    IUH is right. I would even argue comics have a far less margin for error than even a novel does. With a comic, the storyboard is basically in front of the director. Novels take a little more imagination, but please the aesthetic synapses less than say the Jim Lee brand of female Marvel characters.

      It's fine if a movie changes aspects from the comic books if it does it right, but Wolverine just sucked. Plain and simple.

        Well, I do, and I did. Sorry. It's the same way I was able to enjoy Robert Zemeckis' Beowulf adaptation and FF Copolla's Dracula adaptation, because I wasn't comparing them to the beloved source material.

          IT SUCKED.

          If you read comic books, sucky comic book adaptations aren't things you can just "lower your expectations for."

            Insert: You're not wrong. Wolverine could have been an interesting movie because he's one of the most interesting characters Marvel has. It was clear however from the first trailer that it wasn't going to be a great character film, but a cheesy action flick, so I was able to adjust my expectations accordingly and mildly enjoy it as a result. Was it a good movie? Nope, but it was entertaining and there were things about it I liked.

                  @Josh: Who said Wolverine was made to watch sh*t get blown up? No one...except you. Wolverine should have been an intelligent and gritty origin film. Instead, we got a summer sh*t fest filled with unneeded characters and bad CGI. In fact, I haven't come across a comic book movie yet that's sole purpose is to "blow sh*t up" because that's not the purpose of comic books...so it shouldn't be the purpose of their adaptations. Of course our expectations were high...we were expecting a GOOD movie...and it wasn't even that. You want explosions, watch a Michael Bay film.

                    Btw you guys, you don't need to tell us how much you don't want to see the sequel and then go on to tell us about Origins as if we didn't see it and don't know it wasn't great. You're kinda kicking a dead horse here. You could just simply shut the f*ck up since we already know, or you can bitch when you see the trailer for the sequel. Either option sounds pretty fair don't you think?

                      Could you get a cooler guy to randomly give us movie updates? Nope. lol.

                        You guys have your expectations too high. Sometimes a superhero film is just there so you can watch sh*t blow up.

                          X-Men Origins: Wolverine ...Hugh Jackman gives his all, he can't help X-Men Origins: Wolverine overcome a cliche-ridden script and familiar narrative

                              I now understand why they want a part two. They still have to 'face/off' (Wade and Logan), but why in Japan? What's in Japan? That's what we are going to find out. The first movie was not so bad. And I was intrigued of the "Adamantium". Why this mineral is not the one used in Fox's other movie Avatar, instead favored to "Unobtanium" of Paramount's The Core? Well, anyways, this W-2 is a waiting!

                                Watchmen is a better movie. But you make good points. I don't even expect to actually see an Alpha Flight movie because they don't have the fan following of other characters. It was just my Canadian-ness talking.

                                    Great actor but f*ck Wolverine 2. The first one sunk the series into a pit of death people get on x-3's ass all the time but at least that was a decent popcorn blockbuster. Wolverine was a huge step down into McG/Paul WS Anderson style sh*tty action films. It was as inaccurate as you can make a comic book film and if you are going to call it X-Men ORIGINS then tell the f*cking origin through the movie not in an opening credits montage. The movie should've been called Wolverine looks for Sabretooth and bumps into random mutants along the way. Needless to say i'm not happy at all about this.

                                        I wanna see the origins of Magneto. We've had enough Wolverine, so why can't we see Magneto before we see a sequal.
