Wow! Now this could be epic!
Since 2000, the year Bryan Singer and 20th Century Fox first revealed to the world Hugh Jackman as the legendary X-Men character Wolverine on the big-screen, fans have begged to see the classic suit. Now it appears there may be the slightest chance that we see some version of the iconic suit in director James Mangold's highly anticipated final Wolverine film Logan hitting theaters next month.
Now some of you may not know this, but director James Mangold was actually going to feature the classic yellow and brown suit in his 2013 film, The Wolverine. Towards the very end of the film, there was a scene film where Rila Fukushima's Yukio gives Logan the classic suit as a gift. Check out the suit below.
The scene ended up being cut, but you can watch the awesome scene in the Blu-ray deleted scenes section. Now, surprisingly it appears that we may see that suit pop up in Logan! Yesterday Hugh Jackman took to his social media accounts to share an image of a Wolverine toy with the classic yellow and brown costume. He captioned the image, "The Original".
Could we see Jackman in the suit during a potential flashback scene during the film, or perhaps he retrieves the suit at some point during the film and kicks some bad guy ass. With Logan being marketed as the actor's final time portraying the iconic role, it would just be so beautifully emotional for them to have him in the suit at some point during the film.
It should also be noted that in the final Logan trailer, we see Jackman's Wolverine in a version of the classic suit in the comic book that X-23 is reading. With the X-Men in this film considered to be legends or myths, this lends even more credence to the suit appearing in the film in some form.
So are you guys excited for the possibility that we may finally see the Hugh Jackman in some version of Wolverine classic suit on the big-screen? I feel like it may be a slight disappointment if we don't at least see a glimpse of it. What about you? Sound off in the comments section down below with your thoughts. As always, thanks for stopping by ECMOVIEGUYS!
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.
