wish it was R rated, but i'd settle for a director's cut on the blu-ray.

hoping for great fight sequences; they can be just as, if not more, exciting than big action scenes with 'splosions and what not.

can't wait for the trailer; fox marketing is different i'll give them that.
To be honest, I'm not expecting it to be a huge success, much as it saddens me.

It certainly looks like it deserves to do better than Origins but I think I need the hype machine to kick in. I smell an underperformance.

Anything better than Origins will do me.
I think if this flops it will be the end of Hugh as Wolvie.

It is strange that we are hearing more about DOFP than Wolverine at the moment, in fact, A LOT more. I think they need to get the teaser out there asap at this point.

I wouldn't classify XFC as a sleeper hit, it's the second lowest grossing film of the series & second highest budget.


I don't know how The Wolverine is going to perform, even if it turns out great. X3 & XOW really did some damage to the X-brand. How much did XFC "right the ship"?...

I'd say it won't be much longer, couple of weeks maybe. They really should get on it, I appreciate Mangold wanting it to look as good as possible but it's less than 5 months out now.

This is a problem that extends to the comics as well. Most writers seem to willfully forget that Wolverine has an incredibly extensive martial arts background, but opts instead for him to slash mindlessly around with his claws for some reason.

In one comic (I think it was Wolverine: Manifest Destiny) some old martial arts master chastises Wolverine for not using his skills and just relying on his powers to get him through fights. I could see a scene like that working in the next film.

Yeah. In the comics I can forgive it a bit, since you can't really show fluid action, yet they're just as guilty of it.

In general, I was just never terribly impressed with any of the Wolverine action sequences in any of the X-films. They were okay, but they never reached the level of brutality I expected in a Wolverine fight. The mansion sequence was the best, and actually the first Wolverine/Sabretooth fight in Origins wasn't bad (though still not nearly at the level a Wolverine/Sabretooth fight should be at).

And again, I don't think we need more blood and gore, that can be implied. The Bourne films and the Craig Bond films have done a great job of making a fight seem incredibly brutal and intense without upping the gore. I want Wolverine's fights to be like that. When he's in control, he should be extremely brutal but efficient. When he loses it, it should be violent and chaotic.

I'm hoping this film will be the first to reach the kind of energy a Wolverine fight should have.

The root cause of this problem, the cause of Wolverine's laziness, and the laziness of the writers to write him that way, is his inflated healing powers. It has gotten to ridiculous levels. Didn't he recover from a drop of blood one time? A drop of f****** blood! Wolverine was at his best in his early days when it took him hours to heal from a bullet wound. Which meant that, while he likely wouldn't have died from a would that could be characterized as fatal to someone else, he wound still have been immobilized long enough for someone else to inflict a would that would actually be fatal to him. Which meant that he would still have to rely on his wits and skills to survive, despite a healing factor.

well in defense of that, his drop of blood spilled onto a "godlike" power source and that infinite power boosted his healing factor infinitely.

Fox would have to SERIOUSLY screw up the marketing to make this film flop. In terms of GA, everyone loves Wolverine, and Jackman as the character. A good trailer should set this film up for a solid performance.

I like wolverine when he can shrug off bullets
I think one of my favorite covers ever was him fighting a swarm of ninjas while riddled with bullet holes

That said, him healing from a skeleton, or a drop of blood, is ridiculous and makes him a little too tough to kill to really care about

I'm ok with the crazy healing,there are still some things that can kill him ( deadpool was going to drown him and it was said to kill him until daken did something to stop it) I like him full of holes from bullets or swords and still fighting.

Have to admit, as patient as I am for the trailer to finally get here, when I went to see Oz The Great and Powerful today, even I was looking around the theater to see if they'd at least gotten the poster or something up...

...wasn't up yet.

I'm starting to think the studio is following a similar low-key campaign as with First Class. Hopefully The Wolverine is a pleasant surprise.
