X-Men Origins Wolverine Pics
New character shots online

05 March 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: USA Today

It's a big day for those of us looking forward to X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Not only is the trailer (at least the proper, full-size trailer) due later today, but there are six rather spiffing new character shots on USA Today to tide you over.

These pictures show Wolvie himself (Hugh "I've sung with Beyonce, y'know" Jackman); Victor Creed (Liev "Spellcheck Nemesis" Schreiber); Kayla Silverfox (Lynn "married to that dude from 10,000BC" Collins); Gambit (Taylor "Friday Night Lights" Kitsch); Deadpool (Ryan "My wife is hotter than your wife" Reynolds) and John Wraith (Will.i.am, whose name has no room for interruptions).

Click the image above to view all the character images on USAToday.com

The film is out here on April 29, but we'll be back later today with the full second trailer.

RE:
Went to see Watchmen on Saturday and the Wolverine trailer played before as did the new Trek one but i have to say the 'geeks' seemed to react more to the Wolverine one more than the Trek one .... and then most of them fainted when Watchmen started ... just too much in one afternoon ..methinks .

Cool
I'm a HUUUUUUGGGGGE Wolverine fan and I cannot bloody wait to see this film It looks the dog's danglies... I doubt they'd change Deadpool too much. Not if they want to spin him off into his own movie. He needs to be somewhat recognizable to his fans. I think the images of the pale dude with Wolverines claws and Cyclops' eye beams will be a genetic pick n' mix who will be Weapon XI (11). Whether that's Wade Wilson or not isn't important, because I'm sure by the end of the movie they'll leave Dead More

cartoon fan
I grew up as a kid watching the x-men cartoons on telly and it's one of my favourite shows cartoon or otherwise. Plus as a kid born in the 80's and growing up with the likes of Back to the Future (where I fancied Michael J. Fox) and T1 and T2 (where I fancied Edward Furlong) the third guy I had the hots for was Gambit! I'm just plain happy that the coolest dude is finally in the films. I have my reservations though - the 1st x-men movie was good, 2nd was better and the 3rd was ... ... ... More

RE: Re: Markasmarv
L: markasmarv OOh a toy! You can clearly see for yourself if you pause the trailer that that dude with the claws is not Ryan Reynolds...and even if by some miracle it is, fanboys are still pedantic miserable cunts regardless! sp; Ok MTV says its not Deadpool, have a cookie. Still object to you coming on here, shouting the odds. Don't want to sound like an old fart (your actually older then me - act like it maybe?) but calling everyone who disagrees with you 'miserable cunts' just sort More

I had high hopes for this after Last Stand, but to be honest im a little dissapointed now. My favourite X-Man was always gambit and i waited patiently for his apppearance throughout three films, but after seeing this im not so sure now. More

MTV Splash page artical: Early shots of Reynolds in action as Deadpool only added to fans’ fears that the movie character would diverge from his print counterpart in this aspect. However, images of one of the action figures in the upcoming line of “Wolverine” movie toys opened the Deadpool discussion once again, as a strange-looking figure appeared on shelves labeled as “Deadpool” on its packaging. Naturally, this ignited speculation that the bizarre figure More

Hmmm
I want to like this, I do, but it just looks rubbish. I am a big X-men fan, and didn't think that X-men 3 was that bad, not as good as the first 2, but not bad. This however, will be terrible by the look of it so far. The trailer sucks, Emma Frost looks like a disco ball, Deadpool looks too wimpy, Creed has shorter fingernails than some women, and there are so many nearly-indestructible mutants that they won't kill off, I'm worried it will be a bit predictable too, with the new ones being the on More

wtf
can't believe that is deadpool???!!! that blows!!! I didn't realise Cyclops was in the story so much, obviously I havent seen the film so I could be barking up the wrong tree but why then did he not recognise him when he turned up in Xmen???   Oh and whats that thing chasing him through school??? and why is my monitor so poo that I can't see anything properly??? and why has my office run out of tea bags???

Sabrecrud
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Liev Schreiber but does anyone else think Sabretooth looks cack? I mean what is with those crud claws. How the hell can you take him seriously against Wolverine's blades? At least Tyler Mane had the hulking size. It all looks a bit rubbish to me. More

RE: X-Men Origins Wolverine Pics
Well it turns out that that 'thing' with the claws, lazer sight, no mouth, tattoos etc is a disfigured Deadpool. Yes Fox have totally screwed over one of my fav characters. It was confirmed by the newly released toys from the film. This thing is deadpool. :( More

Departing from the source too much
I think the albino that Seamie mentions may be the movie's take on Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds' character. As a fan of Deadpool, I'm a little concerned that the film-makers have moved too far away from the source materials, but in fairness all we have seen so far is some fast-cut images with no context. I'll reserve judgement for now. J More

The new trailer...
...looks ok. Im a little worried about the weird albino looking mutant who seems to have a lot of abilities....one claw, cyclops like laser eye vision, possible adamantium skeleton etc. Hopefully he's not a Sylar type:( Also, what the hell is Cyclops doing in it?? I'll still be first in line though, i'm a sucker for anything X-Men. More
