I think it's Shumacher's and the others who produced it who are at fault. They destroyed the original franchise and made it a joke once Burton left.

I agree about wolverine and disagree on some other levels. He makes a pretty good wolverine. Is he the choice I would have made, heck no, but he does the role justice even though he's about a foot taller than he should be.

A question?! Two-face in 'Batman forever' Tommy Lee Jones' Fault or Joel Schumacher's fault?

Hugh Jackman is the best Wolverine! I grew up reading the X-Men comics and he really brough Wolverine to life for me. Everyone is entitled to their opinion though.

Not likin' it right now. I don't see him as that perticular character. Keep him in the cowboy movies, but not in comic based films.

Tommy Lee Jones? Did Marvel not see how he slept-walked through his role in Batman Forever? I give him ZERO chance of taking this role seriously. Hopefully he'll drop-out due to a scheduling conflict with U.S. Marshals 12 or something.

I think that Logan could have a little participation in this film, because he fought in WW2!!!
