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.
