I was pretty disappointed by X-Men Origins: Wolverine it was a mess of a film with mutant guest stars thrown in at random and a pretty thin plot line. I had high hopes when I heard that visionary director Darren Aranofsky was going to be helming the second solo Wolverine film, but he later dropped out. James Mangold took over the reins and now I am not sure what to expect. The good news is that The Wolverine appears to be based on the classic mini-series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. The trailer didn't knock my socks off, but it didn't have anything that looked off to me either. I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised, and we will finally see the Wolverine film we were hoping for the last time out.
