Ever since early black and white set photos from Logan hit the web, fans began speculating that the final installment of the Wolverine film series could be released in the same style. Director James Mangold recently revealed that he was working on a black and white version of the film, but delivered no further details on if or when audiences could view the colorless version of the film. In an interview with Deadline, Mangold has now confirmed that a black and white version of Logan is being developed for the film’s home video release.
“It is something we are doing.”
Mangold revealed that the decision to develop a colorless version of the film was partly a response to fan reactions to the set photos.
“I think it even surprised everyone to the degree that there is a kind of a running assumption that black and white is a turnoff for most people. It caused such an extreme reaction, and so much appreciation for these pictures, and then people immediately wondering if the film itself was going to be in black and white, and so we are giving it a whirl, and I think the Blu-ray will come out with a pass on it. I think it will be a very handsome black and white version of the picture.”
