What's up with Scott Summers in relation to Wolverine's origins?

And will he have more screen time in this than the last three movies combined?

He's probably not related to Wolverine specifically. That looks like Sabretooth chasing after him in those hallways (a school, maybe?), maybe he's been hired to hunt down mutants for Weapon X and Scott just happened to be one of them. I dunno.

I just wish they'd drop that stupid prefix.

Re: new Wolverine trailer

Okay, how did the symmetrical scar guy who is supposed to be Deadpool absorb Scott's power and get eye-beams? Are they modifying their DNA to give them the powers of the captured Mutants or something?

And I guess regular old aviator sunglasses are good enough to stop Scott's eye-beams from shining through now? Unless he's constantly just keeping his eyes shut behind them, but then that would make so deftly running down the twisting hallways of the school kind of difficult. He's obviously supposed to be pre-Xavier school here, and the lenses were black, not red...

Apparently it's Deadpool as Weapon XI

Oh, thanks. I thought Weapon XI was going to be played by a martial artist named Scott Adkins? I guess they could just have him filling in for Ryan Reynolds to do the martial arts scenes, since his face is all jacked up anyway.

Scott Adkins plays Weapon XI and stunt-doubles Ryan Reynolds.

Re: new Wolverine trailer

This movie looks awful. I'm sorry but it does. And that's discounting all the huge gaps in movie continuity. Bad enough they had to butcher Deadpool here, but to drag poor Cyclops back for one more round of Wolverine making him his bitch is too much. The character must have just really rubbed someone at Fox the wrong way when they were kids.

New "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" trailer online

I'd imagine this is slated to appear with Watchmen starting tomorrow (or tonight, if you're going to the midnight showing).

http://www.superherohype.com/news/x-mennews.php?id=8141



I suppose that's not much of a spoiler if you watch the trailer, but alas, always good to be prepared.

Hurm.

I grow less and less sure of what to make of this movie.

So...what IS this movie about, anyway? It seemed clearer in the last trailer.

The furthering of the myth that Wolverine is the only important member of the X-Men.

I bet Dougray Scott is kicking himself right now...

I've never read an X-Men comic, so I have no investment either way...but...at least they're being honest with themselves this time and calling it "Wolverine" and not "X-Men 0" or something stupid like that.
