While there are some that come close – and Logan sure as hell is one of them – no movie is perfect and there will always be something for the internet’s creative types to make fun of. One of the latest cheeky tributes to nerd culture’s most popular releases is the newest video from How It Should Have Ended, which today took on the brutal and heart-wrenching R-rated masterpiece that was Logan. The video touches on the few points in the film that could’ve been improved to make for a more seamless and sensible plot and then goes on to a wonderfully bizarre musical finish. (more…)

“The Westchester Incident.” It hangs over the events of Logan like pendulum doom whenever anyone talks about what happened to the X-Men, or why Wolverine is in hiding with Professor X just beyond the Mexican border. If you’ve seen Logan, then you know that there’s never an explanation about the “Westchester Incident,” but that doesn’t mean that there wasn’t a lot of thought put into it by the film’s director. In an new interview, James Mangold said yes, he does know what the “Westchester Incident” is, but covering it in the movie would have taken things far off course, thematically speaking. Spoilers ahead, obviously. (more…)

The final Hugh Jackman Wolverine movie, Logan hit theaters this past weekend. After more than 17 years Jackman is ready to hang up his claws. Finally getting an R-Rating (proper) Wolverine movie, it was a resounding success. We here at Nerdbastards absolutely loved the movie. After its first weekend, the film is already breaking box office records for the month of March and fans are already comparing it to Chris Nolans’ The Dark Knight in regards to being one of the best, most serious and dramatic superhero movies.

If you haven’t been under a rock for the last week, then you probably have seen or at least heard of the new Deadpool 2 tease, ‘No Good Deed’, at the beginning of the new Logan film. In all his raunchy glory, Deadpool cracks jokes at multiple pop culture tropes including Superman and Wolverine himself. Although it has been stated that none of the short film’s content will make its way into the sequel, fans are able to get their little fix of the old avocado while they wait patiently for Deadpool 2 to grace their eyes.

However, one thing stood out in the short film that has been leading countless individuals to the world wide web after Logan for answers. At the end of the teaser, a massive wall of text hits the screen and, as quick as it appears, it is gone. Being unable to read it, people have really been wondering what this text says and, at last, we know what the wall says but the answer may seem a bit insane (although, isn’t that pretty Deadpool-esque?).

‘Logan’ Says Goodbye By Breaking Box Office Records

If you went to the movies this weekend, there was probably one thing you saw above all others, and it was the last stand of a man called Logan. As it turned out, the R-rating for this superhero film did nothing to quell the enthusiasm fans had at seeing the final adventure of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, the feral X-Man with the quick healing and metal claws. Already a hit with critics with an astounding 93 per cent “fresh” ranking on Rotten Tomatoes, Logan is now a certified hit with fans and audiences with a recording breaking opening weekend haul of $85.3 million.

Hugh Jackman Thanks Wolverine Fans In Tribute Video

It’s hard to believe that a barely-known Aussie would spend the next 17 years of his career winning over the hearts of comic book and X-Men nerds playing one of the most iconic characters ever. When X-Men debuted in theaters in 2000, it was also Hugh Jackman‘s big start in the states. Since then he’s had a relatively steady career on the big screen and off. However, he’s always found a way to return to where it all started – with the character Wolverine. Sadly, Jackman has played the character for the last time (or so he says). As a big thank you to the fans who have stuck with him throughout the years (good and bad), he tweeted out a special video featuring fan art from his latest movie Logan. Check it out after the jump.

Well, this is it – Hugh Jackman’s last outing as Wolverine. He’s played the character in nine movies starting with 2000’s X-Men. It is in this, his last hurrah, that blows them all away. Logan is a powerful, contemplative film that perfectly ends Jackman’s run with the character. It’s a family drama, an action thriller, and the boldest, if not most affecting superhero flick in years.

Here are 5 reasons why Logan will be remembered fondly.

From the first, ultra-violent, gory confrontation between a drunk, alcoholic Wolverine/Logan/James Howlett (Hugh Jackman) and three of the unluckiest gangbangers ever put on film, Logan, Jackman’s second collaboration with writer-director James Mangold (The Wolverine, 3:10 to Yuma, Night & Day, Cop Land) and reportedly his last time out as the title character, announces itself as a new, different superhero movie and not just because it’s R-rated (we saw plenty of ultra-violence last February with Deadpool) but because Mangold, his screenwriting partner, Scott Frank (The Lookout, The Interpreter, Minority Report, Out of Sight, Get Shorty), and Jackman, every bit a co-equal partner, go where no superhero genre movie has gone before: Into exploring the long-term physical, mental, and emotional consequences of living above and beyond what we otherwise consider normal or natural with depth, nuance, and genuine emotion. All this achieved with stakes – saving a life, saving a handful of lives – would be considered marginal, tangential, or even irrelevant in the typically overblown, bombastic superhero entries from Marvel, DC, or the X-Men universe prior to Logan.

Fox’s upcoming Logan movie marks the end of an era. Since 2000, Hugh Jackman has given us our cinematic version of Wolverine, the clawed mutant who has been the central player in all of the X-Men movies. The 48-year-old is ready to hang up his claws as Logan will be his final outing as the particular character. While Jackman has left the door open for a possible Wolverine return (if Fox and Marvel Studios ever play nice, he would love to be in an Avengers movie), this is probably his last outing. This also marks the end for Sir Patrick Stewart as well for playing the role of Professor Charles Xavier. There has been no “official” confirmation that Stewart is done with the role, until now.
