The Wolverine International trailer arrives
Just after I posted the teaser trailer for The Wolverine the full trailer arrives and it tells an interesting story much along the lines I guessed, Wolverine can be reversed, can become human again, but it's unclear exactly what implications that will have and I have a few ideas myself.
The trailer looks dark, powerful and broody, but there is a seemingly silly scene with Wolverine fighting atop the Japanese Bullet Train, but I'm willing to forgive it if the film doesn't leap into that territory too much.
I won't talk about what I think about the trailer and what I thought about the teaser until after you've had a chance to see the trailer, that way you can decide to duck out if you want to.
First up, here's the official blurb for The Wolverine:
In modern day Japan, Wolverine is out of his depth in an unknown world as he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
Now here's the trailer for The Wolverine:
Okay, now I'm going to talk about it. I said that the teaser suggested that Wolverine was going to be made mortal and what had been done to him reversed and that's what the main trailer is pointing to, but the interesting thing is how the person who reverses that is being portrayed.
He is shown as a good guy, offering Wolverine thanks for saving him when he was younger, but I think he might be the opposite. What are the chances that he's actually there to steal the regenerative powers of Wolverine for himself to stay young forever? Once he's done that he becomes the bad guy and Wolverine has to fight against him and at some point take back the regenerative powers to defeat him?
The trailer has lots to offer and it's unclear which scenes are pre and post power loss but it is looking good so far. I wonder though if the Bullet Train scene is a little too much?
