Hugh Jackman has been caught, in this photo displaying the classic Wolverine mask. The mask is a true testament to the OG comic book animated TV shows of X-Men. After the smash hit of “Logan” a lot of people are left wondering who will take Hugh Jackman’s place as the Weapon X.
“We might never see Wolverine in his classic comic-book costumes on the big screen, but the director of his latest adventure has a good reason for it.” – James Mongold
The director James Mangold decided not to put the mask on Hugh Jackman.
Below is his reason
“I’ve talked with Hugh and he said he’d like to continue and I would love to do this again, but we’re just refining that story and working on making a script,” James Mangold tells The Wall Street Journal. “All other decisions flow from there.”
I believe that the decision was important, on the other hand. We could see a number of different actors that will represent this mantle very well, in this case it will be down to casting.
Hugh Jackman himself could be involved with deciding who will be the next mutant but for now we have to wait and see for any updates and ask if the yellow and black costume is really necessary.
The image below, looks like an established costume, the gloves and mask look like they are made of a strong type of leather, spandex or kevlar. The yellow and black is an interesting contrast of the design.
The inverted jet like horns on the left and right side on the dome-shaped forehead part of the mask is definitely iconic and off course the six metal parts where his claws come out of are nostalgic.
The body suit is yet to be observed entirety, but one can only assume it will be complete, if we do get a fully costumed actor playing Wolverine, he better be ready.
Donnie Yen will be starring as the lead role in the upcoming Sleeping Dogs live action adaption film. of Square Enix’s Sleeping Dogs (My first Square Enix title I played on PlayStation 3 last year) but the role is still unknown apparently he could be playing a unnamed undercover cop. I mostly know of Donnie Yen’s work from Ipman 1,2 and 3 that franchise was badass as an actor and martial artist it takes a lot of commitment, strength and honour to prepare for this intensive role.
According to this gamespot article the movie is produced by Original Film and DJ2 Entertainment with the producer of the fast and furious series. Neal Moritz , Dan Jevons, Dmitri Johnson.The synopsis for this film is stated as: “undercover police officer (Yen) on a mission to take down one of the most powerful and dangerous criminal organisation in the world: the notorious Triads.”
We still don’t know when this movie will be out and what period it links with the actual game (Sleeping Dogs) but I am waiting to discover who will be the main character Wei Shen.I remember Sleeping Dogs it was originally on PlayStation 3, PC and XBOX 360 lit released in 2014 it was an exciting open-world action adventure game produced by Jeff O’Connel and Feargus Carroll.
