It served THIS movie to have his claws removed. THIS movie. I don't understand the mentality of not using certain scenes because maybe they can sort of possibly do them better later on. That's how you get movies like Iron Man 2, Origins, etc. Sure you have to be able to see the forest for the trees but at the same time each movie should absolutely be able to stand on its own.
Why would it need to be in DOFP? It could have been saved for a future film. It would fit that story because Magneto is the staple X-Men villain. He and Wolverine have a history together now. Most importantly Magneto has the ability to make it happen and it would be believable.
Wolverine lost his claws in this film as part of some ridiculous scheme to drill into his bones and suck out his healing powers via a giant robot. This is the adamantium bullet all over again except this time since fanboys decided they would love this movie before it was released, this terrible plot device has been given a pass.
