    it's just throwing fans a bone. we tend to like cameo's and references that interlock everything. Easter Egg's and Cameo's are pretty much a huge part of what makes the SHH go around... the other major half is probably speculation.

    Ah, ok. That I can accept. Haha. :p

    As some have mentioned, in the original script Logan was the only mutant. I think that may have changed, but I hope not.

    well... SS has got to have something to be able to go toe to toe with him. I assume the Ebony blade may come into play...

    Well, I think it just comes down to him being a skilled samurai/swordsman.

    Miriko's father wasn't a mutant, and still kicked Logan's ass with a wooden sword!

    true. But, I assume by movie's end, he'd be very well trained.. that coupled with claws makes me think SS has got to have something

    I suppose. But when they fought in the comics, wasn't it just them slicing and dicing each other? No real abilities coming into play outside of Logan's ability to heal... and SS inability to cut through adamantium.

    Yep.Most of time you couldn't tell the Silver Samauri was a mutant.You can defently
    do the SS as just man with electified armor and swords and do justice to him.

    There's absolutely no need for Silver Sam to be a mutant.

    A lot of people here still remember how about bad XOW was. But once they saw the film and it turned out to be a good movie, they would eventually appreciate the movie. Look at X-Men: First Class. A lot of people didn't think it would turn out as a good movie.

    But he is a mutant in the comics, so he should be a mutant in the movie too.

    But too many think Man of steel will be greatest film ever and that Thor will be do Iron Man level business.

    Chris Nolan's Involvement Is very limited with Man of steel even he admitted It.David Goyer Is princibal writer,and hear Nolan didn't work on script.Watchman was considered a disappointment and sucker punch outright bombed.Plus I absoletly hated the teaser.Bearded Clark Kent doing manual labor? And with Thor the fact they are bringing back one of worst elements of first film(the so unnecsary character of Darcy) plus one of writers was writer of Fantastic Four:Rise of the Silver Surfer(If you are going to bash
    SImon Kinberg for being one of writers of Days of future Past you have to bash him) and Joss Whedon did Thor and Loki better In the Avengers than
    the solo film did(The confornaiton between Thor and Loki Is so much better In Avengers than solo film)

    With James Mangold Fox hired real director.Marvel hired a TV director for Thor(sorry but not all TV directors are Joss Whedon) and Zach snyder Is such a Dumb A(You know what I mean) that he still was trying to deny Zod Is villain.

    Iron Man III without question will be top grossing comic book film of 2013 but I can't say I am overly excited for It.Using the Extremies storyline at least partly.Making War machine look like Iron Patroit.Possibly removing all Chinese elements of The Mandarian and unknown If he will have rings of power.

    Let's hope it's the real deal and not just a courtesy praise.

    The screenplay transcends the source material. It makes Wolverine's nature a mystery to all the other players, something that only works because he's the only non-human in the show.

    The word "mutant" is never even mentioned in it.

    I read a script review that pretty much covered the entire film.

    It was Aronofsky's last revised draft.

    All I can say is brilliant from start to finish.

    I really hope It hasn't changed much from the leaked script details.It seemed pretty
    good.My belief Is character of Zen who convinced wolverine to go to Japan was merged
    Into Yashida(who may be Shingen's father)

    was It ever said Aronofsky worked on script? If It was we can safely confirm that
    god awful Batman Year One script was Frank Miller's fault.
