In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
According to James Mangold, this film is influenced by the crime story The Gauntlet (1977), and the dramas Paper Moon (1973), Little Miss Sunshine (2006), and The Wrestler (2008); and the Wild West movies The Cowboys (1972), Unforgiven (1992) and Shane (1953) (Charles and Laura watch this film as a tribute).
What the fuck?
At the farmer's house after dinner, Charles addresses Logan as "Logan" although he had introduced himself to the family as "James." No one seems to notice.
In the closing credits, the words "Alpha Flight" appears under Camera Units. Alpha Flight is the name of a Canadian superhero group that Wolverine was originally a member of in the comics.
