Last night I read the Claremont/Miller Wolverine
limited series from 82. That is the basis for The Wolverine,
correct? I enjoyed the book very much but I was left with a big question mark hanging. Isn't it kind of puny for a big budget movie? I mean it's a good story and a compelling character piece but nothing EPIC happens in the bloody thing. There are no major special effects sequences and the villains are all ninjas. As a story it's heads and tails over X-Men Origins: Wolverine
but also more of an art house thing. Does that mean they're going dumb it down, add huge VFX sequences to make it more of a blockbuster summer flick? It would be a shame. It's a really good book, just the way it is.
