A trailer for The Wolverine appears to be coming soon.  This teaser was posted to YouTube a couple of days ago, and it sounds like promotion for this movie is about to ramp up.

Does anyone think that we're going to see a toy line for this movie that's similar to what we saw for the first solo Wolverine movie?

I hadn't seen any posts on it recently, but there has been a lot of stuff coming out about the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past movie due next summer.  Peter Dinklage is on board as the "primary antagonist", and much of the casts from the previous movies are returning including:

James McEvoy/Patrick Stewart (Prof X)
Michael Fassbender/Ian McKellen (Magneto)
Hugh Jackman (Wolverine)
Nicholas Hoult (Beast)
Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde)
Shawn Ashmore (Iceman)
Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique)
Anna Paquin (Rogue)
Lucas Till (Havok)
Caleb Jones (Banshee)

I haven't heard anything about that, but should make a great story.  I still haven't taken time to watch First Class...   :-[

I wonder if Dinklage is just going to voice a member of the Brotherhood who's entirely CG.  He doesn't seem to quite fit in with any established DoFP characters.

For diversity reasons Apocalypse is now a little person.

Hmmm.  Primary antagonist?  Given the storyline of DOFP, I would think that Dinklage might be voice acting.  The Sentinels are the primary antagonists in the future part of that story.  Is it possible that they might introduce a character like Master Mold as the guiding force of the Sentinels in the future?

***EDIT - According to THIS ARTICLE, Dinklage is likely to be playing Bolivar Trask, the scientist who invented the Sentinels.


The story definitely becomes more complicated with how the movie storyline has dealt with Cyclops, Jean Grey, et al.

BTW, Qui-Gon Jim...love the Puck idea!

I think he would make an awesome Apocalypse. Would love to see that.

Great news. I was disappointed she didn't reprise her Catwoman role in The Dark Knight Rises.   :D

I'm not terribly surprised.  Halle Berry's star has fallen somewhat.  She's done some great work over the years, but it seems like she's not so much the darling of casting directors that she was 10 years ago.  And perhaps she's not getting the offers that she used to get?  I think that made casting her in this new X-Men project that much easier.

She's also over 45 now, as much as she doesn't look it.  Most actresses can't get a role past 30, so it's pretty normal that she wouldn't be getting leading roles at this stage in her career.  Also she had a kid and ended a marriage over the last few years, so she's been doing some real life stuff that kept her out of movies.  Looking at IMDB she's still playing lead once or twice a year the past few years.  I wouldn't say her star has fallen, as much as her career has evolved.  And I doubt she's desperate for a supporting X-role.

First trailer for July's "The Wolverine" is up today:

http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/fox/thewolverine/

Looks pretty good so far.  From what I understand they are pretty much pretending X-Men Origins: Wolverine never happened, so I don't think this story has any relation to that one.
