Sure, we're all wrapped up in Watchmen mania leading up to that film's release this weekend, but let's not forget that X-Men Origins: Wolverine is but months away! Head over to MTV.com to watch the brand-new trailer.
What do I think? I'm hopeful. Wolverine's got a pretty cool backstory (I love the Civil War clip in this trailer) and this film—directed by Gavin Hood—looks pretty badass. However, this prequel to Bryan Singer's X-Men seems to be getting a little crowded. Not only does it look like Cyclops has been shoehorned into the story, but it seems like they've taken certain liberties with the Deadpool character that could turn a lot of fans against this movie before it even comes out. But, then again, it just wouldn't be a comic book adaptation if it wasn't preceded by massive amounts of fanboy griping and Internet speculation. That's just how we geeks roll.
Wolverine claws its way into theaters May 1.
