Re: THE WOLVERINE - Reviews and Discussion Thread

Well saw it yesterday and it was a 7 out of 10 for me.

As for the end was somewhat suprised to see Magneto, less surprised by Prof X. After all what is a Smurai without a master and a purpose. And in some respects the master role would fit Prof. X as he gave Logan a purpose.

Re: THE WOLVERINE - Reviews and Discussion Thread

The Wolverine has crossed the $300m Worldwide figure with this weekends US domestic totals. Should go up again with Int'l numbers roll in mid week.

*INSERT GRAIN OF SALT HERE*

Information or Entertainment...source Comic Book News via National Enquirer.
Now, a report from National Enquirer claims that Jackman has been offered a colossal $100M deal to reprise the Wolverine role for four more movies. However, there's a good possibility that he will turn it down, as he is unsure about signing long-term deals. A "close pal" insider tells the site, "Hugh has a big decision to make. It’s not every day an actor gets offered this kind of paycheck, but Hugh vowed never to lock himself into any multipicture deals after ‘X-Men.’ He hasn’t given any kind of answer yet, so at least he’s considering it."
For the sake of it being 1/2 way legit what would 4 more films look like?

4 Picture Deal for more Jackman as Wolverine:
1- third solo Wolverine, third appearance in FC prequel trilogy, X-Men 4, get X-Force off the ground.
2-third Wolverine, 3 X-Force films
3-third Wolverine, X-Men 4-6?

Re: THE WOLVERINE - Reviews and Discussion Thread

Of maybe more concern on what kind of X/Wolverine there may be is health. Can Jackman's body take the kind of punishment body builders do in order to keep The Wolverine's appearance since he ages very slowly

Hugh Jackman offered $100 million to play Wolverine 4 more times?

I say good for Hugh Jackman if he decides to do it. I don't have a problem with any actor reprising a role as long as he is doing a great job. I feel the same way about RDJ reprising his role for Avengers 2 and 3, though Stark has his Iron Man suits so it won't be as physically demanding for RDJ.

Jackman loves the role the way Depp loves Jack Sparrow.... I cant see him turning it down, tho he may take it one at a time.

I think that's probably the big reason why he might say no...unless he already has enough money not to care about the cash.

I could see a decent solution being time-travel, though. We could have an old Wolverine from the future. That won't completely take care of the need for physical fitness, but it could explain away a bit of the aging.

I just saw this, enjoyed it very much. Fantastic cast, some real stand outs. Loved the setting and the slower pace of much of it, great build up.

Backing the convo up a bit. I got the trade of "Old Man Logan" and gave it a read. That... that was interesting.

I would like them do the "Old Man Logan" storyline as a movie one day.
I'd heard of the story before, but never a detailed synopsis. I read the first couple paragraphs there, and that sounds insane. Not sure if if I would enjoy based solely of the Wikipedia page, but it definitely sounds crazy.
Yeah. "Insane" is certainly the word.

"Logan needs money to pay rent to the landlords of this territory: the hillbilly grandchildren of the Hulk, who are products of years of incestuous procreation originating with Banner and his first cousin She-Hulk."

OR

"...a Venom symbiote-infused dinosaur..."

OR





Apart from the insanity of the storyline and the assorted licensing issues, I don't think you could make a movie about that without completely breaking the movie continuity of the X-Men universe.

Jean being in there was just pure fan service rather than anything to do with the film. Though I suppose it's interesting he didn't think Scott would be in "Heaven" with her...
Because Scott Summers is still alive somewhere!!!!!!

But, on the other hand, all the stunts and fights were well done, there's a nice Bond joke, the performances were solid (props to the lady playing Viper for doing a lot with an anaemically written part) and it's probably the most lush looking of all the X-Films. It's amazing how much more expensive something can look just by setting it in a country the series doesn't normally visit.
Agreed. Japan looked gorgeous!

Oh, and though it didn't hit me as a more casual fan until it was pointed out, isn't Logan supposed to be an amnesiac with no idea of his past? So he shouldn't have a clue what he was up to in World War II?
Doh! I can't believe I didn't think of that on my own!

Didn't Captain Picard help him remember his past?
He couldn't get everything, just bits. The most he could do was lead Logan to Alkali lake leading to the events of X2 where Logan didn't seem to have much more than a faint recollection of Stryker or the room where the adamantium was pumped into his flesh and somehow formed a skeletal structure and sharp knife-like claws.
That's what he helped dredge up the first time. Who knows how much further he dug between X2 and X3?
Although, it was also implied during one of the scenes between Xavier & Magneto in X2 that Xavier knew significantly more about Logan's past than he was letting on and was deliberately hiding it from Logan because he's a manipulative bastard that way.

^Or maybe Xavier doesn't tell him because it would be a violation of the Prime Directive. And Wolverine doesn't ask, because that would just result in a speech....

The story of Old Man Logan kinda reminds me of this:

Re: THE WOLVERINE - Reviews and Discussion Thread

Over the weekend the domestic update takes The Wolverine to $125m and $350m worldwide.
It'll finish domestically around $135m most likely. Labor Day weekend being it's last big hurrah before going to the discount $1 theaters. I'm not sure if it's opened in all overseas markets or not or how much longer it may play globally. Be nice to see a $400m worldwide figure though.
