To see Hugh Jackman as Wolverine back in the original X-Men days and to see him now in his newest film Logan is quite the surreal experience. At times, it doesn't even look like the same person, but somehow regardless of sideburn length and feral haircut he still always embodies the essence of Wolverine.
A new gif from Gfycat user Falconbox shows this process in motion, and it's a bit trippy (especially when he blinks). Falconbox did an impressive job on the whole thing, so much so that Jackman himself tweeted it out with the caption "HIS TIME HAS COME. @WolverineMovie @20thcenturyfox."
When Wolverine himself takes notice, you know you've done something right.
As for Logan, Jackman's latest (and sadly last) film in the role is garnering overwhelming positive praise and is listed 2nd all time in ComicBook.com's composite score rankings. Not only that, but the film ranks first all-time in ComicBook.com's user rankings, and that is translating into quite the box office as well. You can view the official description for the film below.
Logan takes place in the year 2029, where mutant births have become extremely rare. The defenders of mutant kind, the X-Men, are long gone, and the only remains of them are an old and struggling Charles Xavier and a weary Logan. Logan's vaunted healing factor has slowed, and at times doesn't seem to work at all. When a young mutant needs his help, Logan has to unsheathe his claws once more. His job isn't over yet.
Logan stars Hugh Jackman (Logan), Boyd Holbrook (Donald Pierce), Patrick Stewart (Charles Xavier), Dafne Keen (Laura Kinney/X-23), Doris Morgado (Maria), Stephen Merchant (Caliban), Elizabeth Rodriguez (Gabriela), and Richard E. Grant (Dr. Zander Rice). James Mangold is directing and helped on the screenplay along with Scott Frank and Michael Green.
Logan is in theaters now.
