Fans are preparing for an emotional weekend, as they are having to say goodbye to the longest-tenured comic book actor in history.
Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine since the original X-Men movie in 2000, and he's appeared in nine films in the 17 years since then. At this point, Jackman and Wolverine are one in the same.
Logan will be the final time Jackman portrays the character, and Wolverine's long-time rival has taken to Twitter to pay his respects.
Liev Schreiber, who played Sabretooth in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, penned a touching thank you to Hugh Jackman.
While they may have been enemies in the movie, it's clear the two actors have a ton of respect for each other.

...Thank you so much for showing me the ropes and inviting me to be a part of it. Love you brother.
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 hits theaters on March 3, 2017. If you are excited for the film, then let us know with our Anticipation Rankings below! The movie is currently #3 on all of ComicBook.
