No, not for me it has no backstory and you really think most people in the audience won't question why after seeing him for more than decade without a mask why wolverine would suddenly randomly choose to put one on?

They didn't have a big backstory for the costumes in the previous movies. They provided some context, but didn't go about giving them a backstory like they did in Batman. Introducing a costume with a mask in the proper context wouldn't really get the "he doesn't need/want a costume/mask" conversation you see on these boards by the average cinema audience. I'm not saying it needs no explanation and that he'd just suddenly put one on, just that it doesn't need much in the way of one for people to buy into it.

Look he don't have to wear it constantly only in a action scene, give it night vision or thermal abilities for better vision at night, some excuse to wear it, and the same excuse for the look of it could be used that batman uses, it is meant to scare or look intimidating in the night or shadows.

Wth would Wolverine need night vision goggles? He's already got heightened senses including night vision.

he only has night vision in the video game, his x-force mask gives him infra-red that is why the lenses are red in x-force.

Maybe they could do a sarcastic comment towards it like they did in X1.

no thanks.
I'm over directors taking snarky shots at the source material because they think theyre just too damn cool for it.

it'd be like if they gave Cap hardcore body armor and said "Pssh, this is a war, what're ya gunna do, carry a shield?? Guffaw!"

If they were to do it, it should be padded and bulky.

I would imagine his respone to wearing a mask would be the same response he gave to Charles and Magneto in XM:FC...

In the movies we've gotten so far, yes, that probably would be his attitude
and with Singer helming DOFP, there's no hope of seeing it there.
All we can do is pray Mangold throws us a bone.

I hope so. I'd like to see the suit, if only for one moment. Sadly, the closest we've come to that is Jackman's character in Flushed Away...



....LOL jk ;-)

That's just awful. Please, nothing like that.

Neither a mask nor a colorful costume does a Wolverine make. The scene discussed earlier in this thread would be a nice nod, but him walking around in that thing would just be silly.

Even Marvel didn't give Hawkeye his classic costume in the Avengers Movie, and that studio gave Captain America 3 versions of his outfit, including the silly tights one for his stage act. Beyond a nod or a short scene, I guess we all should stop hoping that Wolverine will ever wear anything resembling his classic attire.

I don't see why people hate the X-Force suit, it looks badass. Much better than any other suit he's had.

Fair enough. Maybe just a ninja-esque mask would suffice.

I could actually see him wear this, way before the classic mask.
