    They both feel like offshoot Wolverine Jrs. to me.

    So what other characters do we expect to see in this movie?

    Well we know...

    Silver Samurai
    Viper
    Mariko
    Yukio

    And a Jean Grey cameo...

    There's also IMDB


    Id love for this story to remain small and personal. But... Knowing fox, i wouldnt be shocked if Armor, psylocke or a reference to deathstrike or sunfire happened either...

    I do hope and think mangold isn't going to hammer us with random cameos. Though a part of me would also really love a schriber-tooth reference or cameo

    What ever happened to that rumour of that American mutant adversary that Wolverine might face? The army guy who was supposed to burst into flames or something. I'm not quite sure. Was that debunked ages ago?

    I never heard of it.... Sounds like a combination of Nuke and Nitro though.

    I just wonder how much further after X3 this takes place...

    I mean we assume Storm went on to run the school with iceman and kitty as teachers and possibly the occasional help of beast.... But what if the reason he left and "all his friends are gone" is because the mansion was destroyed, storm killed, and presumably kitty and Iceland didn't survive. And this "burst into flame guy" hired by the military, did it? Wolverine tracks him to Japan, kills him. And scratches at old scars while uncovering a much bigger story... Ending the film with wolverine coming back to the states where sentinels have taken over

    It was a while back. Round about the same time we were getting the first set pics.

    Not sure. I don't see it happening though. It would feel too much like DoFP was using The Wolverine as a prologue that way. I think Wolverine feels lost after killing Jean and the state the X-men are left in at the end of X3 and he goes to Japan to find himself.

    That's what id bet on as well but mangold has said "wolverines friends are dead" which surely can't just mean jean, cyke , and xavier imo.... Not only that... But after the events of X3 id also wonder why Wolverine wouldn't feel paranoid about not being there to protect the x-kids. Surely the world isn't going to be "thrilled" about mutants... More so than ever

    I could deal with one if they were done really well. If it's just a shoddy cameo, I don't want them at all.

    Awesome!

    Cause she has claws and rage. She wouldnt exist without him, but alot of characters wouldnt exist without Wolverine. Regardless of those traits shes an excellent character and very different then Logan. I definitely can see how it could turn out more of the same though without proper focus though.

    I like, X-23, I'd like to see her eventually

    but, while I loathe Daken, he'd be an easier easter egg to fit in the movie
    just have to show logan with a japanese woman in the flashback portion, show she was pregnant, and blam, daken cameo

    Yeah me too, I wish Fox put out webisodes or something on some of these characters. They have so many. Hopefully the future of the franchise branches the Universe.

    I don't think the mansion is destroyed. I think it'd be better if he chose to leave and be a bum rather than stay with the school. I think there will be Sentinel-y things going on in the background of this movie though. Maybe the mansion is destroyed at the end when Wolverine returns to America..

    Both Mariko and the setting looks lovely. Even in that grainy pic.

    Excerpt from interview with Rila Fukushima (Yukio). Nothing too interesting, but anyway.

    I'm trying to catch up on the news with this movie. Could someone fill me in on what is known about the Jean Grey cameo?

    Or is that it? Just that its known she has a cameo.
