I was hoping to see him in costume in this final Jackman film,they could even explain it as protection due to his diminished healing factor.I agree,the Johnny Cash version of Hurt is brilliant.

Fairly powerful trailer, but I think I'm reacting more to the Johnny Cash, rather than the movie's content. Logan without the pointy hair and muttonchops isn't Logan. Just some grizzled old guy. 

And...isn't this the same premise of the Jennifer Garner Elektra movie - "retired warrior meets special young girl and has to protect her from enhanced assassins?"

Another board I frequent, which consists of mainly civilians, love this trailer and think this will finally be a superb Wolverine movie. They're super excited about it. 

Of course, they all loved SvB, too...

Like it or not, those are the fans that matter. We fans
of the books, particularly books from "the old days",
are such a small minority that I suspect our percentage
of ticket sales would effectively amount to zero

This is why I complain about the lack of fidelity to source material. And it doesn't apply just to comics. How many people think Dorothy's trip to Oz was a dream? How many think John Rambo survived his violent flashback episode? Or think Robert Neville cured the "zombies"? Or that Forest Gump's love, Jenny, dies?

The list is endless, and it goes back to the very earliest "adaptations." Check out Thomas Edison's version of "Frankenstein"!

Often, laboring under extremely strict censorship rules, Hollywood made changes in order to sanitize the originals. But those sanitized versions are what many people think tell the "real" story. And from the beginning there was a tendency also to make changes "because we can." In his book ADVENTURES IN THE SCREEN TRADE William Goldman describes his process, and that of most other writers in Hollywood, of beginning by looking for what can be changed, not what can be kept.

I didn't know that about Jenny, either.

The I AM LEGEND ending change is the worst, as it completely changes the meaning of the title.

Watch it on disc with the original ending.  Fixes everything.

I don't wanna watch anything that possibly financially benefits Mark Millar.

And I can't seriously believe that there are apparently hordes of people who LOVE X-23 or whatever. 

Ugh.

Double Ugh.

Ugh 23.

How could you not love Wolverine being replaced by a teenage female clone of himself named Laura?

And, if I understand properly, X-23 has a foot claw. Actually, I don't have a problem with that quite so much, because since it's artificial, a clone could get adamantium earlobes.

A clone would have to have genetic engineering tinkering to change gender. And a woman with Wolverine's character traits...? Or is that Jessica Jones? (Watching the Netflix series, never read the books. Or anything with her in it.)

And given my druthers, I'd like a Wolverine solo movie that isn't about his powers, his origin, his specific heartbreaks... hey, how about an adventure that just has Wolverine as the main character, but not the main story? They say that there used to be movies and TV shows about main characters that weren't entirely about the hero. That James Bond fellow, for example.

-----

X-23 was never really a clone in the strictest sense; describing her as
such is just a bit of shorthand. She was created using two copies of
Wolverine's X chromosome. In the real world, they've produced female
mice using the X chromosomes from two males, so in theory, you might
be able to create a female "clone" using the same X.

I haven't watched any of the Wolverine films and this trailer indicates this movie is unlikely to break that streak.

I would expect a female clone of Wolverine to be relatively squat, barrel chested, and thick aka big boned. Comics sez no.

Also, doesn't Wolverine have some kind of mercenary/villain/anti-hero son running around who also has adamantium bones/ claws and a similar outfit? Daken?

Yes, Daken, aka 'Dark Wolverine', is/was Wolverine's mohawked, tattooes, bisexual, illegitimate son.  He had one of his claws come out of his wrist, because, you know, you have to make these copies 'unique'.

I bet Red Wolverine is way cooler than normal Wolverine.

Would Wolverine be able to get tattooed with his healing factor?

...Wolverines? What the ever-loving, all-American, red-white-and-blue FRIG???

Wolverine as introduced as an entirely unique new hero (which seemed to work) with a lot of mysterious traits - but mostly as a pseudo anti-hero (go look that up in your Funk and Wagnalls! :)

Now there are five or six Wolverine characters? What next, the Legion of Super Wolverines?

Gods, Mr. Byrne was right... if this is the result, Wolverine should have been dropped early on.
