Why I’m Not Fired Up About Logan

Everybody is super excited for Logan, the third solo Wolverine movie that comes out later this year. They’re excited for the R rating. They’re excited for the gritting realism. They’re excited for X-23. They’re excited for the movie.

But I’m not.

The reason I am not excited is because I just don’t have any more faith in the X-Men franchise, especially not the solo Wolverine movies. X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Wolverine have all been largely generic action movies. And all of the trailers for Logan, no matter how many slow, somber songs they put over them, look like they’re promoting a generic action movie.

I would love a deep, somber, meaningful movie about Wolverine. Bring it on! But I’m pretty sure all these slow songs are just smoke and mirrors, and Logan is just going to be a movie about Wolverine and X-23 cutting through Reavers the whole time.

  1. Yup. Totes agree.

  2. Yes, yes and YES! I actually liked the “Magneto Family” story in Apocalypse….and then they killed the family, haha!

    The X-Men just can not seem to pull it together. I love the little girl X-23 in these trailers and I wish were getting a “The Last of Us” kind of story, but nothing of late has given us any reason to expect that “Logan” will be any good…not even “Deadpool.”
