Comic Book movies these days are on a bigger scale than we’ve ever seen before. With huge budgets it’s surprise that Marvel and DC have been able to ramp up the scale of their latest movies, but one comic book movie studio has also shown us that you can put out great movies with lower budgets – and that’s Fox.
Deadpool had a budget of $58 million and is arguably one of the best comic book movies of all time. The next X-Men related movie that Fox will be releasing is Logan next march and while the $127m budget isn’t ‘small’, director James Mangold sat down with Empire and talked about his and Fox’s approach to the film…
“The goal was to make something human. We made an effort to scale back on the gloss and greenscreen.”
We could tell from the trailer that this movie, while still looking amazing, wasn’t going to be on as big a scale as other comic book movies this year such as Captain America: Civil War or Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. But if the movie ends up being as great as the trailer is pitching it to be, then we’re in for an unbelievable movie next March.
Hugh Jackman then elaborated on Mangold’s comments…
“It’s essential you see this as the story of a man who is struggling with mortality and legacy and whether the world has been better off with him or without him.”
These comments, coupled with this being Hugh Jackman’s final movie as ‘Wolverine’, as well as the speculated death of Charles Xavier, tells us that we are in for an emotional roller coaster in 4 months time.
Logan hits theatres on March 3rd 2017!
