The Wolverine: Origins movie is set to hit cinemas some time in 2009. Besides the release of a couple of official images as well as casting announcements, not a lot else about the movie has made it out... until now.

I was trawling through some comics forums when I found some screen shots taken from the X-Men Origins: Wolverine teaser trailer screened recently at Comic-Con in the US. I've done a little cropping of the photos and tried to tidy them up, with limited success. They are obviously screen captures from footage taken with a video camera, so don't expect pristine picture quality.

Let's start with a couple of shots of young Wolverine. These seem to be very close to a couple of the panels from the Wolverine Origin series. Take note of the bone claws.



Next is a shot of Wolverine and Sabretooth surrounded by army guys. Yes, Wolverine and Sabretooth look as though they are roughly the same height, but I guess we will all need to deal with that.

Next up Gambit, swinging his pole and tossing some cards... there's probably a double entendre in there some where...

Here's a shot of the Blob looking blobby.

The consensus seems to be that Emma Frost is going to be making an appearance in the film, and these images below of a blond transforming into a diamond skinned beauty would support that.

Finally, the character I've been waiting for the most to make his big screen debut, Deadpool. As the image below shows, Deadpool obviously makes an appearance pre-Weapon X experiments, as he looks suspiciously like Ryan Reynolds, and not the disfigure, unhinged merc with a mouth we'd expect.

You can follow the thread these pictures were originally sourced from here, and keep an eye out on YouTube as it's only a matter of time before the trailer makes it's way onto there as well.

    It is Ryan Reynolds. Check the IMDB page on the movie.

    Gambit is being played by some Abercrombie and Fitch model.

    Seraph – My point was that deadpool wasn’t disfigured as he is in the comics. I’m wondering if they are going to keep him all ‘pretty’ in the movie because it’s Ryan Reynolds, or whether that screenshot is from a scene prior to Wade Wilson becoming Deadpool?
