Just because you don't see it, doesn't mean it's unnatural. You just have to imagine some stuff yourself, not everything needs to be explained. I have no problem imagining Wolverine going from X3 ending state to the start of The Wolverine. There are not that many pieces one have to add. And hopefully the movie itself will add some of it's own. Maybe it's just me, but I don't see the problem here if you just use some imagination.
I somwhat agree with the cure angle being a bit of a retread, but I'm waiting to see how it's being presented and in what context. Personally I hope that the cure thing is more of a plot device than a huge part of the whole story arc.
