There are a couple of ways to interpret the series of events and how each mutant has lost their powers. 1. They're both getting old. At the time of Logan, Xavier is about 97 years old. Logan's physical body is reaching about 150 years old (although depending on the timeline shenanigans he could mentally be a lot older). Logan hasn't been kind to his body,...

Xavier was the person who killed the 7 mutants that died in the Westchester incident. In-universe, the reporter described that event as being nearly identical to the accident at the hotel when Xavier has a seizure, so we're obviously supposed to piece together the connection. We don't know for sure who those 7 mutants were that died in Westchester, but ...

It's 1953's western film Shane. Confirmed on thrillist.com too And the full dialogue was: Shane: I gotta be going one. Joey: Why, Shane? Shane: A man has to be what he is, Joey. Can't break the mould. I tried it and it didn't work for me. Joey: We want you, Shane. Shane: Joey, there's no living with.....

TL:DR ; 'Eden' as depicted in the comic book is not real, but is a representation of a real prospect for sanctuary. Gabriela never claims that the co-ordinates will lead the children to 'Eden', at least not in the form it is depicted in the comic book. It is only after Logan see's the co-ordinates in the comic book that he makes the assumption that this is ...

Leverage. Xavier's seizures cause everyone to be paralyzed. Logan's healing factor allows him some movement, but the closer he moves to Xavier the stronger the effect by Xavier is. By stabbing the walls, he uses them to climb towards an increasingly difficult to reach Xavier. It provides a hand hold he can push against, like rock climbing or climbing a rope.

There are a couple of reasons. Firstly, the movie is loosely based on the Old Man Logan comic books series. The basic concept of Old Man Logan—that of an aged Wolverine on a "buddy road trip" across America — was the inspiration for the 2017 Wolverine film Logan. Wikipedia More importantly, perhaps, the movie is about the man, Logan, rather than ...

We do not know what exactly happens to the X-Men in "Logan". The closest we are told is the radio news report saying that a year before the events of the film, the Westchester event consisted of 600 people paralyzed, and 6 mutants of the group known as the X *Logan Turns off the Radio*.... We know that mutants have become a negative population, having had ...

Because it symbolizes Logan's return to his heroic roots. The movie starts with him avoiding fights, hiding and scraping for money, being a shit to Xavier. By the end he does everything he can to save the kids, like he did in the past. The movie represents nostalgia for better times, while also representing the old passing the torch to the new generation. ...

The reasons behind the loss of powers of Logan and Xavier are somwhat different: Its unsaid, but it appears clear that we are meant to assume that Xavier is beginning to suffer from some form of dementia. The story is exploring what would happen to someone with such overwhelmingly strong powers, but who like many people start to see their mind degrade with ...

Genetically engineered corn used for corn syrup which is used as a sweetener in food and drinks. Discretely feed to the general population in order to remove the x-gene from said population. In the United States, cane sugar quotas raise the price of sugar; hence, domestically produced corn syrup and high-fructose corn syrup are less costly alternatives ...

No. Charles Xavier was sorry in that scene because he had just remembered the "Westchester incident", where one of his seizures hurt hundreds of people and even killed some. But the victims of that incident were (probably) random innocent people, not exclusively mutants, much less all the mutants in the world. The mutants are gone because Zander Rice ...

Will it be the last time? Until further confirmation, yes. “This will be my last one,” Jackman said, point blank, when asked about it on the Dr. Oz show earlier today. “It is my last time,” he continued. “It just felt like it was the right time to do it. And let’s be honest, 17 years. I never thought in a million years it would last, so I’m so ...

Having checked multiple subtitle files and repeated viewings, the line is simply: Well... It's got water and... It's got water. Fuck! Fuck! (Repeated Fucks) As mentioned, Logan was planning on taking Charles out to open seas, on a Sunseeker cruise boat. This was so Charles could finish out his life without being drugged, away from anyone that ...

It's unclear because Matt Nix said one thing early on and now he is saying something else, but ultimately it seems to be an alternate universe... Independent (from the Hollywood Reporter) January 25, 2017 Burn Notice showrunner Matt Nix is penning the script, having previously said of the show fitting into the wider X-Men universe: "If you look at ...

Well, there is no need to watch any previous movies in X-Men film series in order to watch Logan. However, if you have some character knowledge about Professor X and Wolverine, it'll be nice. This movie is set in 2029, after the events of Days of Future Past, but there is no link to it or any movie before this.

As I mentioned in the related question on the sister site, the only way in which this discrepancy has been explained is that the producers of Logan openly admit that they ignored continuity for the sake of story. As James Mangold explained in this interview: In order to make a different Logan, and a different tone of a Wolverine movie, we felt like we ...

Xavier killed them. It's easy to put 2 and 2 together. As said above the radio report talks about 600 people being paralysed and 6 mutants are heavily hinted to have died. Later Xavier starts to cry saying he's done terrible things and on multiple occasions through the film Xavier has a seizure and causes everybody nearby to be paralysed. The film heavily ...

As a Marvel Comic Character Caliban was originally a villain; this is no real surprise, as many Marvel heroes began their tenure as evil do-ers (the Avenger Hawkeye amongst them!) The fact he previously used to help transigen track mutants could be a reference to his Comic Book Origin Story, or the fact that he has appeared (although in a markedly different ...

Well, we can't really say that it's not real. But that comic book is specifically designed for the movie only. From The Wrap A young girl named Laura, on the lam from the scientists that imbued her with mutant powers, shows the book to Logan; he scoffs at it, suggesting that the comics are filled with lies and exaggerations. But, as Audouy indicates, ...

Charles' last words were 'Our boat... the Sunseeker,' the name of the boat they were supposed to take to escape. Logan's words were along the lines of 'at least there's water,' since there was a stream running alongside the grave.

The seizures mentally paralyse those within range. Professor Xavier's ability to stop the movement of a group of people (giving the impression that time had stopped) was seen in the second X-Men film: We know that he isn't stopping time, since the news report on the TV continues to play. In Logan we know that his brain ...

It's not explained outright in the movie, but the director kind of explains it in interviews prior to it's release (in response to the trailers, mostly.) It's been known in the comics world for a long time that the adamantium metal in Wolverine's body is poisoning him. The only reason he can survive such a process is because his healing factor is constantly ...

All the kids weren't from the same place, or at least not the same unit of the building. Rictor is obviously older and was not part of the kids that Gabriela had recorded. There were more kids than that. And keep in mind these kids were not given normal education. They were regarded as weapons, experiments and denied basic human contact. So they picked up ...

Logan is dying from Adamantium Poisoning. Prior to the scene in question though, he was brutally beaten by a younger clone of himself, adding to his existing injuries. He collapsed a day later, and it took injections of a green healing serum to help get him better. It still took 3 days for it to work enough to wake him up. They were carefully injecting him ...

As others have answered, the movie in question is "Shane". I believe one connection to the film is that in a lot of ways, "Logan" is more of a western than a superhero film. It has many of the standard elements you saw in an old western, such as revenge, redemption, protection of innocents against an invading force. Logan doesn't want to be a violent man ...

Logan, no matter how much of a selfish bastard he pretends to be, is still a bleeding heart. He is also rightly paranoid about being found. The phone was a clue to saving the kid, and evidence of how she found him. If Gabriela could find him, so could others. So he needs to find it to protect himself, Xavier, and Laura.

Original Answer1 One of the provided answers neglects to mention that Logan is deteriorating from the metal that was injected into his bones and both answers neglected to state that Xavior's "dementia" is a product of the drugs he takes to prevent the seizures. When he is off the drugs he does not suffer dementia. I've seen the movie a few times though and ...

Take a look around you - how much technology is around that wasn't around 13 years ago? How much wasn't around 13 years before that? The computers (desktops and laptops), cars, planes, flat screen televisions, cellphones, etc, that we have now are mostly refined versions of what we had then rather than fantastically futuristic things (by comparison). While ...

Short answer: We are never told specifically why Logan is limping. Several times throughout the film, there is mention of some ailment "inside me" which Logan suffers from. The ailment is never given a name, but we are to presume it is likely some form of cancer or something fairly nasty. (Correction: user- CyberClaw pointed out in the comments that Logan ...
