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.

Compared to some of its summer blockbuster superhero competition -- "Iron Man 3" and "Man Of Steel" -- "The Wolverine" has been playing its cards close to its chest. We've seen a smattering of images, and lots of encouraging talk from director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman, but not a frame of footage so far, and in general the film's a little more under the radar than its rivals, though we suppose that's fair enough, given that it won't hit theaters 'til much later.

While we've talked a lot about "The Wolverine," and recently dove into the diverse array of influences James Mangold is bringing to the table, we're still yet to experience the saturated marketing that's been promised. In fact, we haven't seen a moving image from the picture yet, though a trailer is due sometime between now and the end of the month. So until then? Here are a few more pictures to tide you over.

In the early months of promoting a big-budget film, parties involved usually make a play towards reaching diehards first, making their film seem like a boutique item to the devoted. This sort of fan service feeds the few who are credited with starting the “buzz” on a film before a trailer is released to the general public, at which point regular moviegoers can judge it for themselves. In recent years, some studios have turned this into high art, with filmmakers delivering pre-planned soundbites during shooting, teasing footage during public appearances, and even heading online to be ready for fans’ inquiries as sort of a cheerleader for their own work. It’s created an odd intimacy with fans not just in the filmmaking stages, but in the promotional exchanges as well. And while it can do much to stoke excitement and anticipation for an upcoming film, can this sort of marketing technique backfire?

Though its release date is only a few months away, James Mangold's summer tentpole “The Wolverine” has yet to boast a trailer (a fact likely to be remedied soon). There are a ton of images and descriptions to satiate fans in the meantime, but now, rather than just unveil another sneak peek at the film, the director has revealed a few of his key pieces of inspiration for the project, and they are intriguing.
