Wolverine Talks Sabertooth in This ‘Logan’ Deleted Scene
Fans of Hugh Jackman’s final Wolverine movie are about to have a pretty big month: not only does Logan return to theaters in a special black-and-white format on Tuesday, May 16, but the movie will be available on VOD that same date and on Blu-ray/DVD on May 23. A home video release, of course, means deleted scenes, and deleted scenes often have a habit of showing up online in the few weeks before the physical copy is released. And gosh, wouldn’t you know? A doozy of a deleted scene is now available for your viewing pleasure.
In this new clip (via Heroic Hollywood), Logan awakes in the mutant camp to find a young kid playing with Wolverine and Sabertooth action figures. Logan is then pestered with a few questions about his infamous enemy. Was Sabertooth real? Did he do bad things with Sabertooth? The scene doesn’t add a lot to the overall flow of the film — thus probably why it didn’t make the final cut — but it does hint at the degree of thought Jackman and James Mangold put into the final film. Logan exists in a kind of in-between world where the X-Men stories are both real and not-real; learning more about the boundaries of their world is one of the small delights of the film.
In case you were waiting to catch the movie on home video, here’s the full pot synopsis for Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine:
In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out 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.
The film also stars Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant, and Dafne Keen and, as previously mentioned, will be available in a variety of home video and streaming formats this month.
