James Mangold Does Not Mince Words When It Comes to Post-Credits Scenes

James Mangold, director of The Wolverine and Logan, has one very serious pet peeve when it comes to all the other superhero movies out there. He hates post-credits scenes.

How much does he hate the post-credit stinger, popularized by Marvel and now de rigeur for any superhero movie with shared universe ambitions? Well, let him tell you in his own words, from this weekend’s Writers Guild...

You know, in the other black and white Old Man Logan image we got, I thought he was looking better than ever. This new photo pretty much puts that to bed. I guess the future does not come with doctors. At least not doctors Logan can trust.

As is now the custom, director James Mangold dropped an image of a Logan character on Twitter. I think this one may be the bleakest, since we know that...

Despite Deadpool's Success, Fox Still Second-Guessed Logan

Despite <i>Deadpool</i>'s Success, Fox Still Second-Guessed <i>Logan</i>

We all know the story . For years 20th Century Fox, the controllers of the rights to all Marvel X-Men properties, was too worried to make the R-rated Deadpool. They didn’t think something that raunchy or violent could work in the superhero genre. Then, finally, after years of saying “No,” they finally said “Yes”—and $780 million later, they’re happy they did.

But it seems that even after...

In addition to another black-and-white shot of Hugh Jackman as Old Man Logan—one that makes it even money that the next Logan trailer uses “Ring of Fire” instead of “Hurt”—there are also some lovely storyboards.

Unfortunately, this tweet does not do the images justice.

Anyone who’s seen the trailers could easily guess that Logan is the best solo Wolverine movie, but it’s more than that. It’s a legitimately special movie that just happens to star superheroes—a film that wouldn’t be out of place at the Academy Awards. And it’s still just as badass as any Wolverine fan could want.

The film, co-written and directed by James Mangold, takes place in 2029. Logan...

No one disputes that James Mangold struck gold when he cast Dafne Keen as X-23 in his hit film, Logan. You can even watch her audition and see why he made that choice. She was amazing.

It’s even more impressive, though, when you realize Keen beat out at least one more much more prominent young actress for the role: Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown. In a new interview for Variety, Brown...

Despite being Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine, the real star of Logan turned out to be Dafne Keen.

When the very first trailer for Fox’s Logan dropped last year, it was the ad’s careful use of Johnny Cash’s haunting “Hurt” that suggested the movie would have an emotional weight and depth to it unlike any other X-Men flick. The song was always perfect crystallization of the older Wolverine’s painful struggle, but in this new trailer for the movie’s black-and-white version, footage from the...
