Los Angeles: The final film in the "Wolverine" franchise, "Logan" was met with some concerns at the studio for being a too dark in its tone.

The Twentieth Century Fox Film chairman, Stacey Snider has revealed that some people were worried how the James Mangold movie is going to perceived, reported Variety.

"Inside, there was real consternation about the intensity of the tone of the film. It's more of an elegy about life and death... It's not a wise-cracking cigar-chomping mutton-sporting Wolverine, and the debate internally became, isn't that freakin' boring?" said Snider.

The movie was marketed at a large scale at the Super Bowl which further created a fresh wave of social-media chatter about the raw nature of the movie compared with its predecessors in the successful Fox franchise.

With Hugh Jackman reprising his title role, the film is slated for release on March 3.
