X-Men Origins: Wolverine – Comic Con Footage

leave a comment »

The new Wolverine origin film is due to be released in cinemas on 1 May 2008. Below is a link to a post on FLYLYF.com with footage from the film that was shown at Comic Con. Looks quite promising. I have my reservations about Hugh Jackman continuing on as Wolverine after the X-Men films. In the first film I thought he captured Wolverine pretty well but in the following two the character headed in too much of a “wussy” direction for my taste. The comic book character of Logan/Wolverine is much more of a “lone wolf” type, with a lot of aggression and a whole heap of natural coolness. In the third X-Men outing, his whole story line just got too soppy. However, with the “Weapon X” story line in this origin film it looks like we might get a Wolverine much closer to who he is in the comics. Also Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth seems like an odd choice, firstly he is just not physically big enough, BUT there is one moment in the Comic Con footage when he and Wolverine look to be in some sort of mexican showdown, in which we see a bit of the savagery befitting the Sabretooth character. Anyway it IS a film I am looking forward to no matter my reservations. Plus Gavin Wood is quite a promising director.
