Wolverine Shots

Oh boy. We all knew it was coming, but here are the latest screens from the upcoming X-Men Origins: Wolverine or whatever the title is. Fox has a way of encumbering their movie headings. But that is the least of my worries. Granted, the first shot in the tank looks pretty cool and entirely reminiscent of the flashback scenes of the previous X-Men films (which from a continuity angle I appreciate).




But that is the least of my worries. Granted, the first shot in the tank looks pretty cool and entirely reminiscent of the flashback scenes of the previous X-Men films (which from a continuity angle I appreciate). The second with Wolverine and Sabertooth storming Normandy Beach also is rather cool, though I guess they’ve entirely given up on the Canadian aspect and kept Wolvie in the realm of the US Military. After all, the project known as Weapon X and Willian Stryker were both established as American in X2. Even the third shot, with both healing factor mutants before a firing squad looks good (and funny as hell I might add, they better throw some laughs in that scene).

However, shot number four, Wolverine vs. Liv Shrieber, I mean Sabertooth, looks kind of terrible. I don’t see an ounce of Sabertooth there. I hope they didn’t think the slightly blond facial hair they glued on was going to be reminiscent enough… Perhaps this is all before the Weapon X enhancements, but even still… Sabertooth… really… I’m just not seeing it. I hope he plays it mean, at least.

As far as the fifth shot goes, my favorite of the bunch, Jackman looks jacked, the claws look good, the expression and cinematic angle all look good. This shot embodies my hope for the movie. I just hope it isn’t getting my hopes up for nothing. I mean, after all they have Deadpool in this movie without the red mask or the scarring, played by a guy who got plastic surgery on his abs to make them a better six pack… *sigh*
