Every once in a while, we like to share with you a piece of art created by a fan such as yourself. In recent months we’ve shared a video that showed how lackluster the music in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been, and another expertly-edited clip that placed Deadpool smack dab in the middle of the action in Captain America: Civil War. Today, in the wake of last week’s debut trailer for Logan, there’s another video we’d like to share.
The trailer for James Mangold’s Logan created quite a stir when it dropped last Thursday. People ate up the look, the feel, and the bold choices made by Mangold and longtime Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman. As you may be well aware of by now, this will be Jackman’s last appearance as Wolverine- a character he’s been playing for 16 years.
With that in mind, a fan took the Logan trailer and added to some of the haunting imagery a bunch of older clips from the X-Men movies that shine a spotlight on Wolverine’s tragic arc. They attempt to remind us of how Logan ended up in the fragile state in which we’ll find him in this movie.
Take a look at this fan-made Logan trailer:
Much has been made over the years, of Fox and Bryan Singer’s decision to make Wolverine the unofficial star of the X-Men movies. But something that can’t be denied is that Jackman has been at times an utterly magnetic presence while inhabiting the role of Logan. He’s taken the role seriously, has created a very fleshed out and emotionally-complex character.
Since he took on the role, we’ve had three Spider-Men, three Hulks, two Batmen, two Supermen, and two totally different Fantastic Four lineups. When Logan comes out in March of 2017, it’ll cap off a nearly 20 year commitment that Jackman has given the character since being cast back in 1999.
