Here's Why People Won't See Wolverine's Classic Yellow Costume In Logan

A few weeks ago Hugh Jackman tweeted out an image of the classic Wolverine superhero costume, leading to speculation that this could feature in Jackman's latest, and potentially final, X-Men outing Logan.

Logan, in its stripped back, low-key return to basics, is the flawless antithesis of the overstuffed and sluggish formula at the core of many modern superhero movies. He's of the opinion that heroes who wear branded costumes are narcissistic and want credit for what they did. And why? The only reason you do it is so you can have some sort of trademarked claim and get credit for what you did. It's The Wolverine!' At least the Wolverine, as I see him, that's a real struggle for me and always has been. As visual effects now make even the wildest of dreams a reality, the size and scale of superhero movies is exponentially growing.

Still, it won't affect the outcome of games much, either, as it's rare that pitchers throw wild pitches on intentional walks. Commissioner Rob Manfred claimed it was a way to speed up games, but I just think he's trying to fix what isn't broken.

For one thing, Mangold is actually underselling the costume in question: it's not actually canary yellow - it's canary yellow with navy blue accents and gloves, while the knee-high boots each have two tapered "ears" on either side of the knee.

In 2015, Steven Spielberg, in predicting mass fatigue from too much comic-book fare, said that superheroes will go "the way of the Western". However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world and the legacy he left behind are upended when a young mutant named Laura Kinney, perhaps best known as X-23, comes along while being pursued by dark forces. On the one hand, that's a shame - the X-Men comics have some genuinely fantastic costume designs in them - but, when it comes to Wolverine, it's one of the smartest decisions in the entire 17-year history of the franchise. They wouldn't edit in a flashback of those character together because that would undo the dramatic arc the filmmakers just created, so that means it would need to take place after Logan's death. For example, Fox did it with X-Men: Apocalypse past year, and Marvel Studios famously waited until after The Avengers had its press junket and world premiere before they shot the shawarma scene that was added to the end of the movie.
