Fox Releases a New Trailer for X-Men Origins: Wolverine!

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.

It definitely looks allot more complicated now! The early trailer looked very predictable, now all of a sudden I don’t know what to think. Ya know what else I realized? Allot of these wolverine plot lines are newer. And by newer I mean 2002 and on. We don’t seem to be the target audience anymore (1990's marvel fans that is). It seems like they are making these movies for their new found audience. The ones who became interested in comic books after they watched Spiderman on DVD. The ones who are wearing the batman feety pajamas, they are the next generation of fans. And we just have to find a way to keep up!
