Re: the Wolverine trailer

^Maybe after the events of Origins, he went to live alone in the woods, and he grew shaggier simply because he wasn't maintaining his clean appearance anymore. He went "wild" and stopped cleaning up.

And he died his hair blond. And his eyes grew black. And he grew 5 feet taller. If you want to try and explain that away be my guest but I just wish they had been more consistent in that regard.

Re: the Wolverine trailer

one imagines that Wolverine and Sabretooth no longer remember each other because of some mind-wiping done by Weapon X.

i'm also assuming at this point, that Sabretooth is shorter and darker of hair because he's yet to be mutated by Weapon X and they'll do something that makes him taller, bigger and weirdly dyes his hair...

Re: the Wolverine trailer

Maybe they will explain why Sabertooth is less feral than he is in X-Men...trailers aren't meant to reveal the entire story.

It is the job of fanboys everywhere to be nitpicky and bitchy about every little detail. Don't rob them of that one small pleasure!

Re: the Wolverine trailer

Advocating basic logic and basic continuity is being fanboyish? The reason I raise this question is because if the filmmakers appear to be lazy in regards to minor - but obvious - things like this, then what else will they be lazy with? I agree it's too early to tell, but my doubts are raised.

Although according to Wikipedia I have nothing to fear about the Deadpool thing(which is the main reason I'll see this movie. Fuck Wolverine.), so my doubts are a little at ease.

In the original 90's X-Men cartoon there was an episode that is almost identical in premise to this movie -- Wolverine and Sabretooth go back to Weapon X, battle it out, and we get flashbacks to both of them prior Weapon X, where Sabretooth looked a lot more human and less feral. Interestingly enough Silver Fox was also featured, where she was murdered and then came back, somehow.

I have no problem suspending my belief that Sabretooth merely got more feral as time went along. This is, after all, suppose to take place twenty years before the original X-Men. While I like continuity as much as the next guy, this is a comic-book movie. We got people with claws coming out of their hands, becoming "diamond"-ized, jumping and flying around, crashing through walls. I think I can suspend my belief that Sabretooth doesn't look "exactly" like he did in the first movie.

^ Hey, don't knock the gritty realism of X-Men! For all you know, someday human mutation won't be about having extra fingers or defective DNA, but instead give you supermodel looks, a rock-hard body and the ability to shoot lasers out of your eye!

Re: the Wolverine trailer

I wonder how much they will take from the Origin comic book. Will they keep the names? The back story? Dog?
It looks like they kept his father's death and the bone claws.
