Some new concept art of Logan has just been released, showing many locations present in the final film and some that were left on the cutting-room floor. It also reveals that instead of Professor X or Caliban, Wolverine had a different kind of companion before meeting with a girl named Laura.
Concept artist Shae Shatz has released a number of images that he worked on for Hugh Jackman’s final Wolverine movie, one of which shows Logan walking alongside a canine companion in front of a gas station in the middle of nowhere. Perhaps this may have been done as a kind of homage to Mad Max: The Road Warrior, a movie which had a bit of influence on the original Old Man Logan comic (which is something that the movie is partially inspired by), or perhaps this was done as a safety measure in the event that they couldn’t get Patrick Stewart to make one final appearance. Take a look at it and much more below:
Logan is in theaters now. Its cast includes Hugh Jackman as James “Logan” Howlett (Wolverine), Sir Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier (Professor X), Dafne Keen as Laura Kinney (X-23), Stephen Merchant as Caliban, Richard E. Grant as Dr. Zander Rice, and Boyd Holbrook as Donald Pierce. Other X-Men movies that are currently in development include Deadpool 2, X-Men: The New Mutants, X-Force, and a sequel to last year’s X-Men: Apocalypse which was formerly believed to have the subtitle of Supernova.
