In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.
Well written movie that never falls into silly comic book tropes (looking at you The Wolverine), it’s a perfect sendoff letter to both Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman, both of whom have said they’re done with their mutant comic book roles. I I certainly look forward to seeing more from Dafne Keen, she was pitch perfect as X-23, but her future in the Fox/Marvel movies is unsure to me considering the movie was set in the near future, and not the time frame of any of the other x-men movies, including Deadpool.
To add some gravity to how the movie ended, this was the first comic movie in nearly 20 years that didn’t have a movie stinger of some kind. When it was done, it was done with nothing left to say.
Now that Jackman and Stewart are done with Fox/Marvel movies, maybe they can come over to the proper MCU? What roles would you give them?
