Logan - Hugh Jackman in 'Sunseeker' Promo

Logan, Hugh Jackman's final performance as iconic mutant Wolverine, is generating much excitement ahead of its theatrical premiere due to the widely positive reviews hailing it as one of the best X-Men films yet. But before the movie was Certified Fresh, fans were eager to see what director James Mangold had in store because of a stellar marketing campaign. Outside of well-received trailers that didn't skimp on violence or intensity, much of the advertising consisted of cryptic black and white images depicting the characters and locations of Logan. There was even a viral promo that embraced this approach, showing Wolverine driving a limo.

This style was quite fitting for Logan, which embraces Western and film noir sensibilities to deliver a compelling character study unlike anything the comic book genre has seen. The black and white promotional materials were so effective, many would have been fine if the final product was presented sans color. That obviously won't happen when Logan opens on Friday, but fans could see a black and white version of the film at some point down the line.

When inquired about a black and white release by a follower on Twitter, Mangold seemed to indicate that is something currently in the works. Check out their exchange below:
