    Honestly, while I know this is wildly dferifent from the comics -- Wolverine was in no way a willing participant of the Weapon X program -- this is looking good. Wolverine's both animalistic and human, the former of which the X-Men movies pretty much ignored, sadly. Sabretooth seems to be as he should be: quite frankly, in X1, they made him too much the animal. Reading the comics, he's got way too much cunning in him to be put down to a mute muscle man.The one thing I'm worried about is the same problem that X3 ran into. Trying to cram too many of the Marvel characters into one movie. I saw: Wolverine, Sabretooth, Deadpool, the Blob (apparently not as immovable in the movie world as in the comic world), Emma Frost (secondary mutation in the Weapon X program? What?), Gambit, Silver Fox, Kestrel, what seems to be young Storm, what could be Garrison Kane (flying roundhouse kick just before it shows Emma), and any other Weapon X members they put in like the Professor, Dr. Cornelius, Hines, etc. And seeing as they won't be introducing them initially as a team, like with the X-Men, it's kind of hard to get away with that many characters. And hell, those are just the ones we saw. They could still put in all kinds of Weapon X, Alpha Flight, and X-Men characters.I'll be watching it in theaters, for sure, but damned if I can't help but be a little hesitant with that many characters in it, and not knowing what kind of time it spans. Obviously from when his powers manifest to at least when the Weapon X program...but after that...up until he joins the X-Men? Alpha Flight? Guess we'll find out come May 1
