Egads! Another Wolverine Origins Trailer Focuses On Characters

This is almost like a mutant confessional video.

This trailer is pretty dang cheesey.  But after watching it a second time, I kind of like it.  It totally reminds me of a commercial that I just can't recall what product it was for.  The whole, "I'm a mutant..." part.  Anybody have a clue what I'm talking about?  It's also a little weird that for as much as Wade Wilson/Deadpool should be blabbing on and on, he really doesn't talk much in the trailers.  There was that one where he mentioned loving his job since he gets to travel around and kill people.  Maybe they're saving all his non-stop chatter for the actual movie.

What do you think of this trailer?

  

And since this trailer focuses on the individual characters, I also came across what may be proving my last post to be innacurate about the "final" Wolverine poster the other day.  IESB has posted five generic looking individual posters.  Has anyone seen these in theaters?  They look almost fake since the credits are blurry.  The images are also ones that we've seen on the other posters.  What movie theater is going to fill up all their poster space with these ho-hum posters?  Click on each to enlarge, if you so desire.

I think the promotional department of the studio gets paid by the hour.

This is going to come across as incredibly trivial, but why is Emma wearing black? Even in the New X-Men comics post-X-Men 2000, Emma still wears white. She kinda reminds me of Hayden Panettiere from Heroes...

You know I hope deadpool actually talks in the movie cause otherwise its just gonna be way off. This trailer reminds me of those cheesy commercials from the the 90's about being drug free or something. "I'm drug free are you?"

yeah...not really feeling it

I like this new trailer, it explains that this movie is more than a comic or action film
=]
and plus it features Emma Frost which totally rocks!

I don't know why they did this, because i've seent his movie and the characters (apart from Wolverine) have very mininal roles in the movie, being in 2 or 3 scenes, if that.

Mehhhh

Lol. This movie better at least be decent with all this hype or I will be pissed.

Posted by Elixir95

Yeah, why is Emma in black, and why does she seem so modest and innocent?  Where's the suave confident, dry witted, money flouncing, all powerful Emma most of us adore.

At least it looks as if she has a bigger role than I thought she previously had.

if they got paid by the hour you'd think they'd put a lot of thought into it so it'd take more hours of thinking time = more money...I'm guessing its a salary so they tossed a bunch of crap together, called it a day and picked up their paycheck

Ya know what i actually like this trailer among the others since its not spoiling much, hell if u werent comic geeks you wouldnt know who half the people in the trailer were.

I personally liked how they included Fred Dukes (aka DA BLOB) in the trailer.

Very nice

what the HECK is up with Emma? I agree with those above - why isn't she wearing white? and why is she so .. modest?! quoting a user above, why isn't she suave, confident, dry witted, money flouncing, all powerfu?! I'm kinda nervous .. I was so excited for the normal Emma, but this is kind of letting me down.

Posted by Darkchild

  • Prisoners don't get to choose what they wear.
  • She hasn't bought her body yet.
  • Emma was a shy and meek girl in her origin, she didn't come out of the womb with a martini glass and stilettos.

Neither is Juggernaut but they changed that as well.
Posted by Abnormally Warm Guy

The difference between them changing Deadpool  to being a mutant and them doing the same for Juggernaut is that Deadpool not being a mutant has been brought up numerous times in his past. He secretly wants to be a mutant like it's some sort of club or something. Juggernaut doesn't care that he's not a mutant. The bigger change there is that he's not even related to Xavier in the movies. LAME!

Kinda funny...

John Wraith/kestrel

Posted by Sherwulf

tha was kick ass

Edited by Skellex

The black guy is John Wraith (Kestrel)
Emma is really sucky in this movie...she barely has any lines.
And he's not know as Deadpool in the movie :( At the start they just call him Wade Wilson, but at the end Stryker refers to him as 'The Pool' nothing more. But :D Ryan Reynolds done an excellent job at the start...I'm quite glad it's Scott Adkins in the end and not Reynolds.

Anybody else think that having the X on the backgroung is kind of wrong... since they aren´t X-Men!

I don't even like Deadpool,but I am anxious to see how Ryan Reynolds portrays him.If it's anything like the Deadpool from the Hulk vs. Wolverine movie..that would be great.

Posted by Bathory1313

I'm curious if anyone else caught that Blob doesn't  uhm look fat?

HE looks more muscular.. like they used Juggernaut's muscle outfit from X3

Posted by Lord's Angel

I wonder if they thought  that most people don't know who these characters are....and how cool they are....so the focus is on them.
