I noticed that, too. Sure was a slow-moving heat/fire blast, too, considering how close they were to the detonation. Oh well...

A version of Logan's comic-book costume was designed for The Wolverine, but ultimately went unused.

Probably a good idea. There's just no way Wolverine's costume could translate to real life and look good.

It doesn't look good. His brown costume would look more realistic.

I think at this point, it is too late for Wolverine to suddenly put on his yellow costume. Singer's cheesy black leather uniforms are what people think of when they think of the X-men in the movies nowadays. Maybe they can do the colorful costumes after the reboot?

An eternal soldier going into battle wearing bright yellow is the very definition of cheese. it was the major fail of the movie when the mutant green Viper came out and broke the X Universe conventions.

I agree that the brown costume was far superior.

That's odd. It was working earlier today.

Re: THE WOLVERINE - Reviews and Discussion Thread

Well, the original article I posted to is gone, and another article removed the image by request.

However, I still was able to find it here. Hurry and click before it gets removed from here too!

Seems kind of pointless to have it removed at this point as it's already gone viral. I saved it my computer just because FOX doesn't seem to want me to have it.

There were rumors when Aronofsky was slated to direct that Logan was going to wear his original outfit (not sure if it was the brown or yellow one) during the film. Apparently it was going to be "ceremonial armor" given to him by Yukio or someone along those lines.

^That would've worked within the context of the story and been a nice wink to fans. I'm kinda sorry they didn't find a way to work it in somehow.

The Wolverine did cross the $130m domestic mark this weekend and has $366m Worldwide.
Wonder if it can make it to $375m WW before it's run is over.

At first I didn't think that costume would have worked on screen, but in that context I could maybe see them being able to to pull it off.

The Extended Cut will only be available with the 3D release.

However, if I'm reading the product details right, while the theatrical release is on a 3D disk, the extended cut will be on a separate, standard Blu-Ray. I hope so. I want to see the extended cut, but have zero interest in 3D.
