Previously on X-Men: X-Men Origins: Wolverine

On this episode of Previously on X-Men, Eric and Hilary re-watch X-Men Origins: Wolverine. A movie that was meant to lead to a whole bunch of solo X-Men films. This did not happen.

We talk about the 2007-2008 Writer’s Strike and it’s affect on the film, the new cast, the new prequel timeline, whether Wolverine’s first adventure will be his last and all the things the movie does right (ha!) and the things the movie does wrong (so many). Weirdly, it’s our longest episode yet.
