Re: the Wolverine trailer

I enjoyed the trailer a lot. It was interesting and it got me excited for the movie.

And since when does Wolverine shrug off bullets and go through walls without some degree of massive trauma, in spite of his healing factor? Invulnerable and indestructible are two different hings altogether. But hey, I'm over 30 and know there was a such thing as the X-Men before Giant Sized X-men #1, so this flcik is obviously not for me.
To be entirely fair, this movie isn't aimed at people who have been reading Wolverine stories since his introduction. Outside of inclusions like Deadpool (who's a B-level character at best, really) and Gambit (ugh), this movie isn't for longtime comic fans so much as it is for people who have seen the last three X-Men movies and seen Wolverine plug his claws through his own chest, nearly die from a "mutant power transfer machine," raise seventeen flavors of hell in X2 and stand face-to-face with a rapidly downward-spiraling Queen Bitch of the Universe in The Last Stand.

I don't think bursting through walls really qualifies as "trouble," anymore.

Re: the Wolverine trailer

I'm having serious doubts about this movie. Why the Hell does Sabertooth look nothing like he did in X-Men 1 and wouldn't he remember Wolverine? Creed was pretty damn pathetic in the first movie now suddenly he's a master villain? Or are we just supposed to ignore all that?

I've had my fill of Logan in the first 3 Wolverine movies(otherwise known as The X-Men Trilogy). The character is played out at this point. Don't get me wrong, I like Jackman's take on him, as he's way more of a convincing character then that walking self-parody comics version. And I was NEVER a fan of revealing Wolverine's true origin in the comics as it totally killed the High Plains Drifter/Man with No Name thing he had going, which is what made the character cool in the first place. I'm going to see this movie for Gambit(who should have been in the first three films) and Deadpool( who better have his god damn Ninja outfit on at some point or I'll walk out). Hopefully Tits McGee(Emma Frost) is just a minor cameo and isn't given a chance to suck the fun and life out of this movie like she does every comic book she's in.

Ok, bitchfest done.

Re: the Wolverine trailer

Looks really good. Looks like they're sticking to his origin pretty well although the trailer suggests he agreed to the whole Weapon X thing. I think this Creed will be a lot better than the original X-Men one, who was all brawn and no brains and Gambit looks pretty cool.

Re: the Wolverine trailer

Seriously, can someone tell me how they think this is a riff on The Dark Knight? I don't see it at all.

BTW, thanks for the direct links!

[We saw Wolverine] raise seventeen flavors of hell in X2.
Actually, it was 32 flavors. He started out by raising 31 flavors of hell. But when Baskin Robbins sued him for trademark infringement, he went all berzerk on them and realized a new, 32nd flavor of hell that had been lost since the Middle Ages!

Well, obviously, it's a prequel.
Hold on, you're probably alluding to something from the comics - which evidently, I haven't read.
I guess it's a prequel for non-superhero comics readers like me.

No I mean wouldn't Sabertooth remember Wolverine from this movie in X-Men.

Well it looks like it'll be a good popcorn flick. I'll check it out (though probably NOT opening weekend).

Probably the scene with little logan crying over the corpses of his parents, which looks a lot like one of the iconic images of the Batman series.

I would have to rewatch the movie to be sure, but I don't seem to recall that there was an indication in either direction. Though, the fact that Sabertooth kept Logan's dogtags may indicate familiarity.

Fair enough, but they could at least explain why he looks so radically different.
