So, he's in Japan so he just decides he needs to wear a yellow mask with blue wings sticking out on it? Great context.

Yeah, but samurai masks/helmets don't look like Wolverine's mask in any way, shape, or form.

I think they can just show the Cowl hanging on a wall and Logan just looking at it and walk on by. And that's it

I never mentioned anything about the comic book mask and its various incarnations. "Assumptions are the mother of all f***ups."

Here are just a few examples of helmets. I could totally see some kind of stylized helmet using cues from Wolverines mask and again, this would strictly be in a easter egg or cameo capacity. A nod so to speak to the comic.

I prefer the way he is right now. No mask, no costume, only white tank and jeans. Fits the character way more than yellow spandex. Wolverine is an individualist, he likes being alone and tries to give the less sh** possible about everyone else's problem. To me he seems more like the type who wants to live his life quietly in the Canadian Rockies as shown in the movie, but bull***** came his way, and he had no choice but to follow it.

When in front of enemies, he's all out. He don't care about the others seeing his face and seeing who he is, because he is entitled to beat them anyway.

He doesn't need any kind of costume. It works perfectly in the comics and animated series, but on screen, it would go in the complete opposite direction of his character. Although I was introduced to Wolverine and the X-Men with the suits, I don't want to see them on screen (Unless they show it as a proposition to Wolverine and he rejects it) When I watched the first X-Men I didn't even notice the drastic change in the suits, it fit so well.

And please, no Japanese-looking suit. He's not a 14 years old girl who follows trends depending on where he is fighting.

These helments would look silly on Hugh Jackman.

Of course they would as there would really be no context for it. My suggestion is that since there really is no real reason for Wolvie's mask to begin with FOX can give us an easter egg of sorts. There will be samurai in this movie so you can show a helmet with nods to the wolverine mask since some of them already have some aspects in them already, therefor the samples I posted.

If no one questions why Captain America wore such a "silly" costume, why would they question it if Wolverine did it? As long as it looks good, the general audience won't care.

Because regardless of Caps costume looking silly there was a reasonable reason explained for it. What's Logan's reasonable reason to wear a silly costume? He just wants to where one for kicks?

Make him do something stealthy and ninja-ish, and put him in an x-force inspired costume. BOOM. done. silly costume explained.

well he doesnt need such ridiculously big head-fin-things

Go back to his early look with the small fins
Even lately, artists have been toning those down quite a bit
His X-Force look is not really over the top at all for live action

I never understood why Wolverine wore a mask anyway, other than he's got a costume to match it. What is he protecting with that mask?

Wolverine has always been more samurai inspired than ninja though. It wouldn't make sense for his character to dress that way.

Also, the X-Force mask would look just as ridiculous as a yellow and blue, or tan one.

I think there was something like that on the DVD of X-Men 1. I don't know if it was Hugh Jackman wearing the suit but when they saw someone wearing the classic Wolverine costume, they all laughed.

I posted pics of the that on the first page. The reason they didn't go with a mask, because it was ridiculous looking and they didn't see a reason for him to need one, considering no one else on the team were trying to hide there identities.

I think the problem with wolverine is that his comic counterpart's costume probably makes the least sense for his characters personality compared to almost any other superhero.

Why would a burly rough and tumble guy who grew up in the 19th century canadian wilderness want to don such flashy colors as blue and yellow on his suit and that extravagant mask to boot? also he doesn't have to hide an identity as others have already pointed out.

Why do any of them wear uniforms that mask their identity if they're already outed? It's a question that's been asked in the books, and they pretty much just hand wave or lampshade that fact every time.

I always saw it for Intimidation purposes. When Logan was first introduced in comics didnt the canadian government kind of want him to stand out as their Superhero? Kind of like Cap America. The Mask solidifies that. I remember in an X comic, an X character states they wear what they do to remind people they are superheros. I would like to see it eventually which Im sure we will. Maybe not in this film. I guess as some have suggested they could throw it in this film as an honor or ritual type thing.

If any comic suit is introduced later into X films his X Force would proably work best. Maybe give him some technical communication devices to give it more reason.

Good point, and he doesn't have to wear it throughout the entire movie. Maybe use it just once in just one potential scene.

I don't get why some people are so keen to dismiss any idea for Wolverine to wear a mask/costume combo in this film. Sure he doesn't need to hide his identity, but was the costume ever about that in comics? It's his iconic look, you'd think more fans would be keen to see a good adaptation of it in a film.

Personally I think an adapted samurai armour that resembles the red and tan costume could be pulled off if given the hollywood treatment.

But also even if it was samurai armor, it would still look pretty damn ridiculous, not to mention really clunky looking.

I dont think the samurai idea is necessary, the x-force or brown and tan costumes could look awesome onscreen.
But seriously, any other character's costume gets changed for a movie and it's "OMG they're destroying the character! just adapt what's on the page!!"

But with Wolverine, its: "that's ridiculous, this suit can't be pulled off in real life, just put him in jeans and a tshirt"

Bryan Singer brainwashed everyone into thinking its impossible!
