When Hugh Jackman first debuted as Wolverine in 2000’s “X-Men,” no one could have predicted that the actor would spend the next 17 years playing the role, nor the immense influence he and his movies would have on the burgeoning superhero genre. Though Jackman’s tenure as Wolverine has finally reached its bloody end, the Walmart-exclusive version of the “Logan” Blu-ray promises to pay tribute to the iconic actor and character with some cool art.
A nine-poster set will come with the Walmart version of the film. Each of the different posters will depict Jackman playing Wolverine in one of the different X-Men/Wolverine movies. Additionally, the backs of the images can be combined in order to make a single piece of “Logan” art.
The Blu-ray itself will feature deleted scenes and audio commentary from director James Mangold, which are fairly standard features. However, it will feature two interesting additions: “Logan Noir,” the black-and-white version of the film slated to start its own theatrical run on May 16; and “Making Logan,” a behind-the-scenes documentary.
“Logan” is set in the near future, years after the epilogue of 2014’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” In it, a weary Logan, whose healing factor is failing, cares for an ailing Professor X in a hideout on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
“Logan,” which has earned $604 million worldwide, stars Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Boyd Holbrook and Stephen Merchant. The film will come out on Blu-ray, 4K and Ultra HD on May 23, 2017.
