In a newly released deleted scene from Logan, a young boy named Bobby is seen playing with Wolverine and Sabretooth action figures. In the clip, he asks Logan if the comic book stories about Sabretooth are lies as well, to which Logan says that no, all the stories aren’t lies and that, yes, Sabretooth is real.
You can check out the full deleted scene below.
Sabretooth was initially supposed to be in the film, but the final script didn’t include his character. It is interesting how the film managed to incorporate the X-Men comics into the story of the film, flirting with the line between what’s real and not real in the film’s universe.
In the near future, a weary Logan (Hugh Jackman) cares for an ailing Professor X (Patrick Stewart) at a remote outpost on the Mexican border. His plan to hide from the outside world gets upended when he meets a young mutant (Dafne Keen) who is very much like him. Logan must now protect the girl and battle the dark forces that want to capture her.
Logan will be available to own on Blu-Ray and DVD on May 23, 2017.

‘X-Men’: How Fox Can Get A ‘Dark Phoenix’ Film Right This Time
Nowadays, you can’t blink without news of a superhero film hitting the web. As we are in the age of the superhero film, we must remember that not that long ago a film based on a comic book property was almost laughed at. Now, superhero films are the billion dollar mega-blockbusters we all know and love. Sure, superhero movies have existed before the ones that are now dominating the box office, but the entire genre almost got a big adrenaline shot with 2000’s X-Men coming out and giving us an earnest adaptation of our favorite mutant superheroes. Since then, there have been 10 movies within Fox’s X-Men universe alone, with 3 new films coming in 2018 and at least 3 more in development.
While not all the X-Men film has been sure hits, they have done some great course-correcting in the newer movies, starting with First Class. The prequel/reboot films gave Fox the opportunity to reset some of their faults from some of the early films (looking at you X-Men: The Last Stand). And Days of Future Past helped correct some of their timeline snappoos and gave us some much-needed closure on the earlier X-Men films. With X-Men: Apocalypse, we were introduced to a young Scott Summers and a young Jean Grey. With the reintroduction of Jean Grey and the great final act of X-Men: Apocalypse, it looks like we might possibly be getting a proper Dark Phoenix storyline on the horizon. Last year, we here at Heroic Hollywood broke the news that a Dark Phoenix movie was in development.
Lucky for us, Fox is moving forward with the movie and X-Men: Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters November 2, 2018. This gives them the rare opportunity to “get it right.” Because let’s face it, X-Men: The Last Stand did not do the story of the Dark Phoenix justice. The third film of the original X-Men movies as a whole was not well put together. The film tried to juggle too many storylines and did not really give each of the separate stories their justice. By giving the Dark Phoenix angle another look, Fox has the chance to do some course correcting. Here are some ways X-Men: Dark Phoenix can succeed. Click Next to take a look…
