I remember reading that script awhile back, and hating it. A bad Batman script doesn't mean we'll get a bad Wolverine one....

I don't see Wolverine or the mythology being disrespected in those scene discriptions.

That's fair enough. I think it's in his nature to do those things under those circumstances. Everything in those discriptions read "Wolverine" to me.

And that's not a matter of not understanding the character, it's a matter of just not liking how it was going to be told.
I understand this and agree to some extent. Everyone's entitled to their opinion. And my comment about "not having imagination" wasn't aimed at anyone in particular on this thread, it's more of an overall frustration I've had with comic fans for awhile now. More often than not they are too literal-minded when it comes to comic adaptations. Maybe I'm too open-minded in this respect. I had no problems whatsoever with Peter and MJ having sex on top of the Brooklyn Bridge in Cameron's script. It seemed well within the scope of possibility to me that they would have sex (and in places no one else could). I have similar feelings to the real world dimensions of Aronofsky's treatment.

If you don't explore these characters on film beyond the panels from which they originate, then it's a disservice to the genre imo.
