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.
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, 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 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.
6 Directors Who Should Direct The Next ‘X-Men’ Movie
Rumors are swirling about Simon Kinberg possibly directing the next X-men movie for Fox. The longtime writer and producer of the franchise has been negotiating via the press to make the case for his directorial debut on X-Men: Supernova, a re-adaptation of the Dark Phoenix storyline he scripted. Personally though, I wish Fox would hand the franchise over to someone with fresh eyes.
With Logan proving that smaller, more personal stories work just as well (or more) than the average destruction-fueled rampage we saw in X-Men: Apocalypse, I want a director who can make the emotional and personal scenes feel like the most important parts of the movie. Remember the first X-Men movie where the emotional connection between Wolverine and Rogue was the most important beat of the story? Ahh, the good old days. Mutants, and the persecution they endure for their superpowers, are an allegory for the discrimination, bigotry, and racism that humans face every day. I’m not saying this movie needs to be outright political, but the franchise has a history of highlighting emotional barriers to distinguish the X-Men from the rest of the MCU.
