Director James Mangold revealed his idea for a film starring Dafne Keen's X-23 following a screening of the black-and-white version of 'Logan'.

Logan X-23 Film
While Logan may have been Hugh Jackman’s final performance as Wolverine, the critically acclaimed film also introduced audiences to Dafne Keen as X-23, a young mutant with powers similar to the titular hero. The character quickly became a fan favorite and audiences have been calling for her to return in a future X-Men film or receive her own solo feature. During an interview with Screen Rant following a screening of Logan Noir, director James Mangold shared his vision for an X-23 film should he be tasked with developing the project.

Though Mangold did not reveal any potential story details, he did offer his vision for the core concept of an X-23 spin-off film.

“A very honest film about young people, is what I’d say – a very honest film about young people growing up.”

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.

Directed by James Mangold, the film stars Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq LaSalle, Elizabeth Rodriguez, and Boyd Holbrook.

Logan is now available on Digital HD  and will be released on Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on May 23.
