New ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ Character Images
  |  @   |  

A new batch of pictures for the X-Men spin-off — X-Men Origins: Wolverine have been unveiled on USA Today. The pictures offer some new looks at some of the main mutants of the movie with a nice foggy/cloudy little backdrop. They almost look like they could each be their own poster or magazine cover.

The lineup includes a new shot of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth, Lynn Collins as Silverfox, Taylor Kitsch as Gambit, Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, and Will.i.am as Kestrel.

Along with the new images, Hugh Jackman spoke to USA Today a little bit about the part of Wolverine and his vision of it.

Jackman first shared his disliking of the way the character of Wolverine was handled over time:

I’m not mad about it, but I thought he had gotten a bit soft. I thought we had gotten away from the essence of who Wolverine really is: a bad (dude) who wants to live his own life.

He then says “This is the movie I’ve seen in my head for a long time” in regards to his producing the movie and steering it more to his liking, more to how he sees Wolverine.

The character has always reminded me of Dirty Harry or Han Solo. He’s a good guy, not a nice guy. He’s got a lot of flaws, which I think is what people find so attractive about him and the X-Men. He’s struggling with who he is and what he wants. He was one of the comics’ first anti-heroes.
