Wolverine
Of the three big superhero movies this year, "The Wolverine" might well be the least anticipated at this point. "Iron Man 3" had the heat off "The Avengers," and has already made a billion dollars, while "Man Of Steel" has a reboot, the Christopher Nolan factor and some pretty amazing trailers. Whereas while James Mangold's film is from the longest-running superhero franchise currently going (it's thirteen years since Hugh Jackman first donned the claws), it's coming off two sub-standard films in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" and "X-Men: First Class," and it's reflected in the relative lack of buzz for the film.

Wolverine, Hugh Jackman
With "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" stacked to the rafters with pretty much every mutant they can squeeze into the thing, this summer's "The Wolverine" is looking pretty quaint. Oh sure, we'll get Viper, Silver Samurai and Jean Grey (probably), but those few barely even begin to scratch the sheer volume of players Bryan Singer is bringing to the table. Perhaps not be outdone, and to possibly try and ape Marvel's comic world building, it would appear that another face will be popping up as a late addition to "The Wolverine," and duh, spoilers below.

CinemaCon is the annual event where theater owners and studio types come together to massage each other, tell each other it's going to be okay, and then confer about how many bajillion dollars movies will make this year. Part of that process is showing off footage to get theater owners all hot and buttery and while in years past this kind of stuff has tended to say under the radar (for example, Oscar talk for "Life Of Pi" began at CinemaCon last year after some early material was screened, well before the public saw any trailers), things are changing. The monstrous CinemaCon trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's "Pacific Rim" dropped a couple of days ago, now Fox is following suit with their "The Wolverine" spot.

The Playlist's Most Anticipated Blockbusters Of The 2013 Summer Season
Ah, summer. That time of year marked by long days, short skirts, and the application of sunscreen. It’s the season where even the most hardened cineaste can put aside their Criterion Collection discs, if only for a moment, and get excited about the jazzy, visual effects-driven blockbusters coming down the pike. The line between “summer” and “any other time of the year,” in terms of movies, keeps getting blurrier and blurrier, with big-budget studio fare like “Oz the Great and Powerful” and “Oblivion” coming out in the spring (we had a Michael Bay movie open in April, for crying out loud – before this it was questionable whether or not he even existed outside of June or July).

Well, that got kind of ridiculous for a moment, didn't it? Teasing fanboy blue balls for the past few days, we've seen 6-second and 20-second teasers for "The Wolverine" (guess that promise of marketing saturation was fulfilled), but the full release arrives this morning with the first, complete trailer for the upcoming reboot (of sorts) for the superhero and the big question is: does it work?

This is getting ridiculous. After Fox debuted seven seconds of the upcoming trailer for "The Wolverine," the latest Hugh Jackman-with-claws superhero epic, on social media site Vine, they have taken to generously providing the world with twenty whole seconds of footage, this time courtesy of MTV. And what of the twenty seconds? Well, they do look promisingly cool, even if, the entire time, we were thinking, Man this would have been infinitely cooler if Darren Aronofsky had followed through. Snikt!

The Wolverine Logan Viper
It's one of those mornings. Super hero spoilers left and right! Oh no, what will you do? While there's no shortage of blogs telling you the second a "Wolverine" trailer will appear weeks in advance, aside from new photos this morning, there haven't been a ton of marketing materials on the Hugh Jackman-starring super hero film as of yet. At least, certainly not any video. That's changing fast.
