In many ways, Logan is the perfect way to say goodbye to Hugh Jackman’s time as Wolverine in the X-Men franchise. And while Jackman has now confirmed he’s taking on the role for Deadpool 3, he’s also confirmed that the events of Logan remain intact in the franchise canon. As much a tragic western as it is a superhero film, Logan deals with all the dilemmas that arise when a seemingly unkillable mutant like Wolverine begins to age and face the prospect of his own mortality, even while pretending desperately what he can do is make the world just a little safer for his kind.
Donald Pierce, played by Boyd Holbrook, stands in the way. Revealed as a cyborg, he is also the leader of the Reavers, a criminal cybernetic gang trying to capture the young mutants Logan is trying to rescue. Director James Mangold praised Holbrook’s portrayal of a villain that could easily have been overdone, even cheesy. Mangold wanted something more naturalistic, and it seems Holbrook delivered.
“Boyd Holbrook is just a fabulous actor,” Mangold told Digital Spy in 2017. “I wanted this film to feel intimate and real and acted truthfully, and I really wanted to get rid of that bloated feeling that I’ve had in a lot of comic book movies.”
