Logan

I’m extremely sad that Logan will be the last time that Hugh Jackman plays Wolverine.  He’s one of those perfectly cast characters, and someone that you will really have a hard time finding a replacement for.  The X-Men have always been my favorite comic book movie series.  Honestly, I was never a comic book fan, but that movies, those I love.  What makes The X-Men franchise so good in my opinion is the consistency.  The same actors have reprised their roles over 17 years.  You don’t see that often.  Not to mention, the actors they got to play the roles are pretty close to perfect.

Anyway, I like the above marketing play that they put together.  It’s very modern.  Plus, The Hydraulic Press Channel is fun.

Farewell to Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is one of those castings that just fit perfectly.  His portrayal of the character, his enjoyment of it is something rare in the movie business.  That makes the above trailer all the more sad as it’s his final time playing the pivotal mutant.  The movie, named simply Logan is set in the future, and he is growing old.  There’s a clone of him too apparently.  I don’t know.  I’ve never read the comics, and I’m trying to distance myself following movies too closely before release, it ruins all the suspense.

Jackman’s shoes will be next to impossible to fill, if Fox is smart, they will allow a dozen or so years before they bring back that character into the main stream films.  Unfortunately, for casual fans, Wolverine is the face of X-Men, so that seems unlikely.
