Patrick reverses course and says ‘Logan’ will be his last film as Professor X

While Logan will indeed be the last Wolverine project for Hugh Jackman, new remarks from Patrick Stewart point to the end for his version of Professor X.

Stewart made the announcement at a SiriusXM Town Hall screening of the film, alongside Hugh Jackman and James Mangold.

“A week ago, Friday night in Berlin, the three of us sat, watching the movie, and I was so moved by it, much more moved than I had been the first time of seeing it. Maybe it was the company of these two guys, but the movie ended and — this is an admission — but at one point [Hugh] reached out, and he took my hand in those last few minutes, and I saw him go [mimes wiping a tear from his eye] like this, and then I realized I had just done the same thing.”

Stewart continued: “Then, the movie ended… and we were going to be taken up on stage, but not until the credits were over. So, we had some time to sit there and, as I sat there I realized there will never be a better, a more perfect, a more sensitive, emotional, and beautiful way of saying au revoir to Charles Xavier than this movie. So, I told [Hugh] that same evening, ‘I’m done too. It’s all over.’”

Logan is set to be rated-R, full of profanity and violence. Dafne Keen will be central to the story, both in purpose with Stewart’s Professor X and in action, as Keen will become X-23.

Director James Mangold returns after The Wolverine and recently confirmed interest in making an X-23 spin-off film. Read more HERE.

Stephen Merchant is set to play Caliban with Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Eriq La Salle, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez.

Logan arrives March 3, 2017.

Most recently is the news that the film will NOT have a post-credit scene.

“Previously I reported that Logan would have a post-credits scene,” noted Collider. “After talking with more sources I’ve learned I was wrong in my original report. Logan does not have a post-credits scene. I’ve never been so happy to be wrong. After you see Logan you’ll understand why a post-credits scene would feel out of place based on the tone of the picture…However, after doing some digging I’ve learned I wasn’t altogether wrong about Logan having something cool for the fans. But instead of it being after the credits, maybe it’s before the movie has started…”
