Alpha Wolverine

DC and Marvel are going gangbusters at adapting their comic book licenses to the silver screen. Of the two, Marvel has had more releases, and also more bombs. Though their debuts of the Spider-Man and X-Men franchises were financial and critical successes, I was less impressed with the third installments. So I'm not quite sure what to make of the upcoming X-Men spinoff that puts Hugh Jackman in the starring role he technically already had in the previous trilogy:

X-Men Origins: Wolverine comes out May 1st, 2009. Will you be in line?

    Although I'm more a fan of DC Comics' superheroes than Marvel's metahumans, at least in print, Marvel has had more success at the box office (with a few notable exceptions, such as Dark Knight).

    I think Wolverine: Origins looks promising, with a grittier focus on the X-Men's most popular mutant. On the other hand, the inclusion of several other characters, such as Gambit and the Blob, makes this seem like more of an "X-Men 3.5" than a movie about Logan.
