News: First Look at the Wolverine Spin-off

USA Today scores the first look at Hugh “Jacked” Jackman in character as Logan a.k.a. Wolverine in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. From Wikipedia: “Set seventeen years before X-Men, the film will focus on Wolverine’s violent past, and his early encounters with William Stryker. The Weapon X program and his interactions with other mutants will be explored, including his complex relationship with Sabretooth/Victor Creed.”

Gavin Hood has been tapped to direct the film. He’s an interesting choice as a director. I liked parts of his Rendition (2007) but not the movie as a whole. Hood can film a great explosion and surrounding sequence so who knows. Hopefully, Wolverine‘s script will be of higher quality than Rendition‘s was. I don’t know about you but I hope we get a Rated-R Wolverine movie and not a PG-13 studio cope out. Let us see the experimentation (the Weapon X program) and Wolverine using his claws on his victims enemies.
