Hugh Jackman to Wear Wolverine’s Iconic Costume in ‘Deadpool 3’


Key Takeaways:

– Hugh Jackman is set to wear Wolverine’s iconic blue and yellow costume in Deadpool 3.
– In previous films, including Logan, Jackman’s gritty portrayal of the character never featured the costume.
– James Mangold, director of Logan, says that everything about Wolverine’s character prevents him from wearing a ‘self-promoting uniform’.
– Despite Mangold’s views, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Deadpool 3 director Shawn Levy support Jackman donning the costume.
– Deadpool & Wolverine is set to release on July 26, 2024.

There’s an electric wave of anticipation coursing through the Marvel fandom as it’s confirmed Hugh Jackman will indeed play Wolverine in the much-awaited Deadpool 3. However, the real buzz isn’t just about Jackman reprising his legendary Wolverine role, but also the exciting prospect of the 55-year-old actor finally donning the character’s iconic costume.

Hugh Jackman Embraces Iconic Wolverine Costume

Jackman’s Wolverine, best known for his hard-edged performance in films like Logan (2017), will appear in the classic blue and yellow X-Men costume in the upcoming Shawn Levy-directed Deadpool 3. This comes nearly 24 years after Jackman debuted as Wolverine in X-Men (2000). While the costume holds significant iconography in the Marvel Comics, Jackman has, surprisingly, never worn it throughout his entire on-screen stint as Wolverine.

Apart from a hint in the feel-good ending of Mangold’s The Wolverine and a deleted scene from 2013’s The Wolverine, there was no actual showcase of Jackman in the classic Wolverine costume. Certainly, fans have been agog with curiosity as to why the comic-accurate costume missed the cut in Mangold’s Logan and past X-Men movies.

Directorial Insights on the Missing Costume

Pointing out some reasoning to this, director Mangold laid it clear that the gritty persona of Logan, the real name of Wolverine, kept him from promoting a self-proclaimed “uniform,” thus explaining the costume’s absence till now. “He never put it on. We never even made a version of the outfit,” says Mangold. Despite this, the director mentioned hope that Jackman might wear the costume in future, a sentiment that seems to be finally coming true.

A Change in Tides: Mangold’s Version Verses the Comic-Real Version

Fast-forward to Deadpool & Wolverine (2024), and it’s a different scenario. Shawn Levy, the director of Deadpool 3, and Kevin Feige, Marvel Studio’s president, seem inclined to bring back the comic-accurate blue and yellow Wolverine costume. In an interview with Jake’s Takes, Levy indicated Jackman’s excitement at the idea of wearing the iconic costume. According to him, Feige’s first response when informed of Jackman’s willingness to reprise his role was, “Okay, but let’s go with the blue and yellow.”

What this Means for the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Visibly ecstatic, Jackman responded, “F*ck yeah!” to the idea, signaling possible future appearances in Marvel films, wearing his iconic new costume. With the inclusion of other high-profile superheroes such as Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Elektra (Jennifer Garner), there’s no doubt that Deadpool 3 holds great potential to be one of the stand-out movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In a world where fans pant for accuracy and love for comic book content, Jackman’s Wolverine in the true-to-comic costume in Deadpool 3 seems the game-changing twist audiences have been eagerly waiting for. Mark your calendars for what promises to be an epic Marvel installment, with Deadpool & Wolverine slated for release on July 26, 2024.
