See The Classic-Look, Yellow Wolverine Costume Unused In The Final Cut Of His New Film – TOO LATE

I’m quite surprised it got this far, but a classic-look Wolverine costume was made for the recent movie and it just never made the cut.

This picture, as the watermark makes clear, comes from Movieweb. It’s a great score. They should be proud of it. The image was apparently “borrowed” from a closed site…

REMOVED BYE REQUEST

The design was apparently done by Adam Ross, a sculptor at Legacy Effects.

UPDATE: Ross e-mailed to say that Gil Brooks’ original report, as cited by me, was:

incorrect in its content as to the nature of this piece and what it was to be used for. Liberties were taken in interpretation and reposting of the original blurb. I have given no interviews regarding the image, and comments attributed to me are false and heavily retailored to appear as if I did speak to Mr. Brooks. 

Oops. Now we’ll return to remainder of the original story, which is based in good faith on the original, apparently faulty story.

He explains that the above picture isn’t really what it seems:

This is the costume that I modeled for The Wolverine. It was unused in the final cut of the film. Everything in the box is digitally modeled and 3d printed. There is no cloth or leather used in these parts, but rather texturing added in ZBrush

That’s right – it’s as solid and immovable as one of Jeff Koons’ helium balloon bunnies.

It’s not clear, to me at least, where that costume would have appeared in the film’s narrative, but seeing as they went straight to a solid sculpt, you can rest assured that Logan would never have worn it.

From what I’ve seen of Days of Future Past the costuming look is pretty much the same, oh-so-serious black and metal look of… oh, pretty much every superhero film ever. Maybe they’ll splash about more colour in the 70s sections, but – aside from Magneto’s helmet and cape, perhaps – I rather doubt we’ll get into primary colours.
