Written by  Cinemablend

Although it was released months ago, fans of the X-Men franchise still aren't quite over James Mangold's Logan. Hugh Jackman's final run as Wolverine was a capsulated and intimate story about the generations, and introduced Dafne Keen's X-23 into the franchise.

The young actress' performance has been universally acclaimed, with the fandom eager to see Laura return to the silver screen ASAP. Rumors immediately began swirling about a possible X-23 spinoff, with various members of the team eager to explore the possibility. And now Mangold himself has weighed in on what the film could be about.

At the premiere of Logan's black and white version, Logan Noire, James Mangold spoke about where a possible X-23 film would go. He said it would be:

I don't know about you, James Mangold's comment to Screen Rant seem like a great jumping off point for a possible X-23 spinoff. Keeping the story focused on a very human issue at its core will result in a more grounded superhero journey; exactly what Mangold managed to accomplish with Logan.
