X-Men Origins: Wolverine is a flick which has been plagued by much rumor, as of late. Some are saying that director Gavin Hood (Rendition) has been butting heads with Fox execs over the “dark tone” of the film; others are saying that star Hugh Jackman is butting heads with his director; and quite a few people close to the film are promising that it will feature a few surprises, and more cameos from Marvel’s mutant gallery than you can shake a stick at.

UGO.com was kind enough to do the research the rest of us were too lazy to do, putting together a fact sheet of confirmed (as in fully quoted and linked) Wolverine plot points, in order to help us all sort fact from fiction.

Well… as it just so happens, we here at Screen Rant are not in the business of ruining the movie before you’ve gotten a chance to see it. However, the UGO fact sheet is pretty handy, and those who don’t mind being cinematically clairvoyant can get a look at it here – but I warn you, there are a few SPOILERS behind that link! Preview-phobic readers might want to avert their eyes.

Personally, I’m hoping this film does end up being more on the adult side of things.  Wolvy has never been the most kid-friendly character in Marvel’s stable, and his story has always been a savage, gritty, sordid tale. (Hence his ability to rapidly heal from injury.)

I’m also itching to see how the Wolverine/Sabretooth relationship is going to play out. To fanboys of the world, the Creed/Logan rivalry is as famous as the Batman/Joker conflict.

Guess we’ll get the answers to ALL questions when X-Men Origins: Wolverine hits theaters on May 1, 2009.

  1. If you gotta look please don’t bring the spoilage here! Just tell us Good, Bad, Or Ugly..

  2. I am actually looking forward to this movie, along with Star Trek and Transformers 2, as one of THE summer movies of 2009. I think that Hugh Jackman was PERFECTLY cast as Wolverine in the original X-Men movies, possibly one of the most perfect casting jobs in any superhero movie (along with Christopher Reeve as Superman). I’m not going to check out the cheat sheet because I don’t want to spoil the film for myself, but I do hope that the film is more in the vein of X-Men 2 and not Spiderman 3…..

  3. Oh yes, the director of Rendition, I’m so excited to see this one… [/sarcasm]

  4. to the old man:


  5. I’m avoiding the sheet as well.

    As for Hugh Jackman, I really liked him as wolverine but do not think he was perfect cast. He was the tallest actor of all the mutants…but Wolverine should be the shortest and more thick instead. I think alot of people like him because they made his character the lead in every aspect of the film which was not good for a team-hero movie…because of that the franchise was ruined, X-3 was a disaster :(

    I’d like to see an X-man flick with a large team with Wolvy not in the lead role, but used as the front-line grunt which he is.

  6. Hey Rob, did you get my email? If not, check your spam folder.


  7. Rob, can you see anyone else being Wolverine now besides Jackman?? He’ll always be Wolverine to me now, much like Mark Hamill will ALWAYS be Luke Skywalker to me. Some actors just take a role and OWN it. Jackman did it to Wolverine for me in X-2 when the school was invaded and he just went NUTS.

  8. Need I remind people that Wolvy’s body type is akin to that of Sly Stallone’s??? Is that what you want? Sly Stallone playing Wolverine?

  9. Kofi, I like Sly, but NOT as Wolverine!!! LOL!

  10. I am dying to see this. I loved Jackman as Wolverine, for me, he was exactly what I pictured from the comics. I was disappointed Gambit wasn’t in the movies but glad to see he’s in this one. Real shame Brian Cox isn’t back as Stryker, he was really good! Can’t say I’m excited about Ryan Reynolds, I think he’s too much of a goof to play Deadpool. Oh well, can’t have everything…

  11. Chris Benoit would have made the better wolvie. He has all of the aspects Rob mentioned above. Of course benoit died about a year ago, but he made the perfect match for wolvie. If anyone ever watched wrestling (wwe) he was referred to as the rabid wolverine. The plus of it all is that he actually was born raised and live in Canada for all of his life, minus the last 2 to three 3 years before his death. If anyone doesn’t know who he is just google his name and select the image icons. The man is a carbon copy.
