'Logan' Deleted Scene Discusses Sabretooth With 'X-Men: Origins' Reference

"He was in a program with me."

It seems Sabretooth was in Logan after all, in a sense. 

In a leaked scene (which will likely appear on the Blu-ray due out May 23) from the final installment of the Hugh Jackman Wolverine trilogy, Logan is woken up by Bobby (Bryant Tardy), one of the mutant children he meets toward the end of the film. 

Bobby is playing with a Wolverine figurine and a Sabretooth figurine — both toys are more reminiscent of the '90s cartoon characters than those depicted in the films. Bobby asks Logan if all the stories from the comics are a lie, even Sabretooth.

"Sabretooth was real," Logan responds. "He was in a program with me, kind of like [the experimentation] they did to you."

Bobby asks, "So, you did some mean things with him?" 

Logan says yes. 

The pirated scene was taken down almost as fast as it was posted on YouTube, but Heat Vision managed to catch it while it was live. 

Two different actors have brought the character of Sabretooth to life in the X-Men movie franchise. Most recently, Liev Schreiber played the role in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Before that, Tyler Mane played the role in the film that started it all, 2000's X-Men. Mane told The Hollywood Reporter in March he would have loved to reprise the role for Origins, but it just didn't work out that way. 

Logan comes out on digital HD on Tuesday and Blu-ray on May 23.
