But neither is really a superhero movie, are they? Their track record is uncanny.
In fact Jackman took a pay cut to ensure Logan received an R rating. When we first see Logan (also known as Wolverine, or James Howlett, or Hugh Jackman in real life), he's asleep in a auto, but is soon woken by a gang trying to steal the tires from his ride. But this is Jackman's signature role, the one that will forever define his career, and after playing the character in six movies (and two cameo appearances), you can't begrudge the guy a protracted farewell.
Wolverine is coming back! The concerns were plenty.
Logan is, by all accounts, the end of an era.
Jackson has made it clear he doesn't intend to play the Wolverine again.
But asked if he envisions Logan as his final outing as Wolverine, he answered: "When I had the script, I was like, 'Yes'".
"With Hugh, I was very interested in meeting him".
We find Logan (Hugh Jackman) exclusively using his real name of James Howlett, and as a limo driver for hire in the border town of El Paso, Texas. So much so that we will no longer recognize the character?
The X-Men are gone - there hasn't been a new mutant in 25 years thanks to the villainous Dr. Zander Rice (Richard E. Grant). The story is simple and purposeful, grounded and lovely, and so brutally violent-it's unlike any other movie in the franchise. And unlike most superhero movies of late, Logan doesn't engineer its plot for franchise road-mapping. They tolerate each other without any goal to live. Oh, and X-23? She's never even heard of the Beatles. Logan's vaunted healing factor has slowed, and at times doesn't seem to work at all.
Patrick Stewart returns as Professor Charles Xavier. It's hard to imagine the X-Men movies moving forward without Jackman, so the question is, will they?
Laura as Wolverine in Marvel's comics.
There are stakes that everyone can relate to, palpable emotions and reminders of a hard-earned longevity in an unforgiving world where those with differences have lost many battles. This obviously been a huge gamble for 20 Century Fox who retain the rights to the X-Men universe, but that huge gamble has indeed payed off.
Stewart, 76, remembered Jackman for his modesty on that visit.
By now you should know their history and common struggles and if not, it's worn on their faces. Is Logan the last X-Men movie? Dangerous, Charles Xavier has always been, if only because he is one of the most powerful mutants that exist.
This isn't Mangold's first gritty rodeo though.
Mangold, the director of "Logan", is widely known for his films "Girl, Interrupted", "Kate & Leopold", "Identity", "Walk the Line", "3:10 to Yuma", and "Knight and Day".
The film, co-written and directed by James Mangold, takes place in 2029. "I actually said to someone, 'Not with a bang, but a whimper'".
I can assure you that couldn't be further from the truth. The big, explosive team ups are wonderful, delightful and inspire a giddiness in full blown fans, but films like Logan that inspire a longing to dive deep into these characters and what lies beyond their powers are a reminder of the possibility of the genre beyond those crossover events. The squeamish will avert their eyes, and young children should not be allowed anywhere near this movie, no matter how many X-Men action figures they own. Logan is good, it is occasionally great, but I would argue that it is about as good as we should expect these films to be as a matter of course.
The film establishes its template in the credits sequence, as our scruffy anti-hero is brutally attacked by would-be carjackers who then meet grisly ends.
Great characters or actors can not carry a film by themselves, as evidenced by what Warner Bros. has been doing with their live-action DC Extended Universe films. It has a lot of really cool adventure, it's amusing and heroic, and there's a lot of different characters and a lot of different worlds that we get to go to.
Mark Zuckerberg urges people to take action against backlash to globalisation

So the Trump administration just sent out a really weird email survey
Donald Trump's attempts to gauge the opinions of his supporters on the mainstream American media have been sensationally hijacked. Its questions read less like survey questions and more like campaign stump lines.
