James Mangold talks Logan and Wolverine's classic yellow costume

There are a few possibilities as to what this scene might entail. Usually, after-credits scenes set up the next film in the franchise, be it a direct sequel or just the next movie in the schedule. "This is a film that elevates its genre, succeeding precisely because it's different, and because it strives to be the Wolverine movie fans have always wanted to see".

The film ends with Logan helping X-23 and a bunch of other runaway experimental mutants fight off the scientists who created them, but in the process of helping them escape, Logan is killed. According to the critics, the movie is one of the best Marvel films ever. Fans who got to watch the early screening revealed that while the ending was deeply moving, poignant and tragic, it felt final. A standalone story that sees Jackman in the final chapter of his Wolverine alter-ego, the movie brings the iconic hero at a crossroads that will finally define his destiny. The problem, of course, is how do you follow up such a ideal ending?

"Logan", in fact, is now just behind the best-reviewed X-Men movie ever, according to MetaCritic.com; with an aggregate score of "73", it now sits just one point behind 2014's "X-Men: Days of Future Past".

Let's address the red-suited elephant in the room.

And sure enough, we now know that paying customers will get to see something that us media types were denied (and I stayed until the very end of my screening for that very reason). They wouldn't edit in a flashback of those character together because that would undo the dramatic arc the filmmakers just created, so that means it would need to take place after Logan's death. Rumors flew at the end of a year ago that Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool might appear in a cameo in the film, but both Mangold, Reynolds, and Jackman all denied that would happen. So Deadpool would be, what, standing over Logan's grave and dropping one-liners? "But the biggest block I've had", says Mangold, "is that ..."

"Logan" has a March 3, 2017 release directed by James Mangold also starring Boyd Holbrook, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Doris Morgado and Eriq La Salle.
