    Even if it just makes a cameo, or lasts five seconds in the movie, I really want to see Wolverine wear his mask. It is just so iconic, I really want to see it on screen at least once in the movie. Does anyone feel the same way?

    If you do want the mask, which would you prefer? The yellow and blue or tan and brown version? I think for the movie it should be tan and brown, since it feels more gritty and believable.

    I've always liked the Yellow and Blue, but I wouldn't mind either.

    I think they should show different suits for different situations..I wouldn't mind seeing his Uncanny X-force suit and/or mask as well.

    I don't know if I would want to see wolverine in a mask for 2 hours (and the way movies are being made now, heroes are ALWAYS taking off their masks). However, even if it would just make a cameo lol... I WANT TO SEE HIS MASK! :D

    Even if there was a decent narrative purpose for him to wear his mask in the movie, it's still just too ridiculous looking.

    But his mask is so iconic, it would be awesome just to see it at least once in the movies. And maybe it gets torn or something so then he loses it and you never see it again.

    I don't really see Wolverine wearing the mask in his next movie. I expect him to wear casual or samurai clothes.

    Why samurai? I don't like the idea of this movie taking place in Japan. Reminds me of Elektra...

    Could they work something out of the samurai theme?. I don't know much about japanese culture, but couldn't they show some sort of mask that resembles the comic book counterpart? I still got to read the Claremont-Miller series, but I don't know. Should be fun to see the mask, if only as an easter egg.

    Id like to see the mask, either the brown or X Force black. Theres a way for it to work. Eventually someone will add it.

    No, Samurai masks only cover the mouths. There would be no reason to do a reverse on that.

    I get so sick of " it would look weird or out of place, they need a good reason to do it and ect... the only reason they need is he has worn one from day one in the comics and since it is a comic movie there it is. If it is well done and can be made to look good, and I know it can be, on a Hollywood budget. i should be in the movie, never the yellow and blue, black costume nor that mask, but brown and tan or grey and black would look awesome, the ears do not have to be huge .

    Now that X-Men: First Class includes the yellow uniforms, its possible we could get a mask for Wolverine.

    "what would you prefer, yellow spandex"?- cyclops

    What looks good on the page, might not look good on the screen though. And frankly Wolverine's costume is too ridiculous to do live action. The yellow and blue costumes worked in First Class worked, because they were flight suits and so there was a purpose for the team to wear them.

    As I mentioned earlier, he doesn't have to wear the mask for the entire film. Even if it was a cameo or something. heck, maybe its sitting on a table in the background?

    I think I've seen Wolverine wearing a Samurai outfit, maybe it was in the comics or in the cartoons.

    Hugh Jackman would look fantastic in a Samurai outfit.

    I definitely want to see them do something different with wolverine, that's why I would like to see him in his costume. If it was done right, imagine how awesome it would look!

    I've been wondering how they could do it, they'd have to use dark colours I don't think you could do the yellow and blue. Maybe the orange tan could work.

    It wouldn't work in any color.

    I would at least like to see some concept art for what it could look like. I'm sure they considered making a Wolverine mask before for the previous films, and had some designs during the planning stages.

    They did, and they dropped it because it didn't that good, and there was no logical reason for him to wear a mask when no one else on the team did.

    Well those designs suck, they could have come up with better than that.

    I don't know, it look kinda good. But yes, I guess there was no reason for Wolverine to wear a mask. Now if they manage to give him a mask in a somewhat samurai/japanese fashion...

    They could have given him a mask in the X-Men origins film. When he teamed up with William Stryker, they could have had him wear a mask to protect his identity, and made uniforms for their team. But maybe the samurai idea could really work...

    It wouldn't work. Samurai masks either just cover the mouth or whole, face they aren't made of fabric.
