20th Century Fox has released a new set of behind-the-scenes photos from the production of Logan. The photos can be seen in the gallery below.
The new photos (released via X-MenFilms.com) show director James Mangold working with Hugh Jackman on the star's final performance as Wolverine. Mangold is also seen working with Dafne Keen making her debut as Laura. Patrick Stewart is also shown in his final performance as Charles Xavier.
For Keen, this may be just her first role in the X-Men movies franchise. Keen nearly stole the show as Laura, a version of X-23, Wolverine's female clone. With Jackman stepping down from the role of Wolverine, there's been chatter among fans that Keen's Laura should step in as the new Wolverine, much like X-23 has done recently in the Marvel Comics universe. While nothing firm is in place, Mangold has at least had conversations about the idea with the studio.
Logan recently released on Blu-ray and DVD. The home media release includes the Logan Noir cut, which casts the entire movie in the black and white colors of much of the film's marketing.
Logan has an 88.07 ComicBook.com Composite Score, which is the second-best ComicBook.com Composite Score among all comic book movies.
