8 Movie Fan Theories That Were Confirmed By The Creators

8. Logan's Death Was Foreshadowed In The Wolverine

20th Century Fox

Despite a lacklustre final act, 2013's The Wolverine was a massive improvement over the dreadful X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and it got fans excited for even more solo Wolverine movies further down the line.

But nobody was prepared for just how fantastic Logan turned out to be. Gloriously violent, tightly scripted and emotionally satisfying, the movie also packed a heartbreaking death scene that provided a bittersweet farewell to a character we'd been following for 17 years.

And many fans - after noticing a connection between this scene, and a quick line midway through The Wolverine - speculated that this death had been smartly hinted at right under our noses.

In The Wolverine, Logan chats with Yukio, a mutant who can foresee people's deaths. Here, she tells him that she's seen him die, and goes on to describe his death to him: "I see you on your back, there's blood everywhere. You're holding your own heart in your hand."

And this is exactly how Logan meets his end; on his back, with a big, bloody hole in his stomach, clasping his "heart" - in this case, his daughter's hand. After interacting with a fan on Twitter, director James Mangold confirmed that he was indeed seeding this death by adding that line into The Wolverine.
