I think we can all freely admit that 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine was not good; not good at all. Why 20th Century Fox decided to make a sequel is beyond me (and almost everyone, I think). Suffice it to say, they did.
We’ve been hearing reports since the early stages of this production that The Wolverine, the brief and simple title of the sequel, would be much better than its predecessor. Most were excited about the prospect of award winning director, Darron Aronofsky being attached to the project; but that quickly fell through. Then Fox brought in James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma, Walk the Line) to take Aronofsky’s place. This, I presume, we could deal with; though again, it was still hard to imagine it being a good movie.
Well, the first trailer has just hit the internet, and I must say: it doesn’t look too bad. In fact, it I think it looks pretty darn good (it even seems to have an actual plot). Check it out:
