If you've seen director James Mangold's brutal, heartbreaking Logan, you know it doesn't have a whole lot of things in common with Richard Donner's aw-shucks approach to Superman in the late '70s. But that doesn't mean Wolverine's farewell didn't draw some inspiration from the Man of Steel's classic stories.
Logan put a bow not just on Wolverine's story but also on the X-Men's story in a lot of ways. But, despite his apparent retirement, Patrick Stewart is still leaving the door open for Professor X to pop back up in a few places.
James Mangold's Logan provided a very tangible ending to Wolverine's story, but in the world of modern comic book movies, that doesn't mean we still won't get a sequel down the line. But, how would that work?
One of Logan's greatest "unresolved" questions revolved around what the heck happened to the X-Men. Although never specifically stated, it's been heavily implied that a certain someone may have been responsible for the whole team's demise.
James Mangold made one heck of a good movie in Logan, and he actually managed to keep most of the details under wraps in the process. But it wasn't easy — and he had some choice words for at least one reporter who was aiming to break some scoops about the production.
