Brazil's Comic-Con was over the weekend and the event has acted as our first look for a number of major 2017 releases. While the content shown for Logan was designed to be a special treat for those in attendance, and thus we have not seen it, we do now know what was seen. Interestingly, the special scene that debuted in Brazil appears to show something that we didn't expect to see a lot of in Logan, humor.
According to reports by Universo X-Men, and translated by X-Men Films, the scene which was introduced by Hugh Jackman via prerecorded message, shows our three main characters, Wolverine, Professor X and the child Laura, on the run from something but stopping to have dinner at a farmhouse with a family who has taken them in. When asked why they're on the road, Logan and the Professor give different responses, the moment is apparently played for at least some humor. Laura, for her part, tries to eat her dinner with her bare hands, rather than her silverware. Logan tries to teach her the proper way to eat, hinting at the sort of relationship that we'll see between the two in the film. In the final moments of the scene, Logan tells the family that Charles Xavier used to be a principal of a school. Xavier follows up by saying it was a school with "special needs," and that Logan had previously been a student. We can guess that moment may draw some laughs as well depending on how it's delivered.
That fact that Logan may contain some lighter moments is a bit of good news for those who might have been afraid that the entire film was going to be one long movie of continual darkness. The first trailer was one of the most powerful that we've seen in a long time, but it set a tone that is something different than the entirety of the X-Men franchise to this point. I don't have a problem with dark. I'm looking forward to Logan in large part because that trailer was so impressive, but a few moments of fun here or there isn't too much to ask, is it?
A few jokes aside, we're still preparing for a heavy film when Logan is released early next year. It will be Hugh Jackman's last bow as the popular mutant and the end of his third trilogy as Wolverine. How much are you looking forward to seeing Logan next year? Let us know in the comments.
