The anticipation and hype of the movie Logan continue to build in light of its upcoming release on March 3, 2017. The film will be focusing on the older version of Wolverine, while introducing a new character, X-23 (disclosed by the official Logan Instagram). Also, this would be Hugh Jackman’s final appearance for the savage, clawed mutant in the X-men series. “It was a gut feeling,” said Jackman to ET about being Wolverine. “I don’t know how many more egg white omelets I can eat.” We hear him. This dude has been keeping his magnificent physique for 17 years, and that does not come without hard work – and boring meals. Really, who can blame him for leaving?

Wolverine has always been an important and huge role in the Marvel universe. He’s known for – his fighting abilities, his uncanny hairstyle, and not to forget – his deadly retractable claws.

His claws, along with his whole bone structure are fused with Adamantium, which is a very dense, iron-based alloy that is practically indestructible. We have seen Wolverine cutting through pretty much everything, but exactly how strong is this Adamantium material?

Hydraulic Press vs Adamantium

Hydraulic Press Channel, a Youtube channel owned by Finnish, Lauri Vuohensilta and his wife Anni, is notorious for showcasing numerous destructions of assorted stuff – from handphones to even bowling bowls – much to the delight of their viewers. In light of the upcoming Logan movie release, Hydraulic Press Channel has partnered with 20th Century Fox to test how tough is this legendary metal alloy, Adamantium, is.

But they might have met their match this time round. Check out the video below to see how Adamantium fares in this awesome challenge:

I supposed you would have known how utterly the Hydraulic Press has failed after watching the video. And you know that there is really no such thing as Adamantium, don’t you?
