Can’t make it to the May 16, one-night-only showing of Logan in the black-and-white-Johnny-Cash-music-video style it always dreamed of being? Well, don’t worry on missing out: it looks like the film’s home release will include the alternate version of the film, too.


Announced through The Hollywood Reporter this morning, details of Walmart’s special edition of the film—which will include a special nine-poster set depicting Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine over the years, and a new poster for Logan itself on its reverse—confirmed that the black-and-white cut of the film, dubbed Logan Noir, will be part of the film’s special features package.

Here’s the full list of special features included:

  • Logan Noir: a black-and-white version of the film
  • Audio commentary by director James Mangold
  • Deleted scenes with optional audio commentary by Mangold (Blu-ray only)
  • Making Logan — behind-the-scenes documentary (Blu-ray only)

Presumably the posters are the part that’s exclusive to Walmart’s release, and the features themselves will be standard wherever you choose to get Logan from when it releases on Digital HD on May 16, and on Blu-Ray May 23. But either way, it’s great to see fans will be able to experience the Johnny Cash edition of Logan even if they can’t make it to the theater this month.

James is a News Editor at io9, where you can find him delivering your morning spoilers, writing about superheroes, and having many feelings about Star Wars. He wants pictures. Pictures of Spider-Man!


I don’t think I will ever be able to watch Logan ever again. Not that it’s bad - it is pretty good. It’s just so damn depressing and sad that I don’t see myself going through that emotional wringer again.

I have a short list of film like that, that I refuse to watch because wreck me emotionally. The list includes things such as The Fox and the Hound, and the short in “Garfield’s Nine Lives” whith the young pianist and her fluffy white cat. Anybody else has a similar list?
