James Mangold has just confirmed one fan’s theory that ‘The Wolverine’ contained the ending to ‘Logan.’ Thanks to being a geek, we all know that fan theories come from all levels of that make sense to pure insanity. Thanks to Twitter we can now quickly reach out to the creators of our favorite forms of entertainment. One fan sent his theory over to director James Mangold that the ending to ‘Logan’ had already been revealed to us in ‘The Wolverine, ‘ and the director confirmed that this was correct.

I should note right here that this contains spoilers for the end of ‘Logan’:


If you’re wondering when and where that happened, you just need to think back to when Logan was taking a ride with the mutant Yukio who can see into the future. While driving around she tells Marvel’s most famous mutant about his death in that “I see you on your back, there’s blood everywhere. You’re holding your own heart in your hand.”

You could think that we saw this play out on screen in ‘The Wolverine’ when a parasite has attached to his heart which has stopped his healing factor. He has to cut it out and briefly dies onscreen which fulfills the prophecy.

Or did it?

Enter into evidence what I will now refer to as “The Tweet”:

What a solid theory. However, it goes from theory to reality as Mangold confirms the Tweet to be true!

I honestly don’t know if Mangold was playing the long game here, remembered this line and played the death out this way because of it, or we all just really lucked out here. It makes you have to ask about Yukio’s power though if this was true. The events of ‘The Wolverine’ were undone from known continuity thanks to ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ so either some of them played out again or Yukio was able to see what would happen even with an altered reality.

Either way, it’s a fun little bonus for us all to geek out to.

Did you enjoy the end of ‘Logan’? Do you feel that Yukio meant this scene in ‘The Wolverine’ or was the prophecized “death” already fulfilled? Share your thoughts below True Believers!
