Old friend. There are so many mutants in "X-Men: Apocalypse.
There was talk of an X solo movie following the acclaim of Loganbut is this spinoff still in development?
Unfortunately for Scott, filming overruns on Mission: Impossible II - where he played the main villain - forced him to drop out and a relative unknown named Hugh Jackman was cast instead. The impact the character had on the actor's career can't be understated, as his performance was praised and he quickly became a leading man in other blockbusters.
After seventeen years he decided to exit with Loganwhich was an emotional sendoff to his take on Wolverine. The story is set in a bleak future where mutants have been all but wiped out, and Logan is looking after an elderly Professor X Patrick Stewart. Logan received critical acclaim in and proved to be a fitting goodbye to Hugh Jackman's run.
Dafne Keen was also praised for her work and the movie ends on a note that could set up more adventures for Laura, but is the planned X movie still happening?
While promoting Logandirector James Mangold spoke several times in interviews that an X spinoff was very possible. During an October interview with Mangold, producer Hutch Parker and Hugh Jackman for THRthe director touched on the project once again, stating the success of that summer's Wonder Woman had opened studios up to the great potential of female-fronted superhero movies.
Mangold didn't go into specifics about what an X movie would be about, though Parker commented it wouldn't necessarily be the same genre as Logan.

At this time, Mangold was confirmed to be working on a treatment for the movie with Craig Kyle, who created the character. While X hasn't been officially declared dead, it's looking very doubtful now.
While Marvel's plans for their version of the X-Men has yet to be made clear, they will likely opt for a clean slate. In a interview with The PlaylistJames Mangold reaffirmed he was very interested in making an X movie, but doubted it would happen "in the near future.
She stated she had been told by Fox following Logan's success that a spinoff could happen, but heard nothing else in years since. Keen also commented she would be more than ready to reprise the part, should the project ever resurface.
A part-time hobby soon blossomed into a career when he discovered he really loved writing about movies, TV and video games — he even arguably had a little bit of talent for it. He has written words for Den of Geek, Collider, The Irish Times and Screen Rant over the years, and can discuss anything from the MCU - where Hawkeye is clearly the best character - to the most obscure cult b-movie gem, and his hot takes often require heat resistant gloves to handle.
