2. X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Ignored?

Claws 585x241 10 Things to Note in The X Men: Days of Future Past Trailer

X-Men Origins: Wolverine was a terrible movie, and while many fans would like to erase it from their memories, is it also being erased from the X-Men’s movie history? In that movie, Wolverine was fighting in the Vietnam War in 1975 and still had his bone claws. His skeleton would later be coated in adamantium by a young William Striker around seven or eight years later. So, why in the scene above – which quite clearly appears to take place in the past – does he have those metal claws when X-Men: Days of Future Past takes place in 1973? Confusing, isn’t it?! This is one of many, many continuity problems that Bryan Singer and the movie faces, so hopefully the timeline can be somehow sorted out by the time the credits roll! Whether this is a mistake or there’s a reasonable explanation remains to be seen.

    From that trailer I don’t think Xavier meets Xavier. Looks far more likely that is Wolverine passing on a message from future-Xavier to past-Xavier.

    wolverine has bone claws because in the 2nd origin movie, he returns to bone claws after getting the adamantium ones cut off. Then he travels back in time leaving him with bone claws in 1973

    Yes, Wolverine returns to bone claws after the events of The Wolverine, but this list is questioning why he has adamantium claws in 1973. It wouldn’t make sense because:

    1. He got his adamantium skeleton in the 80s, so even if there was no time travel element in the story, there is no way for him to have his metal claws at this point in time.

    2. If we are assuming that the scene in the trailer takes place after the events of The Wolverine, where he loses his adamantium claws, then he should be seen with bone claws rather than metal.

    Of course, both of those points are moot if the scene in question takes place after he goes through the Weapon X program but before he gets his claws cut off.

    Actually, Singer has confirmed that those claws are bone in the past. Not adamantium.

    Those are pre-CGI claws…stunt claws if you will, the bone look will be added later.

  • DrNope

    I’m not seeing anything that confirms the presence of metal claws.
