Check Out Steve McNiven’s Artwork For The ‘Logan’ Blu-Ray Steelbook

Logan

As a collector of actual physical media, which I know in this day and age just seems insane, I am a huge fan of Blu-Ray Steelbooks and this is one that I absolutely need to add to my collection.

Revealed by IGN, the Logan Blu-Ray Steelbook features some incredible artwork from Old Man Logan comic illustrator Steve McNiven. In addition to the Blu-Ray and DVD, it also features a third disc for the Logan Noir black and white version of the film. The Blu-Ray Steelbook will be exclusively available at Best Buy.

Check it out below:

McNiven spoke with IGN about designing the artwork for the cover:

“I knew they wanted to get a flavor of the Old Man Logan stuff that I did, but also to hue to the character, the actor’s likenesses. It was definitely a new skill set that I had to sort of figure out. It was fun.”

“I did a crapload of different designs. Because we were doing the front and the back and an illustration for the inside, at one point we had different designs for the front and the back. There were some characters we added, some we took away and slowly morphed it into what the final product is. It was a pleasant surprise to find people that really knew what they wanted to do and had a cool vision, and at the same time let me do what I do best.”

Own Hugh Jackman’s last hurray as Wolverine when Logan arrives on Digital HD on May 16th and on Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD on May 23, 2017. The Blu-Ray Steelbook will be exclusively available at Best Buy. Wal-Mart and Target will also have exclusive versions of Logan, which you can find out more about here.

8 X-Men Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movie

Previous1 of 9

X-MenSo it’s probably safe to assume everyone here has seen Logan? Well, based on how well it did in the box-office I think Fox is taking notes. Now that they have both Deadpool and Logan under their belts, I’m sure they will be bringing more X-Men characters to the big-screen as soon as possible.

There are so many great X-Men arcs to choose from, but I think focusing on personal stories and fewer characters is a way to ensure the movie connects with an audience. Mutants were originally composed as a metaphor for the Civil Rights movement, and that issue is still very much so alive in our society. I’m not saying every movie needs to be political, but they all have the potential to be about so much more than destruction and boss battles. Fox focus on smaller, personal stories that show mutants in a different light. Sure they can kick ass, but let’s make sure they always feel like real people, as Logan did.

Did I miss your favorite character? Well, let me know in the comment section why they should be included! So hit Next to see the eight mutants I think Fox should bring to the big-screen next!
