The X-Men series within the Marvel cinematic universe has been on one hell of a ride since it made a stunning debut at the turn of the century. Actors, producers and directors have come and gone across the journey, yet one aspect that is true to the franchise has failed to materialize from the comic books. Something that leave a void for diehard fans - Wolverine's original classic yellow and brown costume.
Logan's March 2017 release will mark the ending to Hugh Jackman's portrayal of the superhero on the big screen, perhaps the ending to the character full stop. All we have to date for the costume within this framework now is a deleted scene from 2013's The Wolverine.

Could Be Suitable For A Flashback?
Coming to the end with his powers dwindling, and one of the last mutants left on the face of the earth, a theory has emerged to suggest that the classic yellow and brown could make a comeback. At least, in the event the R-rated feature utilizes the art of the flashback. Given that a number of the classic characters outside of Professor X/Charles Xavier presumably have been killed off, Wolverine might be able to don the kit to showcase how these heroes left us.
The Australian star himself, as well as long serving X-Men director James Mangold, understand the value of the costume. Let alone what the comic books mean to the big screen adaptation. Reports suggest that certain parts of the press have already been shown a 40-minute portion of the film. So perhaps they know something about the suit we don't.
Reynolds: Logan Can Win An Oscar
2009 appeared to be something of a breakthrough moment, seeing a host of big red carpet names talking in a frenzy about their love for The Dark Knight. Shortly before seeing it snubbed out of best picture contention at the Academy Awards. Now Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds and Jackman have gone public to big up the Marvel installment, arguing that these movies should be viewed on their merit.
“‘Logan looks like a movie that might break that glass ceiling,” Reynolds told the publication Variety. “I know first-hand that it’s amazing. I’ve seen some of it. It’s mind-blowing. It relies a lot on character.”
And while he might be biased, Jackman agrees.
“When I hosted the Oscars, (The Dark Knight) didn’t get nominated, and everyone was talking about it,” Jackman said. “It’s a stretch to say these are injustices in life — we are happy and making movies. But I love it when someone like Ryan gets recognized. These big-budget or comic book movies are not easy to pull off.”
