Wolverine In 60 Seconds

wolverine tv spot Wolverine In 60 SecondsThe first in a series of X-Men Origins: Wolverine television spots aired recently and the first thing that I thought of was – “How long is this movie going to be?”

We first see Wolverine in an Adamantium bath and then it cuts to the sideburned one’s childhood. We see how he first discovered to use his claws and we see him throw a (his first?) berserker rage.

There’s quite a bit of early plot exposition crammed into the 60 seconds – but I’m worried that Wolverine is trying to go for a very expansive time frame.

Going by the sets and costumes it looks like this section of the film (or extended flashback) takes place in the late 19th or early 20th Century – making the film look like a comic book version of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Check it out for yourself:


I’m not knocking the film, the last thing that I’d hate to see is a 90 minute Wolverine film, but come on – save something for the sequels. As a modern day “Man With No Name” it looks like Wolverine is about to become the man with a name, Facebook page, Twitter account and an open book life! I suppose that’s what you get when you call the film X-Men Origins.

Maybe I’m wrong – but we’ll find out when the Wolverine marketing machine ramps up before the films release in May 1st, 2009.

  1. @ gary

    did you also know that logan was supposed to be a teenager? also, he didn’t have, the now iconic, funky hair?
    but they changed their minds and well that’s that.

  2. i think the movie has a lot of good stuff in it, but it’s hard to tell with the commercials bombarding us with so much action and characters. i understand that’s what a majority populace wants to see, but it could ruin a movie if the story doesn’t follow (duh right?), anyways I don’t mind change as along as it makes sense. I am rooting for this to be a good flick.

  3. Hey everybody! All in all, bone claws, Sabretooth’s lil bro, Aquaman’s Grand daddy, this film looks like it is going to kick ass! Be there May 1st!

  4. wolverine rocks.
