It is just over a month until Wolverine slashes his way onto our screens, and we now have some exciting character shots to check out his co-stars Gambit (played by Taylor Kitsch) William Stryker (Danny Huston) and Agent Zero (Daniel Henney).

Following Wolverine's chequered past - prior to his time with the X-Men - we see his complex relationship with Victor Creed (played by Liev Schreiber), and his encounters with various mutants and involvement with the Weapon X program.

RE: Looks Shite
Well, i guess there really is no accounting for taste! I thought (like most people) That Tsotsi was a great movie. And aside from a few niggles i think Wolverine looks pretty good too More

Danny Houston
The only problem I have with Danny Houston is that he bears a striking resembelance to Neil Tenant of the Pet Shop Boys which makes him playing villians less than menacing , which is what I kept thinking when watching 30 days of night which kind ofdestroyed the bad ass vampire he was going for .

sigh...
this does look rather craptastic! i am eager to see kitsch as gambit so I'll suffer through what looks to be a 3 hour epic with lots of opera laced fight scenes. did they do enough leaping and lunging in the trailer!??! I could've played a drinking game for everytime someone leaped in the air!! More

Looks Shite
I am a big X Men fan, but must say this looks shite!! And it all comes down to the choice of director - Gavin Hood who's last (and only) credit is Totsy - a really crap South African movie. So why the fuck was he chosen?? Brian Singer - Bret Rattner - Gavin Hood??? No sense. More

Trailer has me worried too...
I love me some Wolvie... but the trailer does look dodge. As pete_traynor said, cheap. And yeah, too many friggin' mutants. I think that Jackman/Logan will be great, but he'll be lost in a sea of unnecessary characters and too much plot. More

As Obi-Wan would say:
"I have a bad feeling about this". What originally was supposed to be an intriguing origin story (keeping int style with the graphic novel Origin) has now become an over-bloated prequel. To top things off it has become something of an improbable mutant fest; I can understand the presence of Sabretooth and Deadpool, but Gambit, the Blob, Emma Frost AND a young Cyclops? Not a good idea... More
