Following up on the Gambit post from a week or two ago, the X-Men Origins: Wolverine trailer was released this weekend. It's intriguing-- less plot-driven and more the classic action film than some of the other recent Marvel adaptations, perhaps, but with a top-notch cast and (if this trailer's any indication) a tone that echoes those great government conspiracy films of the mid-70s (the period, in fact, during which the Wolverine character made his comics debut). And Hugh Jackman looks and feels much more like Len Wein and Chris Claremont's classic character here than he did in any of the X-Men films.
