In a “tweet your questions in and they’ll be answered via video” session with Yahoo, X-Men: Apocalypse director, Bryan Singer talks about the reasoning for going back and doing the “Rogue Cut” of X-Men: Days of Future Past, adding Rogue to the climax of the film, then the question is asked, “will we ever see thee traditional coloured X-Men costumes in the film?”, which the director had this to say on the subject, which he’s usually avoided:
The X-Men are sort of a fighting team, so, it was always an attempt at being realistic to have them in fighting uniforms, flight suits, things like that. In X-Men: First Class, which I produced and wrote the story for, we harked back to the original colors of the original costumes from the 1963 comic, which were all the same, they were uniforms. They eventually evolved in the colors. But I will say, in X-Men: Apocalypse, there is a chance, without giving anything way, that you may get closer to seeing what I think, you are interested in seeing. I know it’s something that I have been interested in, I just always wanted to do it the right way.
As a kid, the X-Men were one of my favorite comics to read, it would be interesting to see Wolverine in his trademark yellow suit. I know he there was a scene that was cut out of one of the movies where he had the suit in a case… Make it happen Mr. Singer!
