Logan Draws Inspiration From Such Westerns as “Shane”

Is there any chance this film will not be depressingly morbid. Per article below? No, no chance at all:( REC

People can argue about originality in storytelling for years, but it doesn’t change the fact that no matter what, every form of art has been influenced by something that has come before it.

The final Wolverine movie, Logan, is no different. Drawing inspiration from the Old Man Logan story by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven, Logan director James Mangold also drew inspiration from classic westerns.

Recently, after a screening took place of the first forty minutes of the film, a book of stills was released to the attending audience. One of the stills included dialogue from the 1953 western, Shane. The particular scene comes from the ends of the film right before Shane rides off.

Judging solely on the trailer and images, it isn’t hard to tell that Mangold is clearly paying homage to westerns and specifically drew its inspiration from Shane.

Just by watching the trailers, you can tell the movie feels gritty and rough. The particular scene depicted below may parallel Wolverine not being able to stick around the same place for long.

You can read the excerpt from Shane below!

In 2024, mutant births are severely in decline, and people aren’t sure why. A government-type operation is turning mutant children into killing machines. From this, Logan emerges as a mentor to a mutant girl, who has two claws instead of his three.

Logan is in theaters March 3, 2017.
