There have been a lot of time-twisting in the several X-Men movies Twentieth Century Fox has produced with Marvel Entertainment.
But as fans get ready for what could be Wolverine’s final bow in Logan, where exactly does all this fit in with everything else we’ve experienced to this point? Star Hugh Jackman told Digital Spy that director James Mangold has made it easy.
Simply put – this is a story outside of the current X-Men movie universe.
“It’s a standalone movie in many ways. It’s not really beholden to timelines and storylines in the other movies. Obviously, Patrick Stewart was in there, so we have some crossover. But it feels very different and very fresh.”
Or is it that simple? Mangold – known for being quite a bit direct when it comes to his response to news stories – didn’t disappoint after Jackman’s latest comments, clarifying that the film is indeed in the same universe as the other films.
