X-23 Spinoff Movie: Logan Director James Mangold Updates

X-23 Dafne Keen Logan 'Wolverine': A Laura-centric 'Logan' spinoff is in the works
Ellis Copeland | 25 October, 2017, 13:37

"Patty [Jenkins"] success with [Wonder Woman] only solidifies more for studios that there's less to fear with a female protagonist", explained Mangold.

It's the success of Patty Jenkins' "Wonder Woman" that's seemingly kept comic-book movie Lowther Mangold on the path to develop the Laura/X-23 project.

James Mangold didn't have much else to say about it at the moment, but that's enough to let fans know that the Logan spin-off featuring the young Dafne Keen is in the works. Here is what Parker had to say about that: "Yes, there are other facets of that character and some others potentially to explore in their own way".

Though I would definitely love to see Dafne Keen come back as Laura, I'd also be happy to see Fox cast someone a lot older for a teen X-23.

However, as for Jackman, he doesn't plan on being involved in the production of the spinoff in any capacity. Scott was the original choice to play Wolverine in 2000's X-Men, but filming for Mission: Impossible 2, where he played a rogue International Monetary Fund agent, went over schedule, so he dropped out.

Though Jackman says that "great characters out live the actors that play them", it's still going to be mighty hard watching someone else step into the role of Wolverine. "But I will be lining up on the Thursday night at 10 pm to watch it though". Not having to weave characters and plot threads into other X-films gave Mangold the chance to craft a one-off tale that is light on world-ending spectacle but packs a heavy emotional punch.

Will X-23 pick up the mantle for Logan? "She is just phenomonal". Combine that with the Oscar buzz surrounding the genre-transcending Logan, and an X-23 spin-off sounds like a better idea by the minute. The movie grossed $616.7 million worldwide and 93 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes. She even goes on to don the Wolverine name and costume in the ongoing All-New Wolverine series by Tom Taylor and David Lopez. "But I think part of what has been opened up in this universe to all of us now is, drawing on different genre traditions, there are new pathways to be opened for new characters that populate this universe".

Logan now has an 87.5 ComicBook.com Composite Score, the second highest ComicBook.com composite score of any comic book movie.
