Logan will be re-released in black and white.
Director James Mangold has revealed that he has been working on a special black and white version of the movie – Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Marvel mutant Wolverine – and it will be released on May 16.
He tweeted: “Suggestion. Hard core B&W loving LOGAN fans should not make any plans on the evening of May 16th. Won’t be on a TV. To make a great B&W version of a film, the whole thing’s gotta be regraded & timed shot by shot (sic).”
When one fan questioned him: “The B&W version does release on Blu-Ray and DVD right?…”, he replied: “Yes, but it will be on big screens on the 16th.”
Meanwhile, Hugh, 48, recently revealed he and director James pushed for Logan, to be given an R rating so that they could portray the character’s dark side free from restrictions.
He said: “It seems to me that Wolverine may be one of the darkest, most complex characters in the comic-book universe. Every time for the last 17 years I’ve seen PG-13, a little part of me has winced going, ‘Wolverine would never be in a PG-13 movie’. All Jim and I were apprehensive about was taking off the seatbelt, taking off any kind of restriction and just diving into this character.”
But the 48-year-old star insists the movie hasn’t been given such a high rating because of violent content.
He said: “It’s not R rated because of the violence, although there is R-rated violence in it. That rating is about the subject matter, the way the characters are treated as well as the way the violence is depicted. I think this is far more realistic than anything we’ve done before in the ‘X-Men’ franchise and maybe many other comic-book movies, far more human.”
