Hugh Jackman dons the adamantium claws one final time in "Logan," which hits theaters Friday. Jackman, along with co-stars Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Richard E. Grant, Eriq La Salle and Elise Neal took part in a special screening and fan event in New York Friday as they prepared to say their final farewell to the character.
Jackman, who first portrayed Wolverine in 2000, said the evening was somewhat bittersweet knowing he'd never play the character again.
"I think we got to the real bottom of this character and who he is," Jackman says. "In the end it's a movie about family."
Stewart believes what sets this film apart from earlier incarnations is the raw emotion you'll see on screen.
Fans will see, "Real people. Conversations. A lot of emotion and some sensational action," Stewart says.
