The Wolverine (played by Hugh Jackman) and Jean Grey (played by Famkee Janssen) has one of the most complex relationships in the “X-Men” franchise. Unfortunately, the romance ended In “X-Men: The Last Stand” when Logan had no choice but to kill her after she lost control of her powers.
Fans of the pair would be delighted to know that Grey was not forgotten entirely in “Logan”. Director James Mangold thinks that a deleted scene about Jean may be included in the Blu-ray.
Mangold revealed that the deleted scene appeared during Logan, Professor X (played by Sir Patrick Stewart), and Laura aka X-23’s (played by Dafne Keen) dinner with the Munson family. He also said that he sketched out different dinner conversations for that scene, one of them involves Logan’s “marriage”.
“Mrs Munson asks Logan if he’s married, and Charles says he was – but he killed her. Of course, he wasn’t really married, but what that then spawns is Charles waxing poetic about Jean Grey, and it’s a really cool moment. Both Hugh and Patrick were amazing. The problem was, it created an incredibly powerful lead brick in the middle of the only moment in the movie where there was a breather. Even I, with my taste for the dark, felt that it was one too many. Things go pretty shitty within seconds after that. I think (the deleted scene) will make it to the Blu-ray,” he told Empire Magazine.
Of course, fans will be curious to hear what Logan has to say about his former love, considering the fact that he altered the timeline in “X-Men: Days of Future Past”.
