Gambit looks ace from the brief glimpse though

Not massively impressed by the trailer but the positives are Gambit looking cool, Sabretooth and that stunt with the exploding vehicle and Wolverine flying towards the helicopter - who is the fat bastard by the way?

I'm a huge fan of the previous X-Men films, but I can't say I'm looking forward to this. The cast is great, but the main plot seems to be how Wolverine end's up with memory loss and an adamantium skellington, which has already been covered by the first two films. Since it's clearly supposed to be a prequel to X-Men I'm wondering how their going to deal with the differences between Sabretooth and Liev Schriber's Victor Creed - are they even the same character? And the film appears to be a dumping ground for the fanboy's favourites who haven't turned up in a film yet  - Gambit, Deadpool, Blob etc, as well as all the cameos they've squeezed in (Emma Frost, Cyclops, Storm...).

it certainly did not appear to be as visually interesting as X-men I and II i think they had great atmosphere
this looks more mundane

Yeah that looked dire, but if previous big summer movie's first trailers are anything to go by, it's the type of shot that will be tidied up over the next four months.
Apart from that part I thought it all looked pretty sweet.

Wolverine has arguably the best story out of the entire Marvel franchise, and he should have a film to match. What is immediately worrying for me is the look of Sabretooth. Creed is not a man with a trimmed beard and short hair ffs, he is a monster! Even his depiction in X-Men I looks better than the one in this movie! Bloody hell don't mess that up,

Quite so, messing with the established image of characters. Is it innovation for innovation's sake? And if so, before embarking on it, did they consider researching what the reaction would be from the readers of the graphic novels and the fans of the movies?

I'll tell you what I'm now very much looking forward too, and that's seeing how big of a part they've given Scott Adkins as Weapon XI. After seeing his name mentioned on some other very geeky forums I thought I'd check him out in Undisputed 2 (Don't laugh), and holy shit, where did this awesome bastard come from? He has unbelievable martial arts skills, some of the things he was doing in the above movie were out of this world. He managed to make Michael Jai White look like a decrepid old man, and he's no slouch himself.
So I can only hope that they've given him a lengthy action sequence in Wolverine, if only to get him more recognised by the mainstream which could then lead to some bigger films.
Kudos to the director of Undisputed 2 also, for I haven't seen fight sequences of that quality for many years now. If you're a fight fan I recommend checking it out!

I don't mind the look of Creed although maybe Liev could have beefed up more and been made to stand taller than Wolverine. Or even some prosthetic work could have been used to make him more physically similar to Tyler Mane considering the character appears radically different in X-Men. Or is he a different character altogether in this movie universe?

I think the issue will be danced around. Creed won't be called Sabertooth in Wolverine according to all involved (see this months Empire) and Sabertooth in X-Men was never referred to as Victor Creed so I'm willing to put money on Lauren Donner or Hugh Jackman saying at some point that they're different characters with really similar abilities. Either that or a Wolverine Part 2 will show a transition from Liev Shreiber's Creed into Tyler Mane's Sabertooth by some bullshit "further mutation" or "outside interference". Plus both Wolverine and Creed/Sabertooth will have their memories wiped so by the time of the first X-Men film's chronology neither character would recognise the other when they butt heads. Solved.

I'm gonna put my neck out here and say that, done right, Wolverine could be the best film of 2009! I've just watched the trailer online and I have to say it looks absolutly amazing. I really can't wait for this one to hit the big screen. Bring it on I say, bring it on.

The more I watch this trailer the better it looks really cant wait for next year. Liev looks very good as Vic Creed but dunno why they did not make him blonde like he is in the comics and first X Men movie

I finally watched the latest trailer and I am highly impress. The first half is excellent music and pacing but the other other is too many money shots.

The whole Wovlerine and Sabertooth being half brothers is confusing. Both having quick regeneration so would their father have it also but juding from the trailer he doesn't?

In the comics isn't Wolverines real name Hewlett and he changes it to Logan as his real father who is some kind of drifter is called Logan?

In the comic Origin it is revealed that Wolverines real name is James Howlett he adopts the name Logan when he runs away , at one point in the Wolverine comic Shield claim that Sabretooth is Wolvies father but that later turns out to be incorrect . From the trailer looks like they ae sticking to the Origin comic to start of with but Im not really sure about Logan choosing to enter the Weapon X program and have the Adamantium  inplanted , in the Weapon X comic he is drugged and forced to have it implanted , but then again Stryker in the comic is very different from the movie version and has nothing to do with Weapon X at all , in the comic Stryker is a evangelical Preacher who belives that Mutants and Demons

This is going to be the best X-Men film ever, it's true that X2 was really good, and X-Men was a good starter film for the trilogy, but then popped up The Last Stand, which truly sucked! The idea of having some of the newer students like Shadowcat (Kitty) was good and having the hairy blue man Beast was great, with villains like Phoenix, Juggernaugt and Multiple-Man kinda sucked! When I heard Juggernaugt was in it I got hyped! But he was hardly in it!

Origins will be the best X-Men film to come!

Seems reasonable enough. I think if people already believe this film is in trouble then the reshoots will further convince, despite Hugh's message.

However many films of this type undergo reshoots/additional filming after the initial photography. Bryan Singer had to undertake some on X2 in England to get Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman together because of scheduling (the epilogue scene where they and Cyclops discuss Jeans "death") so the Wolverine reshoots could have been planned ages ago.

I think whatever problems reported have been blown out of proportion as, let's be honest, it's not been an Apocalypse Now style shoot has it? All that's likely to have happened is creative differences between Gavin Hood and Fox/the producers. That isn't rare as many Fox haters will be quick to point out, the studio seems to have a habit of micro-managing the films so it's hardly unexpected if the director gets pissed off.

the fact that ryan reynolds popped up in this trailer says it all really,
i hope it's good and it looks marginally better than X3 did from that trailer,
but i've yet to see him in anything near half-decent.

also, gambit should've been left out for something better!
