Stream These Superhero Movies After Watching ‘Logan’ In Theaters
Those who are fans the X-Men franchise probably already bought tickets to check out Hugh Jackman in Logan, the film that takes place in the near future where the now older Wolverine struggles to hide who is really is after running into a young mutant who is being hunted by evil forces.
Some will be watching just to see Jackman's last stab at Wolverine, while others are more interested in the film's more gritty approach that follows in the footsteps of Batman vs. Superman.
