I thought I'd given up on all things mutant following the Days of Future Past movie.

But this looks fucking great! Maybe it's just the Johnny Cash, which you can't help be moved by.

i think it looks like an acting lesson by Mr Jackman, never cared that much for Wolverine in the comics, but he really has grown on me in those hands. Very credible representation, kind of summoned the  Ulysses line for me.  "Though much is taken, much abides; and though We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are". feel some sympathy, a shared age concern.  

hello mate, best wishes.

In honour of Wolverine month at Marvel, and the coming-up new movie, here is the hidden history of Wolverine revealed.
You may have heard the rumours that Marvel originally planned for Wolverine to be revealed as an actual wolverine mutated by the Canadian government? I have heard the rumours before, but I heard that this was originally the editors plan, and Len Wein rejected the idea when he created the character in the pages of the Incredible Hulk.
However, as this link shows, that wasn't actually the case. Marvel still had plans to make that Wolverine's origin, until Archie Goodwin decided to take that origin as a quick solution to the creation of Spider Woman. Marvel would eventually ret-con away this Spider Woman origin as a false memory, thereby saving that character as well.
It's amazing to think that fans were saved from this horrible idea only by last-minute happenstance, which gave this proposed origin to a different character.
Just imagine how much trouble Chris Claremont would have had trying to flesh out a fully-realized human character from a mutated wolverine!
What would the eventual Weapon X series (by Barry Windsor Smith) have looked like had this origin been kept?
The character of Wolverine would have ended up more akin to Teenage Mutant Ninja Wolverine, rather than the three-dimensional character who became Marvel's most popular character under Claremont.

For the truth of this, scroll down to the third "comic book urban legend":

A worthy send-off for the original cinematic Wolverine and Professor X. The kid who played X-23 did a pretty good job as well.

That little pre-movie teaser they played [ Spoiler : featuring Deadpool ] was a nice unexpected treat.

Spent the whole first 20 minutes feeling sad. Can assert with emphasis the great accuracy of the Wolverine, Xavier, Caliban interplay. Wolvie don't want to really deal with the day to day, so he isn't LISTENING to Caliban when he talks about it.  Passive aggressive answers when Caliban says things, turning away snarling, not listening to what is said, but what he THINKS is being said.

Movie was great, but bitter drinking for me.

May we all die before dementia sets in.

The girl-child was amazing, really great.

the movie was awesome. the other two wolverine-flicks got nothing on this one, no-thing at all. hugh jackman didn't need to carry the movie on his own. i guess third time really is the charm.
sure its still a superheromovie and has flaws, but dang.

the laura-actress was amazing. her action-scenes in particular.

I really liked this one. Jackman got a LOT more to play with than in the previous films, and he delivered on all fronts. The interplay between him and Stewart's Professor X was heart-rending. I also liked the way they played with the idea of what happens when the most powerful telepath in the world gets dementia.

You guys pretty much summed it up. It was a friggin' masterpiece. I can't wait for the black-and-white edition to be released.
thanks to john constantine , i'll now wear trench coats, smoke and drink constantly, talk in a british accent, get a sting haircut, fuck lots and lots of people, start a punk band, piss off people on a daily basis for shits and giggles, and literally piss on vampires and trick demons into curing my cancer.

like a BOSS.
