The jumping-off point for the final Hugh Jackman Wolverine movie, Logan, was a self-contained story found in the pages of Wolverine in 2008 and 2009 called Old Man Logan. It details an incident in the life of an alternate reality Logan who’d become a pacifist in the wake of tragedy, and the villains of the world having finally “won.” It is often referred to, including by the writer, as Marvel’s answer to The Dark Knight Returns.
As it turns out, there are very few things in common between the comic and the movie. That is both good and bad. It is good because we are treated to two very unique and enjoyable artistic visions. It is bad because we well may never see as bonkers a story as the Old Man Logan books on-screen (In choosing the most insane moment, you might select the part where the Hulk eats Wolverine, only for the latter to burst out of the former’s stomach). We highly recommend watching the film and reading the books, although neither is at all dependent on the other.
Indeed, on the road from page to screen, plenty of things inevitably got changed, and the folks over at CineFix decided to walk you through every alteration.
