DEADPOOL & WOLVERINE Rumor Reveals Why Logan Finally Wears His Classic Costume - Possible SPOILERS

A new Deadpool & Wolverine rumour sheds some light on why, after two decades of adventures, Hugh Jackman's Logan is finally wearing his classic - and very colourful - comic book costume in the movie...

We've now reached the six-week countdown to Deadpool & Wolverine's release, and as we write this, Marvel Studios still hasn't shared an official shot of Hugh Jackman wearing the clawed mutant's iconic mask.

We've seen plenty of images of the actor in his comic-accurate suit and the mask has been heavily featured in promo art and merchandise such as upcoming Hot Toys action figures and Funko Pops. For whatever reason, though, it's yet to make it into a TV spot or official still. 

Despite concerns from fans that the actor will don the mask for only a scene or two, it was recently reported that it'll receive at least 10 minutes of screentime. That's better than nothing, but why does Wolverine finally wear his colourful suit in the threequel?

According to scooper @MyTimeToShineH, Cyclops and X-Men repeatedly asked Wolverine to wear the uniform (to better fit into the team), only for him to repeatedly refuse. 

However, when this Logan Variant somehow failed the X-Men - supposedly resulting in their deaths - he decides it's his responsibility to wear it after being called back into action by Deadpool. 

This is interesting if true and Wolverine wearing the costume to pay homage to his fallen teammates is far more interesting than it just being a suit made for him by the TVA (which has been the prevailing theory until now).

"We almost did [the comic-accurate suit] in The Wolverine," Jackman recently recalled. "But from the moment I put it on here, I was like, 'How did we never do this?' It looked so right, it felt so right. I was like, 'That’s him.'"

"There are different sides of Wolverine we haven’t seen before in the movies. It was exciting for me… It’s great for Deadpool to have someone who will punch him in the face."

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 and even singer Taylor Swift 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.

I hope that’s true because I like that idea for this variant…

It ties well into his arc of redemption seemingly by having him honor his fallen teammates in that way.

If true it doesn't make any sense. Wolverine did have a costume in the foxmen universe. Two in fact. And wore them for missions like the rest of the team.

Don't get me wrong, I get the idea is he's a variant from a world where they had comic accurate suits. But you have to keep in mind the meta narrative at play. They're basically joking we haven't seen the suit because he didn't want to. Which isn't the case.

@Origame - Well, 2 possible points on that: (1) This Wolverine may not be from the FoX-Men universe where he wore the black suits and in this universe he NEVER wore a uniform at all, and (2) if this is the FoX-Men universe then sure he wore the black uniforms (although he never seemed too happy about it ("You people actually go outside in these things?"), but perhaps at some point the team wanted to go with their 90s colored uniforms and that was just too much for Wolverine so he never wore his (maybe he even just stuck with the black one).

Just throwing out a couple of explanations there. Plus remember that there's that scene in the trailer where he's kneeling down by what I presume are their grave stones and he looks pretty upset so maybe after visiting their graves is when he agrees to join DP and puts on the suit (assuming that that's not just Nova messing with his head).

@StSteven - you didn't read my second paragraph did you?
StSteven
StSteven - 6/14/2024, 6:01 PM
@Origame - No, I did, and I wasn't saying that you weren't considering that he was from a different universe where they wear the comic-accurate uniforms, I was saying despite whether or not he wore the black uniform in the FoX-Men universe, the Wolverine in "comic-accurate" universe may have never put on a suit because he didn't want to, as opposed to the Wolverine FoX-Men universe one who ultimately did.

Maybe I'm not explaining my thoughts very well or we're both just saying the same thing just two different ways. I can't tell 😊.

Origame
Origame - 6/14/2024, 6:12 PM
@StSteven - yeah we are. I'm saying it doesn't matter because it's a meta joke about why he wasn't wearing a suit. But his wolverine has always worn suits
StSteven
StSteven - 6/14/2024, 6:22 PM
@Origame - Okay, I getcha. Yeah, if they make that point then they may confuse the audience who are familiar with the FoX-Men and the fact that he wore suits there. So they'll have to make it very clear that he is not THAT Wolverine and THIS Wolverine never wore suits. Dunno, we'll see. Hopefully they don't dwell on it too much as I really don't think it contributes to the plot much overall. Maybe after visiting the graves he meets up with Wade who gives him shit about the suit and then Wolverine explains "In MY universe I never...". That's enough. On to the killing and sex jokes. 😉
StSteven
StSteven - 6/14/2024, 6:25 PM
@Origame - In fact it would be funny if Wolverine started to give some kind of explanation like "I never wanted to wear it but now I feel like I- " and then Wade just cuts him off mid-sentence and is like "Yeah, don't care. Ya wanna go kill some bad guys peanut?".

@Origame - If this is a variant then it is the case, i know that the fox universe wolverine used the black leather and the suit of DOFP, but this wolverine...the one that we are going to watch on DP3 never used his universe team costume and now is using it... its not so hard to understand

@NoobNoob - is no one capable of reading the second paragraph?

@Origame - i read it, but you are overthinking, "They're basically joking we haven't seen the suit because he didn't want to"

they are just giving a more deep reason for this particular wolverine to use it dude, nothing else

@Origame -

People are reading your second paragraph, but like most things you say on this site it's nonsense.
"They're basically joking we haven't seen the suit because he didn't want to."
How do you know? You're over thinking a rumored plot point and creating your own narrative for it just to give yourself something to criticize.

Like man, there's a reason so many people on this site have an issue with you, at this point you've gotta realise your personality is a dumpster fire right?

You're hopeless.

@TrentCrimm - oh, I'm sorry. Didn't realize it was so unreasonable to assume something was a meta joke in the third entry of a franchise all about meta jokes. 🙄

Suit looks great. Wish it wasn't Jackman, but I'm keeping an open mind and hope he surprises me.

@TheManWithoutFear - Who's your ideal choice to replace him. He was great but too tall. Let's make Logan into a runt again lol. My choice is Jeremy Alan White from The Iron Claw and The Bear. Not due to the look but because he plays angry and emotionally vulnerable so well.
TheManWithoutFear
TheManWithoutFear - 6/15/2024, 3:04 AM
@SodaBurps - I don't really know actors, so I don't have a pick to replace him. I just sort of want a fresh take on Wolverine.

Back in the day, when The Chicago Code aired, I wanted Jason Clarke. But I have no idea now if that's a good pick (probably not).
SodaBurps
SodaBurps - 6/15/2024, 9:49 AM
@TheManWithoutFear - That's actually not a bad choice at all. He was really good in Mudbound and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I could see it.

I hope when Marvel recasts Wolverine, he's more comic accurate, and I also hope he wears the earth tone suit from the Claremont/Miller mini-series. IMO, his best suit.

@Izaizaiza - Or maybe theu went to this over-designed MCU-ish suit, Astonshing-like (it is great though), and we'll have an even more classic suit with the new Wolverine.

@Izaizaiza - Brown suit Wolverine is my favorite superhero costume of all time. I got into comics right around when he switched to his blue and yellow. But when I found out about his older one I collected and read every issue I could find.

I have a dirty secret to reveal.

I have been on this site since a few months after its inception, and I have read comics for decades and watched all the Superhero movies since Superman in 1978.

I just want the movies to be good or great.

But I don't give a sh!t if the costumes look exactly like the comics. (*Activates shields*)

That isn't always practical, and occasionally you get a Bryan Singer stuff a bunch of hot young people into black leather, but these things happen.

You give the naysayers a cookie so they won't look for your stash of 11,244 giant size packages of Nutter Butters.

Izaizaiza - 6/14/2024, 4:21 PM
@DocSpock - Agreed, fellow old man. The main things I care about are that they've captured the essence of the character (It feels like them, and has their defining traits) And that it's well written, so I give a shit about the character.... Now it's your checkers move, so stop getting distracted! 👴🏻

@Izaizaiza -

I agree with you completely. Wow! You're a genius. So few of us...
