Yep. If Wolverine has his bone claws and Magneto doesn't have all that much metal around, Mags is in trouble.
If Wolvie has his metal though, he wouldn't be able to finish saying "bub" before he was down.
Purely based on skill though, Wolverine would waste Mags in hand to hand. Comic Wolvie fought in multiple wars and trained in Japan before he even got to Weapon X. Movie Wolvie has at least fought in multiple wars. Both incarnations have been killers long before Magneto was even born. So if you could somehow put them on equal footing and had them go against each other, solely based on skill, Wolverine would win.
On an unrelated note-does anybody hope we get to see a scene between McKellen and Fassbender?
