Wolverine: Origin - Title Sequence

Arriving July 9th

Marvel is adding to the hype of this July’s The Wolverine by releasing the Wolverine: Origin from Marvel Knights Animation. Check out the opening title sequence below as well as the details on the DVD.  MARVEL KNIGHTS ANIMATION’S WOLVERINE: ORIGIN debuts for the first time on July 9, 2013 from Shout! Factory.
Synopsis: Wolverine is the best there is at what he does - although of course, what he does isn’t very nice. But long before he was a member of the X-Men, a tormented experiment of the Weapon-X project, or even a savage bar brawler known as Logan – he was simply a young boy.
What incredible forces created this man, the world’s greatest killing machine? For years, Wolverine has searched desperately for answers from his past, from the wilds of the Canadian Wilderness to the teeming cities of Japan and beyond. And despite his perseverance and longing for the truth, he remains an enigma to himself and those around him. But, in this landmark event, Marvel reveals all: the birth and childhood of young James Howlett…the intriguing secrets of his family history…and the tragedy that changed everything.
Welcome to the greatest story never told.
Bonus Features Include:
An exclusive retrospective with the Eisner Award-Winning creative team behind Origin.
Total Feature Running Time: +/- 66 minutes

 Ugh. Motion comics are the laziest, and worst, forms of animation. It even makes the old 70's Hanna Barbera animated crap look technologically superior. No thanks.

 I love these. Definitely getting this when it comes out

 I see them as a fun road trip kind of thing now. Or a way to get a lazy friend to discover comics.

Yeah, a motion comic?  I know how to flip pages, no thanks.  All motion comics should clearly state what they are rather than promoting them as animation films.

I am not a fan either.  I bought one of the marvel knights packs on dvd before and made it 10 minutes into the first one.  I was completely bored.  Marvel has such an amazing collection of mini series and epic stories that they could release as animated features, but they don't.  I could imagine a Punisher animated series done in the adult style of the old animated Spawn series. 

Ultimate Avengers vids were decent and loved the 90's animated X-men...other than that, I find Marvel fails at animated features.  Disney needs to assign someone to do this right!

 Agree with everyone here on their feelings RE: motion comics.

Disney did an AMAZING job animating the Tron: Uprising Series which you can still stream via Netflix. I'd defnitely advise a viewing. Just splurged on all 19 episodes from season 1. I'm guessing there will only be one season, which is too bad since it was SOO good. Animation was seamless and fluid. I have to give it equal accolades to Young Justice.

As for this motion comic? Well, one of the best all time graphic novels ever. Now, if anyone had the patience and wanted to make an insanely good movie, they could just mimic this graphic novel and give everyone some much needed insight into our favorite Canucklehead.

 Of the Motion Comix I've seen the only one I have'nt liked was "Watchmen" and that was because of the Voice-Over's......

But I thought I.M.:Extermis was cool and so was Thor:Blood Brothers.....

@fatpantz, from your lips to God's ears on the adult Punisher animated series.  If you liked the two Ultimate Avengers movies, you should definitely check out Avengers:Earth's Mightiest Heroes, there are 3 seasons, tons of guest starts and at least attempts at some of the most well known storylines.  And for the rest, I'm not a big fan of motion comics either.  I don't hate 'em I just wouldn't spend time or money on them.
