Re: The Cure from X Men The Last Stand: mentioned in Wolverine...
My thing is, the cure would have been big news around the time that The Wolverine takes placing seeing as how it takes place a mere year after X-Men 3. The fact that nobody so much as mentions it whether it worked on some, or failed across the board, is a missed opportunity in my opinion.
The Post credit is scene is really not part of The Wolverine, and takes place 3 years after X3, so by then, the fate of the cure would have been public knowledge to everyone including Wolverine, hence him not being surprised to see Magneto with his powers back.
Every morning a Gazelle wakes up, it knows it must run faster than the fastest Lion or it will be killed.
Every morning a Lion wakes up, it knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle, or it will starve to death.
It doesn't matter whether you're a LION or a GAZELLE when the sun comes up, you better be RUNNING!
