DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE Director Reveals Who Demanded Hugh Jackman FINALLY Wear Logan's Yellow Costume

When our first look at Deadpool & Wolverine was released last July (it's close to a year to the day), jaws were left on the floor with the reveal that Hugh Jackman's Logan would don his comic-accurate yellow costume. 

The closest we'd ever come to that was a deleted scene from The Wolverine which teased the idea of the clawed mutant one day suiting up. Unfortunately, by the time X-Men: Days of Future Past rolled around a year later, Logan was back in black leather. 

Jackman has said he was keen to finally suit up in Deadpool & Wolverine, but it turns out that it wasn't his idea. In fact, it wasn't Ryan Reynolds' or filmmaker Shawn Levy's either; instead, it was down to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. 

"He said, 'Yes, but he wears the yellow. Can he finally wear the yellow?'" Levy told fans in Shanghai, China at a recent fan event when asked about Feige's reaction to adding Wolverine to the Deadpool threequel. "And we began."

We really shouldn't be surprised that this was Feige's doing and, based on what we've seen of Jackman in the costume, it was the right decision.

In a separate interview, Levy was asked about his friendship with Reynolds (before Deadpool & Wolverine, they collaborated on The Adam Project and Free Guy). 

"I wonder if we benefited from meeting at a stage of life where we'd all proven we deserve to be at the party," he wondered. "No one met in their early 20s where we're all just scrapping it out for a seat at the table. We met with seats at the table in our 30s, in our 40s. I think there was a confidence each of us brought to these relationships."

Levy also acknowledged that the anticipation "creates spoiler anxiety" that keeps him up at night. "But it also keeps me rigorously focused on the highest standards for this movie, because it brings the highest expectations," he adds.

"With a movie like this, where people seem to be letting us know they intend to show up, I want to make sure that we build the most joyous, rollicking good time in the theaters that we possibly could."

Stay tuned for more on Deadpool & Wolverine as we have it. 

Shawn Levy directs Deadpool & Wolverine, which stars Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, Emma Corrin, Morena Baccarin, Rob Delaney, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, and Matthew Macfadyen. The movie is written by Ryan Reynolds & Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick & Zeb Wells & Shawn Levy.

The trades have confirmed that Jennifer Garner will reprise her role as Elektra, with Wesley Snipes, James Marsden, Famke Janssen, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Dafne Keen, Channing Tatum, Blake Lively, singer Taylor Swift, and even a Hulk now among those rumoured to make an appearance. 

Kevin Feige, Reynolds, Levy and Lauren Shuler Donner produce with Louis D’Esposito, Wendy Jacobson, Mary McLaglen, Josh McLaglen, Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, George Dewey, Simon Kinberg and Jonathon Komack Martin serving as executive producers.

Deadpool & Wolverine arrives in theaters on July 26.

Of course it was Feige. We knew this. Half you lot like to dog on the man these days, forgetting he’s the mastermind behind all this shit. Without him, the genre would consist of inconsistently bad DC movies and those floptastic Sony spinoffs.

@FireandBlood - I'm not seeing much different now. Inconsistent MCU, DC, Sony. What's the real difference?
dagenspear
dagenspear - 7/8/2024, 8:50 AM
@FireandBlood - Also, I don't know if he wrote the movies that I think worked.
FireandBlood
FireandBlood - 7/8/2024, 9:02 AM
@dagenspear - The difference is, the MCU is still way more consistent than the other two, like it always has been. There’s a reason DC is rebooting and the MCU isn’t.

@FireandBlood - at this point, rebooting is a better thing than staying in mediocrity

Good luck to the mcu next year and beyond. No amount of fanservice from d&w can fix it and wouldve been better if they rebooted as well
FireandBlood

@vectorsigma - When the MCU releases its eight consecutive flop in a row like DC, then maybe they should think about rebooting. Until then, I’d worry more about that Superman movie they’re making, as it might just be their ninth...

@FireandBlood -
And he was involved in the first X-Men movie with all that leather to begin with. He was the impetus not to compromise costumes. He made sure Cap was Cap and Thor was Thor.

@FireandBlood - as much as I want to fully agree, I can only go halfway. While he did greenlight an undeniable incline of good in MARVEL, it seems like he hit a hard left ever since

hit the scene. I can only imagine what may have thrown him off cause. He ended well with Endgame, and it's been clunky chucks of mostly "meh" ever since.

I expect DP & Wolverine to Be "Bros²: The Super-powered Edition". We'll see.

@FireandBlood - lol, going against the only savior of the mcu last year?

@vectorsigma - How’d his last DC movie fair? In fact, he hasn’t even had a successful movie without Marvel. Hm… 🤔

@FireandBlood - wanted to say the same thing. The MCU is still masterclass, but one that other studios try to copy and fail. Unfortunate side effect I guess

@FireandBlood - Feige gets credit for the good he has done but should receive scorn for the bad too. Thor L&T and Ant Man 3 are as bad as the worst of the DCEU or Sony movies.

@vectorsigma - Its not time to reboot, give it a few years and if they are unable to turn the ship, then we can revisit the question.

I mean its like i said if the problem is them focusing more on quantity over quality, then rebooting will not fix shit if quantity is Disney's primary goal with Marvel.

dagenspear - 7/8/2024, 6:11 PM
@FireandBlood - Says you. I've never been a major supporter of the whole MCU like a lot of others.

I think only parts of the MCU actually works writing wise and I don't think Feige wrote those things, so his placement, as far as I think, may more be attributed to him having some ability to position a situation and not deserving of credit for the quality of the works themselves.

Being more popular or not isn't what I'm using.
dagenspear
dagenspear - 7/8/2024, 6:13 PM
@bkmeijer1 - In what? Having some movies that are solid, while the rest is bland and/or poorly done? He didn't write these things, as far as I know.
dagenspear
dagenspear - 7/8/2024, 6:15 PM
@Goldboink - Let's not presume like he's owed something for overall quality. I don't think he wrote the projects that work to me.
dagenspear
dagenspear - 7/8/2024, 6:17 PM
@eagc1995 - Why does having quantity mean there'd be no oversight on quality?
dagenspear
dagenspear - 7/8/2024, 6:19 PM
@vectorsigma - No. There's Only One Savior at all and He is God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is Lord!

bkmeijer1 - 7/9/2024, 2:14 AM
@dagenspear - never said he wrote them. But he oversaw them. In the end he has to sign off on staff, cast, story, script, editing and probably more.

Like them or not, 30 billion across 33 movies is fuсking impressive and something most studios can only dream off.
dagenspear
dagenspear - 7/9/2024, 4:53 AM
@bkmeijer1 - Writer and director is more what I align with quality over the producer, LORD willing.
bkmeijer1
bkmeijer1 - 7/9/2024, 11:39 AM
@dagenspear - oh yeah definitely. It's just someone had to sign off on it. Feige's role is small, but crucial

I’m just curious as to how they’re going to transition to a new Wolverine beyond Jackman after this. Or will we have to wait another 10 years?
braunermegda
braunermegda - 7/8/2024, 9:07 AM
@JustAWaffle - perhaps they introduce the new one in this movie and when the xmen movie comes out it happens in that reality (or that wolverine comes to the merged reality if that's the case, idk, something like that). I don't think they'll wait another 10 years
KennKathleen

@braunermegda - 🎯

Rebooted Wolverine in end credit fight scene with HULK. Brown and orange costume. Masked.
JustAWaffle
JustAWaffle - 7/8/2024, 11:43 AM
@braunermegda - @KennKathleen -

Both great ideas. Hope it’s true.

It’d be a helluva coverup if they already had a guy on the dock. But the mask idea would remedy that.

"DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE Director Reveals Who Demanded Hugh Jackman FINALLY Wear Logan's Yellow Costume..."

Um, I thought it was the fans finally wearing him down over two decades. Huh, don't give a sh1t what the fans think about a beloved character but some dude who is slowly declining as the boss is what did it.

Don't get me wrong, I don't care about his height or wardrobe, I think Hugh is awesome in the role...no, iconic. But to say it took this long for him to wear the costume when fans were always on his case about it, though I do truly believe it's mostly directors, writers, and the producer's fault, it's ridiculous it took this long for the comic-accurate suit...especially for a guy who has played the same iconic comicbook character more than anyone else has represented a comic character, 24 years to get it done.

People can hate on Marvel Studios all they want but do t hate on Kevin Feige. That dudes been pushing for comic book movie accuracy more than any individual working for a studio.

TheVisionary25 - 7/8/2024, 9:08 AM
Not surprising since there’s also a story of Feige back when he was a associate producer at Fox helping with even deciding how Wolverines hair would be so the dude wants to atleast be as close as possible to the aesthetics of the character.

Anyway , Jackman looks great in it and hope we see him in the cowl soon!!.
