While Logan gave us just about everything we wanted to see from a Wolverine movie, one thing missing was the original yellow costume!
While there was a nod to the yellow costume in Logan in the form of an action figure, I was hoping for something more.
Maybe we’ll get just that in the form of a Logan Blu-Ray extra as Hugh Jackman has taken to Instagram to tease the yellow Wolverine costume again.
Last month saw Hugh Jackman post an image of a Wolverine action figure with the yellow costume, and the latest sees Jackman post the yellow mask!
“THE Mask,” Jackman posted.
Fans in the comments are mentioning a Deadpool 2 appearance, but Hugh Jackman has said Logan is his last time as Wolverine.
It would be a nice send off if Hugh Jackman did don the yellow Wolverine costume somehow and somewhere. Let’s cross our adamantium claws in hopes it becomes a reality!
Regarding why we didn’t see the yellow Wolverine costume in Logan, director James Mangold previously explained in an interview (via Screen Rant):
I always feel a certain contingent of fans who are yearning for it. But the biggest block I’ve had – I’m willing to take the heat for it – is that, I can never get past, being a writer for these movies as well, that Logan is the least narcissistic of all the superheroes, any kind I can think of – Marvel, DC or anywhere else. What I mean by that is, who puts a special branded outfit on when they do good deeds? And why? The only reason you do it is so you can have some sort of trademarked claim and get credit for what you did. Nothing seems less Wolverine-like than the desire to put on a trademarked outfit , particularly canary yellow, and kind of prance about doing good deeds and have people go, “Oh my God! It’s The Wolverine!” At least the Wolverine, as I see him, that’s a real struggle for me and always has been. I somehow feel that if somehow we ever put Hugh [Jackman] into one of those outfits, people would not be happy. Essentially, it’s something that lives on the page and I’m not sure could live anywhere else.
