Short answer: We don't know because Deadpool hasn't come out, but Ryan Reynolds (who was heavily involved in writing/producing the movie) was pretty clear that his Deadpool character is a brand new character: “Deadpool appearing in ‘Origins’ is not the Deadpool we are representing in this film, in any way shape or form.” src Longer answer: Wade Wilson in ...

Wolverine's bone structure was molecularly infused with adamantium. Though this is a comic book, and thus subject to comic book realities, molecular infusion is a real process, albeit a very experimental one.* The ORNL researchers validated the properties of this remarkable surface treatment that Deininger describes as "an implantation that anchors a ...

They are half brothers sharing a father In the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine you see that Wolverine is originally known as James Howlett. He sees his "father" (John Howlett) being killed by Thomas Logan, a man who works as a groundskeeper on his John Howlett's estate. James then extrudes his bone claws for the first time and kills Thomas Logan, who ...

Obviously Wolverine’s slowed ageing is entirely fictional, so it can pretty much work however the authors want it to. But, in general: Wolverine’s main mutant ability is his “healing factor” — his body will very rapidly repair damage that would be fatal to humans. As such, I don’t think the ageing we see him do in Origins is particularly surprising. From ...

He used Wolverine as a test to make sure the healing factor in Wolverine was strong enough to survive the adamantium injection. He then took the healing factor and added it to Deadpool. Deadpool was to be the ultimate mutant weapon, with multiple level 4 mutant powers. From Wikipedia: [has] been transformed... into... a mutant killer who possesses ...

Using information cleaned from this answer, I can tell you that yes it should have. His bones have become laced with beta adamantium (at least at the time that Wolverine: Origins is filmed). Adamantium Beta: The only known occurrence of Adamantium Beta was during the Weapon X Project. By the second part of the procedure when they laced his bones with ...

According to Xmenmovies, Zero/David North's powers are related to his skills with guns: Superhuman Marksmanship - North was an extremely lethal marksman, to the point where he was able quickly draw his gun and shoot Wolverine's cigar without hitting him. Zero is also very skilled with most weapons (usually sidearms), and is very perceptive of the ...

He remembers everything that happened from the day that he was sent back to in 1973 until he fell into the water and his mind traveled back into the future. He does not remember anything after Day of Future Past 1973 events because his mind traveled back into the future. So you can't remember things that you did not experience. For example: supposing you ...

I don't think there's an in-universe canonical answer to this outside of the quote you already mentioned. I think this is one of those times that Hollywood got it wrong. You're right in that it shouldn't have pierced his skull It should have bounced. If a real bullet can bounce of a normal human's skull (which does happen) then even an adamantium bullet ...

Presumably, yes. He was a member of Team X, which was Stryker's black ops team of mutants. While his powers are never clearly spelled out, they seem to include superhuman accuracy with guns and enhanced agility/strength/reflexes. Since his powers are so subtle, it's easy to be unsure if he's really a mutant or not, but his team affiliation is our best ...

Jean Grey answers this question in the first X-Men movie: Dr. Jean Grey: "His mutation. He has uncharted regenerative capabilities, enabling him to heal rapidly. It also makes his age impossible to determine. He could very well be older than you, Professor." Now for the biology of the aging process itself... it's divided up into two factors. There are ...

While Wade Wilson was turned into a character vaguely similar to Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, that specific story has been effectively undone by the events of Days of Future Past. The new Deadpool movie does, however, exist within the post-DOFP x-men-cinematic-universe. Producer Simon Kinberg recently explained this: But I work on all of those ...

No, as of the release of Days of Future Past, Fox no longer considers X-Men Origins: Wolverine to be canon. The series producer, Lauren Donner, made this statement in an interview at the premier of Days of Future Past, in which she said: “Just forget about ‘X3’ and the first ‘Wolverine’ - forget about that, too!“

No, they're not maintaining continuity between the two. “Deadpool appearing in Origins is not the Deadpool we are representing in this film, in any way shape or form,” Reynolds told EW’s Jess Cagle and Jessica Shaw Saturday on EW Live on SiriusXM.

Wolverine has fought villains that have Adamantium bonded to various parts of their bodies, for example: Lady Deathstrike, Donald Pierce, Sabre tooth, and most notably in this area of discussion, Cyber. Cyber's body was coated in Adamantium and Logan could not hurt him at all with his Adamantium claws. He had to find another way to take him out. His ...

Pre - Adamantium Wolverine and Sabertooth have practically the same powers and abilities, with Wolverine having a slightly better healing factor. So, in a fight between them, the outcome would come down to brute strength and fighting ability. Wolverine stands at 5'3" and weighs 195 pounds without Adamantium as shown on Wolverine's data from the official ...

I'm assuming that you're asking if the character of Wade from X-Men: Origins is the same character as Deadpool in the upcoming movie Deadpool. To quote from CinemaBlend's review of the movie's script Of course there’s a problem in turning Deadpool into a movie, it’s a problem caused by X-Men Origins: Wolverine where the character was first introduced, ...

For one thing, Wolverine was kind of busy and working on a schedule. It would have been difficult to go to the trouble of tracking down Sabretooth, particularly if Victor was on a mission for William Stryker at the time. He could have been literally anywhere on Earth, and Logan, having suffered serious memory loss at the end of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and ...

I don't recall the caliber of the guns/rifles being used, perhaps there weren't any suitable for Zero's weaponry. I think an expert might not like to use bullets he may have never fired before and so be unfamiliar with the load/flight etc.

In the movie "X-Men Origins: Wolverine", Logan and Sabretooth share a biological father - the groundskeeper Thomas Logan - and are therefore actual brothers. This idea was based on the "Wolverine: Origins" comic book, in which Wolverine finally remembered his "true" past along with his real name... James Howlett. Over the years the two have had a long, ...

TL;DR: his civilian name is not revealed in the first movie, but there are elements from other works which hint at the tie-in comics confirm Sabretooth being indeed Victor Creed. It's unclear whether the two are the same individual. X-Men (2000) Sabretooth isn't referred to as Victor Creed in the final cut. In fact, as you may have noticed, his role is ...

According to the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe (Vol. 1), Wolverine is a Canadian National living in the United States. Notably he was married, albeit briefly, to Madam Viper. She appears to also be permanently resident in the US so it's possible that she was able to sponsor a green card for him. Alternatively he may have simply claimed to have ...

I thought they were mostly trying to catch him still. I didn't think that bullets could kill Wolverine, even before he got the adamantium. If he could die in a hail of gun fire, it is doubtful he would have lived through the wars montage, or the firing squad scene. If I correctly recall the scene where Stryker tells Zero to kill him, Stryker was either ...

There are several points to this: I think your reasoning is sound, so yes, he should have a bullet hole (or rather two because he was shot twice). But the holes are probably small: A blunt bullet would have fragmented without penetrating his skull. So it didn't but damaged his brain by ricochetting inside the skill a couple of times. This also matches ...

Fact that he regenerates doesn't have anything to do with normal growing. Every creature (including those almost immortal) grows to reach their full maturity which includes increasing size. In simpler words, he stopped being boy, because his body wanted to grow to full potential and produce offspring and humans stop maturing somewhere around 25-30 when the ...
