Five New X-Men Origins: Wolverine Photos to Hold Us Over!
With the X-Men Origins: Wolverine trailer due out in a few weeks, we're easily excited by all things Wolverine. In addition to the cover shot on Empire, we've got five new photos (thanks to SpoilerTV) to share with you and hold you over until we see the new trailer. Whether or not you actually thought that shot of Gambit looked good, I don't think there's any way you could say these new photos don't look awesome. I'm certain Wolverine is going to be a bad ass movie in the end no matter what. Those who saw the unfinished Comic-Con footage may recognize a lot of these, including the opening where Wolverine and Sabretooth are shot by a firing squad but walk away unhurt and laughing. Check them out!
X-Men Origins: Wolverine is directed by South African filmmaker Gavin Hood, of the Oscar winner Tsotsi and Rendition previously. The script was written by veteran screenwriter David Benioff, of 25th Hour, Troy, and The Kite Runner previosuly. The character of Wolverine was first created by Len Wein and John Romita Sr. back in 1974. Fox will debut X-Men Origins: Wolverine in theaters on May 1st, 2009.
