The marketing campaign of the movie Logan is on its last lap before a big release, and Australian actor Hugh Jackman is very satisfied 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. He is aggressively promoting the film on twitter, recently he released the official synopsis of the movie which 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 character of Wolverine is inspired by “Old Man Logan” story based on a dystopian future where villains finally prevailed after he was caught in a trap laid down by Mysterio. He shared a poster of the movie on social media, and it’s shown Wolverine in a state of extreme anger and fear as if he is trying to protect his family from the bad guys (Donald Pierce, Reavers). It almost confirms the fact that we are likely to 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.
The movie opens on March 3 directed by James Mangold starring Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephan Merchant and Dafne Keen.
