First Wolverine TV spot goes online

Outcasts is here…

20th Century Fox has decided the next step in its Wolverine advertising onslaught a TV spot experiment.

The studio is planting three “narrative” TV spots, which, when watched together, help give us all more information about Logan’s life story as seen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

All three are apparently scheduled to arrive officially online on Tuesday, but thanks to the power of the inter-tubes, the first one (which aired last night across the pond) is already online.


We’ll throw up links to the others and offer full coverage of the official releases when they finally arrive, but for now watch below and enjoy “outcasts”, which digs into Logan’s tragic past…

      Are we supposed to believe that he (luckily) had adamantium claws all along? Or is that (hopefully) just a trick of his own subconscious imagination while he's under the knife? (and if so, I wonder what REALLY happened that night?) Looking forward to this film! Even if it IS probably going to be lame. (Too Many Superhero Films!)

      They look like bone, not adamantium (presumably they were grafted with adamantium along with the rest of his skeleton during the procedure), but the fact that he had any kind of claws before the procedure is news to me too.

      Yeah it's been well-established in the comics in recent years that he had bone claws long before Weapon X. The first film suggested through scans that they were all adamantium, but a small continuity error is perfectly permissible if they're moving closer to the comics. Especially the rather excellent GN "Origin" on which this film looks to be most based.

      Well i know that adamantium is the hardest (fictional) metal in the world so it is plausible that it could block out bone structures in a scan. And that definitely shows bone claws at the beginning so they are going with the comics, which means he will have heightened senses, healing properties and bone claws beore the Weapon X programme.
