Six "Wolverine" Character Promo Shots

Posted: March 5th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Six "Wolverine" Character Promo ShotsSubmit Comment
USA Today released six promo shots from the upcoming "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," featuring a look at Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber), Silverfox (Lynn Collins), Gambit (Taylor Kitsch), Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) and Kestrel (Will i am). In addition, there is a description of each character and a quote about them by Jackman.

Sabretooth/Victor Creed: Like Wolverine, Sabretooth can quickly heal from virtually any would, including gunshots, slashes, puncture wounds and severe burns. And like any good cat, he has acute senses of sight, hearing, smell and taste - the better to track prey. (Jackman: "They were close in the beginning, but they begin to drift apart. He's like the brother who shows up every birthday to kick your (butt) to remind you who is boss.")

Kayla Silverfox: Silverfox's only known power is accelerated healing of other mutants. The speed and extend of her healing factor is superior to that of Wolverine and Sabretooth, making her tougher to beat. She is an experienced marksman and skilled at hand-to-hand combat - which she never uses on Wolverine. (Jackman: "She has a tragic romance with Wolverine. It's that romance that really puts the story into motion.")

Gambit/Remmy Etienne LeBeau: Gambit has explosive powers, literally. The mutant can take, for instance, a playing card, charge it with kinetic energy and cause it to explode on impact. He also has superhuman agility, dexterity - and charm. He has power over the weaker-minded to gently coerce them to believing what he says or agree with what he suggests. (Jackman: "He's such a great character, we've been trying to get him in X0Men since the second movie. He starts off as a pest, but their relationship is a little gray. He's not quite friend of foe.")

Deadpool/Wade Wilson: Deadpool has regenerative powers like Wolverine and Sabretooth, though he uses more high-tech gadgetry than his colleagues. Skilled in hand-to-hand combat and marksmanship, Deadpool has a teleportation device to whisk him out of (and into) trouble, as well as a holographic image inducer to disguise his appearance when necessary. (Jackman: "The action scenes Ryan has with swords are unbelievable. By the end of the movie, they are definitely foes.")

Kestrel/John Wraith: Kestrel is a powerful teleporter, capable of getting his fellow mutants out of sticky situations after their job is finished. He has a penchant for explosives, arming himself with odd-shaped charges. Like the other members of the mutant team, he was given an artificial age suppressant, so he is much older than he look. (Jackman: "He is categorically a friend of Wolverine's. Part of that is because he gets to wear the coolest clothes.")

I loved Jackmans comment about how ('we' have been trying to get gambit involved since the second movie). We? Really? Jackman is a great wolverine, i cant imagine anyone better, BUT, why does he get producer credit? Because his fame has gotten to his head, and he thinks he makes decisions about these films (which unfortunately, he essentially does). Just another example of how big name actors like to get all the screen time and control everything, along with a massive paycheck for it all.

Why not? He's invested a hell of a lot of time into the Wolverine character to make him who he thinks he should be in the film world but trying to stay true to comic origins and fan expectations, course he's gonna have input you dolt! Plus, isn't his company producing or something? As far as jackman being even remotley controlling, over anything, is stupid. He's definatelt got some clout, but ive never heard anything about him being a controller.

Gambit looks weak, man. On the other hand, Slade--oops, I mean WADE Wilson looks alright.
