Chris Claremont Talks Not Being Credited In ‘The Wolverine’

Wolverine

 

The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman, arrived in theaters this past weekend. This is the sixth time Jackman has played the iconic X-Man, and the role has taken his career to heights it likely otherwise never would have reached, and much of that is owed to Chris Claremont. Along with artist Frank Miller, Claremont created the original Wolverine miniseries that this latest film is largely based on, and over his near 20+ years writing X-Men stories he did more to influence the development of Wolverine than anyone. Despite that, neither Claremont or Miller's name appears anywhere in the credits of the film, with not even so much as a "special thanks."

In an interview for Vulture, Sean Howe, the author of the Eisner-winning Marvel Comics: The Untold Story, asked Claremont for his thoughts on the film, how he feels about seeing his words on screen, and not being given any credit for the film's creation.

‘The Wolverine’ Suffers From A Distinct Lack Of Ninja Killing [Review]

Wolverine01

You know, I really expected Wolverine to kill more ninjas.

That's not being unrealistic, is it? I mean, when you hear that there's going to be a Wolverine movie based, however loosely, on the 1982 Wolverine miniseries by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, you go into the theater expecting a few things to happen. I wasn't really looking for a specific number or anything, but if you'd asked me going in, I would've told you that my most important expectation for this movie was that Wolverine was going to kill a number of ninjas that was greater than zero. when the ninjas actually do show up about 20 minutes before the end, I figured it was finally time to pay off, but nope. Never happened. In that respect, I'm sorry to tell you that The Wolverine did not meet my expectations.

Red Robin (Not The Sidekick) Wants You To Eat Wolverine’s Burgers

wolvieburgers

I realize that this isn't going to shock anyone, but for real? I am totally into bizarre food-related tie-ins for superhero movies. And as a result, I am way too excited about a pair of new burgers from Red Robin (the fast food chain, not DC's Tim Drake) meant to cash in on the upcoming The Wolverine movie.
