X-Men Origins: Wolverine hit the top spot at the US Box Office over the weekend, grossing $87 million to make it this year's biggest movie debut so far. So let's tally this whole movie thing up a bit: X-Men in 2000, X2: X-Men United in 2003, X-Men: The Last Stand in 2006 and now, X-Men Origins: Wolverine = millions upon millions of dollars and we have yet to see Logan (aka Wolverine) wearing his classic mask.
What is up with that?
Can you imagine for one minute, seeing any Batman film without Bruce Wayne having to put the cowl on....at least once? Um, hell no!
Once. Not even once, has Hugh Jackman checked his ego (or even more likely, "Hollywood-leading-man" attitude) at the door and put the mask on. Yeah, I can just see all of you poozers already gearing up to trash me for pointing this little fact out, but come on, don't any of you want to see the Jackman in the blue & yellow costume, with the mask...at least once.
Speak up people, send those emails and let's see Wolverine looking like the superhero mutant really ought to look onscreen next time. (I mean they've adequately gotten the non-masked look down pat already, but now it's just getting boring).
