James Mangold, who directed The Wolverine and Logan, has been doing press ahead of the release of the new film.
However, during Hugh Jackman's recent interview with theNew York Times, he left a little wiggle room for potentially returning as Wolverine after Logan. Could he become X-23's mutant mentor, granted he doesn't die in this next film? The box office performance of Logan may yet be a determining factor. As such, we should expect healthier business (at least in North America) then The Wolverine which was coming off the much-loathed X-Men Origins: Wolverine. When I began to understand some of the content of this film, I was all for it. God knows how I'll feel in three years.
"I'm hesitating because I could totally see how that's the ideal fit". They deliver the violence, the crass grumpiness of Old Man Logan, and bring to screen a young lady who, herself, could make for an interesting extension of the franchise. Yes, this movie is an R-rated Wolverine movie, and yes there is explicitly gruesome and bloody violence throughout. Indiewire's David Ehrlich compared it to Alfonoso Cuaron's Children Of Men, saying that "Jackman's snarling embodiment of the comic book cover star was built to survive Brett Ratner sequels, recover from Will.i.am cameos, and elevate solid action fare into the pop culture firmaments".
Logan is a welcome rarity in the ever increasing pantheon of superhero movies; it's one that has emotional weight.

Although some of the impact is lost considering this character got vaporized onscreen awhile back and yet was miraculously resurrected, but I digress. But if you wanted to see a live-action Wolverine movie as gory as (some of) the comic books (or the video game adaptation of X-Men Origins: Wolverine), you'll be in heaven.
The Australian actor made this admission to Fandango, confessing that because Ryan Reynolds only found success with Deadpool in February 2016, and Jackman is all set to bid farewell to the character of Wolverine with Logan next month, he doesn't believe that a crossover film will happen. He's not quite the best at what he does anymore, but what he does still isn't very nice.
The Independent's Geoffrey McNab says the film, which has an R-rating following the success of last year's Deadpool, may prove too depressing for typical comic book fans, but celebrates how it has "more heart here than you'll find in nearly any other superhero movie".
