A Few More Last Minute X-Men Origins: Wolverine Photos
Can you believe that X-Men Origins: Wolverine will be in theaters in only 32 more days? Time really flies, that's for sure. I really do love a good photo, and for movies we usually only get to see a few of them. This time, our friends at XMenFilms.net got the best batch of photos from X-Men Origins: Wolverine that I've seen yet. Featured below are a some of the better ones, and you can see all of them in high res over on their site. I'm intrigued by how much they're trying to sell the other superheroes in this in addition to Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. Hopefully our buddy Logan still gets the most screen time. Enjoy the photos!
Wolverine lives a mutant life, seeks revenge against Victor Creed (who will later become Sabretooth) for the death of his girlfriend, and ultimately ends up going through the mutant Weapon X program.
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 everywhere on May 1st.

Not looking foward to this....Looked at the toys today in Wal-mart, they are going to screw up deadpool big time!

I am excited about the movie but the Release poster wasn't much of a badass. I'll watch the movie on time though.

Only 32 days to go hey. Well who really gives a rats ass. Have seen all of this film from all of the trailers and tv spots you have been showing. I'd rather you count down Star Trek and Terminator Salvation then this wanna be of a Marvel film. If Marvel had total control on it like they have with Ironman, then maybe i'd be a little more excited.

Fuck this movie. They fucked Deadpool.
Conrad on Mar 30, 2009
Deadpool is going to be DEADPOOL in his own spinoff this is just the origin of how he got the scars, they just hapen to be doing it in a way that most people won't understand until the films come out.

The final manure that fuck is crapping out I see. This film has been completely butchered by Fox and Rothman (he repainted sets without notifying Gavin Hood sparking a huge fight with the suits). The dialogue sounds horrible, the sfx looked mediocre and unfinished, Deadpool has been ruined by a unnecessary story change. I'm not watching this movie thats all I know. I'll catch it once its playing on t.v or something (maybe).

Can't judge till you see it. You never know, the previews may not be an accurate depiction of the movie. I've seen movies with badass previews. I remember seeing the first trailer for Troy and thought it was going to be amazing. I bought the tickets for my buddies and I all at once with my credit card and expected them to pay me back later... I still haven't gotten paid back. And I don't blame them. Previews lie, see the film for yourself.

Most of you guys make me scratch my head you think hulk was born green Peter Parker was born with webs in his wrists. this is Deadpool's origins just as much as it is Wolverine's first of all let set it straight Reynolds has even said this is not Deadpool. It is Wade Wilson turning into the failed experiment before turning into Deadpool it is the creature he becomes before deadpool it is how he said it is his humble beginnings.You wont get the deadpool you know from the comics merc with the mouth ninja get up and all because he is not at that stage in his deformation yet.

Woo. There are so many hot guys in this. That's enough for me.
Bee on Mar 30, 2009
Where's the cameo by X-23?
WEAPON X on Mar 30, 2009
I think some of you guys need to read the title of this movie before you go to bed every evening. It´s called Wolverine, not Deadpool (and I don´t give a damn about him, I want to see Wolverine!). They need to introduce some other mutants but this movie will be obviously about Wolverine. Boycott a movie because some character looks different than in comics (did you notice that comics is mostly painted?) and possibly damage a movie that could turn to be very good. I don´t understand you. If you at least respect Hugh Jackman for his work in this (and that he probably saved what he could), you should go to see it.

Im still going opening nite
Trey on Mar 30, 2009
#9, Yeah, I'm coming to that conclusion too. I was pretty pissed when I caught a glimpse of the Hero Squad 'Deadpool' toy at Wal-Mart the other day... Almost made me swear off the movie all together. Then, I came to the conclusion you did, about it telling Deadpool's orgin... We'll get to see the experiments Weapon X did on him, so that'll be cool. Hopefully.
nate on Mar 30, 2009
I'm pumped for this movie, but at the same time I'm scared that they're overcompensating the hype to just draw numbers for opening weekend(b/c its not going to be good) Anybody else feeling that?
Nick Sears on Mar 30, 2009
Getting worried about all these characters. The more Wolverine/Sabretooth development, the better. Perfectly happy if they just give Deadpool a little filler time.
WEAPON X on Mar 30, 2009
What the hell is Deadpool's power? I get the swords and that he knows kung fu and what not, but why does that make him a super hero eligible for the Weapon X program? When I do some searches all I find is that he's very agile and quick, but that shouldn't qualify him for super status, right?
peloquin on Mar 30, 2009
He also has a healing factor like Wolverine and Sabertooth peloquin. Most of the mutants in the weapon x program had this. Partially why they were able to operate and experiment on them all of the time.
Maxx on Mar 30, 2009
#18: Deadpool has an uncurable cancer, and the Weapon X program gives him a regeneration ability on par or greater than that of Wolverine's. He's been seen to grow back limbs at some points in the comics. However, a side effect is that it made him absolutely hideous in the process, which is why he wears the mask.
RC on Mar 30, 2009
Thanks for the replies guys, I was unaware of the healing factor and regeneration abilities. I hope he grows back a limb in the film! If he has an "uncurable cancer" though than why doesn't he just cure himself with his power? I don't really understand that, guess I'll have to wait for them to describe how that works in the film.
peloquin on Mar 30, 2009
ok look at the very first picture everybody, the one on top of the article the one where he is in a white tank. DID HE GAIN WEIGHT??? hahaha
zach on Mar 30, 2009
Meh. Don't care to see this. I wish they'd just put him in the brown and yellow. But this movie looks generic at best. And Gambit, that hair is so bad. It looks like they weren't content screwing up the core X-Men, they must now go through and make sure that all of the mutants you loved are messed up too.
Due on Maple Street on Mar 30, 2009
people the movie is about wolverine its about him ok and its a pretty good movie and a perfect way to start the summer season
alan on Mar 30, 2009
wolverine looks good,sabertooth looks good,they fucked gambit,they fucked deadpool(what a fucking crime.)i would like to fuck emma frost.so i'm here hopeing three out of four of my favorite charactors aren't so fucked up that the film turns out to be shit.also i've seen the x-men origins wolverine deadpool action figure & he has a mask on, machine gun & two swords.
zetsu on Mar 30, 2009
What is the big deal with Deadpool? All I hear is how they screwed up Deadpool. The movie isn't about him. I would be more worried about them screwing up Wolverine, since the movie's main character is Wolverine. .
Mikenificant1 on Mar 30, 2009
im going to check it out, some scenes from the trailer dont seem to make sense, but you have to see it to understand it.
Said on Mar 30, 2009
cool, the hopes I have are waning in light of the trailers which weren't that great, but I like Jackman Schreiber and Reynolds so I'll probably see it in the end.
Xerxex on Mar 30, 2009
These pics don't add much, except to confirm that Liev Schreiber is squeezing a loaf behind his slow leap to Sabretooth-dom. I'm seeing this movie b/c, unlike Watchmen, it's the movie I can convince my favorite girl to see simply b/c a) she has a crush on Hugh Jackman, and b) she has a crush on Wolverine. I'm not gonna waste time nerding on out Wade Wilson. I'm a lifelong Comics fan - and I've never heard of the guy until this movie. I'm happy for Deadpool fans that they'll eventually get to see their man onscreen. It just seems to me this is more internet whining that - clearly - isn't going to AFFECT the movie-making process, so we might as well be HAPPY that his story's even making its way to the cinema. Same goes for Wolverine. I'm seein' it. I'm lookin' forward to it. I'm not gonna complain. It's a movie about superheroes. Just pass me the effin' popcorn and tell me a good story, okay!

Can't believe no one's mentioned the leak of this movie here yet.
Andrew on Apr 2, 2009
i watched the leaked workprint...total trash!!!
RedSkull on Apr 2, 2009
i saw the leaked movie...it fucking sucked ass. no story, just a commercial for action figures.
wolviefan on Apr 2, 2009
agreed it was trash but i was entertained by the missing special effects
Jon Bertrand on Apr 5, 2009
I saw the leaked print, too. There were some redeeming qualities to it but overall I'd have to agree that it was a huge letdown. The revisionist history made me want to puke, and they completely ruined several big-name characters. The director seems to have wiped his ass with the classic Weapon X storyline and this is what we get. I won't even get into the problems (vast and egregious) with the handling of Deadpool in this movie. If you're a fan of the merc with the mouth, I'm not kidding...do not bother with this movie. You WILL leave the theater pissed off beyond belief. I'm not a drooling fanboy, i'm not a comics geek...just someone who likes a good story and RESPECTS THE FUCKING SOURCE MATERIALS. Why do these assholes keep getting the chance to fuck over comic properties to turn a quick buck when they could just as easily make the same amount of money if not more by turning out something even remotely indicative of the source materials? That way everyone's happy, but no. I won't give anything away as to why this was a turd burger of a movie, but mark my words and consider yourself forewarned.
Jahrta on Apr 13, 2009
Like all of you could write something better! Quit being so negative about the movie just because the the costumes are wrong or the sets are painted the wrong color! Get a life! Go see the movie and if you like it fine, if not, hold out for Transformers 2.
Greggandjen on Apr 25, 2009
You know what the movie in general great. The problem deadpool since i was a kid was my favorite superhero and you know what the fucked him up. Ryan renolyds whould play a great deadpool if thay made a deadpool movie.
