As we are living in a capitalist society, and the more money companies make, the better, here are some of the products that will be released along with the movie:
X-Men Origins: Wolverine Uncaged. This game will be available for every platform there is. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, check it out: XBox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii, Playstation 2, PSP, Nintendo DS and even for PC. The game was voiced and motion-captured by Hugh Jackman and Liev Schreiber themselves, reprising their roles as Wolverine and Sabretooth respectively. As you can see below, the game is highly rendered and pretty violent, not for the faint at heart.
Panini Comics, house of Marvel and DC in Brazil, is going to release FIVE Wolverine special comics this week. All in Portuguese, unfortunately. They are:
Wolverine Annual 3 – Different stories of Logan with no real connection and no need to know the years of continuity to enjoy the stories.
Wolverine: Inimigo do Estado – This collection of published stories from the monthly Wolverine comic, from issues 20-32, puts Wolverine up against the world, basically. He’s being mind-controlled by some kind of enemy he made over the years. It’s great fun and the way he just finishes the Fantastic Four is amazing. Oh, he also fights all the X-Men and SHIELD.
Wolverine: Duro de Matar – I don’t really know the story here, but the writer is Warren Ellis and the artist is Lenil Yu. Apart from that, I know zilch. So try leafing through the comic before buying it.
Eu, Wolverine – This one is a must have, because it’s the first mini series of Wolverine published, waaaaay back before he even had a comic of his own. It’s written by Chris Claremont (who created the X-Men as most people know it) and penciled by Frank Miller (do I really have to say who this guy is???). The guys at Panini are reprinting it with some added bonus stories too. This is a MUST HAVE for any Wolverine fan.
Wolverine: Logan – All I know about this one is that it takes place in Hiroshima during World War II, so no adamantium skeleton, or claws, to help him. It’s written by Brian K. Vaughn, just one of the producers and writers from this series called LOST, and penciled by Eduardo Risso, and Argentinean artist who specializes in grim and gritty, right up Logan’s alley.
Cheers and see you at the movies on Friday for X-Men Origins: Wolverine!!!!!! Snikt!!
