Default SPOILER ALERT: Anyone bothered by....

Wolverine loosing his adamantium claws? I know he grows back his natural claws... I was kinda bummed about it.... At first I felt, well he only lost one set.... but then he lost both.

I don't mind, because they clearly intend to do something with the whole idea in X-DoFP. Plus, it served TW itself, as part of the deconstruction process of the character.

Stripped him of his immortality AND his adamantium. Excellent stuff.

Pretty much this. The time travel elemant will retcon pretty much the whole X universe. Cyclops will be back, Jean will be alive and Wolverine will have his claws. Failing that, like someone already said, Magneto or some kind of surgical procedure will give Wolive his adamantium.

But tbh I can live with an adamantium free Wolive for the short term. After he lost his adamantium in the books, I remember reading them and enjoying the slightly more vulnerable Wolverine.

I cringed more at that whole 'drilling into his bones' thing that was going on even more than Logan's earlier do-it-yourself heart surgery scene (although that was no picnic either).

I was not expecting either of those things to happen, but I'm guessing wherever it goes from here gets sorted out in DOFP.

It's interesting that there are at least two years where he just has the bone claws, though...

I was hoping he had the adamantium back in the mid credit scene. I'm bothered by it but I'm sure it will get sorted out later. ....hopefully.

Speaking of which, did he just lose the adamantium on his bone claws or his whole body? Because if all the metal is gone from his body, then Magneto shouldn't have any control over Logan like in the mid credits scene.

he could still use the iron in the blood, according to comics any way, but it was just the claws not all the metal.

Just the claws.

I really don't have a problem with what happens in the movie as far as the claws go.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
I actually had more of a problem with him not having his healing factor for most of the movie.

In the comics I never liked that they removed the adamantium from his bones but I did think him having bones claws the whole time and not knowing it was awesome.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
What do you guys think about them not having Wolverine have a reaction to having bone claws?

I didn't even think about it while watching the movie so I don't think it was needed.

By the way when is Kayla mentioned in the movie? I had seen it mentioned that she's referenced and was waiting for it but still missed it.

This is actually one of of my favorite things with the movie. It really made Wolverine really vulnerable.

Don't see a reason why he would. He remembers his time in WW2, he's dreaming about it during the movie and remembering it while awake so they aren't something he wasn't aware of in the movie-verse.

Speaking of the bone claws, I loved that shot of Wolverine holding himself up in the well just by the bone claws in the opening scenes.

What I love about the whole bone claws situation is that it plays thematically into the film big time. But, if you discount Origins Wolverine and just use the flashbacks from X-Men and X2 as the official backstory of Logan, seeing the bone claws for the first time in this film is really interesting. It doesn't feel out of place.

I know it technically ties into Origins Wolverine but because that's the only thing they reference from that movie, I think it plays as a nice revelation for people who haven't seen that film or who just discount it....like me.

It isn't the only reference from that movie. Not at all.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
The WWII scene is a reference to X-Men Origins: Wolverine establishing him as a member of all the various wars.

There is a reference to Kayla in the movie. In fact her name is specifically stated.

And of course the bone claws are taken directly from Origins.

1979.

Three Mile Island, which is when the climax of X-Men Origins: Wolverine takes place, was 1979.

Theyre taken from the comics, Origins didnt invent them.

Yes, but they have no reference in the movie universe until X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

That movie established, in the movie universe, that his claws are originally made of bone. Thus, their usage in this movie was capitalizing on the fact that X-Men Origins: Wolverine already established bone claws into the movie universe and that the time period of WWII was before he got the adamantium skeleton and claws.

As soon as he said, "You're not going to want to watch this!", my sister said she assumed he was talking to her and hid her eyes for the rest of that scene.

I think it's pretty cool that he has bone claws again. If he has to go back to the early 70s in DOFP, isn't it possible that we'll see them again anyway, presuming that it's before the Weapon X surgery?

Yup. Weapon X incident was in the 80s, so he'll probably have bone claws.

If you go by the timeline set in X-Men, he shouldn't get the adamantium claws until sometime in the 80's, so yeah, it doesn't screw with anything.

If I remember correctly, in X-Men, Xavier states that it's been fifteen years since Logan lost his memory. Well, depending on what year you think the events of X-Men started, he gets his claws sometime in the 80's....late 80's maybe.

Still, it all works.

He needs the metal back to fight sentinels. I have no idea how to do it though.

Yea I dont get why they went that route to be honest. Now he has a metal skeleton but his claws are bone. I hope Singer finds a way to fix it. Maybe they can just pump the liquid adamantium back on to his claws since he wouldnt need it anywhere else. He just isnt the same character without the adamantium.

If this movie showed one thing about Logan, it was that he IS the same character without the adamantium claws.
