wolviecast1 Breaking! WOLVERINE cast includes female
This is seriously the most hottie guy-packed movie since 300. We don’t even KNOW who to obsess over. And given the recent stringent enforcement of the “There can be only one” rule re female characters in all but chick flicks, the testosterone levels are about to bust right out of the tube.

BUT…what’s this? A scene where young Emma Frost and Silverfox meet?

Will they talk? OR just stand symmetrically aligned while planning to kick butt? Will X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE pass the Bechdel Test? This could be a real groundbreaker.

  2. Saw this last night. That’s not Emma Frost or Silverfox.

    That’s who the women are, according to this photo at IMDB.com.

    P.S. Apparently the credits in the movie aren’t quite complete.

    Richard — Fox’s official site says different but…NO SPOILERS!

  5. Richard – It’s Emma; it’s just “Secondary Mutation Emma”, instead of “Corset & Hellfire Emma”, each sold separately ;-)

  6. Well, since I haven’t read an X-Men or Wolverine comic since the late 1980’s I’m surprised I was able to figure out at least half of the characters in the film, so….. :b

    Um.i heaaard..SPOILERS…That these two characters are..zomg. sisters. Plus,as you can see in the trailer, Emma has her secondary diamond skin mutation.Unfortunately, that’s her only power. And I won’t even get into how that is and isn’t Silver Fox.

  8. I saw the film tonight. They are sisters. Silverfox was Wolverine’s lover, but her sister you find out was held hostage in a sense. Whether or not, it’s Emma Forst exactly I thought she was in the film. You also see Quicksilver as well which was cool…and the Blob, who was awesome.

    Hugh Jackman has a great movie here I thought, though I wish they do a Deadpool movie with Reynold’s, but that seems unlikely not unless they do a Highlander II and fix what they did to him…

    She’s not Emma Frost unless she’s supposed to be Emma Frost and we’re not supposed to know about it… because it doesn’t match anything about Emma Frost aside from that dumb diamond skin addition. She’s only referred to as Kayla Silverfox’s sister Emma, and you don’t even know that Silverfox IS Silverfox unless you read the credits. Last I heard, Emma Frost isn’t Silverfox’s sister.. but then again, wasn’t Silverfox an American Indian? If so, Moon Bloodgood would have been a much better choice for Silverfox, but apparently she picked a good summer film in which to be cast. Also, how would two American Indian sisters look so completely different… expecially one of them looking more like Paris Hilton rather than a member of one of this country’s first inhabitants. Bloody Awful Film.

    Also, last I heard Logan and Creed were not brothers. This isn’t a spoiler, by the way.. it’s in the first five seconds of the movie. It’s also in the television spot titled “BROTHERS.”

    Bloody AWFUL Film… but at least most of the action scenes were decent. Ryan Reynolds was a great choice for Deadpool, but his efforts in any Deadpool film would amount to voiceover work… which wouldn’t be such a bad thing. And why are the adamantium claws so much narrower than the bone claws which were huge and unruly? Did they shave them down before the bonding process?

    Oh, right.. this film has NOTHING to do with the comics from whence it came.

    Bloody Awful Film that it is. (Best part about Wolverine? The trailer for District 9.)

    Did you like it?

  11. well, the babymen will not like it….the general public will. Hahaha!

  12. I am really looking forward to seeing this!! Emma Frost, gambit, quicksilver, the blob, cyclops back… and deadpool!! Too bad Reynolds is only in the film for like 10 minutes (I heard), I was hoping to get some bare chested merc with a mouth… and bod!! haha…

    Tom: Did I like it? Well, at least it wasn’t the abomination of X-Men 3.

    Seriously, though, after the really, really stupid Crane-Shots-Of-Rage that should never, ever appear in any movie ever again (“Nooooo!!!!!” screams Waylon Smithers), it was a competent, relatively engaging superhero movie — a letter grade of B/B- on my version of Roger Ebert’s “Is it a good example of its genre?” scale — it’s a bit too loaded with cliches (besides the Crane Shot of Rage):

    Wolverine flipping the bird at someone with his claw, which was funny in t he first X-Men movie but is gratuitous here, the Gambit-Wolverine “Fight-Cute” (ie: the typical Marvel “We fight each other before we (or the stupid, trigger-happy one) realize we’re on the same side idiocy. Silver Fox is basically The Girl archetype/stereotype. Yeah, both, but OTOH, that’s ten times the personality she had in the comics. The superhero movie cliche of (SPOILER ALERT!!!11!1!!) killing off a perfectly good, otherwise reusable bad guy at the end of the movie. (My theory for a follow-up: he grows the rest of his body back out of his head.)

    And then there’s the “I’m Wolverine, I’m the best at what I do and what I do isn’t very nice.” That was scary and hysterical when Chris Claremont wrote it the first time three decades ago, but it’s been so over-used that it’s gone beyond cliche and into self-parody. In a bad way. The theater was 3/4s full and I groaned loudly at the line, while others gave uncomfortable chuckles under their breath (not at me, at the line.)

    Oh, well, at least none of the cliches were misappropriated from Watchmen via Heroes’ theft of certain tropes from those comics (Sylar, a watchmaker. I mean, really?!) The movie seems to be almost gleeful about using the most obvious cliches from the superhero genre, so I suppose the movie gets some credit for the director and writer for shooting low and achieving it.

    Also, for those trying to argue that Emma isn’t Emma Frost. Come on, unclench, man up. It’s not the comics. She’s Emma Frost. And she does have a (now dead) sister in the comics not named Silver Fox from which the movie could combine the comics’ Silver Fox and Frost Sister. Adding the relationship for the movie changed Silver Fox from being the complete cipher that she was in the few comics she appeared in to a much more engaging (albeit cliched) character. Oh, and having her be Emma’s older sister makes for a neat juxtaposition between brothers Logan and Victor.

    Finally: About that elderly couple that Wolverine meets. I wanted the husband to open up a small box containing a glowing green rock and when it had no effect on Logan, he’d close the box and say, “Just checking. You can’t be too careful around here. Our son . . . he has a lot of enemies.” And hey — instant crossover!

    Yikes! Sorry! I put waaaay more thought into that than the movie deserves.

    I guess you didn’t watch “Wolverine ‘B'” then. Oh, yeah.. newsflash, different endings on different prints.

    “Also, for those trying to argue that Emma isn’t Emma Frost. Come on, unclench, man up. It’s not the comics. She’s Emma Frost.”

    Well, by that logic, the fat guy could be Emma Frost if the screenwriter had just called him that. And technically, she’s “Kayla’s sister/Emma,” so it can be argued that she’s NOT Emma Frost and also that she isn’t NOT Emma Frost. For now, she’s just Kayla’s sister/Emma.

    “Oh, and having her be Emma’s older sister makes for a neat juxtaposition between brothers Logan and Victor.”

    Not really. Both are equally stupid.

    I really don’t care much for the comics continuity. I didn’t like Origin much, and I didn’t like that story in Wolverine written by Jeph Loeb and drawn by Simone Bianchi (I think that’s who it was). I didn’t like X-Men 3. I think Wolverine was an average film that could have been so much better if it was treated like a film instead of a license to print money.

    It’s going to be a disappointing summer. So, when does “The Dark Knight Strikes Back” start filming?
