The Cool Way The Wolverine Set Up Logan's Ending Scene Years Ago

Warning: MAJOR spoilers ahead for Logan. Don't read any further if you have not read any further if you have not seen the latest X-Men movie yet.

By now most of you probably know that Wolverine dies at the end of Logan. After all, you would not have read beyond the spoiler warning if you had not seen the film, right? Although plenty of people predicted that Hugh Jackman's clawed badass would likely go out in a blaze of glory during his final adventure, it now seems that James Mangold may have actually set up this death during the events of 2013's The Wolverine. Check out a tweet posted by one very astute fan below to see the prediction for yourself.

Comparing that moment from The Wolverine with the ending of Logan in one picture makes it pretty clear: there's a very real possibility that James Mangold and Hugh Jackman telegraphed the death of Wolverine back in 2013. Yukio (Rila Fukushima) explicitly tells Logan that all of her predictions comes true, and the death we see at the end of Hugh Jackman's final Wolverine film definitely lines up with the description she provides of his ultimate demise. Just like his agile sidekick predicted, Logan actually died on his back, covered in blood, with his heart (symbolically represented by the hand of Dafne Keen's X-23) in his hand.

Beyond that, it is fairly clear that the events of The Wolverine still exist in Logan's timeline in some form or another. Although the film was seemingly erased as a result of Days of Future Past, we clearly see what appears to be Yukio's sword on display in Wolverine's home at the beginning of the most recent X-Men film. Even if the timeline shift somehow altered the events of the 2013 film, they may have still occurred in a different manner, and Yukio may have still delivered that prediction.

It is worth pointing out that this revelation doesn't fully fall into realm of fan theory. James Mangold, spotting the Tweet, replied:
