As Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine, Logan is shaping as quite the change of pace from the usual X-Men theatrics that the character has been involved in. Last month the director tweeted an image of page two of the screenplay and inserted into it he has authored a message.
Now might be a good time to talk about the ‘fights’ described in the next 100 or so pages. Basically, if you’re on the make for a hyper choreographed, gravity defying, city-block destroying CG fuckathon, this ain’t your movie.
In this flick, people will get hurt or killed when shit falls on them. They will get just as hurt or just as killed if they get hit with something big and heavy like, say, a car. Should anyone in our story have the misfortune to fall off a roof or out a window, they won’t bounce. They will die.
As for our hero, well, he’s older now and it’s clear his abilities aren’t what they once were. He’s fading on the inside and his diminished healing factor keeps him in a constant state of chronic pain — hence booze as a painkiller.
So, by all means, go ahead and worry about him.
Now, where were we? Oh yeah…
