The Story Behind Wolverine’s Scars in ‘Logan’

In James Mangold’s Logan, Hugh Jackman takes one final turn in the role he inhabited for nearly 20 years: Wolverine, the berserk mutant who can heal from any injury and pop claws from his fists. In the new movie, set in 2029, Wolverine’s days with the X-Men are far behind him. He drives a limo and goes by James, suffering quietly as the adamantium alloy that gave him strength now slowly poisons his body. To create the dying hero, Logan director James Mangold looked to Oscar-winning makeup artist Joel Harlow and his FX studio Morphology.
