First Glance: Wolverine Shots

by Irma Arkus

Wolverine, a long awaited spin-off from X-Men film franchise, is nearing completion, and the first shots of the film are here!

“X-Men Origins: Wolverine” is aimed for a May 1st, 2009 release. Directed by Gavin Hood (Rendition, Tsotsi), the story focuses on origins of Logan aka Wolverine, played by Hugh Jackman. Moreover, we get to see the budding relationship between Wolverine and Victor Creed, better known as Sabretooth, played by Liev Schreiber.

Rumours are flying that there are actually 3 films planned for the Wolverine storyline, as Logan morphs from soldier to mutant with bad memory. Even though Wolverine was supposed to be joined by Storm, as the two spin-off vehicles from X-Men, there have been no substantial developments on Storm front.
