the buzz and confidence behind mos says a lot though.

i think snyder found a good match for his abilities in superman. i expect mos to review very well.

the trailer for man of steel is yet to be beaten imo.

Why are you up bringing Bryan Singer? DOFP is not even competing with Man of Steel this summer. But since you asked that question, I'll be honest, other than Superman Returns, the only movies I've seen from him are the X-Men films. And compare to Zack Snyder, its already been proven that Bryan Singer could deliver a good X-Men movie. With Zack Snyder, its still uncertain if he can deliver a good Superman movie.

And as for the director of The Wolverine, James Mangold - he has a stronger resume/filmography than Zack Snyder. So I wouldn't be surprised if The Wolverine turned out to be a better film than Man of Steel.

It's ridiculous that everyone is criticizing this film before it's out. Of course it will get bad reviews with this attitude. It could be the best movie ever, and people would still hate it.

I remember some negativity toward First Class because of the awful marketing, but once that early spill of reviews from the first screening came out people were excited.

That's what will make or break this movie. The initial reactions. Because if those reactions are slightly negative, I'm not sure if people will be interested to see Origins 2: Tokyo Boogaloo.

I can't believe how terrible the poster with ninjas looks. It's like someone just discovered Photoshop and gave it a bash.

Speaking of Photoshop, why did they do away with Wolverine's nipples in the city poster? Are they too racy or something?

Looking at the screenshots (not definitive I know), the movie looks kinda clean and shiny to me. And a bit at odds with that early artwork of Wolverine crouching on the roof looking all dark and gritty.

The bright glossiness reminded me more of Avengers to be honest.

The ninjas poster was so amateurish it's painful to look at. The lack of nipples in the city poster must be do with conservative America (the Janet Jackson incident comes to mind!) but I'm not sure why the image is so apocalyptic. In what part of the story does the city fall apart?

And the screenshots remind me of Avengers more than anything. But they do seem a bit too glossy for what's supposed to be a film-noir production!

I think all the debris floating in the air isn't actually just some random stylistic choice but rather a hint at Silver Samurai's tachyon field at work.

To be fair, X-Men has always had "some" lame posters. lol


Most recently, big budget movie posters are made by "BLT COMMUNICATIONS"

If you have Firefox, try using the "Media Hint" add-on, and see if it works.

As someone said, this colour palette(as far as we can tell) is that of Avengers and even First Class.
Criticize if you will, but it's not like it isn't working in today's landscape.

That being said, I would have personally preferred if this had gone the route of Blade and even MoS, where in it isn't shot like a big colourful hero piece but perhaps an indie/earthy film. Wolverine could really thrive in that sort of setting.
...Zack Snyder.

Man I hate that.

That new MTV teaser footage was good. I mean, real good. There's texture to the images that I like. Hugh's body is even more amazing than I thought.

Could it be? Could we finally get a good, solo Wolverine film finally? Tomorrow will tell us even more.

Crossing toes, fingers, and everything else I got that this thing is badass. Wolverine deserves one badass film. Just one.

Given the classic image it's based on it's a shame they seem to have rushed it, as you'd think they'd have had plenty of time to refine the concept for a live action movie poster.
