did i just witness a possibly compelling storyline and characters? this might be the first watchable wolverine film.
Your Lord knows very well what is in your heart. Your soul suffices this day as a reckoner against you. I need no witnesses. You do not listen to your soul, but listen instead to your anger and your rage.
The scene with Xavier in a bed old and frail really hit me hard, it reminded me of watching my grandfather get old and wither away. Then the scenes where X23, Logan, and the professor are sitting and smiling at a table as well as X23 holding Logan's hand really strike home for me. I want this film to be amazing.
Hopefully, when she gets her own role in future properties, she's strongly influenced by Wolverine- and is a character driven by her memories like Logan was in the original trilogy constantly trying to fix/reminisce about his past. A lot of the scenes with X23 seem to evoke that the two have a strong bond.
Knowing ****ing FOX though they'll never recast the same actress, or the character will go through way too many inconsistent changes. If they kept her consistent she'd be one of their mainstays like Logan was for 16 years in the Xmen films

Interesting trailer. I am wondering exactly how Logan got so old and crusty though. If Xavier is still alive (and he was already like 90 by the time of DoFP), the time line can't be that much further along. Maybe the time line shift from DoFP caused changes to his encounters in Japan, from The Wolverine, as well as affecting the result. Those guys did screw with his healing factor during that film, and SS did partially age him (albeit temporarily in the original time line) at the end of it.
