Devin’s the go-to guy for Wolverine casting developments, so I’ll stick to writing what I know: this is a still from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. That’s Wolverine. He’s got claws that come out of his knuckles. They go “snikt”. And they make awful stab.
I don’t know why Fox chose a random Thursday in February ’08 to pimp a film that won’t hit theaters until May 1, 2009. Is there a Wolverine teaser attached to Jumper? Those of you who pay to see that film tomorrow – which seems to have split the CHUD brethren – will have to let me know. I’ll be watching Forgetting Sarah Marshall instead!
I make light of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but I’m a huge fan of Gavin Hood and David Benioff; I really hope they make something worthwhile out of this half-hearted attempt to expand the X-Men brand. We’ll know they’ve succeeded when Fox greenlights X-Men Ephemera: Magik.
