Fox May Be Worried About The Overall Dark Tone In LOGAN
The early word on the new chapter in Wolverine’s cinematic journey Logan is that it’s a pretty dark and gritty affair. Gone is the wise-cracking mutant, in favor of a far more brooding and existential tale, and according to the boss of Twentieth Century Fox, it caused a little concern.
The studio’s chairman Stacey Snider admitted at a conference in California yesterday (as reported by Variety):
“Inside, there was real consternation about the intensity of the tone of the film”
“It’s more of an elegy about life and death. The paradigm for it was a Western, and my colleagues were up in arms. It’s not a wise-cracking cigar-chomping mutton-sporting Wolverine, and the debate internally became, isn’t that freakin’ boring?”
However, Snider counters such an argument, suggesting it’s time to take a different look at Logan.
“Isn’t it exciting to imagine Wolverine as a real guy and he’s world-weary and he doesn’t want to fight anymore until a little girl needs him?”
Interesting and kind of scary to hear, isn’t it?
Logan comes out on March 3.
