The most recent trailer for X-men: Apocalypse dropped yesterday, so I gave it a look.
If you check out my last trailer review–posted below–you’ll see what I think about about X:Men: Apocalypse – Trailer 2 below.
Singer’s also once again–if the end of the trailer is any indication–leaning on the crutch that is Wolverine. My problem with this is that he must not have read any of the X-Men comics that comprise The Age of Apocalypse because Wolverine isn’t a threat to a being like Apocalypse.
Adamantium claws or not.
Though what I keep forgetting is that more people know Wolverine, so of course we have to throw him into situations where he doesn’t fit (in the comics it was Kitty Pride/Shadowcat who went back into the past in the Days of Future Past storyline).
That made sense because, unlike Wolverine, she possessed the ability to go back in time.
Though worse of all I don’t understand why they do it. Fox has the rights to all the X-characters from Marvel Comics, so why not start using them already! And this may be wishful thinking, but there are so many of them that I’d be willing to be that if you have someone other than Logan a chance, maybe people would be interested in them too.
And you’d broaden the reach of your franchise, and you know, make more money long-term?
