"I Can End Your Eternity!" - Hugh Jackman Looses His Cool in new Wolverine trailer
I'm a James Mangold fan. Cop Land is genuinely great, I really enjoyed his 3:10 To Yuma remake, and I have a serious weirdo crush on Knight and Day. He might not have sprung to my mind when he was announced as the director for The Wolverine, but suddenly I had hopes for a character that's never been treated properly in the movies (and rarely in the comics). Watching the below trailer I can say that there are a couple of images I dig, but the general idea stolen from Superman II of sadsack Logan loosing his healing factor bums me out. No one want to see a "normal" Wolverine and I certainly don't want to see the predictable shenanigans this manufactured drama is going to put his character through. The Silver Samurai is certainly a good foe to spar against, but what's with his transformer movements? Hmmmmm....I can feel the gripes coming. And I hate that. I feel like Star Trek Into Darkness has put me in a grumpy hater mood. Need to shake that shit off right now. So I'm gonna plop down my dollars and hope for the best, but I'm also not holding my breath - it's gotta be better than Origins, right?
