Wolvie spoiler casting

Apr. 10, 2008by: Omar Aviles

WOLVERINE As the title of this article clearly states, the following news is most assuredly a SPOILER. And, from what I've been told, a SPOILER of the highest caliber. An uber-spoiler, if you will. If you don't wish to know any crucial plot points for the upcoming X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE then stop reading right now. Go look at pictures of Mila Kunis in a recent issue of Complex magazine, they're good. Now that you've been sufficiently warned, let's get cracking.

We've recently learned that British thesp and expert martial artist Scott Adkins will be playing [highlight to find out] Weapon 11 in the film. For those of you in the know, you should be aware of how crucial a plot point that is. For the rest of us, just know that Adkins' character manages to get into all out brawl with Wolverine and it should be pretty damn awesome. The brawl starts May 1st of next year.

It's a spoiler

because for years everybody thought that Weapon X was just the name of the project that spawned Wolverine, Sabretooth, et al. The readers/Wolverine went in search for the mystery behind it, and some writer revealed that it was a numeral, not just a codeword. Wolverine's life was SHATTERED FOREVER. Actually, it was just a little shake up that could be a big plot point in the movie. Whatever.

Arrgh...

Next they're going to tell us Albert and Elsie-Dee are cast and it's going to be some huge plot point dealing with Wolverines past.

All these characters anachronistically put out of place and shuffled around really is not a good thing for this franchise or this story. I want Wolverine, silver fox, and Saber tooth hunting them down. That bald guy from the Weapon X program + the married couple/scientists who work on Logan.

Simple, there's your wolverine movie. Maybe some allusions to

I just don't get why they have to muddy this thing all up when it practically writes itself. It makes the continuity of the character confusing and mostly irrelevant.

Too many hands in the cookie jar. And Beak's in this thing too, or rather a version of that character who now controls electricity or some shit. The black eyed peas teleporting all over the place. Agent Zero, Deadpool, Stryker, Sabertooth. GAMBIT!!!

How the hell does he figure into the Wolverine movie. It's gotta be a total cameo.

Anyway, it's beautiful outside and I'm just going to dream up my own Wolverine movie.

The importance...

Being an X-Men follower (but by no means a comic book geek), the only way that Weapon 11 figures into Wolvie's story - aside from being from the same government program - is that he saved Sabretooth from death.

But wait... what? How does that figure in? You see, later on down the road, Sabretooth slaughters Wolverine's girlfriend Silver Fox. So I'm guessing Wolverine is holding Weapon 11 indirectly responsible.

umm Im a little confused... Jmar left a link for you guys. I just went there and it completely and fully explains Weapon 11. Weapon X is Wolvie and Weapon 11 is simply the soldier created after wolvie. There are a total of 15 weapons created by the government

Hmm...

A very dim light.

I still think Aviles is over-dramatizing the significance of this character in Wolverine's history. I'm sure he plays a big part in the movie. But, why would Aviles act like it's some huge "geek elite" piece of information when really it's just an allusion to the possible identity of a new, minor character. It's not like there isn't an amazing rogue's gallery of villains to choose from, that they have to take a mostly nothing story line in the comics and inject it into the

Just keep it simple. With so many characters already appearing in this thing who needs yet another villain, especially a villain no one's ever really heard of or cares about.

I hate to say it, but this doesn't sound good at all. But, I could be wrong and just out of the loop.

Same here

"For those in the know" huh? Such a condescending remark frustrates me to no end. You must be talking about studio execs, cast members or the writers of the damn script, because I've looked all over the net for this Weapon 11 character. I've found nothing.

Can some one let me know? I think he's made up. How would Omar Aviles know about a character who seemingly doesn't exist? I want answers damnit!

I checked out Scott Adkins Reel on youtube. It's fucking amazing, that guy should be in

P.S. I love X-Men, but these big studio things are just a bunch of marketing guys and execs jerking each other off until money spews out of their soulless cocks right into their greedy, over-filled, stubby little hands. Iron Man looks good though.

Must not

be too big a spoiler if I can't find anything on this weapon 11 guy anywhere. He's not even listed in the official character list on marvel's own web page.

Sweet...

...or at least it could be if the movie ends up being any good. Anyone who HASN'T read Grant Morrison's run on New X-Men needs to NOW. Some of the best X-Men ever penned.

Not that anyone cares but Daniel Henney graduated high school from the next town over from me (and the same school one of my friends graduated from a couple years after him) and my girlfriend knows him and his family. LOL!
