It's a really good time to be a comic book nerd. In addition to the normal slew of films that are coming from DC and Marvel, the past weekend marks New York Comic Con. This means that popular franchises are teasing what to expect from future projects, and Hugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine in the X-Men Universe is no exception. The upcoming solo flick, which has been recently revealed as titled Logan, has been sharing images from the set every day. The most recent of these images hints at a new setting for the X-Men franchise, adding yet another reason to be excited for Logan.
It looks like Wolverine is once again going to kick ass in a foreign country. Except this time, it's a Spanish speaking nation. Let's hope Wolverine has become bilingual during his long, violent life.
It should be interesting to see how heavily Latin culture plays into Logan. This won't be the first time that Wolverine has an international adventure, as longtime fans will remember him spending the majority of his second spinoff movie The Wolverine in Japan. As a result, The Wolverine was heavily inspired by Japanese culture and featured a strong cast of Asian actors including Rila Fukushima, Hiroyuki Sanada, and and Tao Okamoto. If Logan were to follow suit, we may see a similarly diverse cast co-starring alongside Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart. However, the cast that has been announced thus far isn't exclusively Latin, with the exception being Orange is the New Black and Fear The Walking Dead actress Elizabeth Rodriguez.
The images released from Logan's official Instagram account also features a stylistic choice that is garnering a fair amount of internet buzz. Each of the five images released have been in black and white, leading many to wonder if Logan will utilize dramatic color changing in the film. Will director James Mangold push the limits of X-Men film expectations by making the movie in muted or black and white tones? Maybe they'll go full Sin City and use color selectively, perhaps with the heaps of blood that Logan promises to feature. The movie aiming or an R-rating, after all (thanks Deadpool).
