After nine X-Men films distributed by 20th Century Fox, Logan was quite a departure from the usual formula, and especially contrasted with the brightly colorful X-Men: Apocalypse, which had been released the previous year. Director James Mangold and actors Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart were given free rein to shape this movie, and the result was hugely praised for being completely outside the norm. Logan is a dystopian, futuristic, neo-Western which deconstructs the superhero genre by proving that popular and beloved characters can indeed permanently die. Loosely based on the hugely successful "Old Man Logan" comic book storyline, but with a few unexpected twists, Logan both darkly satirizes superhero comics, and also celebrates the hope that fanciful stories like those in comics provide. Read now the summary of a film which both complements and challenges X-Men film lore, the tragically hopeful story of an aging Wolverine learning to be a father figure for X-23 and an entire younger generation of mutant survivors.
