The first trailer of the X-Men spinoff, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is out today and its looking good. I’m a big fan of Wolverine, him being my favorite mutant in the X-Men universe, I’m really looking forward to see it. Its releasing on May 1, 2009 in U.S. with the Indian release also on the same day (Check worldwide release dates). Directed by Gavin Hood and starring Hugh Jackman, reprising his role of Wolverine from the previous X-Men movies, this is the first of the X-Men spinoffs in the line. X-Men Origins: Magneto will follow after sometime.
The movie is set around 20 years before the first X-Men movie, and its all about who Wolverine is and how he bonded with the adamantium skeleton in the Weapon X program. Other main characters in the movie are Sabretooth played by Liev Schreiber, William Stryker played by Danny Huston and Gambit played by Taylor Kitsch.
