as much as WE cry and moan about how bad it is we are all going to to see wolverine 2 when it comes out even if FOX still has rights. theres no way they are going to let that go of the x-men characters. WE just dont get it, if WE keep going to see crappy movie after cappy movie then the studios will keep spitting 'em out. i am not sure what OUR obsession is with going to see movies that we know are going to be terrible.

So here's a (minor plot point) question. I seem to remember one old issue where Wolverine got into it head to head with Captain America, full on claws and shield bashing. If I remember right, since both were Adamantium, neither could break, penetrate the other. How in the world did a adamantium bullet pierce his adamantium skull, based on that old idea? Just a question.

I like all the ideas in this article, but there is hope.  There are sequels that have improved upon their original source;  however, they are way too rare.

Godfather II, Aliens, Empire Strikes Back, Spiderman 2, X2 (I stand firm that X1 is a crap movie in hindisight.  Loved it at the time, but really weak story, bad SFX, stupid action scenes)  I'm sure there are more out there.

The Japan story can redeem many faults from the first film, but like many of you, I have no faith in Fox executives to do this right.  They have not made a truly great comic adaptation to date. (Yes, this includes X2.  It was much better than X1, but I still don't think Singer belongs directing action movies.  His best films were suspense thrillers; the usual suspects, apt pupil)

The sad thing is that Fox won't give up their rights.  Even Disney won't be able to wrestle it away from them.

Abandon all hope!

Just don't have Gavin Hood direct it. The adamantium bullet was stupid. Even though I thought Caps shiled was mix of vibranium and adamantium, the point is an adamantium bullet really shouldn't be able to pierce his adamantium laced skull. It might dent it, causing some sort of damage but not go through it.  I mean he`s fought Lady Deathstrike a few dozen times. Her claws are adamantium. With their logic she should have been able to cut his arms and legs off with no problem. Its just bad writing.

The problem with Wolverine, the comic character these days as we are trying to remember when he did this or that is that Marvel has retconned some much of his past like 3 or 4 times to fit in with his memory problems, half the comic issues we read in the late 80's and 90's never even happened. All because it took Marvel so long to decide to finally give the fans an origin.

I know we've had this discussion many times but Captain America's shield is vibranium, iron and one other still unknown alloy  hence the formula hasn't been replicated.

MY PERSONAL PROS AND CONS.......SPOILERS!!!!!!

 

PROS: 

Sabretooth...Stryker.... Reynolds before they fucked his shit up... Gambits opening line (specifically the "owe money" quip, not the table chatter before wolverine sat down)...young Cyclops blasting his school apart...having Creed trigger Cyclops's first use of power....Wolverine Vs. Sabretooth (that could have been the whole movie if you ask me, fuck all the other shit, keep that shit concise and intense)...the fact that they set up Emma Frost to be a potental human-hating villain in the future...seeing Wolverine get his jacket from X-Men 1.....the opening credit sequence...Wolverine actually getting to decapitate someone....Gambits eyes turning red when he used his power the 1st time...some parts of the last fight...

CONS:

Gambit runs like a girl....not enough Wolverine Vs. Sabretooth (jmho)....the new "Deadpool"....Will.I.Am smh...the ridiculous and useless portrayal of Fred Dukes aka the Blob....the fact they just plain wasted Gambit and Deadpool in this movie...the ADAMANTIUM BULLET!?!?!?!?....lack of true berserker Wolverine....Wolverine smiled way too much in this movie....the fact that Gambit didnt throw a single card in the alleyway (in the comics, if Gambit would have thrown the whole deck at him right off the bat like he did in the bar , there would be nothing left of that bar and they'd be scraping the majority of wolverine off the walls in the alley, not to mention everyone else)....total waste of Emma Frost unless they are planning to bring her back....the fact that Wolverine loses his jacket by the end of the movie but somehow has it in X1....Wolverines dogtags were different than they were in X-Men wtf....

i could go on but i dont have time...peace

This article is right on the money. And it makes me more depressed we didnt get what we wanted. fuk fuk FUCK!!!!!

If there was ever to be another freaking "reboot" it should be WOlverine. Rated HARD R, with a Wolverine in full costume, bloody, and intestines and other body parts hanging all over him, while drooling w/ bloodlust in a berserker rage.... FUK YAAAAA!!!!!

I've only read a few wolvie comics, so I'm basin most of this on the movies.  This one is way better than X3(i bout vomited in me popcorn), and had more action than X2.  In the incarnation we have been given by the studios for the x movies, this one does what it can with the mess Singer spitted out with the first one.  It actually felt like logan got to "use" his claws in origins where as the previous was just a joke.  Hopefully Jackman will have more control over the next one
