Hugh Jackman laid his claws to rest with Logan. The actor became synonymous with Wolverine after having played the character on-screen for 16 years. The Aussie star had decided to kiss the X-Men character goodbye via James Mangold's Logan. However, Jackman has now opened up about everything that unfolded the day he, Mangold and Dafne Keen recorded Wolverine's death scene. The actor shared details of the emotional scene with Anne Hathaway during an interview for Variety‘s Actors on Actors issue. 

Jackman revealed that the scene was shot on the day a stunt sequence was planned. "I remember when we shot that scene, we were shooting very high altitude, and there were thunderstorms going off everywhere, and we had to shut down. He just said, ‘We can’t do this big stunt scene. But we’re just going to do the death scene.’ I’m like, ‘Like, now?’ He goes, ‘I’m just going to have you and Dafne, and if you could just do that.’ I’m like, ‘All right.’ He knew that’s best for me," Jackman revealed. 

While it was a sudden change of events, Mangold made sure Jackman was given enough time to bid farewell to the character. "We got there and we’re shooting the scene. Dafne was 11. She was fantastic. We shot Dafne, and she turned around in two takes and he goes, ‘Let’s just kick out. Let’s do another.’ I said, ‘You sure? I feel like–‘ and he goes, ‘Man, let’s just stop the clocks. Let’s not worry about everything. This is the end of 19 years. Sit it in for half an hour'", Jackman recalled. 

"Him allowing me — not just as an actor, but as Hugh — to remember that moment. It was a luxury that I’ll never forget," Jackman added. We don't know about Jackman but definitely cried our eyes out when we watched Wolverine laid to rest. What was your reaction? Let us know your thoughts int he comments below.

Seeing the character in 9 movies for 16 years you think that there never going to be an end. And then it's time for a final bow to a character so iconic that when you see that final scene its emotional for the fans.

I find it hard still because a three part old man Logan would have been a better way to go out. Brawling with the Hulk. Who wouldnt want to see that. That's RDJ money.

I'v followed X-MEN from when i was young now im 57yrs and still love it. 1 of the people I loved is Wolverine I'v seen all the movies. The last one called Logan it was hard to see him die as well as the professor. No one can play the roll of wolverine like Hugh Jackman. Wolverine your cariter will be well missed.

I will admit I was sad to see Wolverine die, I will admit I did cry. Hopefully the little girl can carry on the Legacy; if they do anything else with the storyline.

I said bull **** Logan aka Wolverine doesn't die haven't you seen days of future past what a terrible script to totally go against another movie out out by the same franchise so glad we don't have fox in charge of xmen of Wolverine anymore

You'd have to take into account that days of future past rewrote the time line as opposed to the admantium skeleton being placed over the bones it has now been fused over top and around which means yes, Logan has now lost the ability to create immunities like he once had. Even in the comics it stated thats why he had turned more animalistic after magneto stripped the adimantiom off him as his mutation was able to speed back up from the crawl. So completely coating his bones now leaves him more vulnerable and human.

Logan was one of the best movies that year. One of my favorite movies in the past 5 years. I was definitely emotional at the end.

If Logan was terrible, what film in the series did you think was more thoughtful or well-conceived? Just curious...this was one of the better films I saw in the series. The plot, acting, effects, and action were all above par in my opinion.
