The thing is, X-Men origins: Wolverine X Men Origins: Wolverine may make you question your geekness, but youll still love it is supposed to be a prequel, and the inclusion of many of these characters is something that is making many fans’ heads spin right now. While I too am troubled by the comics universe that I love being turned on its head by such flagrant continuity destruction, I can’t help but still look at the new Wolverine movie as a big chunk of fun.

If you’re a fan of the X-Men movies and Hugh Jackman, while never having read any of the comics, then you’ll love this film in all of its sweaty-Jackman-shouting-in-a-vest glory, but if you’re a comics diehard, it’s gonna make your head spin. As a movie experience it will leave you questioning Marvel’s intentions- do they really want to alienate so many of their diehard audience? It certainly looks like it, but then your voice of reason will kick in and remind you this is the movies, not the comics.

The thing is, the diehard core of X-men fans is dying off in the comics industry. With the X-titles moving ever further away from their glory days, I can fully understand Marvel and Fox wanting to cater more for fans of the blockbuster movies. Yeah, I even count X3 in that (hey, at least it LOOKED pretty, even though the script was trash). So if you’re an old-school fan of He Who makes The Snikt Noise, try not to get all ‘Scanners’ when you see the flick. It is, after all, just a movie.
