Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

I think Singer will direct "X-Men 4" once is contractual obligations are fulfilled with Warner Bros "Jack the Giant Killer". I think we could see "X-Men 4" by 2013/14. He is of course attached to the "Battlestar Galactica" remake and the "Excalibur" remake. There were of course reports that he attempted to get out of his Giant Killer contract so he could direct "X-Men: First Class". He was even rumored to direct "Wolverine 2" at one point. All of these reasons are why I think he could direct "X-Men 4".

After First Class (here's hoping trilogy) as much as I would love a continuation post X3, I think an Excalibur, X Factor or even X Force movie would be cool too.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

I know my hopes for this movie have gone up a lot over the recent weeks.
Arfonsky isn't my fav director probably cause I'm 50/50 on the stuff I've seen. Black Swan looks interesting and loved The Wrestler.

I love the title The Wolverine. Love its a non traditional sequel that works, especially as a comic film. As if a new creative team came on board at issue 14 and while not being a continuation of what came before it doesn't set out to contradict it either while moving forward.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

That's actually where I think the potential lies in superhero films, and why I'm not so upset about Spider-Man being rebooted. Why not treat these movies like their source material? Do a run with a certain creative team, and then new talent comes in and changes it up. New cast if they want, everything. Why not? I think that's exciting. I only expect at most a trilogy, I don't think we should be expecting people to be doing the same thing for 10 movies. That's ridiculous. Do three, then reboot, or continue in a different vein. I think that's cool.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

^ I think this is the way to go as well and one of the reasons why I'm looking forward to this and "Green Lantern" so much. They're both based on source material.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

Me three. I too think there is more leeway to reboot these properties so long they keep the quality up. Each raising the bar. Although I'm sure there will be a few clunkers on the way.

And judging from the green lantern trailer it feels like. DC's version of Favreau's Iron Man in terms of tone. Which I don't mind at all.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

I do not know what people hate so much about X-MEN ORIGINS WOLVERINE. It was a fun action movie, with a brilliant cast (especially Jackman and Schreiber), a good plot and it was more down to the Earth than the last X-Men films. I liked the gritty style of it, and all the action scenes were cool (especially the tower fight).

I never read the comics though, which could probably explain why I enjoyed all 4 X-films so far.

That being said I am looking forward to both FIRST CLASS and THE WOLVERINE. Aronofsky is a very talented director, who captures the essence of characters on screen. I trust that THE WOLVERINE will become the best and most demanding of the X-films.

Thank you for this input.

You are the otherside of the audience these films are also made for. The part of the audience that's never read an X-Men or Wolvie comic and is getting introducted to them via these films.

Yes! And I loved all four films, even the much hated third one. They had a constant continuing story and I did not 'feel' the much discussed drop in quality from the 2nd to the 3rd.
As for ORIGINS. It was a totally different film and reminded me of RAMBO - FIRST BLOOD in style and narration. It was not worse than the other three. So far no X-film has disappointed me and I am really looking forward to both prequels/spinoffs which are in production.

It was more product than art or entertainment, created merely to retain rights on something and shoehorned, rather indelicately, a bunch of unnecessary characters in it, again, merely to retain rights. It was sloppily produced, such as showing locations we had already seen, but for some reason they looked completely different now. And "gritty?" It was overly glossy in its presentation of its character (which is the opposite of how the character should be presented) and it's very quality was cheap. Cartoon claws, anyone? There were vast swaths of it that didn't even make sense on a character level. This guy comes into your kitchen with your radiator or sink or whatever cleanly cut in half and apologizes, and you just say put it over there and don't worry about it? It was cleanly cut in in half!?! That didn't strike anyone as curious?

Just all around a lazy, lazy film. That's why people don't like it. Oh, and all the fights, especially the tower fight, were shot like shit.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

In your opinion. It was not a masterpiece, but somewhere close to X2 for me (in my opinion). I liked Logan's and Creed's interaction. The two brothers made the film for me.
And I liked the plot-twists. I have never seen it coming that Kayla was actually alive and well, and that everything was orchestrated by Stryker.
I liked the reference to the (chronologically) later films, and after watching the four films in chronological order, I cannot find big issues with continuity (okay... okay... Victor Creed not remembering his brother in X1... but then again, who told you Creed and Sabertooth are the same person? Just like the XOW 'Emma Frost' is not Emma Frost after all! ).

Maybe I can enjoy the films, because I do not know the comics nor the animated shows. I find the style of the films (excluding timetravel, aliens and alternate dimensions) much more credible.

No X film has disappointed me so far... and that's four films in a row. Not even STAR TREK was able to hold that line.

I thought Wolverine was alright. If not for the horrible bastardization of Deadpool at the end I could call it good movie. Oh, and the hilariously poor CGI claws that never stayed on the knuckles where they were supposed to

Actually the claws are supposed to emerge between the knuckles, not on them, which is why there are only three of them.

Re: Aronofsky's Wolverine film title announced

I've said many times before that X-Men Origins: Wolverine is one of only a handful of other films that nearly made me leave the theater it was so bad. My major problem with the movie is that I think it suffered from so many cameos. I mean this was marketed and promoted as a solo Wolverine film but we got cameos from so many characters, including Charles Xavier himself!!! The story it's self was pretty average, the acting was bland, the special effects and action sequences were average even for an X-Men movie, the score was crap, I did enjoy the cinematography I'll give the movie props for that. It's pretty bad when your most entertaining and exciting sequence is Ryan Reynolds swinging around katana blades and making a few puns!!! The Team X raid is the best part of the film. I was majorly disappointed at the entire use of the Weapon X sequence after being teased brilliantly in "X2". Yeah this whole movie left a bad taste in my mouth. If there are fans who dug it...that's fantastic...but it was a pretty awful movie.

That all being said I'm really looking forward to "The Wolverine" and have high hopes for it. Dare I say that I might now be looking forward to this more than I am "X-Men: First Class"?
