    Why would he need to protect his identity?

    I'd kill to see Wolverine eventually wear one of his comic costumes in a movie eventually. The whole argument about it looking 'stupid' or 'goofy' are invalid because I've seen some pretty good fan made costumes that make it look good in real life.

    i wouldn't want him to wear it but i wouldn't mind seeing the costume in like a Samurai styled costume in the background and Logan kind of notices and likes it. it'd be a nice nod to the fanboys

    I don't know these pic shows with a Hollywood budget and actor in little better shape than me can make the whole costume work.

    Well, if it hasn't been an issue in the four prior movies, it's not going to be one in this one. And you you know, it would look stupid as hell.

    If they can make Batman's look good I am confident they can make Wolverine's look good as well.

    No, Wolverine's mask is one that will always look dumb in live-action settings. Also, again it comes down to what purpose would have to wear a mask like that? If he is trying to hide his identity for whatever reason, why would he do it in such a dumb looking fashion?

    Batman still looks kinda ridiculous, more so now since Nolan's film are really grounded.

    Wolverine's cowl is basically a variation on Batman's anyway.

    Cowl looks great there. He seems more Wolverine than Hugh... they could totally incorporate that.

    I think Wolverine's comic costume is way cooler than Superman's or that goofy Batman's. If Wolverine made his first appearance in comics wearing street clothes he probably wouldn't have made it this far.

    Maybe he could attend a costume party, that the yakuza are having, wearing it. Once he's alone with the Silver Samurai he can take off his mask and say "Remember me?", beat him up and then let the credits roll.

    If the movie's going to have some Samurai/ninja themes then I think some kind of an homage to the comicbook mask design can be made as a ceremonial mask/helm. All it takes is giving it some cues that will make it resemble the original and not necessarily be identical to it. It can be done.

    The mask can be done with the right context.

    There's no context that will make that mask not look ridiculous.

    I think they should save the mask for the reboot (which might happen in the next 10-25 years). I don't see Hugh Jackman wearing Wolverine's mask without looking goofy and costumey.

    The thing is wolverine doesn't care about hiding his identity seeing as he barely knows it. So it is even more illogical for him to start wearing a mask.

    There's a reason even in the comics wolverine is often shown without his mask, in that he needs it the least probably of any masked hero.

    His time in Japan provides the context which would be more plausible and less ridiculous than donning a t-shirt with a tie dyed skull.

    I think that people have become accostumed to seeing Wolverine without a mask on film, the whole "it's too ridiculous" and "it wouldn't work on screen" arguments worked in 2000, they don't work anymore, there have already appeared dozens of Batman masks, the nigh owl mask is also similar, and even Spider-Man's mask worked.

    For this particular film set in Japan, no i don't think it should be used, but in a future X-Men film they should think about it, they can make his mask and costume very cool.

    Like I said in an earlier post I think a mask can be included in a nod to or cameo sort of way. If you're dealing with samurais and ninjas it can be incorporated in a ceremonial type of way.
