*SNIKT* It’s The ‘Wolverine’ Teaser Poster

Well, here it is, the first Wolverine teaser poster. It’s definitely as advertised and gives nothing away, except to confirm that Hugh Jackman is playing the feisty Canucklehead. It goes without saying that I will be seeing this in the theater, but I definitely have reservations based on what has been revealed thus far. The trailer has me nervous, but I should let go of any pre-conceived notions in order to give it a fair shake. Anyway, peep the poster and let us know your thoughts below.

The ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ Trailer Has Arrived

Finally, a high quality, real full trailer for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I don’t know, I think I’m still on the fence about this one. Lots of pretty pictures, but I just don’t know about the interpretations of Gambit and some of the other characters. The dialogue and story snippets from this trailer also leave me being kind of wary. I’ll definitely see it, I just really like the character and don’t want to have to pan his first solo film. Although, can it really be any worse than the third X-Men film?
