While Hugh Jackman doesn’t need a suit to make himself look like the unstoppable badass Wolverine, with the classic yellow and black color scheme from the original X-Men making an appearance in X-Men: Days of Future Past, it makes sense that even Wolverine would perhaps get to try on his iconic Wolverine yellow mask and gloves. There was a video online of said deleted scene, but it’s been scoured, so the best you get is the above screen capture and a promise that it doesn’t look nearly as goofy as you might think it would.
The Wolverine hits theaters July 26, a movie that was simultaneously inevitable yet almost never was. And like its checkered production history, popular opinion of the movie has been equally contradictory. There are those, including some preliminary critics, that have hailed The Wolverine as the Wolverine movie we’ve been waiting for. Others predict yet another fake gem for the tarnished crown of the X-Men franchise. So does The Wolverine have anything going for it, or should it just do the honorable thing and kill itself?
