Logan end credits scene confirmed for March 3
Rumors began circulating last week that, despite there being no post-credits scene during the critics screenings of Logan, 20th Century Fox had added an extra 3 minutes to the film’s official runtime. Now, Collider is confirming that Logan will definitely have an end credits scene when it hits theaters on March 3, though they do not confirm the nature of it. Having seen the film, we can tell you that there is no dire need for a Logan end credits scene, as the film tells a perfectly self-contained story that barely relies on continuity with the rest of the franchise, and also carries a sense of closure that does not beg for a sequel. However, the after-credits stinger is a tradition audiences have come to expect, so let’s hope whatever they’ve added doesn’t cheapen what comes before.
Set in the near future, the film follows a weary Logan (Hugh Jackman) as he cares for an ailing Professor X (Sir Patrick Stewart) 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, being pursued by dark forces.
Also starring Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Stephen Merchant, Elise Neal and Elizabeth Rodriguez, Logan is coming to theaters on March 3, 2017. Directed by James Mangold (Walk the Line, The Wolverine) and scripted by David James Kelly, the new film will mark the ninth (and said to be final) time that Jackman has played the Marvel Comics character on the big screen.
