Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (23)
Sir Patrick Stewart lost twenty-one pounds to play Charles Xavier as elderly and sick. Stewart claimed that he had a steady weight since he was a teenager, and had never deliberately lost weight before. Hugh Jackman genuinely held Stewart in all of the scenes of Wolverine carrying Professor Xavier.
Hugh Jackman induced dehydration for forty-eight hours prior to filming scenes of Wolverine shirtless, losing water weight. He added that the method is dangerous, and no one should attempt it at home. Jackman used this same technique five years earlier to create his emaciated look for prisoner Jean Valjean in Les Misérables (2012).

This is the last movie in which Hugh Jackman will play Wolverine. He has cited his age and his skin cancer as factors in him retiring from the role. He also said that having a discussion with Jerry Seinfeld played a part in retiring the character, as Jerry talked generally about how he wanted to make sure he never got to a point with Seinfeld (1989) where audiences were weary of seeing it anymore, saying, "Oh, it's you again." Jackman felt fortunate to have avoided this for Wolverine, and wanted to ensure it never happened.
(At around fifty-five minutes) When Laura and Charles are watching Shane (1953), Charles mentions remembering seeing the movie as a child in his hometown. This was entirely improvised by Sir Patrick Stewart, because Shane was one of the first memories he had at the theater as a child.
When Charles Xavier suffers from his seizures, Hugh Jackman did not act as if he was being pushed away. Instead, he was held back by a rope pulled by two men in order to give a more realistic portrayal of being restrained.

According to Director James Mangold, allowing the movie to be R-rated was important, not so much for violent content, but for style: "For me, what was most interesting in getting the studio to okay an R-rating was something entirely different. They suddenly let go of the expectation that this film is going to play for children, and when they let go of that, you are free in a myriad of ways. The scenes can be longer. Ideas being explored in dialogue or otherwise can be more sophisticated. Storytelling pace can be more poetic, and less built like attention-span-deficit theater."

Hugh Jackman admitted to having two lingering regrets about retiring from the role of Logan/Wolverine: that he never appeared in an Avengers movie, and that he never appeared in a Deadpool movie. Jackman said that had he known Deadpool (2016) was going to be such an enormous hit, and that his performance as Wolverine was a recurring gag in the movie, he might have postponed his retirement.

Professor Xavier's Psionic blast was done by shooting shaky footage and then re-stabilizing the frame in post. Resulting in footage containing strange motion blur with smearing effect, that is both organic and very unusual. The team shot the sequences slightly wider than was needed so that shots could be blown up to hide the edges of the stabilizing effect.

Dafne Keen (Laura) was eleven years old at the time of filming, and so was not allowed inside the casino, even with all the correct shooting permits. So some shots were done with Keen on a greenscreen, and some scenes were shot in the actual casino with Keen's body double Cheramie Martin, who is over eighteen, but of a similar build to Keen.

After Hugh Jackman started his dialogue, Keen interrupted him by yelling at him in perfect Spanish, something that was later included in the finished movie. Her dedication for that scene during the audition was praised by Jackman and Sir Patrick Stewart.

Professor Xavier's Psionic blast initially was conceived as a huge pulse of energy, much more akin to the kind of superhero powers seen in other movies. But Director James Mangold was against that treatment, he wanted to keep everything much more naturalistic. So Visual Effects Supervisor Chas Jarrett evolved the idea from the initial pulse wave idea, into a mind control field that caused people to become immobile. Unable to move and breathe or function properly, the psionic blast would eventually kill those around him. This is a malign version of Xavier's frequently used ability to freeze large groups of people, as seen in the original X-Men trilogy.

What seems like one long shot of Logan running and impaling a bad guy on a tree is actually four separate takes of different stunt guys running, combined with head and neck replacements, digital claws, background fix-up, and CG gore.

Sabretooth was originally going to have a small role, where he helps Wolverine, X-23, and Professor X when they arrive in Oklahoma. Liev Schreiber was even approached about reprising his role from X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). There was also going to be a scene where Logan encounters a kind of "Underground Railroad" for mutants, which might have had a cameo from a well known character. Both scenes were removed, because the team behind the movie didn't want to have an abundance of cameos, or mutants in the movie.

However, he later expressed interest in reprising the role for the X-Men drama Legion (2017).

At the beginning, Professor Xavier is rambling on incoherently and starts rattling off a Taco Bell advertising copy. This oddly ties into the movie's plot. The characters start off hiding in Mexico, while Taco Bell serves "Mexican" fast food, and while not one of the things Xavier says, for years, Taco Bell's slogan was "Make a run for the border". The climax involves numerous characters running to cross the U.S. border, not into Mexico, but into Canada.

When Logan pulls up to the smelter the railroad tracks appear to be to wide. To reinforce this the ore car wheels in the background are entirely too narrow for the tracks.

Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

The explanation of why there are no mutants in the last twenty-five years in America is that high-fructose corn syrup, derived from genetically modified corn-crops, was altered and spread by Dr. Rice to specifically cause sterility and suppress the mutant gene. Two scenes in this movie allude to this: The first was when Willy Munson tells Logan about the corn while fixing the leaked pipes in the fields; the other one is when Dr Rice mentions corn cereals to Logan at the climax.

This movie is based on the X-men storylines "Old Man Logan" (an aging Logan sets out for one last adventure), "Mutant Massacre" (mutants being slaughtered), "X-23" (Wolverine encounters a female infant clone of himself pursued by her creators), and "The Death of Wolverine" (a dying Wolverine has a last adventure).

In The Wolverine (2013) (also directed by James Mangold), Logan's travel companion Yukio predicted that Logan would die with his chest ripped open, and his heart in his hand. Although this ultimately didn't happen in The Wolverine (2013), many fans point to the fact that she may have been predicting his death in this movie: Wolverine lying down with his chest ripped open, holding the hand of his daughter (his flesh and blood, and therefore his symbolic "heart"). Mangold later confirmed the notion via Twitter.

There was a flashback originally filmed that explains what originally triggered Charles' dementia, and thus causes the catastrophe at his Westchester school. The flashback was to have been shown during the seizure attack at Harrah's in Oklahoma. While James Mangold said that this was cut because having less information would allow the audience to focus more on character, co-Writer Michael Green said that, having seen both versions, the omission of the flashback hits home harder than having the flashback included.

In the "Death of Wolverine" comic arc, Wolverine is poisoned due to adamantium (being a heavy metal) retaining radiation from the Nagasaki nuclear bomb, for which he was present. In this movie, he is slowly being poisoned by his skeleton for unrevealed reasons, possibly the same ones. This could also be similar to the "Old Man Logan" comic arc, as the older version of Logan suffered a similar problem of being poisoned due to his healing powers weakening in his advanced age, as his healing factor is a major factor to protect him from being poisoned by the adamantium.

Hugh Jackman originally didn't want Logan's death in the movie. He envisioned an ending similar to Unforgiven (1992), the story of an assassin who just can't leave behind his violent lifestyle. That movie concluded with the assassin killing numerous more people, but surviving, forcing him to live on with this dark side of himself. However, Director James Mangold was always committed to kill off Wolverine at the end. He convinced Jackman that Wolverine, who is plagued with immortality and a violent past, had finally deserved his peace in death. Mangold wanted Logan dying next to X-23, the younger version of himself, as it was something "interesting on numerous psychological levels."

The Munson family being murdered by X-24 in their farmhouse after taking in Logan, Charles Xavier, and Laura was similar to how the old couple were killed in their farmhouse by Agent Zero in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) shortly after meeting Logan.

If you watch Xavier's death scene in the black-and-white noir version that is available on the Blu-ray and 4K release, you can easily see that the person who walks into the room is not Logan, but X-24.

Though far from a traditional X-Men movie, there is still plenty of imagery using the letter X. When Wolverine is injured in a battle, the blood on his forehead takes on an X shape. Likewise, at the end, when the cross on his grave is laid on its side, it resembles the letter X.

The adamantium round Logan carries with him is a .44 Magnum. The bullet itself is called an "Xtreme Penetrator" and is shaped like an X. At Charles' burial, Logan has blood on the right side of his forehead in the shape of an X. At the end, when Laura shoots X-24 with the adamantium bullet, it strikes him in the left side of his head.

Logan's funeral scene wherein Laura lowers the cross into an "x" is nearly identical to an early scene in 'The Outlaw Josey Wales' where Clint Eastwood's character lowers his family's grave marker from a cross to an "x," signifying the beginning of his quest for revenge.

Logan is a similar movie to Road to Perdition. In this movie, Logan (Hugh Jackman) hits the road with his daughter Laura (Dafne Keen) and Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) as they are pursued by Transgien and Logan reluctantly takes Laura to Eden across from the Canadian border. The movie ends with Laura crying when a fatally wounded Logan dies in her arms and Laura leaves with the mutant children to Eden. In Road to Perdition, Michael Sullivan (Tom Hanks) hits the road with his son Michael, Jr. (Tyler Hoechlin) when Connor Rooney (Daniel Craig) murders Sullivan's wife and youngest son. The movie ends with Michael, Jr. crying when Sullivan dies in his arms when he succumbs to a fatal gunshot wound and Michael, Jr. goes to live with the farm couple who nurses Michael back to health.
