As promised, Fox aired the first of three TV spots tonight for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The remaining two TV spots will air over the next two nights and together they will form a short narrative revealing the origins of Wolverine. This is what we've all been waiting to see ever since Fox first unleashed the teaser trailer - dark and intense moments from the origins of Wolverine and damn does it look good! I really can't wait to see what they show the next two nights, because this was one hell of an intro and I'm sure there's plenty more to come! Stay tuned for the next TV spot tomorrow night during "House" at 8PM.
Watch the first TV spot for X-Men Origins: Wolverine titled "Outcasts":
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.
