Comic Book Question of the Week: 3/26/13 - Who Do You Want in 'The Wolverine?'

Posted by k4tzm4n (48476 posts) - - Show Bio

We're being bombarded with new bits of information about The Wolverine this week, so it only seems logical to make the 'Comic Book Question of the Week' about the film, too! Many of us still have a bad taste in our mouths after 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but Fox seems to have learned from their mistakes. It's time to go big or go home when it comes to comic book movies and luckily the studio seems to recognize that.

This week, we've seen bits and pieces of the film and we're going to get the first full trailer on Wednesday (how appropriate for new comic book day). Highlights included a glimpse of Jean Grey (could it simply be a flashback or something more?) and a first look at Silver Samurai's awesometastic armor.

We know the film will be packed with other characters including Viper, Lord Shingen and Mariko Yashida, but it's always possible other characters from the Marvel universe could appear -- and that, friends, is our question for you this week. We've selected ten characters and want to know which one you'd like to see the most in Logan's second solo film. Do you want to see Deadpool (you know, the real one) show his hideous face or would you rather see Cyclops make a miraculous return?

Ellen Page as a ninja came to mind.

I'd love to see Sunfire get some screen time

I'd love an awesome fight against the Silver Samurai. I hope that's not Jean. :/

Rogue.

@redhood21: What are you talking about? As Wolverine? I would literally puke. His height is closer, but Wolverine is suppose to have hair. At least Hugh is a good actor.

Eye Scream...

this new layout is hurting my eyes. too "cool" for my tastes.

would love to see jubilee since she never got any real time plus her powers are cool and her one liners are awesome

Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing another appearance by Sabertooth (In a flashback or something). I like how he's always a thorn in Wolvie's side.

I'd love to see Psylocke. But in her new Uncanny X-Force uniform and not the single piece bathing suit.

#13 Posted by Fetts (4488 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Daken should have some type of reference or cameo.

#14 Posted by MadeinBangladesh (7317 posts) - - Show Bio

PSYLOCKE!!!

#15 Edited by Mieux (359 posts) - - Show Bio

Would love if they could make Psylocke work. Maybe even as the Lady Mandarin.

#16 Posted by GodDamnIronMan (1553 posts) - - Show Bio

Daken please!!!

#17 Edited by TheAmazingImmortalMan (3316 posts) - - Show Bio

Samurai

#19 Edited by BR_Havoc (1331 posts) - - Show Bio

@goddamnironman: I could see it maybe an after credit scene were we see Daken as a baby?

#20 Posted by k4tzm4n (48476 posts) - - Show Bio

WEAPON XI!

It just better not suck balls like X-Men origins: Wolverine.

I second this notion.

Sunfire would be amazing, he's always that X-Man who everyone, writers and fans alike seem to completely forget about. Even with his cousin Silver Samurai in the film, I don't know if we can count on Sunfire. I can't think of any other characters other than Sunfire, Lady Hydra and Silver Samurai that I both care about and think would make sense as part of this film though.

#24 Posted by slimlim (266 posts) - - Show Bio

Cyclops would be a helluva surprise. But possibly as an after credits teaser for XM:DOFP. The REAL Deadpool would be cool too.

#25 Posted by TheHeat (452 posts) - - Show Bio

Deadpool. Psylocke would be cool as well, but she did die in X-Men: The Last Stand.

#26 Posted by SexualLobster (995 posts) - - Show Bio

Daken or Sunfire.

#27 Edited by Cypher4 (74 posts) - - Show Bio

Wait, so is this movie supposed to take place after X3? I assumed it was in between X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men. I haven't read much about the movie yet.

#28 Posted by PATTX (64 posts) - - Show Bio

Sabretooth Deadpool Cyclops and Gambit Cameos or flashbacks and maybe Daken too

#29 Posted by Bad_People (163 posts) - - Show Bio

A better movie that X-Men Origins.

#30 Posted by Vincent_Valjean (49 posts) - - Show Bio

Definitely Romulus!

I would love to see an intro or mention to Daken but mostly I'd like the movie actually relate to the comic storylines because as we have seen the abominations the films have tried to pass off is just garbage.

#33 Edited by Chibi-Iroh (388 posts) - - Show Bio

I really dont want any useless appearances just for the sake of fan service. However mention or at least allusion to Daken would be pretty interesting.

#34 Edited by nxt174 (15 posts) - - Show Bio

a build up for draken in the next film

I REALLY want to see Daken or Romulus

#41 Edited by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

Deadpool.

#42 Posted by hellogan (55 posts) - - Show Bio

My first thought was a cameo by the Incredible Hulk since he's the one that gave Wolverine his training wheels. I also like Logan's interaction with Rogue however, I don't believe Rogue so far has been portrayed very well in the movies so far. I don't really see her as a gentle cowering touchy feelly person like she's been portrayed. Reading the comics growing up she always seemed to me like a firey, sexy, southern bell. That knows how to throw down with the best of them like Thor. I'd also like to see Baron Karza appear in a live action movie.

Honestly, Gorgon. However, I'm almost certain that's not happening :(

I laugh at thine's disappointment. It's like someone just Daredevil kicked your dreams unconscious. Trololol.
