Update: Footage can be seen here
Movie geeks and fans who had the chance to go to Comic Con today got a surprise at the end of 20th Century Fox’s presentation, Hugh Jackman! Apparently he had just finished filming and flew over from Australia to show a trailer. It was not complete and the scenes needed more work in post-production, however here is a description:
1:11PM – Full trailer! Scenes with Gambit throwing cards. Stryker comes and asks to put together a “special team” of superheroes. Shows the relationship with Wolverine and Sabertooth together and the development of the team and the adamantium program that Strkyer puts together. Really AWESOME footage! Looks incredible – some good fight scenes, but it still needs a lot of polishing. It almost looked too glossy and too colorful, but this is very early footage. Either way it looked awesome.
Confirmed team members: Blob, Deadpool, Gambit, Wolverine, Sabretooth, and Emma Frost. Lots of action scenes including a moment where Wolverine jumps from a truck to a helicopter and grabs on and attacks it. Younger cast, but very flashy and colorful and great scenes of action. A lot of cool scenes where Wolverine was fighting in the adamantium lab. Fight scenes of Wolverine and Sabretooth where he shoves his claws into Sabretooth’s chest. All-in-all it looked amazing – and I’m not the only one who thought so!
I think the biggest surprise there is that Emma Frost will be in the movie. If Bryan Singer stayed on to direct X-Men 3 he was apparently going to use the character, however that didn’t happen so it seems they have put her in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Emma Frost has displayed the telepathic standards of broadcasting and receiving thoughts, mind control, altering perceptions and memories, offensive blasts of psionic energy…
…Frost developed a secondary mutation: the ability to transform herself into a perfectly smooth, flexible, translucent diamond-like substance.
No word on when the official teaser trailer will be released online. I’d give it a month or two for them to get the money shots finished!
