The Wolverine – Trailer

Wolverine faces ninjas and his own mortality in this trailer, and it looks to be a lot more serious and grittier then the previous Wolverine movies. I like where this is going and Wolverine is a bad ass in this one, for once it feels like this is it’s own movie with no tie to the X-Men. It’s when he went to Japan from the original comic series but not sure whats going on with that story line in the movie all I know is that I’m going to like it.

Review: Wolverine Anime

Plot Summary: Next in the four-part Marvel Anime project and broadcasts after the Iron Man anime. Wolverine is a mutant, possessing animal-keen senses, enhanced psychical capabilities, three retracting bone claws on each hand and a healing factor that allows him to recover from virtually any wound, disease or toxin at a accelerated rate.

The anime versions of the Marvel Universe keep getting better and better, this time around Wolverine is a bad ass fighting off a part of the criminal world. There was a nice cameo of Cyclops half way through the anime. Its interesting to see the world of mutants through the eyes of Anime, its not the big struggle like it is with American animation but the story goes deep into Wolverine’s past in Japan, and you jump right into it, the story gets more twisted towards the end and lets hope for some more episodes of Wolverine. Its an action packed anime with story getting better and better, I think that the Iron Man Anime was better but this was damn good, and I can’t wait to see the X-Men anime.

Wolverine’s ABC

Now this is a way to get your kids hooked on Wolverine and Marvel comics at an early age, you have the tools to teach them their ABCs.Sean Gordon Murphy, a comic book artist, took it upon himself to recreate the alphabet based on Wolverine and the whole Marvel Universe. Its not what I usually like from comic book art but some of them are pretty good. My Favorites are E, F, K, V, and Z from the list.

Review: Wolverine – X-Men Origins

I have been waiting months for this movie, I didn’t want to see that version that was leaked or a censored version so I waited and it was worth the wait. Seeing the adamantium fused into the bones of Wolverine and taking the new life of an X-Men got me worked up. Overall this movie was worth the wait, and I think Gambit was depicted perfectly as the character in the comic books. The storyline develops perfectly and the battle between Wolverine and Striker unravels towards the end in a perfect way, I really liked how the story was developed and we got to see the other characters who will later turn into the X-Men.

Marvel And Madhouse Announce Anime Adaptations of Wolverine And Ironman

How cool is that, they are making Anime versions of Wolverine and Ironman. I honestly think that Anime is a lot more complex and artist then all kinds of western animation and now so does Marvel. And based on the previews in the youtube trailers I think they look pretty damn good. They have added a much needed darker appeal to these characters and it will be released in spring of 2010. Looks like Madhouse did an amazing job with these anime adaptations just based on the trailers of Ironman and Wolverine, I really can’t wait to see this.

Ironman. The dogfights look amazing and as expected from Madhouse the animation quality is top notch. Ironman himself though… I can see how they wanted him to look more like a shiny mecha but all I can think about is that someone took an Ironman sketch and applied the Plastic Wrap effect in Photoshop to it. The villian though, that’s a whole other story! He’s part Captain Harlock, part The Major from Hellsing and all kinds of awesome.

Wolverine really hit close to home. I’ve never been a Wolverine fan but this reimagining of the character as a Japanese badass is an instant hit. The mood is a lot grittier and thicker than the american version and will remind you a lot of classic samurai anime films, specially Ninja Scroll.
