He’s the best there is at what he does. And what he does is design MCU characters. A set of renderings of Wolverine drawn by
former Disney artist Jason Pastrana in 2017 is making the rounds on the internet in anticipation
of the X-Man’s eventual introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Several pieces were posted to Pastrana’s Instagram,
and while it’s far from the only Marvel concept art on his page, his reimagined movie Wolverine
may be the most intriguing. Disney didn’t officially acquire the film
and television assets of Fox Studios until earlier this year, so at the time this artwork
was commissioned, the notion of the X-Men entering the MCU was not much more than speculation. Even so, Pastrana went to the trouble of designing
at least nine different takes on Wolverine’s iconic mask, and you’ll notice that all of
them downplay the parts of the mask resembling the points of his hair, which sometimes seem
to stretch on into infinity in some of the character’s comic book depictions. It’s worth noting the two “stealth” variants
with the mouth and nose covered, a version with an X on the forehead, and the presence
of a great, big, stinky stogie in every version where the mouth is visible. Odds are Disney would have nixed that detail. Pastrana eventually settled on a version he
liked, something of a combination between the designs numbered 2 and 5, and designed
the entire costume, front and back. As iconic as Hugh Jackman’s long run as Wolverine
in the Fox-produced movies was, the character has never even come close to looking like
this in a movie. “You actually go outside in these things?” “Well, what would you prefer? Yellow spandex?” This version of Wolverine is a lot closer
to what we’re familiar with from the comics. He looks older, downright grizzled, as if
the MCU version of Wolverine would start out as aged and haggard as the one in Logan rather
than ending there. The rendering of the face even looks a little
bit like Jackman. It’s enough to make you wonder if, at some
point, Disney execs were kicking around the notion of porting over the Fox version of
the X-Men to the MCU before deciding to recast everyone except Deadpool. “Hey! It’s me! Don’t scratch! Just cleanin’ up the timelines!” Since Pastrana drew these concepts in 2017,
names that have been bandied about as possible successors to Jackman skew much younger than
the depictions here look: Rocketman’s Taron Egerton, Dacre Montgomery from Stranger Things,
and even Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame have all been rumored to be considered
for Wolverine. But Pastrana’s work is definitely worth consideration. It seems to be a clever way to fit Logan into
the MCU. Note the compact, streamlined look of the
helmet and the utilitarian feel of the uniform, which evokes an aesthetic similar to the duds
worn by agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or superheroes with a more militaristic bent. There’s even a sort of belt pouch, or, if
we’re being less charitable, a fanny pack, with a little “X” on it. It’s not hard to imagine another MCU character
making some kind of wisecrack about that. “What are you wearing?” “Oh, I always wear this. This is one of my favorites.” Pastrana apparently does this kind of stuff
all the time, and if you visit his Instagram, you will absolutely get lost in it. Other designs of his include an MCU version
of Doctor Doom, a rendering of Riri Williams, better known as Ironheart, and a version of
Spider-Man if his suit had been designed not by Tony Stark, but by Shuri. It’d definitely be cool if at least some elements
of Pastrana’s design make it to the big screen, because, again, it’s a version of Wolverine
who seems to fit the MCU aesthetic. We have the distinct feeling that he’d do
the team justice if he were to put his mind to designing their MCU look because, what
do you know, he already did it, and it’s a really smart take. That said, Pastrana doesn’t work for Disney
anymore, so it’s more than likely another concept artist will provide their own designs
for Marvel’s mutants. And we’ll have to wait several years to find
out if the characters’ eventual designs resemble Pastrana’s handiwork or go into an entirely
different direction. Marvel Studios has not announced the release
dates of any X-Men projects as of yet. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about the MCU

    Looks almost like the Black Panther suit. Maybe he could get a special costume from him but different colors to protect Wolverine more from damage like the Hulk. Would make sense and why that suit is specially made.

    2 and 8, the rest aren't Wolverine at all.
    1: Wolverine would never run around with an X on his head. That's some Bullseye BS.
    3+6: Wolverine doesn't use a chin guard.
    4+9: Too round. And what's with the random black patch design on the side of his head that ruins the iconic look?
    5+7: Wolverine would never have his mouth covered like Deadpool.

    2 is better than 8 because 8 deviates too much from that iconic Wolverine mask look.
    A combination of 1, 2 and 8 would be perfect…. minus the X on the forehead, and that seam going down the middle.

    The script should state the purpose of wearing a mask. Wolverine in Xmen debuts without a mask. Other superheroes wore mask to hide their identity. While most cases wolverine is already known by people & even by his enemies as Logan. What's the point of wearing a mask anyways?
