Wolverine is back, baby! Hugh Jackman returns in this origin story for Marvel's favorite character, which lies in the purgatory between X3's abject awfulness and X-Men First Class's complete series reboot. Pulling from the Origins comic, the film completely kajiggers Wolverine's story to make him the hero of and reason for the creation of the X-Men. It also introduces a bunch of new characters (Gambit, Deadpool kind of, The Blob, Silverfox) and does next to nothing with them. At least there are no holocaust scenes (but Wolverine does fight in D-Day).
Listen in as Chris and I discuss Gambit's identity crisis, Stryker's cyclical and nonsensical plan, and Master Mold in an oversized trenchcoat and fedora.
