Let’s face it, Wolverine’s biggest draw are those claws. Without them, he’d be like the Beatles without Lennon, Butch without Sundance, or The View without Rosie. It just ain’t right! So of course, every promo image from the upcoming “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” will feature the feral Canucklehead and those claws of his, such as the one below. Wow, see how that works? I’m a genius at this stuff.
Leading up to the events of X-Men, X-Men Origins: Wolverine tells the story of Wolverine’s epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe.
Directed by Gavin Hood from a David Benioff, the action-thriller co-stars Liev Schreiber, Ryan Reynolds, Taylor Kitsch, Will.i.am, Danny Huston, Dominic Monaghan, Daniel Henney and Lynn Collins.
The claws come out May 1, 2009.
