In an interview with Deadline, Mangold was asked when fans would see the black-and-white Logan. The site states: "After dancing around the question he confirmed [it would be on the Blu-ray]."

Mangold went on to explain that the reaction to the black-and-white images he released during the movie's production started him thinking about an entirely monochrome version of the movie.

"I think it surprised everyone," he said. "There is a kind of a running assumption that black-and-white is a turn-off for most people. It caused such an extreme reaction, and so much appreciation for these pictures, and then people immediately wondering if the film itself was going to be in black and white.

"We are giving it a whirl, and I think the Blu-ray will come out with a pass on it. I think it will be a very handsome black-and-white version of the picture."

Logan hit theaters last weekend, and has proven to be a huge success. The movie had a $85.3 million US opening, which is the highest first-weekend gross for an R-rated movie in March and fifth highest overall for an R-rated movie. So far, the film has made $254.6 million worldwide.

Earlier this week, a highly entertaining clip of star Hugh Jackman recording Logan's production sound was released--watch it here.
