The popular X-Men mutant Wolverine showed he still has the skills to be the best, as his film Logan landed at the top of the box office this weekend.

"Logan" is one of the best cinematic experiences for fans of the comics and the "X-Men" movies.

"Logan" is a rendezvous with the ageing protagonist of the league of X-Men, who is in the twilight of his no gun nonsense, "bare-knuckle" fighting days. Fortunately, with the studio allowing the production of an R-rated Logan, a much more hard-hitting and gritty version of the character was finally unveiled.

One year after 21st Century Fox Inc.'s FOX, +0.81% movie studio opened "Deadpool" to a phenomenal $132.4 million, it debuted "Logan", starring Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, to a strong $85.3 million in the US and Canada, according to studio estimates. The relationship between Wolverine and Professor Xavier has always been one of father and son and at the core of what Logan is about, family. The two powerful heroes are displayed well past their prime and beaten down, with scenes showing Stewart's professor X having seizures and Jackman's Logan aging and becoming ill, it has a very odd tone. Logan (Jackman), who no longer bears the name Wolverine, lives on the outskirts of the U.S./Mexico border with Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart). Regardless of which situation it was, Jackman's portrayal of Wolverine usually provides a strong impact.

So a Logan sequel is at least theoretically possible, but the most likely version will revolve around X-23 rather than Logan.

As per The Entertainment Weekly, director James Mangold first came up with the idea that Logan should die at the end of the new film. According to Mangold, it's because Logan should be treated as its own conclusive story.

Chris Aronson, Fox's domestic distribution chief talked about the film's success in a statement in which he said, "The movie is one of the truest movies to the source material in the comic book universe that's ever been done".
