The sabretooth cat and the angry badger: A pictorial primer for Hugh Jackman's X-Men Origins: Wolverine
See the wet Wolverine.
The Wolverine is angry.
The Wolverine goes "Ahrrrrrrr!"
That is basically all you need to know to understand X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
The Wolverine is played by Hugh Jackman.
Hugh Jackman sang and danced as host of the 2009 Oscar ceremony.
Jackman also starred in another film last year called Australia.
Hugh would prefer that you forgot about Australia.
Now, in 2009, Jackman returns to the roots of his movie stardom.
He lifted weights so he looks tough and strong.
He looks a bit like a young Clint Eastwood, only not as mean.
Here are the main characters of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool) can deflect bullets with his sword.
He's a bit like Wonder Woman only she uses special bracelets to deflect bullets.
Taylor Kitsch (Gambit) is a gambler who can throw a mean card.
Liev Schreiber (Sabretooth) is a lot like a sabretooth cat.
When he gets angry, he goes "Ahhhrrrrr," his claws extend, and he has vampire-like teeth.
Lastly, there's Lynn Collins as Kayla Silverfox.
Wolverine falls in love with Kayla, so that means she's likely to die.
Why does she die? So Wolverine can go "Ahhrrrrrr!"
This is a photo of an actual wolverine.
Like Jackman above, he's also wet.
He's probably wondering how he can sue 2oth Century Fox for mucking up his image.
Here's a picture of a sabretooth cat.
Notice how it too goes "Ahhrrrrrr!"
Liev Schreiber acts like this for much of the movie.
This is a photo of a badger.
The badger is in the same carnivorous mammal family as the wolverine.
The Film Doctor thought it would be appropriate to get a badger involved somehow.
Here's Wolverine and Sabretooth about to fight.
Jackman will go "Ahhhhrrrrr!"
Schreiber will also go "Ahhhrrrrrr!"
They will slash each other with their various claws and blades.
But since they are mutants, they always heal quickly.
So they can fight again.
Sabretooth can also run on all four legs(?) like a cat.
They are probably fighting, still.
And that's all you need to know to understand X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
