We know it is Hugh Jackman’s last ride as Wolverine on the big screen in Logan but is it actually Wolverine’s last ride entirely? Mr. Sunday Movies latest Easter eggs and references video hints at that, making a good case that far more than Old Man Logan is at hand with this final Jackman film.
We had hints of the X-23 appearances from a few months ago, but something that didn’t truly hit was that Marvel had killed off the original Wolverine in the comics to make way for his female clone as the new “best there is” in the comic universe — save for the alternate Old Man Logan version running around too. Comics are fun and weird like that. But if you didn’t know how it all happened, it might play into where Logan is heading and how Hugh Jackman is going out as the character.
There’s also a little background on The Reavers, who seem more like a cross between mutant hunters in the trailer and their comic book counterparts. As they say in the video, there doesn’t seem to be a guy running around with a tank for legs — a damn shame. Boyd Holbrook does seem to have a missing hand and that could be the result of those claws we get to see in action throughout the trailer and international red band trailer. It would give the Reavers a reason for revenge against Wolverine and also allow for Holbrook to stay in Narcos mode for the duration of filming. Accent and all.
Showing how small and feeble my mind is, I never thought they might try to kill Wolverine in this movie. It never crossed my mind until Mr. Sunday Movies’ beautiful video and now I’m sold. There’s going to be a bloody end for plenty of people in this movie and one of them will be Hugh Jackman, and it will be beautiful with a Johnny Cash soundtrack.
