Cool New Pics From ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’

Published 6 years ago by , Updated February 15th, 2014 at 4:24 pm,

This weekend I wrote about the first official picture of Gambit from X-Men Origins: Wolverine and now we have several new photos from tha film that have appeared online for our viewing pleasure. There are five in total and are all live shots from scenes in the film.

If you got a chance to see the low-quality leaked footage of the teaser trailer featured at this summer’s San Diego Comic-Con, these may look familiar to you as they are all directly taken from scenes shown during that trailer.

The images are not of the highest quality, but what they depict is pretty awesome.

Take a look and see what you think:

Where’s the arm hair, Wolvy?! And why don’t any of the other soldiers get to grow cool facial hair?

My only gripe with these is how Wolverine is just as big as Sabretooth in the film. The actual Wolverine character in the comics is only 5’3″ compared to Sabretooth’s 6’6″ build – a vast difference in physical stature. We know Hugh Jackman is way too tall to be Wolverine but that being said, the filmmakers make no effort to make him appear smaller than Liev Schreiber’s Sabretooth.

In the comics and even in the classic 1990s cartoon, the rivalry between the two arch-enemies was made so significant because of how massive and intimidating Sabretooth was in comparison. But in this film, he doesn’t even seem to be a physical threat as he’s the same size… even arguably a little bit smaller in some of the images. To me, there’s no match, Wolverine plus Adamantium claws beats other dude of same size with less efficient claws. In Bryan Singer’s X-Men, that Sabretooth felt larger and more like the proper character from the comic books.

Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Liev Schreiber, but I dug Tyler Mane’s Sabretooth if we’re talking about the characters representing the source material.

What do you think?

X-Men Origins: Wolverine is directed by Gavin Hood and features a very recognizable cast including Hugh Jackman, Liev Schreiber, Ryan Reynolds, Dominic Monaghan, Taylor Kitcsh, Lynn Collins, Kevin Durand and Danny Huston.

The first official trailer debuts next Friday, December 12th, alongside The Day the Earth Stood Still and the film hits theaters May 1, 2009.

  1. If your a true fan of the X-men your always going to be bitter with the liberties these film studios take. I know I’am. Ok from what I can tell the movie takes us through the history of Wolverine…from the 1800’s through WW2 and Vietnam…all the way up till the time he joined the X-men. My pick for Sabretooth was always Brock Lesnar( The guy is massive and with an acting coach I think he would have done wonderful (plus he’s in his 20’s so he could do sequals) I like Liev but I have a hard time convincing myself that he will be believable…dont get me wrong though I had a good feeling about heath ledger pulling off the joker, but i dont have those same feelings about Liev

  2. so far it looks good,am shure the guy playing sabretooth did good,but i would have thought that the same guy from x-men 1 would play him,he had the good bodymass and hight,and even the same hair as sabretooth,so i dont get wy the took this guy,no offense havent seen the movie yet but it looks al in place.
    o 1 last thing the side burns from both sabretooth and wolverine are good but a litle exadjurated close to there mouths,making it look to mutch,but he nothings perfect

  3. ya know . liev acted great . was too small ? , yep . movie was good tho ,,, i like sid vicious as sabertooth . now dats a great ideal ..


  5. it made wolverine be my favorite superhero and movie.he is awesome and if you hav’nt seen the movie you dont no almost anything about him
