I'm ******' psyched by that trailer!  Gambit is one of my favorite X-Men and to finally see him in a film is awesome.  The kid playing him, Tyler Kitsch, is pretty good, too.  Plays that brooding type very well.

And is anyone else looking forward to seeing what Liev Schreiber can do with Sabretooth? 

On paper the cast looks awesome, the visuals shown look incredible and the list of mutants is top notch.  I'm really looking forward to this film.

Liev Schreiber should be worlds better at the Sabretooth character than Tyler Mane.  At the very least he could act circles around Mane.  And while Sabretooth had always been a physically imposing adversary for Wolverine in the comics, there was always a lot more going on in their conflict.  It was personal.  Sabretooth knew how to get under Wolverine's skin.  And that's much more interesting to me than just seeing Wolverine fight Sabretooth.  It's the personal conflict that makes the fight that much more compelling.

The final Wolverine trailer was supposed to go up at noon EST today, but apparently USA Today posted it early.  I'm looking forward to seeing this movie, but - if one particular character is who many think it is - they are taking some...um...liberties with Deadpool in this movie.

Ryan Reynolds is Deadpool.  I don't know that he ever wears a mask.

That movie looks much better than I thought it was going to.  I love the idea of Reynolds as Deadpool - his character from Blade III seems like a pretty good match for merc with a mouth.  Depending on how it plays out, this could be a springboard for his own flick.  I thought I recalled reading that he was just a regular guy with a healing factor similar to Wolvie.  He was burned and left for dead, but survived thanks to his healing ability, so it would make sense that he doesn't wear a mask until after that.

Yeah, it doesn't look as if he wears the mask in this flick (or maybe at the very end), but he seems to have some funky things going on with his powers (having Wolverine/Cyclops-ish powers).  I've read some spoilers that would maybe explain it somewhat, and I'm not usually one to complain too much when they make some changes to adapt it to the big screen, so I'll wait and see.  Still excited to see this flick.

I thought it was another kid (young Cyclops, perhaps) that has Cyclops' powers.  They look a lot a like.  I need to look at the trailer again.

Yeah, it looks like young Cyclops is in the movie as well - but I was talking about this shot posted on the SHH forums, which appears to have both "claws" and laser vision:



Again, I'm not positive this is Deadpool - I'm just going by internet forum posters and the recent toy release which apparently looks similar to this (shirtless/tattoos/etc.).  I'm definitely not the most knowledgeable about this movie (or even Deadpool as a character).

Yep... that's Cyclops, not Deadpool.  Deadpool is later in the trailer with his swords.

Anybody have any idea who the black guy is?  Only one I know from the comics is Bishop.

I don't have any idea who that is.  He was in one of the teaser trailers as well.  But it's not Deadpool.  Ryan Reynolds is a lot leaner.

Looks like one of the baddies from Mortal Kombat.   ;D

Yeah, I didn't think it looked like Ryan Reynolds either - but the Hasbro toy does say that character is Deadpool.  Unless they have an entirely different guy playing him (stunt man?), it looks like a different actor to me as well.  I've read some things saying that this is "post scarred" version of Deadpool (since you see Reynolds in the trailers as well), and then there are some rumors/theories as to why he has these other powers as well.  By the way - I agree - Reynolds should be a great choice for DP - looking forward to seeing that.  Its actually nice to see Cyclops included - the recent trailer pretty much shows him getting more action sequences than the X-Men movies.

I'm with you Brian, it looks like the same guy to me...  same color pants, same claws, same tattoo/markings.  Maybe not the "classic" Deadpool, but it's definitely who Hasbro thinks is Deadpool in the movie.
