just throwing this out as i've seen a lot of people on other boards ***** about the inclusion of character that have nothing to do with wolverines origins, but maybe it wont be 100% set in the past. what if its done in modern day where characters like blob, gambit etc are used and there are flash backs to weapon X for stuff like silverfox

has it been confirmed when its set
 
Every script that i've seen has the film being set exclusively in the past.

Oh, and the_ultimate_evil, do you ever go to the Forbidden Planet in Belfast?

That's an interesting theory but it's doubtfull.
 
Everything in X-Men Origins: Wolverine is "leading up to the events in 'X-Men'." The film may not be exclusive to one single year, but it will still all take place in the past.
 
I didn't know where else to pose this query, so I put it in here.

Is X-Men Origins: Wolverine a prequel or a spin-off? Or both?
 
I bet Gambit appears just before the events of x-1.
 
What would be really cool is if Wolverine is shown recruiting new members for the X-team at the near end of the movie and he goes to New Orleans to recruit Gambit for the future X4 :D (as a surprise twist ending...) Of course this would be taking place POST X3 .. this would be soo cool :) Also Kitsch is signed for a 3 picture deal..

No it wouldn't. Anything hinting towards X3 is uncool. :dry: (Unless it's a scene where someone wakes up and X3 happened to be a very bad dream, but let's not start "The Debate" again...)

Also Kitsch is signed for a 3 picture deal..
That doesn't mean anything. 3 picture deal is the standard nowdays.
 
Gambit has to encounter Stryker at one point in the movie. Stryker has a file on him in X-2. I would love to see Wolverine, Deadpool and Gambit in a Weapon X-team and then something forces them to leave Weapon X just before X-1 happens. I know it's a major change in the Weapon X storyline but wolverine,Deadpool and Gambit on the same team would be so awesome :woot:
Of course they would have to have some leverage to get Gambit to join the Weapon X program.
 
I don't know. Gambit may not have to encounter Stryker. Stryker seems to collect data on all mutants regardless of whether or not he's encountered them.
 
After seeing the trailer i'm more confused about the films timeline with Storm etc thrown in to mix.
 
From watching the trailers, the film's earliest date is the late 1890s where 12-year-old James Howlett (Wolverine) kills his biological father Thomas Logan and wounds his half-brother Dog (Sabretooth)...

From there we go to WWI in the 1910s where the 30-year-old Logan (Wolverine) fights...

Fast forward to WWII in 1944 where Wolverine re-encounters his estranged half brother Victor Creed, whom he most likely will not recognize from the events that took place 50 years earlier. The two 60-year-olds fight side by side on D-DAY...

Enter early 1970s Vietnam, where the 80-year-old Logan boys (Wolverine and Sabretooth) have become mercenaries in the name of the U.S. Army. At this point they get captured by the opposition and Stryker somehow gets a shot at making a deal with the two.

Judging by the clothes the women are wearing in this photo (and Gambit's sideburns), the Gambit scene(s) take place in late 70s New Orleans. Gambit encounters Wolverine and Sabretooth for a yet to be revealed reason.

Storm was in her late 20s in X1 which was set a few years after 2000. That means she was a little girl at some point in the late 70s. Cyclops was supposed to be in his early 30s in X1, so that explains Tim Pocock - the 20-year-old who plays Scott in the movie.

So the film pretty much covers a hundred years of Wolverine/Sabretooth history.
 
Wolverine is canadian would he of been fighting in the American Civil War?
 
It looks like to me, you have the 1800s days of wolverine, through the civil war, through WW1 and or 2 and Vietnam, then the Weapon X program, then 10 or so years before X-men 1.

From that picture floating around It looks like Blob at some point is not the fat character from the comics, that weapon X maybe made him look somewhat like the Blob we know. Could be Sabertooth is catching up with all the members of the weapon x team and kiling them, so could explain Deadpool not being disfigured early on, and needing a mask later in the movie.

Gavin Hood said so in his interview with Empire.

Here's the timeline of the film:

James Howlett/Origin - 1830 or so

Logan/Civil War - 1861 or so

Logan/WWI - 1914 or so

Logan/WWII - 1944

Logan/Vietnam/Team X - 1970 or so

Logan/Wolverine/Weapon X/Encounter with Gambit, etc - 1985.
 
Civil War? Are you serious?

I have always thought of Logan being 100 years old not 200. That just sounds a bit ridiculous to me. I was fine with him being born in the late 1800's
 
I dont care about the age i am wondering why the hell a Canadian is fighing in the AMERICAN civil war?????

I'm happier with this, I wanted the Civil War history in there.

Has Rose been cast or she being left out so we can see Logan develop on his own?
