Logan Director is Interested in Making an X-23 Spinoff Film

X-23 Spinoff Film

In just a few weeks, Wolverine fans will finally be able to see their favorite Adamantium-clawed mutant in total R-rated, hyper-bloody action for the first time on the big screen. However, Hugh Jackman has expressed that he intends for this to be his final appearance as Wolverine on film, which would leave the X-Men franchise with a big piece missing. With this new film, we are receiving what may be both a new fan favorite character, and a successor to Jackman’s Wolverine legacy. Logan will introduce X-23 to the X-Men film series, and a new interview with the film’s director has revealed his interest in directing an X-23 spinoff film.

A new exclusive interview with James Mangold on We Got This Covered has shared his thoughts on the experience of directing Logan and his hopes for the future of the X-Men film franchise. While Mangold confirmed that this would be Jackman’s last X-Men film, he expressed that he intends to collaborate with the Logan star in another project in the future. When asked about making another comic book film, Mangold also shared his eagerness to return to the storyline that he begins with Dafne Keen’s debut as X-23 in the new film, saying:

”I think Dafne is incredible in the film and I would love to see another film about that character and that’s certainly something I’d be involved in. For me that was one of the big additions I brought to the table, this decision to try to make the film about family and to try to insert Laura and the pressures that would put and the idea about Charles ailing.”

While this by no means confirms that an X-23 spinoff film is definitely in the works, it would make sense for Fox to greenlight the project. Fan response to Keen’s presence in the film trailers has been quite positive online, and this film definitely seems to lend itself well to a “passing of the torch” between Jackman’s Logan and Keen’s X-23.

For now, we will just have to wait and watch the new film to see if Keen likes walking away from explosions without looking at them like Logan. What do you guys think about the possibility of an X-23 spinoff film? What elements from X-23’s comic storylines would you like to see in a hypothetical spinoff film?
