The ending of Logan is also the reason why the actor decided it will be his last one. The film only had a budget of $97 million, which makes the earnings impressive. He has been part of the pop culture landscape for the past 17 years. Keen does a terrific job of bringing this comic book character to life.
"The only way we came out with a different movie was trying to do it differently", Mangold told the Toronto Sun.
Clearly the r-rated take on Jackman's troubled hero has proved a draw, this latest iteration from director James Mangold being the most brooding and brutal yet.
After a huge Thursday night of previews, Fox's R-rated superhero movie Logan made $33 million at the U.S. box office on Friday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
He said: "A week ago, Friday night in Berlin, the three of us sat, watching the movie".
Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos not letting Cristiano Ronaldo off defensive duties
Scoring goals could be a problem for Real Madrid in this match, with Ronaldo , Gareth Bale and Alvaro Morata all out of this game. There were goals from James Rodriguez and Marco Asensio, two players who had fallen out of the first-choice squad.
I should be clear that while this is Jackman's last turn as Wolverine, don't think for one minute that we've seen the last of the clawed berserker on the big screen. That sends him down a road that he never thought possible. But whatever has started will mutually end, Logan leaves the X-men society forever.
The only obstacle is casting.
And the "Xâ€'Men: Days of Future Past" star says the poignant moment made him realise that he is "done" with the character as he doesn't feel there would be a more "beautiful way of saying au revoir" to Professor X. Singer gave the nod to the unknown Dougray Scott. Actor Hugh Jackman was open to as long as it's done in the right way. Jackman's Logan goes out in a blaze of glory fighting for people he tried so very hard not to care about. Which can be a hinderance when it comes time to recast and get back to making money. I wanted to see Wolverine and X-23 stab and slash their way through a bunch of cybernetic enhanced soldiers and that's exactly what happened. I also love the fact that they respect and love their fans.
The big question is who's on their list to take Jackman's place?
