Logan will be Hugh Jackman's last film playing Wolverine, a journey that has lasted 17 years. But what was Jackman's last day on the set of his last Wolverine movie like? I had the distinct pleasure of sitting down with Logan director James Mangold, who also worked with Jackman on The Wolverine, and I asked him how those final days went down. His answer is deeply emotional, as he told me:
I can't imagine what Hugh Jackman is going through. The man has lived with Logan, the character, for nearly two decades. He's the first person to bring the surly mutant hero ,to life on screen, and even though multiple versions of numerous X-Men have come and gone over the years, only Hugh Jackman has been lucky enough to play Wolverine. It almost makes you wonder if Fox will ever recast anyone else in the role once Jackman decides to hang up his claws.
Logan, which opens in March, marks the final time that Hugh Jackman will wear the adamantium claws. It pits Wolverine and Professor X (Patrick Stewart) against an ominous force that is stalking a young girl who is displaying mutant powers... something rare in this alternate universe. Here's James Mangold, talking about Hugh Jackman's final days as Wolverine:
