A Closer Look at The Silver Samurai from ‘The Wolverine’



Over the weekend the 2013 Toy Fair was held and many movie tie in toys were shown off. Among them were action figures for the upcoming film The Wolverine. In this film Wolverine will be having some violent interaction with The Silver Samurai. While his look has been changed slightly for the film he is definitely looking both silver and samurai like. This is the clearest look we have gotten of him thus far.

Other Ways Deadpool Could Have Looked in Wolverine: Origins


Here is a video from Amalgamated Dynamics Inc. Showing the various designs they had created for Deadpool in Wolverine:Origins. You can see all the different options for the character along with how off the mark they were for most of them. Deadpool was a dropped ball in a film that was full of Huh? and What? There was some good but a lot of bad and taking the mouth away from The Merch With the Mouth was a big one. That said take a look at the vid and see whatcha think about it all. ADI is a talented studio and I take nothing away from them… just wasn’t Deadpool.

A Look at the Newest Wolverine Comic Book from Marvel


Wolverine already has one solo book coming in The Savage Wolverine. It will see him doing what he does best in the Savage Land. Another new book has been announced today and it will be titled ‘Wolverine’. I like that. It’s simple. I wish more things were called what they are. This title will start up in March and will be written by Paul Cornell with art by Alan Davis.

Cornell had these words to share about this upcoming Wolverine comic:

“This is the action series title where we meet him in his New York context,” said writer Paul Cornell. “With many non-super hero friends (like Claremont always had the X-Men know), part of a community of professionals, a very civilized man of violence who’d prefer to be a man of peace.”

“James is caught up in a hostage situation, which involves a threat to innocents from a very disciplined, ruthless new character, the nature of which we’re only gradually going to reveal. That turns into an action movie chase, where James is highly motivated to stop having to repeat something not very nice he had to do in front of one of said innocents. James is at his best when he’s protecting others. I’ve been a father for four weeks, and I asked myself, which super hero would I hand my baby to? And the answer is James Logan, because he will die before he see that child hurt, and anyone who wants to do so has to get through the Wolverine. This title is about that balance between protector and berserker, between long-lived oddity and regular guy.”
