Meet Wolverine, Gambit, Wade Wilson, John Wraith and the friendly Sabretooth. These mutants were kind enough to give you a little introduction to themselves in the form of these short teaser videos.

These clips for X-Men Origins: Wolverine originate from MTV but we found some YouTube versions that are playable worldwide. Before we get to that, the poster above is also brand new. Marvel put it up on their website a few days ago and I thought this would be a good place to display it.

As for the videos, the most entertaining introduction is the one featuring Wade Wilson, played by the always-awesome Ryan Reynolds. I’d say my second favorite goes to Gambit even though his is a little cheesy – what’s with the awful purple glow on his spinning staff in that one scene?

Watch and enjoy:

Taylor Kitsch as Remy LeBeau (Gambit)

I’m glad this movie is getting some more cool marketing before its release in a few weeks – things felt pretty grim this last week or so since the early pirated version of the film made its way online. With the great stuff we’ve been hearing about Star Trek, and the cool stuff we’re seeing for Terminator Salvation, it felt like Wolverine was losing some attention.

What do you think of the five characters and their introductions?
