This trailer was supposed to go live on-line (after being released with prints of sci-fi re-make The Day The Earth Stood Still) yesterday. However, I looked everywhere and couldn’t find it, until now. (Then I realised that due to the time difference between the U.S and Oz, I was too eager) So, here’s the latest trailer (not the one shown at Comic-Con this year) for X-Men Origins: Wolverine, opening May 1 next year. It has elements from the Origin comic series, plus guest stars such as fan faves Gambit, Deadpool, the Blob, White Queen and more. Sabretooth is in it too, of course, and it looks like Liev Schrieber was a good choice. So sit back and enjoy. Marvel really are making some fine films these days.
Cool, huh? And what a way to celebrate my 200th post! Woo hoo!
Well, this is exciting. The first (shaky) look at the Wolverine trailer, right here. If you can move past the bad English, the blog may very well be the first place to see this. The film, entitled X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a spin-off set in the X-Men movie universe and a prequel starring the hairy Canadian, played again by Hugh Jackman. It’s not released until May next year but the trailer may be enough until then. With a look at the Weapon X programme that gave him an adamantium skeleton, to his days in WW II and meetings with other Marvel characters such as Blob, Deadpool (if Ryan Reynolds can’t play The Flash at least he still gets to play one red-suited comic character), Gambit (for whom the greatest cheers were reserved for), Emma Frost and old pal Sabretooth, played by a surprisingly mean Liev Schrieber. I’m sure the film will end with someone asking him to meet “some guy named Xavier,” or perhaps it will even tie in to the upcoming Magneto spin-off. My greatest hope? That Captain America will appear in the WWII scenes. Go here for a full cast list.
