James Mangold Reveals That He Shot The Costume Scene In THE WOLVERINE For The Fans
While it didn't make the final cut of The Wolverine, director James Mangold has now revealed that the reason for creating a scene featuring the classic yellow and brown costume was due to the demand of fans. Hit the jump to read his comments on that and his plans for the sequel!
While it may only be a deleted scene on the Blu-ray, fans were still overjoyed to see a version of Wolverine's classic costume FINALLY make it into a live-action movie. While it was cut from The Wolverine due to X-Men: Days of Future Past, it still arguably leaves the door open for Logan to don the suit in a future movie, so it's good luck then that director James Mangold will be returning for the sequel! Talking to IGN, this is what he had to say about shooting the scene with the classic costume: "Honestly, first of all, I kept hearing and seeing from fans who were just begging to see this wardrobe, and I kept thinking as we were shooting, "How can I do this? How could I ever service this desire for people to see it?" And there was a point where I just asked the prop department to make me a gift box. So when I did that scene on the plane with Yukio, with RIla [Fukushima] and Hugh [Jackman], I had no costume. The studio hadn’t approved of making one or doing anything, but I thought, "Let’s just shoot a couple takes where he opens the box and reacts to it, and I can figure out what to put inside the box later." There was just a point later in the cutting room where I put it together, and I thought, "It’s kinda sweet."
While Magold doesn't reveal whether or not we'll see the suit in the sequel, he does say that he has some ideas how to make the movie different to what's come before. "I think the thing I’d love to make sure we do is that we find a way to not to turn it into a "Will the world survive?" movie -- I think that that worked for us here -- but also not to make the same picture again. I think the key thing for me, you heard me talking about how I construct scripts, is just figuring out the key relationships and just what it’s about, what theme the whole thing is going to be about. I’ve got a good angle on it, but I’m not ready to talk about it yet!" To hear even more from the director, be sure to click on the link below to read the interview in full.
