New Trailer: “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”

Bootlegs of this leaked over the weekend, but none of them were that great in terms of quality.  I feel two ways about this movie.  The first, from a strictly fanboyish perspective is it looks interesting and fun and it’s good to see Hugh Jackman back with the Wolvie claws.  Secondly, though, is that it makes me sad that Jackman has never really escaped the role of Wolverine.

Yes, he’s been in tons of movies since the franchise launched his Hollywood career, yes, he’s been named Sexiest dude around by People Magazine. But it seems like he’s never had any success, strictly speaking box-office-wise, outside of this role.

I guess there are worse things to be known for than playing the iconic Marvel comic book character Wolverine.

I’m most interested in seeing how they handle the glut of mutants ranging from Gambit and Deadpool to The Blob. Liev Shreiber looks like a menacing Sabertooth.
