However, in a new interview, director James Mangold has shed some light on what exactly makes Logan different to other comic book adaptations, and it sounds like we should probably forget about the huge, CG heavy sequences which have become a staple of them.
Remember, the filmmaker said that the movie isn’t a “hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying CG f*ckathon” when a page of the screenplay was released online earlier this year, and he went on to explain what exactly that means. “The goal was to make something human. We made an effort to scale back on the gloss and greenscreen.”
Hugh Jackman meanwhile elaborated on that, by adding: “It’s essential you see this as the story of a man who is struggling with mortality and legacy and whether the world has been better off with him or without him.” The whole things sounds pretty amazing, right?
