Logan: Hugh Jackman Poses with Classic Wolverine Mask


Hugh Jackman’s farewell as Wolverine in Logan has gone from a big risk to a massive success, dominating the box office at a rate rarely seen for R-rated films. 20th Century Fox’s big bet on Jackman and director James Mangold has certainly paid off in the early-going, as the film rode mostly positive reviews to a big opening weekend in theaters.

One of the biggest aspects of Logan that set it apart was its R rating and uncommonly graphic violence for a film based on a comic book character. The film’s dark, gritty aesthetic lent itself to the idea that Jackman’s final turn as Wolverine would be far removed from the instantly recognizable yellow mask that the character wore in the comics for decades. A new photo shows that Jackman is well aware of Wolverine’s roots.

Jackman posted a photo of himself to his Twitter account on Thursday, holding the classic Wolverine mask up to his face with the caption, “THE Mask.” Jackman never wears a mask or suits up like the classic Wolverine at any point in Logan. Funnily enough, Jackman erroneously mentions the Twitter account of a man named Logan Eldridge in the tweet - he’s really looking for @WolverineMovie.
