Last Official Poster for X-Men Origins: Wolverine Arrives
See the poster now, catch it in theaters in two weeks. Our friends over at IESB have debuted the final poster for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Unfortunately it's just a tweaked version of the very same teaser poster we posted in January. Is anyone else a bit upset by how unimpressive Fox's marketing campaign for Wolverine has been? I really hate when a huge high-profile blockbuster only uses one design for all of their marketing material. Everything I've seen, including billboards around LA, uses this same shot with the blades in front of him. Come on, try something new Fox! At least give us something that's different!
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.

It looks like a kid did it by cut/paste and color photocopying! After second thought, a kid would of made a better poster than this! What's up with the claws and dumb lighting - it looks as though he is getting a sun tan from the reflection of his claws while the left side is being blasted by a light grenade? Hugh Jackman dressed in a leather jacket by a motorcycle would have sold this movie better..... we already know he has claws dammit. He's been in how many movies already?

A Deadpool poster would have made my day.

Also, it bothers me how ridiculously disproportional his claws are. If his blades were actually that long they would reach down to his shins when he let his arms dangle. I know its just a poster but damn, that's ridiculous.

The movie sucks - believe me getting stirred up about the poster isn't worth it. Neither is the movie.....

Ever since the movie was leaked to the internet the advertising has pretty much vanished. Fox will likely use piracy as an excuse if this movie does not pull in 200 million dollars.

Of course this wasn't advertised creatively because when has Fox ever advertised/marketed their films well? They just over saturate the market with the same lame promo shots and posters. Just part of the "Fox Formula".

It was destined to be crap after the first few trailers

Wasn't that the poster to X-Men 3? Him with the three claws? To symbolize it was the third movie? Fox sucks the big one.

This crap has adorned subway stations, busses and walls of NYC since March 30th (new billboard day).

Girls will eat it up. Guys will be jealous. Comic geeks will go nuts - In more ways than one. Fox will profit. I will get laid. B/c my girl f*cking loves, loves, loves Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. And nothing any comic geek can say will change that. (Unless of course, I open my mouth and admit I'd heard of Deadpool before this movie. Even if I've no idea who 'Waid Wilson' is.) Eat yer popcorn. Stop complainin. In someone else's words: "BITE ME. FAN BOY."

So far Xmen Origins: Wolverine has some of the Lamest, badly created posters yet. There's nothing original here, Lighting doesn't match up, claws are too long, you can tell that the claws were just photoshop in, really who are the GD professionals that's doing this? Why couldn't they just use his fake prop claws that he wears, at least that'll make it look more realistic.

I actually liked the film only because I saw it for free. The end boss is the most rushed piece of crap out there. Yes the movie will make money alott of it. God forbid Deadpool is better then I thought and don't get me started on LAMO Gambit.......
