his claws into bad guys' faces? Imagine Wolverine's powers in a pint-sized, ponytailed package.

"Logan" is set in the year 2029, and shows Hugh Jackman's character old and exhausted of the pains of the world.

And Jackman doubly delivers as Wolverine. King Khan back then had said, "I have seen a lot of Hugh's films and also his work on TV".

Beyond the claws, there's also some cutting-edge vehicle play, including a throw-down between a limo, two motorcycles and a barbed-wire fence.

Mangold approaches the story as a western, directly quoting Shane and referencing The Shootist here and there. Shah Rukh Khan revealed to Hugh Jackman of being quite a super fan of the cult superhero, Wolverine.
