Hugh Jackman Gave Masterful Performance In One Scene

In Logan, Charles experiences a seizure that triggers a psychic shockwave, instantly incapacitating all those within a certain radius—large enough to devastate an entire hotel and casino. Evidently, if his power were unchecked, it would lead to fatal consequences for those caught in its wake. In a pivotal moment, Logan switches off the radio just as the broadcaster begins to discuss the events in Westchester, leaving the details of the casualties to the imagination.


During the seizure scenes, Hugh Jackman didn’t merely simulate being pushed away. In an effort to enhance the authenticity of the portrayal, he was physically restrained by a rope pulled by two individuals, effectively conveying the sensation of being held back.

One prevailing theory regarding the Westchester Incident posits that Charles suffered a colossal seizure that tragically claimed the lives of the X-Men residing at the X-Mansion. Logan, benefiting from his regenerative abilities that offer a degree of resistance to seizures, managed to intervene, albeit not swiftly enough to rescue his comrades.

The X-Men series underwent a gentle reboot in 2014 with the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past. This film arrived during a period of intricate timeline shifts within the franchise due to the mix of prequels and sequels.

During the film’s promotion, Jackman openly voiced his aspiration for the integration of the X-Men into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). He expressed his interest in witnessing a collision between the ‘X-Men’ and the Avengers. Jackman’s words were as follows:


“I don’t know what’s happening behind the scenes, but I think it’s fantastic. I actually just asked the other day, I said, ‘I don’t know what the legal situation is, but why don’t these companies come together? Why isn’t it possible?'”

During that period, X-Men and its associated characters were under the ownership of 20th Century Fox, while Disney possessed the characters featured in the MCU. Jackman also expressed his eagerness to co-star alongside Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man and engage in a cinematic showdown with the character.

Logan can be streamed on Disney+.
