It didn't bother insomuch that the movie had lost me by that point. But I'd bet plenty money that Magneto will do it because they'll need all the help they can get.

I was rather surprised and shocked that they went that route with the claws...

Nope. Loved it. To me it was the redeeming part of that final fight scene (which I didn't really enjoy much).

I love it when a movie like this does something that you wouldn't expect for the betterment of the story. Makes the danger more real.

Plus, Magneto can fix him right up before Sentinel action in DOFP

I just assumed Mariko would offer to patch him up (if he wanted). She's got the facilities and the tech for handling adamantium.

Would have enjoyed the movie if the entire third act happened without the fixed healing factor...

The bone claws are so natural and animalistic than I can't help but love them. I hope that he keeps them, and I kind of liked the final fight.

When SS was about to cut his claws the first time I cringed. Such an integral part of the character and it would suck if they went through with it. BUT THEN they had the balls to actually go through with it! It was sweet! But in a sad way. I was waiting to see if his bone claws would grow back. Thank god they did.

Agree. It took balls to go through with it.

Was shocking and you felt it, superbly done.

The third act needed some good points and this was one of them, never fond of the bone claws until this film.

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.

I thought the same, but was hoping it wouldn't happen. I think, as a contained story, The Wolverine plays better if he doesn't get the adamantium claws back.

No, I hated how he lost the adamantium claws in this film. They missed the opportunity to have him lose them to Magneto. Instead he lost them to a cheap throw away villain.

You can't even say that there's a benefit of having a stronger healing or being less vulnerable to Magneto since he still has the skeleton...So dumb.

Really didn't like Wolverine loosing Adamantium, kinda felt like Stark remote controlling his suits. Although I did like they way he finished off Yashida, probably the first Berserk moment in the movies.

This^
I am not that bothered by the removal, but felt unnecessary, imo removing his healing felt enough for character development and also Adamantium is kinda his trademark.

Why would Magneto be in a position to take his claws away? What purpose would that serve in DOFP? Wouldn't it be more fitting for Mags to help him get his claws BACK now?

It served THIS movie to have his claws removed. THIS movie. I don't understand the mentality of not using certain scenes because maybe they can sort of possibly do them better later on. That's how you get movies like Iron Man 2, Origins, etc. Sure you have to be able to see the forest for the trees but at the same time each movie should absolutely be able to stand on its own.

Why would it need to be in DOFP? It could have been saved for a future film. It would fit that story because Magneto is the staple X-Men villain. He and Wolverine have a history together now. Most importantly Magneto has the ability to make it happen and it would be believable.

Wolverine lost his claws in this film as part of some ridiculous scheme to drill into his bones and suck out his healing powers via a giant robot. This is the adamantium bullet all over again except this time since fanboys decided they would love this movie before it was released, this terrible plot device has been given a pass.

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.
