Hugh Jackman has shared a photo of himself posing with the iconic Wolverine mask worn by Logan in the comics and it’s the closest we’ll ever see it get to his face.
Hugh Jackman shared the photo along with the caption: THE Mask.

While the classic yellow costume was teased during an alternate ending for The Wolverine, the costume itself is not something that would fit into the tone of the X-Men universe established by director Bryan Singer and most certainly not in Logan, Hugh Jackman’s final outing as the clawed mutant hero.
Logan director James Mangold also recently explained by that the costume itself isn’t something that makes sense for Wolverine as he isn’t looking to be noticed or take credit for his acts of heroism.
What do you think? Are you disappointed that we will never get to see Hugh Jackman in the classic yellow spandex? Or do you think there was a way they could have made the suit work in the X-Men and Wolverine films? The one seen in the alternate ending for The Wolverine certainly did not look bad. Sound off in the comments below.
The film stars Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant, Richard E. Grant, Eriq LaSalle, Elizabeth Rodriguez, and Boyd Holbrook. Here’s the official synopsis:
“In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X in a hide out on the Mexican border. But Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are up-ended when a young mutant arrives, being pursued by dark forces.”
Logan is now playing.
