Hugh Jackman has an update on his condition post cancer treatment

Logan will open in theaters everywhere on March 3, 2017, not counting those sure-to-be-big Thursday preview screenings. "Thank you for asking", he said at the Friday night debut of the film at the Berlin Film Festival.

"Logan is a forthright, muscular movie which preserves the X-Men's odd, exotic idealism", he wrote in his four-star review.

Speaking to We Got This Covered, Mangold expressed hopes that he may revisit the key new character that will be introduced in "Logan" - young Wolverine clone X-23, played by child actress Dafne Keen.

That might have been considered more of a risk before Fox's Deadpool earned $783 million worldwide past year, sans 2D and without China, on a $58m budget.

In addition, the director also confirmed "I definitely know that Hugh and I will work together again", even if it isn't on another Wolverine movie.

In fact, the English actor believes that Hugh Jackman is only saying that Logan will mark his final performance as a way of promoting the film. This is a film that elevates its genre, succeeding precisely because it's different, and because it strives to be the Wolverine movie fans have always wanted to see. James Mangold, who directed The Wolverine and Logan, has been doing press ahead of the release of the new film. The film is a relatively straightforward western drama, a "famous gunslinger's last rodeo" type adventure not unlike The Shootist and it is quite successful in its respective goals. When I began to understand some of the content of this film, I was all for it.

"I'm hesitating because I could totally see how that's the flawless fit".

THR's Sheri Linden called Logan "an affectingly stripped-down standalone feature, one that draws its strength from Hugh Jackman's nuanced turn as a reluctant, all but dissipated hero", while Entertainment Weekly's Chris Nashawaty called it "both the most violent film in the series and the most sentimental one".

When Logan comes out, it'll be the end of an era.

The film establishes its template in the credits sequence, as our scruffy anti-hero is brutally attacked by would-be carjackers who then meet grisly ends.

Logan continually subverts your expectations, but in its impactful ending, it still somehow feels like the only way the movie and Wolverine's long journey could end. This is far from the glory days of the X-Men. So what does he remember of his last day playing the mutant?

In a recent profile in the New York Times (via Heroic Hollywood), Jackman opened up a little about his decision to step away from the character after Logan.
