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.
