25 ‘Logan’ Rumors That Turned Out to Be False

20th Century Fox

The following post contains SPOILERS — both real and fake ones — for Logan.

The internet’s movie rumor patrol did get a few things right about Logan, Hugh Jackman’s third and supposedly final solo Wolverine movie. They correctly predicted that Logan’ female clone, X-23, would co-star in the film. Deadpool didn’t have a scene in the movie, as was reported, but he does have a little tease before it. They also anticipated that the movie would be loosely based on a Marvel Comics storyline called “Old Man Logan.” Of course, after that rumor was initially posted, it was also publicly debunked. You win some, you lose some.

Or more than some. As is often the case for big superhero movies like Doctor StrangeSuicide Squad, and X-Men: Apocalypse (which one site predicted would kill off Wolverine, which, uh, did not happen), there’s been a ton of speculation about Logan, a lot of it grossly inaccurate. One or two of these could have been true at some point during pre-production, but many of these were obviously not happening at the time they were published. Let’s correct the record, at least until the next big blockbuster. (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes out in May! Be here or be accurate!)
