9. When And Where Is The Movie Set?
That altercation in the gas station reveals that Logan takes place somewhere in Texas, while Mangold has confirmed in interviews that the movie is set roughly five years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past’s epilogue. That places the action around 2029, and it quickly becomes apparent that the world is now very different for mutants. The X-Men are seemingly no more, and whether or not the movie will reveal why remains to be seen. Their fate isn’t mentioned here, but one strong possibility for why they’re no longer around is the Legacy Virus; in the comic books, that was a disease which killed off a lot of fan-favourite mutants!
