Right from the start, Hugh Jackman's portrayal of James "Logan" Howlett, a.k.a. Wolverine, was clearly going to be different than the traditional comic book version. Perhaps it was because Jackman stands at 6 feet 3 inches, whereas Wolverine is a whole foot shorter than him at 5 feet 3 inches. Or maybe it was because Jackman is Australian, and Wolverine is Canada's most famous superhero. Despite Jackman's portrayal of Wolverine differing from the comic book look, many fans consider him to be the definitive incarnation of the character.
Since James Mangold's Logan appears to be taking inspiration from Mark Millar's Old Man Logan comic series, it will feature an older Wolverine with battle scars and a diminished healing factor. For the most part Jackman nails the look, down to the gray hair (and hairstyle), ripped body, and fatigued look. The trailers have even shown the scarring left behind by injuries and Logan's use of his claws, which are also prominent in the comic series. Disregarding Jackman's height, his depiction of the character is very much comic accurate.
Even though this particular story doesn't require it, Jackman has been playing Wolverine for almost two decades on the big screen and audiences still haven't seen him in his classic, yellow costume yet. And as far as Mangold is concerned it may never happen. "The flesh and blood character is very loyal to that iconoclastic rebel who doesn't seem to be the first to don spandex … Some fans may be frustrated, but we're trying to be true to his character."
