Default Hugh Jackman IS The Wolverine Thread

Didn't realize Hugh didn't have his own thread! Here it is. Carry on.

Since comics are such Serious Business™ now maybe Batman should stop wearing his mask as well. He could wear a bandana or ballcap. And Superman could start wearing sweatpants. Gritty realism!

I think why it works for Batman is pretty obvious - the costume keeps his identity a secret. It also worked for Captain America because he basically started out as a glorified mascot for the US Army. His costume represented his image as Captain America - makes total sense why he would still wear his mask - he's a symbol.

Wolverine, nor many other mutants other than Deadpool, have any reason to wear a mask other than "Well they wore it in the comics." I mean, okay that still doesn't mean it wouldn't look ridiculous on a real live person. Plus, it doesn't particularly add anything to the character or add any sort of meaning. Why have it?

Hawkeye never wore is traditional mask, it doesn't sound like Scarlet Witch will have her useless headpiece in the TA2 - I don't see what the big deal is with Wolvie not wearing the silly mask. Not everything in the comics needs to be translated to film.

Because they're not Batman there's no reason to wear a mask? Masks aren't comic book concepts. If Wolverine were ever in a realistic situation where he needed to hide his face, he shouldn't wear a mask?

It's gonna happen sooner or later. Mangold obviously is interested in using it. Given his take on Wolverine, Im sure it will be in good use if we see it.

If Wolverine ever has to be incognito theres perfect reason to use it.

I think that some people are exaggerating. "A mask and costume doesn't fit Wolverine's character, especially given how it's been established in the films" doesn't not equal "NO superheroes should wear costumes." Just because you don't think that ONE PARTICULAR character needs/should have a costume does not mean that you hate costumes in general. Some people here don't seem to get that distinction.

Exactly. I may not think the mask fits for Wolverine, but there are certainly other superheroes I know and love whose traditional costumers from the comics would work perfectly for them on film too.

I'm not saying for the entire movie. But a sequence where he has to hide his identity. A covert mission type thing.

I agree. There's nothing clownish or silly about superheroes wearing costumes.

Surely anyone he would want to hide his identity from wouldn't have much trouble ID-ing him with a mask on. The movie version of Wolverine just doesn't strike me as the kind of guy who cares if someone sees his face.

Well like someone else said, if he is identified as being with Xavier that could be bad. Anonymity dude. Anonymity.
He could be on camera breaking into a building or something.

Something I just noticed in the trailer: in the shot of the three guys shooting at Wolverine, it looks like there's a tiny Japanese flag sitting on a table/tv/etc in the background. Maybe he's in Japan.

Why isn't this trailer available on Apple.com (Quicktime)

If the naysayers and Singer-haters are correct and most of Singer's announcements are to try and one-up other competing blockbusters, maybe we'll get something tomorrow just in time for ASM2 trailer.

It is, but I can only find the HD versions on hdtrailers.net. Unfortunately, they're not direct download mirrors.

Best way to justify the costume would be if he stays with the X-Men in the 70s after the timeline is reset. He'll need a suit and given that the First Class suits were yellow and blue, it would actually match the team.

I think the only problem with that, and I forget where I read this, but the timeline doesn't reset until he goes back to the future. So, if he stayed in the 70s, the whole point of him travelling back would be lost.

But then again, I suppose he could always go back a second time. Which will probably happen, as I believe whatever he does might lead to a darker future.

It's Wolverine's mind that travels, not his body. His future consciousness is transferred into his 1970s self. Once the past has been 'fixed', then the mind of future Wolverine travels back to the body of future Wolverine.

So there is still a Wolverine in the 1970s, and he could easily wear a more comic-accurate costume.

Anyway I think it can be pretty cool for the character to have this fight without remembering the reason and without having time to adjust to the past.

^^ that would be an interesting way to wake up in the past, suddenly 3 guys burst in and shoot him

already would give his past more depth then origins ever did
