Attentive if you are a fan of the films of the mutant saga because, in an interview following the next release of Logan Celebrity News, Hugh Jackman has made a most disconcerting statement in which slips that Logan is a film that goes the margin of all Universe of films about the mutants of Marvel.
It has long been clear that Logan will be a superhero movie very different from anything we’ve seen so far, especially compared to the rest of the X-Men films. However, in a recent interview with Digital Spy, Hugh Jackman has stated something contrary to what we all thought: Logan will be set in a universe different from the films of the X-Men.
We are shocked and surprised by Hugh Jackman’s statements that “Logan” could be out of the continuity of the X-Men films. After seven films and changes in the timeline, we could expect anything, and the words of the actor protagonist of the film made us believe that this eighth delivery could be out of this continuity and be a product in a certain way independent. However, James Mangold, director of the film, was quick to clarify the actor’s words via Twitter.
A user of the aforementioned social network has asked Mangold about whether it is true that “Logan” will take place on a timeline other than that of “X-Men: Days of the Past Future,” to which the director has responded as follows: “I do not think @RealHughJackman has said exactly that. It is simple. The movie takes place in 2029, five years after anything previously seen in the X-Men film. “This way the subject is settled and we understand that when Jackman said that the film would be slightly in a different universe, Being based years after any of the previous events would feel like something independent to the rest of events of previous deliveries.
@Voldemorgoth Do not think @RealHughJackman said that exactly. Simple fact. We take place in 2029, five yrs past anything depicted in XMEN film.

This response is surely a consolation for many because after a long list of changes following the past trips of “X-Men: Days of the Past Future” were not the few who were lost within this continuity. In addition to this, the introduction of X-23 could mean a lot for future releases of the mutant universe that 20th Century Fox is developing with upcoming productions such as Deadpool 2, New Mutants, X-Force “Or the future rendition of the X-Men that is still untitled. At the moment we settle for waiting on March 3 this year to see Hugh Jackman again in Wolverine’s hiding in “Logan.”
