A couple days back, Collider reported that 20th Century Fox’s latest superhero outing, Logan, would indeed have a post-credits sequence. While the version critics screened did not have one, they were adamant that there would be a post-credits sequence once the flick hit theaters. Given the trend in superhero movies to have post-credits scenes â€” and to pull them for critics screenings â€” this didnâ€™t seem too farfetched of an idea. So Logan has a post-credits sequence, right?
Not so fast. Logan director James Mangold has since gone on Twitter stating that the film has no post-credits scenes, despite the reports.
Additionally, Collider has updated their post-credits scoop piece. After discussing it with their sources more, they learned that, as initially believed, there is no post-credits or mid-credits scene.
That being said,audiences shouldnâ€™t go into the film thinking they wonâ€™t get any goodies. The outlet continues, stating that the film will still have â€œsomething cool for the fans.â€ It wonâ€™t be after the credits, but may, in fact, be before the movie even begins.

Weâ€™re honestly not too sure what to make of that comment. Will Logan actually have a pre-credits scene? If so, what will that scene consist of? Logan is a movie that takes place in the near future, so perhaps its prologue or pre-credits scene could simply point to some event that happened earlier in the timeline that better connects to the X-Men films, which by and large, take place in the past?
Although it is a minor disappointment that we wonâ€™t be seeing a post-credits scene â€” as theyâ€™ve been a staple of these comic book movies for some time now â€” it seems to be fitting of the material. Logan is a more down-and-dirty grounded picture that stands all too well on its own. Although it does take place in some form of the X-Men universe, its so detached that any connection with the others would feel false.
