A New ‘Logan’ Image Throws Wolverine Into a Neo-Noir Film
Another day, another movie image. This time, it’s another artfully composed photo from the set of Logan, showing an older Wolverine walking around the side of a car. It’s a really gorgeous image, the colored lighting and vibrant sunset in the background evoking a kind of neo-noir feel — which is good new for those of us who wish superhero movies would try venturing into other genres every once in a while.
This one is the most colorful of the production stills so far, as most of them have been either in black and white or had a more muted palette. The trailer seemed to keep that kind of muted gray disaster film look, which is probably appropriate for the material. This photo doesn’t tell us a whole lot about the plot, but it looks like our clawed friend might be about to take something out of a trunk. If anything, it’s yet another indication of Mangold’s expert visual eye — I for one think that if the movie has even half this amount of visual style, it’ll be a real treat to look at.
