Five Great X-Men Origins: Wolverine Character Profiles
In three more weeks, the summer movie season will finally kick off with X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which still has quite a bit of buzz, despite being leaked online. MTV has debuted five individual character profiles - 30-second video intros to five of the main characters we'll see in the movie. Just in case you didn't know who Wolverine or Sabretooth were (I really hope that's no one), these videos will provide you with a very quick introduction. In addition to those two, there are profiles on Gambit (played by Taylor Kitsch), Deadpool aka Wade Wilson (played by Ryan Reynolds), and Wraith (played by Will.i.am). Enjoy!
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 this summer.
