The X-Men films have been a bit hit-and-miss. The first X-Men asserted comic book movies were not on the way out. X-Men 2 proved it wasn't a fluke. X-Men: Days of Future Past was the most successful film in the franchise by far.
But the series also had a few stinkers. X-Men: The Last Stand was disappointing. X-Men: Dark Phoenix was a disaster. And the less said about X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the better.
But there is one thing that cannot be denied. The 2017 film, Logan, was a perfect way to conclude Wolverine's saga. Now, let's not pretend this is the last we will see of Wolvie on the big screen. Since the Ol' Canucklehead is the most popular X-Man, it's guaranteed he will be popping his claws in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the near future.
Although it would be great to see Wolverine up on the big screen again, some fans are a bit hesitant. Didn't the films already adapt the best stories? After appearing in seven movies (eight if you include his cameo in First Class), surely there are no more left to tell, right?
