X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Trivia: When Wolverine goes to the gym to talk to Fred, Fred gets insulted because he thinks Wolverine calls him a "blob" (Wolverine actually uses the word "bub", as he often does). In the comics Fred's character's name was the "Blob".

Trivia: In the scene where Stryker is in his lab looking at a little boy with two different colored eyes that seems to be frozen, he's actually looking at his son Jason that we meet officially in X2.


Trivia: In the end where Wolverine is freeing the mutant prisoners, one of the prisoners is tied up, seems to be trying to run out of the cage and has white hair. This is Quicksilver, Magneto's son.

Trivia: One of the poker players that Gambit is playing against is professional poker player Daniel Negreanu.

Trivia: For the beginning of the making of this film, Liev Schreiber had the claws he wears as Sabretooth superglued to his fingernails, but he found that to be very uncomfortable and later gloves with the claws bonded to them were developed for him to wear.

Trivia: Liev Schreiber was originally supposed to wear a fake muscle-suit to look physically imposing. He begged the filmmakers to give him time to train and try to gain more muscle mass, as he felt humiliated wearing the suit. His request was granted, and he ended up gaining nearly forty pounds of muscle after months of training, and no longer needed the muscle suit.


Trivia: This was meant to be the start of an on-going "X-Men Origins" series of films, but the idea was dropped after this film was met with a mixed reception from critics and fans.


Trivia: The only X-Men film to feature fan-favorite character Gambit. He was meant to appear in the previous films, but his part was always written out during pre-production. He was also meant to have a spin-off movie after this film with Channing Tatum taking over the role, but it never got off the ground.


Trivia: A DVD-quality version of a rough cut of the film was leaked online only about one month before the film was released in theaters.


Trivia: Hugh Jackman has admitted he was disappointed with the finished film, and sought to do the character justice with the sequels, "The Wolverine" and "Logan," which were far better received by critics and fans.


Factual error: When Wolverine is being chased after the explosion of the barn, there's a Humvee chasing the motorcycle. The movie is supposed to take place in the late 70's - the Humvee started production in 1984 and started service in the late 80's.

William Stryker: I can't take Victor down myself, Logan. To kill him you're going to have to embrace the other side. Become the animal.

More quotes from X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Question: Given that Logan's body (skin, bone, muscle, etc) is what "regenerates" quickly, and Adamantium is absolutely fixed once it is solidified, Logan would now have two permanent holes in the front of his skull from the bullets fired into his brain to destroy his memories at the end of the film? Unlike the skin, muscle, bone and brain tissue, the Adamantium would not "heal over" or regenerate, so the two vulnerable bits of bone would remain, a bit of a vital vulnerability in a dangerous area of the body.

Answer: That would indeed seem to be the case. Granted, it would have to be an extremely lucky shot to find one of those holes under his flesh, but, yes, it is an apparent vulnerability.
