The Russo Brothers Wanted Wolverine in Infinity War

Posted on by

Wolverine is one of the most iconic characters in not only the X-Men franchise, but in all of Marvel. Therefore, it is only expected that people who are involved in the Marvel franchise is going to want to use him for their projects. The Russo brothers have recently stated that they had wanted Wolverine for Infinity War. One interesting thing was there was some point when Hugh Jackman has talked about playing Wolverine in projects after Logan. However, he has ultimately decided not to. For one thing, he knows he is aging and for this reason among other reasons, he has decided that he is ready to pass the torch.

Fans have speculated that Wolverine was going to make an appearance in either Avengers: Infinity War, or Avengers 4. There have been many speculations as to whether or not he is going to use his outfit that was seen in comics and other media, but only glimpse at on film in a deleted scene. Fox is still working out everything with Disney and everything is expected to be complete by 2019. This is when people can expect some other iconic characters in the MCU to pick up where some of the current set of characters are going to leave off.

Given that Wolverine has died in the most recent film, Logan, it is probably a good idea to let him rest and perhaps focus on some of the other characters in the X-Men franchise. In most of the X-Men movies, Wolverine was given most of the attention with all of the other characters besides Xavier taking a backseat. The First Class movies does give some attention to other characters. It is highly likely that all of the X-Men characters are going to be done justice in the MCU.

Kevin Feige: The Man Behind the Look of Wolverine

One thing that people are going to remember the most about the X-Men films is Wolverine. One of the reasons is that he is one of the characters that looked the most like their comic book counterparts. However, one thing about this is that Wolverine was not always going to look like that in the films. The producers were afraid of making the movie look silly (which is evident in the way the characters were all dressed in black like in The Matrix of the year prior). The one person that has stepped in and made sure that Wolverine resembles the comic book character is Kevin Feige, who is responsible for the MCU.

Back when the X-Men movies were made, people were very afraid of looking ridiculous. This does provide an explanation as to why Wolverine was never shown in his iconic yellow costume. However, Wolverine has looked pretty much like his comic counterpart. Throughout the movies, Wolverine’s hair style has evolved. For one thing, his hair seemed to get shorter, especially in the films that came after X-Men Origins Wolverine which shows a large haired Wolverine with a non apparent “point”. In The Wolverine, the film starts with Wolverine having very long hair which is cut short at the beginning of the second act to bring out the signature look with shorter hair.

By the time they got to Logan, the trademark hair is pretty much gone with only a slight hint of it. One thing that the recent comic book movies have shown is that it is possible to replicate the comic book look without moving into ridiculous territory. Even the DCEU has brought forward a Batman suit that is very similar to the comic book version of the suit compared to the black armor of the movies and made it look cool.
