0:34 mark, when I first watched it I wondered if that was Deadpool, after seeing your comment I checked again and that is him. I'm curious how much of his character they'll show as that'd be a sweet spinoff to set up (and if they go that route I'd assume that'd be the end of the Reynolds as Flash rumors?).

It's looking pretty bad to me. You would think in a Wolverine movie they could do without the bad CGI. And I was hoping they'd keep it stripped down and bare, instead of going over the top and loose with the comic canon. Oh well.

so Liev Schreiber is supposed to be Sabertooth? i like him better as an actor to play the part, but the Sabertooth they had in the 1st XMen movie really looked the part.

this looks like standard comic book movie stuff. i'll pass and rent it or something. that new Hulk movie that came out this summer was supposed to be better than the 1st Hulk, but really - the good guys always win in these things so i'm not interested in paying $10+ a ticket to see a movie where i know what the ending is gonna be. i would've loved this movie to have come out 20 years ago when i was actually buying comics.

Comic-Book Wolverine > Movie Wolverine

I probably won't watch this unless people say it's amazing. I am biased however, because the X-men movies don't really do the comic-books justice.

I want to be excited about this movie, but the trailer didn't do it for me.

I am a big Wolverine fan. I have been since I was a kid. I think Hugh Jackman is great in the role. X-Men 2 was fantastic and when he went all beserker rage at the mansion was awesome.

That said, I don't think this movie looks all that good. I am not terribly hopeful.

I'm watching this one just for Liev Shrieber's take on Sabretooth.

I agree wholeheartedly. The early buzz is not positive. FWIW, movie bloggers are saying things like this:



This is a movie that has not had the best buzz. Early word came out that the script was terrible, and then we even started hearing credible word that people in the studio itself were really unhappy with how the film had come together. Not good news at all.

So i can’t tell you at this point if Wolverine will be a decent or absolute train wreck of a movie… but I can tell you with absolute certainty that the new Wolverine trailer kicks all kinds of serious ass. It was far more entertaining to watch that the entire screening of The Day The Earth Stood Still that’s for sure.

Liev Schreiber looks absolutely amazing as Victor Creed (Aka Sabertooth) as we all knew he would. I’m still not sure how they’re going to reconcile the fact that another totally different incarnation of Sabertooth is in the original X-Men movie though.

And yes, we do see Gambit in the trailer. A significant amount of Gambit too. As a matter of fact one of the opening lines in the trailer is Wolverine saying “I know who you are… GAMBIT”, proceeded by shots of Gambit throwing charged up cards and holding a battle staff.

All trailers are designed to make a movie look good. It’s not that hard even for the worst of movies (just look at the trailer for The Phantom Menace), so the quality of this trailer doesn’t say anything about the quality of the movie… but damn the trailer is sweet.

I think they are allowed a mulligan on that one.

Sabertooth/Creed is as much about attitude as he is appearances, which is why that wrestler was just so awful as Sabertooth in the first X-Man movie. It really wasn't his fault, he can't act for shit, so he couldn't do anything more than grunt. And it was doubly awful because he ended up looking pretty ridiculous.

I'm not sure where they're going with this script, but I definitely didn't expect, or want, to see Gambit, Deadpool and Emma Frost in a Wolverine Origins movie. I thought the whole point was to focus on Wolverine, seems like instead they tried to give the fanbase a squeegasm.

Agreed. I think I saw the kitchen sink in there.

If they focused on the Origin miniseries to the Weapon X storyline, I think it would've been successful.

the thing that's weird is this is Wolverine we're talking about - one of the top 5 most favorite and famous super hero in comics - you'd think there'd be enough content to fill a whole movie up just on Wolverine alone...no need for all this other filler. if this wasa movie on Storm or Nightcrawler - sure, throw in some cameos. not for Wolverine.

You missed little girl Storm as well.

Interesting to see the replies though. On a forum known for it's comic book geek factor, this is getting mass love.
