These Awesome Scenes Didn’t Make The Final Cut In ‘Logan’

Published

Logan blew audiences away. Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine came with a drastic shift in tone–and fans dug it. As with most films, there were different versions of the movie along the way, and several scenes didn’t make it to the final cut. Here are five things that didn’t make it into the finished product of Logan.

The Westchester Tragedy

Throughout the film, the “Westchester event” is ominously alluded to. From what we can tell, the event concerned Charles Xavier losing control of his powers and killing a large number of people, many of whom were his own X-Men. In the original script, the event was depicted in a flashback, but the screenwriter scrapped it in favor of the more subtle approach.

A Different Farm House Dinner Scene

The farmhouse dinner scene was one of–if not the only–happy scene in the movie. But director James Mangold originally had a different take on it. “[It was] another whole direction I took for the actors in that sequence, they produced a whole other wonderful scene,” said Mangold, referencing the improvised scene that made the final cut.

X-23 Talks Earlier

For the first half of the movie, X-23 doesn’t say a word–until exploding at Logan. The original plan was to have her talk earlier, and for her and Logan to be bantering throughout the film. Mangold scrapped that in favor of allowing the relationship to slowly develop throughout the film.

Extended Road Trip

There were more road trip scenes planned in earlier versions. However, Mangold had to cut down for pacing reasons. “[A] couple of different moments that were on the road in the journey where I think you can tell I’m playing with the very limits of what I—there’s a certain pace anticipation with tentpole movies and I think I’m playing at the very outer edge of a very adult, serious movie pace where I have no hesitation and did in delivering kind of high octane action sequences.”

Slower Pace

Building off the last point, the movie would’ve had a slower pace overall. Throwing in more leisurely road trip scenes and playful banter between Logan and X-23 would’ve made a slow movie even slower. But it’s a tribute to Mangold’s filmmaking ability that he was able to sell audiences on such a slow and depressing superhero flick in the first place.
