Second X-Men Origins: Wolverine TV Spot: Brothers

As promised, Fox aired the second of three TV spots tonight for X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The final TV spot will air tomorrow night and combined with the first one, they will form a short narrative revealing the origins of Wolverine. This is looking better and better the more we see but I'm beginning to wonder if this is just some editing wizardry or if Wolverine is actually going to be as awesome as this looks? Because it looks damn good! Stay tuned for the next TV spot tomorrow night during "American Idol" at 8PM - or if you hate that show as much as me we'll have it online without any of the fuss without minutes of its debut.
Watch the second TV spot for X-Men Origins: Wolverine titled "Brothers":
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.
