Comic book fans have waited for decades to witness Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine don the classic costume onscreen after it was initially teased in The Wolverine (2013). Finally, the wait seemed over, with Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 3, as it was claimed that Jackman would wear his Wolverine mask in the film.
However, with a lack of official confirmation from legitimate sources, the rumor was shut down by fans. But now, Kevin Feige wearing the Deadpool 3 hat at the 51st Saturn Awards, which showed both Deadpool and Wolverine’s masks, seemingly confirmed that Hugh Jackman’s character will appear in its classic comic book mask.
Rumors Surrounding Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine Mask
Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine has always been the fan-favorite comic book mutant character from Marvel. Donning the classic yellow costume with his adamantium claws, in the comics, Jackman’s Wolverine is appreciated because of his incredible strength and fabulous personality. However, unfortunately, fans have always wanted to see Jackman in the classic Wolverine costume, as per comics.
Unfortunately, after the look was initially teased in the 2013 Marvel movie, The Wolverine, it was never spoken of, ever again. But with Ryan Reynolds‘ Deadpool 3 approaching, which is going to feature Jackman’s Wolverine, fans found a ray of hope to see the actor don his classic comic book costume. In the posters and teased images, Jackman was finally spotted in the yellow Wolverine costume.
But what was missing in his costume was his Wolverine mask. Despite wearing the yellow comic book costume, Hugh Jackman was spotted without the mask. This sparked concerns among fans about whether Deadpool 3 will feature the ultimate Wolverine mask or just the yellow costume. Although trusted insiders confirmed that the movie will feature Jackman in the whole Wolverine costume, fans had their doubts due to the lack of official confirmation.
Kevin Feige Debunked the Mystery With Deadpool 3 Hat
Eventually, it seems Kevin Feige indirectly confirmed the rumor surrounding Hugh Jackman’s comic book costume. Appearing at the 51st Saturn Awards, on Sunday, February 4, Feige was spotted wearing the viral Deadpool 3 hat. And in that hat, the logo featured half of Deadpool and the other half of Wolverine’s face, which was spotted donning the mask.
