The Wolverine trailer has finally been released! And I have to say that I am impressed. After the mediocre X-Men Origins: Wolverine that completely butchered Deadpool, one of the best comic book questions, and Wolverine' origin story. Fortunately The Wolverine looks like a true Wolverine film, about Wolverine, not the X-Men. While I am skeptical, I am very optimistic considering how well done X-Men: First Class was and Fox really wants to make things right after Wolverine's first standalone film. There are two trailers, the domestic and international, both offer some great clips from the film and makes me excited to see it. Although some are excited to see Wolverine loose his Healing Factor, I am not so sure if this is the best storyline to do it. Because X-Men: First Class changed the comics so drastically, and it actually worked so well, I believe Fox, who owns the X-Men franchise, wants to try something different and new. What I find odd is that the character Viper (aka Madame Hydra), is in the film. She is one of the leaders of Hydra from the comics, yet Hydra is owned by Disney and was used in the Captain America film. Not exactly sure how Fox acquired the rights to the character, but it is confirmed that they cannot have a direct reference to Hydra in the movie. In the end, I am much more excited for The Wolverine than Man of Steel, and cannot wait until it is released!
For newcomers to the blog, I am a big X-Men fan and it was one of the comics that got he started into comic books. Below is a great rewind of the trailer comparing it to the comic book story. What are your thoughts on the new trailer? Please comment below.
