Day 956 of 365 Again.

I’m more or less gotten over my feelings on the Watchmen movie, so Hollywood decided it was maybe time to crush my spirits.

I hadn’t really been excited about the solo Wolverine movie coming out. He’s not really one of my favorite characters. But the previews show that he’s joined by other X-characters, including Cyclops, Gambit, White Queen and Banshee. It should be very interesting.

The Gambit thing inspired me to dust off one of my favorite camera tricks. The funny thing about 52 card pickup shots is that getting the lighting and camera speed right is easy. The hard part is getting the shot to go off at a good time when the cards are just right in the air. I’m still not superhappy with it, but I got tired of picking the cards up off the floor to try again over an over, so this will have to do for now. Maybe I’ll try it again sometime in the future.

    I am not a fan of the currently canonical Wolverine origin story. I preferred it when his past was more mysterious. I thought the origin story took away from the mystery and wasn’t a very interesting story. (I frankly don’t even remember the details all that well at this point…)

    sui66iy: yeah. It was kind of pointless really. Their official reason for doing it was even pointless and stupid. Something like "we knew sooner or later they’d want to explore his backstory in a movie, and we’d rather that the backstory be created in a comic book rather than the movie, so we felt we had to do this."

    That said, as I understand it, the movie isn’t focusing on the early life of James Howlett (what that story you’re talking about did) but his time in the Weapon X program, which had been established for years. And of course they’ll be changing that anyway.

    In other words, "ummm… yeah, Marvel is stupid."
