Watch Out Nazis, it’s Wolverine World War II Set Pics

21 Comments

Man, that Wolverine guy ages really, really well for being part of the Greatest Generation. We’ve already seen Wolverine in Vietnam during the Vietnam War, and now here he is (in the guise of Hugh Jackman) on a beach in full World War II gear. He didn’t take part in the invasion of Normandy, did he? “Saving Private Wolverine”, perhaps? Anyways, check out these latest pics from the set of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”, starring Hugh Jackman as the never-say-die (or die, actually) clawed one.

Since Wolverine aka Logan is Canadian, I’m guessing he’s with a Canadian regiment during World War II? I don’t really recognize the insignia on the men’s uniforms…

“X-Men Origins: Wolverine” stars Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, the Canadian mutant superhero character spun-off from the “X-Men” films, and chronicles his life and times throughout history’s major events, including his eventually becoming Weapon X.

    1st off, would this movie sell to a US audience if Wolverine was in a Canadian regiment? More then likely not. Americans know about Omaha and probably a lesser extent Utah beach, but many were unaware of the British/Canadian contributions liberating Juno, Sword and Gold Beaches. Those battles were just as if not more bloody then the ones the US forces faced that fateful day as well.

    For the “nerds” that might get pissed off that he served with a US unit and not a Canadian unit..

    You did have Canadian and Americans serving in the same battions during WWII, The famous “Devils Brigade”.

    From Wikipedia:

    Properly designated as the 1st Special Service Force, The Devil’s Brigade was a joint World War II American-Canadian commando unit organised in 1942 and trained at Fort Harrison near Helena, Montana in the United States. The brigade fought in the Aleutian Islands, the Italian Campaign, and southern France before being disbanded in December, 1944. Many modern American and Canadian Special Forces units trace their heritage to this unit.

    Also, many thousands of Americans joined the Canadian Military to fight the Nazis pre Pearl Harbour, when the US was still “Neutral”.

    Besides, this is just a movie.. We Know Logan’s Canadian.. that’s allready established. What’s the big deal?

    Let’s just enjoy it in the meantime!

    Who cares if he is wearing US or Canadian insignia. For some reason I can remember reading an comic where Logan rescues a boy from the Nazis. Then when I saw the first X-MEN movie and Magneto it kind of reminded me of the pics from the comic. Am I just not remembering correctly, or could the boy have been Magneto and Wolverine saved one of his future enemys.
