The Hugh Jackman Wolverine costume for X-Men Apocalypse may have been leaked online and it is based on his classic yellow and masked costume.
The Movie News Hound has reported that a photo (seen above) of the alleged Hugh Jackman Wolverine Costume for X-Men Apocalypse has leaked online.
The leaked Hugh Jackman Wolverine costume looks exactly like the one shown on a deleted scene of “The Wolverine” movie and it gives reference to the classic yellow and masked costume of Wolverine in the comics and the animated series of the 90’s.
Comic Book Movie has picked up a tidbit from the latest episode of The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith where guest writer/producer Simon Kinberg has revealed that X-Men: Apocalypse will be set in the year 1983. Those of you keeping track will note that this is 10 years after the events of X-Men: Days of Future Past. This means that while the X-Men: First Class cast – like James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult – will be continuing their roles, they will also be playing characters 21 years older than when we first met them. It may finally be time for Magneto to start sprouting some grey hair and for Professor X to start losing his. Mystique and Beast presumably won’t be affected on the same level, but that’s only because their costumes require so much makeup anyway.
Being set in the early 1980s opens up a lot of options for X-Men: Apocalypse, but easily the most significant is what can be done with younger versions of classic characters. Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm and other notable mutants were all flocking to Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters around that time period, and presumably part of the plot of the new movie will have them enrolling and learning how to hone their powers.
