The Australian actor Hugh Jackman is very excited and emotional at the same time about playing Logan/Wolverine in the final standalone movie of the franchise directed by James Mangold. He has given over a decade of his life to this character, and have played it like a boss. He has been revered by both critics and fans for his masterful performances in successive X-Men and independent Wolverine movies.
Hugh Jackman recently said “I’m really really proud of this movie. I was really keen that I didn’t leave the party feeling like I could dance more. I think I’m pretty much danced out, and I had a great time. It’s been an unbelievable ride, but it feels right.”
It’s almost unimaginable to even think of any other actor besides Hugh Jackman to bring Wolverine character to life. In the last installment, we might see “berserker rage” of Wolverine in Logan. It’s a mental state when Wolverine turns absolutely crazy, goes on a rampage, without thinking about the moral consequences of the act.
It’s confirmed that his character is inspired by “Old Man Logan” story based on a dystopian future where villains finally prevailed after Wolverine was caught in a trap laid down by Mysterio.Previously, the antagonist character had been described as “a relentless, calculating and intense head of Security for a global enterprise who is set against Jackman’s clawed Wolverine/Logan hero”. Well, Boyd Holbrook(of Narcos fame) is a cyborg supervillain Donald Pierce who is running a unit of criminal cyborgs hell-bent on mutant’s blood.
The official synopsis of the movie Logan is as follows:
“In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.”
The movie opens on March 3 directed by James Mangold starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephan Merchant and DafneKeen.
