Behold! Wolverine storming the beaches of Omaha or Normandy or one of those during World War II while chomping on a cigar and sporting some serious sideburns! Behold! Wolverine and his archnemesis Creed, who may or may not be his daddy or step-brother or doppelganger from another dimension, depending on what version of the Wolverine comic books you last read, engaging in the deadliest of the stare downs! Yup, it’s more images from the upcoming Fox movie “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, detailing — well duh — the origins of everyone’s favorite feral mutant, played by Hugh Jackman, with Liev Schrieber playing Victor Creed, the man who would one day become Sabretooth. Let’s hope the movie explains why Sabretooth eventually becomes a growling, dimwitted lackey in the previous “X-Men” movies. One can only hope.
Wolverine lives a mutant life, seeks revenge against Victor Creed (who will later become Sabertooth) for the death of his girlfriend, and ultimately ends up going through the mutant Weapon X program.
Starring Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, Liev Schreiber, Dominic Monaghan, Lynn Collins, Danny Huston, Daniel Henney, Taylor Kitsch, Kevin Durand, Scott Adkins, Will i Am, and directed by Gavin Hood.
