Post Difference between the leaked script and the film

hey guys. awhile back when The Wolverine was in its early production stages and Aronofsky was still attached to direct, i remember people on here talking about the script of the movie and how awesome it was.

to those that have read the script and seen the movie, what was different and what stayed intact?

original script had no viper or jean grey and was much darker

considering many people did not like viper i am guessing original script was superior

Not true. Viper was in the original script but she wasn't a mutant

Why don't people like the Vier? I loved her, I hated her so much I think the actress and script did their jobs right. It also helped that she was hot.

I liked Viper okay. I liked the film in general. Obviously I'll always wonder what Aronofsky would have done with the film. James Mangold is a capable director though, a good one even. Glad we got a film as good as what we got.

Definitely, I hated her so much which is what we were supposed to do. It a tally annoys me when people say she was just bad for bars sakes well look at the amount of sick bastards there are in real life. They're just bad because they can be.

This is something we will probably always wonder. Even though the Wolverine was awesome. But just like X3 we'll always wonder what iSinger or Vaughan would have done with it. It's one if these things we'll always wonder about many films no matter if they turned out good or not.

Chris McQuarrie's script was very much a straight adaption of the Claremont/Miller Japanese saga.

I've got that to read funnily enough, how close is the film to that book?

Shingen was the main villain, Yashida and everything with Harada and the Silver Samurai weren't in the original mini series, it was primarily about Mariko and her arranged marriage and Logan trying to prove himself and defeat Shingen to save Mariko.

In terms of Aronfosky's script, well from what I can recall it had no X3 elements and was a prequel set firmly in the 80s, the word mutant is never mentioned. Logan served as a Yakuza enforcer, there wasn't anything with Yashida and his respect for the Wolverine. Mariko was an actress, Logan at one point wore his yellow and brown costume complete with mask. Silver Samurai was actually three Yashida brothers who wore electrofied armor against Logan. Yukio was like an antagonistic side love interest that tried to provoke Logan's more animalistic tendencies and they had a very powerful sexual relationship, like the Frank Miller version, at one point she had sex with another woman on a train while Logan watched, and towards the end when he decided to pick himself up from the gutter and try to gain honor he ended things with her and then killed her when he found out she was working with Singen. Shingen was more or less the primary antagonist who Logan defeats at the end. The film ends on a downer with Logan being imprisoned.

cool, thanks for that. sounds like if Mangold & Co. would have went along with that script we could have gotten an R rated film.

though i am for the most part happy with what we got at the end. loved that Yukio wasn't an antagonist and ended up being Logan's "bodyguard" which leaves it open for her to come back in future films.

i think the best part about the original script going from you posted is how they did Silver Samurai

The film kept true in a lot of ways, and pulled some of it's scenes directly from the book, such as

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Logan hunting the bear, and then tracking the hunters who poisoned it


Or

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
the arrows that repelled and captured Logan
.

as well as

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
The final fight with Shingen
.

Some other scenes and plot points are also very heavily influenced by the book.

The bullet train sequence - there isn't a bullet train fight in the book but there is a brief scene with a bullet train which I'm sure influenced the scene in the movie.

There were a lot of details that were changed, of course, such as Yashida, the relationship between Harada and Mariko, Jean Grey, Silver Samurai, and a lot of other things.

But all in all, I felt that The Wolverine was the movie that is most like it's comic book counterpart.

I've just read the first chapter, noticed the bear part right away

And I don't really like the sound of that, think what we got seems better.

The script was cool in "oh wow can't believe we'd get an R-rated superhero film!" but aside from that and one or two small things I liked, the film we got was better. It left Logan in a better place and gave him a measure of redemption and hope.

After seeing the film, I'm convinced we dodged a huge bullet when Aronofsky dropped out. Mangold delivered a great film. I fear Aronofsky would've given us "Spockets touch my monkey" Wolverine.

That's whats I thought.

Tbh I hope Aronofsky stays away from CBMs his ideas are bizarre sometimes.

I really hope Mangokd returns to the X-Franchise or even the comic book genre,

Aronofsky is a great talent but I think any foray into 'comic book movie' territory should be a creation of his very own. I'm not sure his talent lies in adaptation of successful properties. His Batman script still fills me with horror.

If he were to do anything I think Punisher would be best suited to him.

I know, I'm asking if you read the script yourself or if this was what you were told. I've been looking for the original script, but I can't find it anywhere.

What I read was basically a spoiler filled review that was posted online about a year ago. I'll try and dig it up if Danoyse says it's okay.

I have read the original script from Christopher McQuarrie. A few details about the story:
  • The immortality theme is non existing
  • In the beginning of the story we find Logan in Canada, he is suffering from amnesia
  • Logan comes to Japan at the promise of getting information about his forgotten past
  • Wolverine is the only mutant in the story
  • Shingen is the main villain
  • Viper works for Shingen
  • Harada and Viper are lovers
  • Harada is the Silver Samurai (classic costume)
  • The Black Clan is central to the plot
