Wow! Wow! Wow! I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing the trailer for X-Men Origins: Wolverine is! Today, the official MySpace page for the movie released the theatrical trailer, and let me just tell you it’s pretty amazing. I have always been a big X-Men fan, but I guess since the series was over I kind of forgot about it. I knew that this movie was in production but didn’t realize how soon it was coming out in theatres.
Hugh Jackman looks even more ripped and muscular than any of the previous 3 X-Men movies. Just when you thought his biceps couldn’t get any bigger, they do. He really looks animalistic in this movie. The scene where he comes up out of the water and is just looking right in to the camera gave me chills. He looks so ferocious!
As mentioned, I have not been following the production of this film, so it was all surprises for me. I didn’t know which mutants were going to be making a cameo, and was OVERWHELMINGLY excited to see that Gambit has a part in this movie! Not only does he appear in the movie but he seems to have a decent role if they are giving him as much screen time as they have in just the first trailer. Some of the effects of him throwing his ace of diamonds, and the beau are things that we X-Men fans have been waiting to see happen on the big screen for more than 8 years now! Sooo happy Remy has made it in to a movie. I am now wondering if they will have an Origins movie for Gambit, which would be great for all of the fans that were denied his appearance in the previous films.
As I watched through the trailer frame by frame (sad, I know) I was trying to figure out who the girl at the end of the trailer is. Is it Dazzler!? Dazzler had been rumored to be in X-Men 3: The Last Stand, but never made it to the big screen. If Dazzler AND Gambit (2 of my favorite X-Men) make it in to this movie, it could go down as the best X-Men movie ever!!!
Needless to say I am overwhelmed with anticipation for this movie and can not wait for it to come out. I can’t wait to start reading what the X-Men fans out there are saying about this trailer.
UPDATE: After a bit of research that I should have done before I posted, it turns out that the person that I think is Dazzler is actually Emma Frost!!!! EVEN BETTER! Emma Frost (aka White Queen) is also one of my favorite mutants. Here’s what the Wikipedia article says about her powers:
Emma Frost is a mutant psion capable of accessing enormous telepathic abilities. Later, she gained a “secondary mutation” which allows her to transform to an organic diamond form with enhanced strength and durability at the cost of her telepathy.
I think it’s safe to say that’s a diamond form there in the pic! Yay for Emma Frost!
