Trivia about Logan.

  • This is the last film in which Hugh Jackman will play Wolverine. He has cited his age and his skin cancer as factors in him retiring from the role. He also said that having a discussion with Jerry Seinfeld played a part in retiring the character, as Jerry talked generally about how he wanted to make sure he never got to a point with his TV show where audiences were weary of seeing it anymore and basically saying "oh, it's you again", and Jackman felt he was fortunate to have avoided this for Wolverine and wanted to ensure it never happened. Jackman later redacted this statement, claiming that after viewing Michael Keaton's performance in Birdman he was inspired, and that he wishes to portray the character 'until his death'.[1][2] Despite this, the film is being promoted as the last time Jackman will feature in the role. Following that news, on March 28, 2015, Jackman posted on his Instagram, "Wolverine… One Last Time."[3] He also hinted at the film being an adaptation of the Old Man Logan comic storyline, which was confirmed by the story's writer, Mark Millar. In spite of Jackman's comments and the film's promotion, Ryan Reynolds revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he is attempting to convince Jackman to renew his contract for a Wolverine/Deadpool crossover film. He urged fans join the campaign by making their desire for such a project known online.
  • On October 16, 2016, Hugh Jackman tweeted another released teaser photo, hinting at the retirement of his character, Wolverine himself.
  • The story is mainly inspired by Old Man Logan, where an elderly Logan goes on a quest in a desolate Wild West future.[4][5] However, that story involved characters from throughout the Marvel Comics (Hawkeye, the Hulk, Red Skull), whereas this adaptation will only feature X-Men characters due to rights issues. The title of the film, "Logan", is a reference to Mark Millar's graphic novel "Old Man Logan," and was deliberately chosen to form an opposite from The Wolverine. The film is also be an adaptation of Alpha Flight, Mutant Massacre, and X-23.
  • Hugh Jackman was hungover when he came up with the idea for Logan. When he was done doing press for the film Chappie, director Neill Blomkamp asked what was next for Wolverine and Hugh had no idea currently. After having a few glasses of wine he fell asleep, woke up at 4 in the morning and grabbed a recorder and summed up that Wolverine 3 would be a mix of Unforgiven, The Wrestler and Shane. These 3 movies would be the basis of the story/idea/theme behind the next (and last) Wolverine film.
  • The film will take place in the future, but in the far future that was established in X-Men: Days of Future Past. Although it's the 3rd and final film in the Wolverine trilogy, the film will act as a reboot rather than a sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine and The Wolverine as it exists in the revised timeline established by X-Men: Days of Future Past. Hugh Jackman suggested in an interview following the release of the second trailer that Logan will take place in a different universe than the revised timeline, similar to how the original comic, Old Man Logan took place in a separate timeline from Earth 616. However, James Mangold confirmed that Logan will take place in the revised timeline. Patrick Stewart furthered this in an interview with Comicbook.com, stating "It's not another timeline, it's not another universe. The world has just...moved on, and we've been left behind".
  • The 10th Feature Film of the X-Men Film series.
  • Including his cameo in X-Men: First Class, his face on the cover of the "Sexiest Man Alive" People issue in Deadpool, and his Alkali Lake rampage in X-Men: Apocalypse, this film will be Hugh Jackman's 10th, and, if not, final time portraying Logan/Wolverine, raising his own record for the most times a comic book character has been played by the same actor in theatrical films. He will also be the only actor to appear in the entire X-Men film series.
  • Logan is the first Marvel superhero movie to have a title with a name of the alter-ego of a superhero. Previous examples, from DC, include The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, and Man of Steel.
  • X-23, the clone of Wolverine, made her big screen debut in the film. In the post credits scene of X-Men: Apocalypse, a group of men in suits are shown invading the Weapon X facility and stealing a vial that says "Weapon X", and placing it in a suitcase labeled Essex Corporation. This confirms that Laura Kinney, aka X-23, will be seen in Logan, and possible future movies. The character, X-23 debuted in the X-Men Evolution cartoon and is currently (2017) Wolverine in Marvel comics.
  • Bryan Cranston has publicly expressed interest in the role for Nathaniel Essex. [6]
  • This film, already mentioned to be shooting for an R rating, will be released exactly 17 years after the first X-Men film in 2000. It was believed that after the success of Deadpool, 20th Century Fox decided to aim for an R rating for this film, unlike the other Wolverine movies. However it was confirmed in an interview with X-men Producer Simon Kinberg, that this was not the case and the R rating was always going to happen. Director James Mangold said that Hugh Jackman took a salary cut because he wanted to do an R-rated movie. This pay cut and the success of Deadpool was what convinced the producer to do an R-rated movie.
  • It was reported that director James Mangold tweeted new teaser trailers for the film on social media.

  • Stephen Merchant announced his participation in the film by posting an Instagram picture which showed him with a freshly-shaven bald head and having a "Wolverine 3" tagline, though the post did not mention his character's name or any other specifics about his role.

  • Both Hugh Jackman and Richard E. Grant have starred in a Dracula movie. Jackman was in Van Helsing and Grant was in Bram Stoker's Dracula.
  • As revealed in the Sunseeker promo, Logan uses his real name, James Howlett, as an alias in the film. This marks the first time the character's full name has ever been stated in the film series, as previously his first name had only been used by Victor Creed, John Howlett, Elizabeth Howlett, and Thomas Logan in Origins, and Gwen, the woman Logan was guarding in Days of Future Past.
  • In a video featurette for The Wolverine, Hugh Jackman states that  "the great battle, I always thought with Wolverine, is the battle within himself", this inner conflict is a theme in Logan and in when questioned on the personal tone of the film in Empire magazine Jackman goes on to say "That's always been really his dilemma, coming to terms with who he is".
  • Director James Mangold said Logan will have a more "human" feel, relying very little on CGI and green screens.
  • In the Official trailer, in the scene where Logan is seen drinking at a graveyard, one of the graves has the surname "Peters" written on it. It is a reference to the actor Evan Peters, who portrays Quicksilver in the X-Men films. The trailer includes the song "Hurt" is a cover performed by Johnny Cash. Originally written and released by the band Nine Inch Nails from their second studio album, The Downward Spiral. The cover attracted praise from Nine Inch Nails singer Trent Reznor for its "sincerity and meaning". In addition, "Hurt" is said to be about living with depression and pain and emotional isolation. James Mangold, this film's director, directed the Johnny Cash biopic, Walk the Line. When asked why he chose the song for the trailer, he said "It was to set itself apart from other superhero movies". He has revealed that Logan will have a more "human" feel to it as it focuses on an old and hurting Logan in the future where the mutants are dying off.
  • The "Red Band Trailer" was actually a unofficially released trailer with the added bonus of a grainy clip of Wolverine/Logan stabbing a man in the head. The grainy clip was a small clip that was still being filmed with no polished and fully rendered CGI.

  • This film is the second longest X-Men film, behind X-Men: Apocalypse.

    • To use a Jim Croce song, specifically "I Got A Name" (playing in the convenience store when Laura is shoplifting). The previous was "Time In A Bottle" in X-Men Days of Future Past, during Quicksilver's slow-mo sequence.
    • To be an R-rated movie in the X-Men film series after Deadpool.
  • It is also the second comic book film Lennie Loftin has appeared in. The first was Daredevil where he portrayed Detective Nick Manolis.

  • Logan's loss of his self-healing ability and an ailing Professor Xavier hints at the fates of the characters at the end of the movie.
  • Patrick Stewart lost 21 pounds to play Charles Xavier as elderly and sick. Stewart claimed that he had a steady weight since he was a teenager and had never deliberately lost weight before. Hugh Jackman genuinely held Stewart in all the scenes of Wolverine carrying Dr. Xavier.

  • In the UK, the first wide release showing of this film was at the unusual time of 10:23pm, rather than the usual midnight showing for a major release. This is a reference to the film including the character of X-23. X is the Roman numeral for 10.
  • Opening at 4,071 theaters in the United States, this film is the widest opening R-rated release in cinema history.
  • According to James Mangold, this film is influenced by the crime story The Gauntlet (1977), and the dramas Paper Moon (1973), Little Miss Sunshine (2006) and The Wrestler (2008) and the Wild West stories The Cowboys (1972) and Shane (1953) (Charles and Laura watch this film as a tribute).
  • It was believed that after the success of Deadpool, 20th Century Fox decided to aim for an R rating for this film, unlike the other Wolverine movies. However, it was confirmed in an interview with X-Men producer Simon Kinberg that this was not the case, and the R rating was always going to happen.
  • Director James Mangold stated that the film is set in 2029 to avoid any conflict with the time line established in X-Men: Days of Future Past, but that his goal was to make a stand alone film that was not bound to continuing previous storyline or setting up sequels.
  • According to James Mangold allowing the film to be R-rated was important not so much for violent content, but for style: "For me, what was most interesting in getting the studio to O.K. an R rating was something entirely different. They suddenly let go of the expectation that this film is going to play for children. And when they let go of that, you are free in a myriad of ways. The scenes can be longer. Ideas being explored in dialogue or otherwise can be more sophisticated. Storytelling pace can be more poetic and less built like attention-span-deficit theater."
  • An interesting parallel to the first X-Men movie is made in the opening scene. In the first X-Men movie, the first time that we see Wolverine use his claws is when he cuts a shotgun in half after it was pressed against the back of his head. In Logan, the first time that we see Wolverine use his claws is when he cuts a man's arm off after he presses a shotgun to the back of his head.

  • Some fans have noted that Dafne Keen, X-23, bears a resemblance to the actor, Evan Peters, who plays Quicksilver in the two newest X-men films. This resemblance has led to internet memes and theories that she is actually Quicksilver's daughter, rather than an altered clone of Logan.
  • Stephen Merchant announced his participation in the film by posting an Instagram picture which showed him with a freshly-shaven bald head and having a "Wolverine 3" tagline, though the post did not mention his character's name or any other specifics about his role. Later footage and notes revealed he is a kind-hearted mutant named Caliban who is taking care of an aging and very ill Professor Charles Xavier.
  • Aside from screaming and yelling, it takes over two thirds of the movie before Laura speaks.
  • Patrick Stewart told interviewers before the film's premiere that this would "probably" be his last performance as Charles Xavier, and cryptically noted that regardless of what happened to him in the picture, nothing was impossible in science fiction.

  • Sir Ian McKellen, who plays Magneto in the X-Men films, had expressed interest in appearing in this film.
  • Hugh Jackman admitted to having two lingering regrets about retiring from the role of Logan/Wolverine: that he never appeared in an Avengers movie and that he never appeared in a Deadpool movie.

  • Logan smiles only three times in the entire film.
  • Professor Xavier's Psionic blast initially was conceived as a huge pulse of energy, much more akin to the kind of superhero powers seen in other films. But director James Mangold was against that treatment, he wanted keeping everything much more naturalistic. So Vfx supervisor Chas Jarrett evolved the idea from the initial pulse wave idea, into a mind control field that caused people to become immobile. Unable to move and breathe or function properly, the psionic blast would eventually kill those around him.
  • Sabretooth was originally going to have a small role, where he helps Wolverine, X-23, and Professor X when they arrive in Oklahoma. There was also going to be a scene where Logan encounters a kind of "Underground Railroad" for mutants, which might have had a cameo from a well known character. Both scenes were removed, because the team behind the film didn't want to have an abundance of cameos, or mutants in the film.

  • It is unclear exactly which timeline this particular film is a part of. The after credits scene of X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) and the inclusion of Caliban would suggest this film being part of the reestablished timeline set by X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).

The after credits scene of X-Men: Apocalypse and the inclusion of Caliban would suggest this film being part of the reestablished timeline set by X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).
