Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

There seems to be a reluctance to do anything interesting with titles these days. Andrew Niccol's making a film that used to have the clever title I'm.Mortal, but that title has been replaced with the incredibly dull, generic title Now.

On the other hand, at least Disney came to their senses and decided to call the Tron sequel Tron Legacy instead of the nonsensical, unpronounceable Tr2n.

In defense of Aronofsky's film title, though, it's based on a comics miniseries that was simply called Wolverine. And it does seem to be trying to pretend that X-Men Origins: Wolverine never happened. If that were the case, then it would've probably been fine just to call this film Wolverine, but as it was, they had to make a small concession to the reality that the former film did, in fact, exist.
