Yahoo Movies has exclusively revealed a deleted scene from Logan which features the death of Caliban (Stephen Merchant).
In the comics, Caliban was a mutant with the ability to track other mutants. After he was captured by the Watchtower (an anti-mutant research facility), Caliban was liberated by Wolverine and several other mutants. He was one of the few who regained his powers post M-Day.
The film features the albino mutant assisting Logan (Hugh Jackman) as he takes care of Professor X (Sir Patrick Stewart) who is in a state of cognitive decline. But after he’s been captured by Donald Pierce (Boyd Holbrook) and the Reavers, Caliban heroicly takes his own life using grenades at the farmhouse to prevent the cyborg assassins from using him to track Logan and Laura (Dafne Keen) any further.
The deleted scene released reveals a rather toasty Caliban after he sacrifices himself for Logan and Laura. You can watch it below.
The film stars Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq LaSalle, Elizabeth Rodriguez, and Boyd Holbrook. Here’s the official synopsis:
“In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.”
Logan is available on Digital HD today and will release on Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on May 23.
