Logan - better angels of our nature

Logan - better angels of our nature

When Hugh Jackman put on the adamantium claws of the mutant Wolverine for Marvel’s adaptation of the X-Men comics to film, I suspect he didn’t think he would be playing that character for the next 17 years, including a three-film arc featuring only Wolverine. “Logan ,” the last of the Wolverine films shows an aging hero, bitter towards the world but with a heart in the right place that motivates his defining moments.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Darkness and Light

If you’re a big fan of the ever-expanding Marvel cinematic universe, you’ll love the addition of Ant-Man to the mix.
