(Spoilers Ahead) Just what changes will Wolverine face in "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and future X-Men films?

By the end of this summer's comic book movie "The Wolverine" we have seen Logan undergo a drastic change which may effect his key characteristics we all know him from. But just what will this drastic change bring for Wolverine in future X-Men films including Days of Future Past?

Hey folks, just your average basic user "TheBlackWolverine" giving my insight on just what may lie ahead for Logan in the future X-Men films we're set to see. I also want to point out some minor changes I honestly believe Fox Studios will make further down the line in regards to Wolverine's son Daken.

I'll just jump straight to the interesting stuff instead of dragging you along an article with stuff you've already seen since I since I did warn you all this is a spoiler related article.

By the end of the Wolverine we're all pretty much aware of the fact that the Silver Samurai has indeed chopped off Wolverine's Adamantium claws which has left Logan with just only his original bone claws. At first I was a bit skeptical on just how Magneto was able to stop Logan from hitting him in the Airport. For some odd reason I thought that The Silver Samurai managed to strip Logan's entire Adamantium metal from his skeleton, but after rethinking what I saw in theaters I was completely dumbfounded to know that he was almost drained completely of his mutant DNA instead.



With this being said he was not indeed fully drained as we all may know but was rather stripped of his claws, left with his adamantium skeleton and has now relapsed to having his bone claws once again.

Let's look at that Airport scene just for the heck of it...



Logan has been indeed encountered by two X-Men legends Professor X and Magneto in regards to the events that will eventually take place within next years X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Now that we're already fond of knowing that Wolverine will be the main key time traveler within DOFP we also know that the 1972 body of Logan will indeed have bone claws because of the fact that he doesn't undergo the Weapon X procedure until 1985 if I'm correct. With this being said is it possible that Logan is destined to repeat this same procedure or will Fox totally ignore the Timeline of Origins and have Wolverine already adamantium clawed up in the 70's?

After hearing that a much younger William Stryker will be introduced within the 70's time frame in DoFP is it possible that a young William Stryker will manage to brain wash Logan into joining his Weapon X program at it's earliest stage?



We may be fond of knowing the key conflict in Days of Future past however until we're set to see some actual footage of Wolverine with or without his adamantium claws only time can tell if Wolverine is destined to repeat this horrific experience.

And could this possibly lead us into another solo film for Wolverine named "Wolverine: Weapon X"???



We already know that an X-Force film is underway however it seems as if it'll have a modern feel to it than that of the past. With characters such as Cable, Colossus, Deadpool and Domino set to appear on the big screen together we also know that there is an original "five member" line-up for the film. Perhaps Wolverine will fill that final spot...



Now here's one interesting thing I thought of while viewing The Wolverine, Wolverine and Mariko did indeed get down that night in her separate home outside of the palace. So is it possibly that Fox could possibly turn around the Origins for Wolverine's son Daken and have Mariko become the mother instead of Itsu?



Only time can tell... Fox's X-Men universe is expanding by the second who knows what other surprises have yet to surface.

You can check out The Wolverine in theaters now. Enjoy one of my favorite trailers with one of the best themes I heard for it thus far. Stay powerful, stay super and stay wise my friends!

I've been thinking alot about all of the X-films lately. I'm gonna rewatch them and write a revised editorial on what DoFP will be like.
NBAfanaddict - 8/5/2013, 11:21 AM
First time watching the after-credits scene. Have to admit, that was cool.
TheRationalNerd - 8/5/2013, 11:30 AM
@NovaCorpsFan

Same here bro, I even watched them all before I saw the Wolverine. Each film may have had their own flaws but they were all very entertaining and set the bar high for heroic team films. I've just been a little stuck lately, does Origins come before First Class or does First Class come before Origins??? lol Ive got my entire Blu-Ray rack of X-Men films and I'm trying to get the order right between Origins and First Class.

@NBAfanaddict

When people in the theater I was in saw Professor X appear I heard so many gasp. And so many people we're just astonished by seeing him ALIVE on screen. The theme when he enters just matches the tone perfectly and when he says "Hello Logan" I just caught the chills! lol

Can't wait for DoFP!!!

Plus there's actually supposed to be a 2min DoFP footage released at today's Fantasia Festival. Hopefully someone will leak it! God I pray that they will!!! :D
NovaCorpsFan - 8/5/2013, 12:13 PM
@BlackWolverine. The conclusion I'm at for now is as follows:

Origins is the first film in the trilogy's timeline with The Wolverine being the last before DoFP.
FC is the beginning of an alternate timeline. Reason being, you don't see Shaw take Mags in X1 but you do in FC. Shaw is not brought up at all in the trilogy despite how much it would have enhqnced Mags as a character.
So perhaps Shaw is the key. In one timeline he takes Erik, in another he doesn't. Thus creating the alternate timeline.
In the ALTERNATE timeline in which Mags goes after Shaw, Prof X. is crippled at an early age, whereas in the trilogy timeline, the pair remain friends well into the eighties.

Thats all I'm saying for now 'cause I need something for my own editorial.

Okay, I don't quite get this. I hear so much whining from fanboys about changes made to characters and storylines that are fairly minor (costumes in X-Men, the Mandarin twist, Superman killing Zod, Hank Pym not creating Ultron, among others), none of which fundamentally altered a character or greatly enhanced the story and/or character. And yet, Wolverine has his Adamantium claws cut off, which to me is a fundamental aspect of the character (to me this is kind of like taking away Superman's heat vision or Spiderman's wall-crawling ability), and I haven't really heard much whining at all. Now I haven't seen the movie yet, so that plot device may be a good one, integral to the story. But I am very surprised that Wolverine & X-men fans aren't yelling & screaming about it.

"we also know that the 1972 body of Logan will indeed have bone claws because of the fact that he doesn't undergo the Weapon X procedure until 1985 if I'm correct"

Actually according to XO:Wolverine...Logan underwent his adamantium procedure during the mid to late 70's due to the fact he had them during the Three Mile Island disaster, which in real life too place in 1979.

So depending on wat early year in the 70's DOFP takes place, he could still very well go through the procedure later on one way or another.
Odin - 8/5/2013, 1:43 PM
@Lhornbk Wolverine had the adamantuim taken completely off once in the comics; that event revieled that he has originally bone claws, so no character-insult done here.

But I'm actually kinda of with you on this topic; I too don't get most of the whining with the character changes.
NovaCorpsFan - 8/5/2013, 1:58 PM
Just wrote a list off the computer screen in X2... Oh. My. God.
dougieisrollingthejays - 8/5/2013, 2:30 PM
It was a decent movie. He can get them back easily. also end of credits scene was amazing. I wish they would just reboot DOFP inside the MCU. but oh well
GliderMan - 8/5/2013, 3:06 PM
I try not to think about the years in the movies because it gets confusing.

One thing I DO NOT want is for them to wipe XMO:W, X-Men trilogy and the Wolverine out of canon. There's absolutely no need to reboot/revamp and it'd be too easy to fix the continuity errors. Ugh.
SimpleeComplex - 8/5/2013, 3:36 PM
Um friends, maybe i missed something and you guys can help?...How did Wolverine get his INDESTRUCTIBLE ADAMANTIUM CLAWS chopped off? Did Fox butcher this aspect too? I follow the comics and seem to only recall from the 90's Magneto manipulating the adamantium metal, making it malleable, and forcibly ripping it off Logan's skeleton. Thanx.
SimpleeComplex - 8/5/2013, 3:44 PM
How can someone (maybe cuz Silver Samurai's weaponry was adamantium)break something that's unbreakable, sounds they're at least trying to be consistent with the logic from Origins: adamantium bullet against adamnantium bones causes memory loss. To me this just sounds undermining and even like an anomoly...adamantium is indestructible except against itself, which means it is not indestructible? : [
TheRationalNerd - 8/5/2013, 3:46 PM
@SimpleeComplex

I'm about to post some spoilers so I will warn you

3...
2..
1.

Alright so as you may know The Silver Samurai was constructed from Adamantium (including his two giant swords) He struck Logan's claws twice. The first time I was like "OH SH**" the second time I was like... "HOLY SH**!!!"
TheRationalNerd - 8/5/2013, 3:50 PM
@SimpleeComplex

Ohhhhh nevermind I see you basically said what I was thinking during that scene. It kind of makes sense that the only thing that could break the element is the element itself. Plus the sword looked like it was at least 10x heavier than Wolvie's thin claws so that much weight on a sharp edged sword that massive would cause it to break in my opinion. Can't wait to see what comes next! :D
Lhornbk - 8/5/2013, 5:32 PM
Okay, I have another question about the adamantium/bone claws. It's my understanding that the adamantium was grafted onto his bones, that the liquid basically enveloped his entire skeleton and then cooled, leaving all his bones covered with adamantium. Therefore he ended up with adamamtium claws because the liquid adamantium covered the bone claws (exactly how the liquid cools to form an extremely sharp edge is a complete mystery to me, his bone claws didn't seem to function as knives so much as skewers.) So if the adamantium claws get cut off, it should cut off the bone that is covered by the adamantium too. So how does he still have bone claws? I'm guessing that supposedly his healing mutation regrows them, but I didn't realize his healing factor was strong enough to regrow limbs. Would he grow back a cut off arm or leg too?
megabatfan - 8/5/2013, 5:46 PM
@ Lhornbk
Not really versed in X-men lore, but I do recall reading an X-men comic in the past, where Wolverine actually grew back his fore arm after it was blasted off or something... So yeah his bone claws re-grew
CaptainHulk3 - 8/5/2013, 6:05 PM
TO ALL MY CBM BRO'S OUT THERE! Any movie script idea, plot point, character change, anything you have ever wanted to do if you made a movie!?!??? Anything ......Anything is better than what Hollywood executives are trying to push now!!!!! #IDIOTS But I did like Trevor! So I know you guys are gonna call me an #IDIOT but thats okay! Im cool with stuff when its funny! And the more I think about old Trevs I laugh my @$$ off! Cant wait for the dvd! I think when you can see Trevor in the comforts of your own home, you'll see! #DontBlameTrevor
WeaponX93 - 8/5/2013, 7:44 PM
From what I understand, this is going to be either perminant, or Mangold gave the two year gap to do a bone claws sequel in the event that DOFP wipes out the first timeline.
*SPOILER ALERT*
I got a question for you guys: who killed the bear? Some say it was the hunters, some say it was Harada because he used the poison on Logan.
OrgasmicPotatoe - 8/5/2013, 7:51 PM
Hey, CaptainHulk, why don't you try "shutting the [frick] up" and see how that goes ?
TheRationalNerd - 8/5/2013, 8:11 PM
@WeaponX93

You know, I was thinking the same exact thing, like what happened during those two years? He's no longer with Yukio so I guess they departed. I wouldn't mind if they made a comic book spin-off or video game explaining the events that happened afterwards.

And I'm assuming that it could've possibly been Harada like you explained. I really thought that Wolverine and the Bear were going to have a showdown but I was oh so wrong...lol
TheRationalNerd - 8/5/2013, 8:14 PM
@Lhornbk

Almost everything you said was basically what I was trying to accumulate within my conscious today...lol I was wondering the same exact thing, like how was he able to extract bone claws after his original claws were chopped off. But then I had to think about how long it took him to let them extract out once again thus killing The Silver Samurai. I just want him to get the metal claws back! Please let him get em back! lol :D
CPBuff22 - 8/5/2013, 10:33 PM
If you want to go by the comics then Wolverine can regrow everything after a point blank nuclear explosion. If we go by the movies he also healed after a neucular explosion, though in the movie he took cover.
AC1 - 8/6/2013, 10:48 AM
@Lhornbk he regrows his bone claws in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, during the first fight with Victor Creed. Victor stamps on his claws and shatters them, then they heal.
CaptainHulk3 - 8/6/2013, 3:53 PM
Hey look Potato head ...........can use adult words! Why u so mad bro! You must be an Orange County latch key kid!!! Or you must have a stock option should I start listing the failures of the HOLLYSTUPID PRODUCERS????? Don't worry I won't because it could diable the site down with data overload! Didn't know that criticizing rich overpaid never giving the fans what they want only what is cheap movie producers was so offensive to the potato population! Producers act like artist that dwell in the douce bag body of a car salesman, just trying to pick pocket the public! Now go watch DisneyJr small potatoes!
MisterMagurlypse - 8/6/2013, 4:24 PM
As far as I know the Sliver Samurai's sword(when heated with the Samurai's power)is the only thing that can affect adamantium. Logan's claws can grow back cause they're bone, he cannot however grow adamantium back. That would have to be relaced with melted down adamantium.

I would imagine that if he had some melted, he could simply dip his claws into it and they'd be back. If the mid-credits seen is 2 years after the events of them being cut off and he still hasn't gotten them recovered with adamantium, either A)he can't find it or B)he really does'nt care if they're bone or not. I'd go with the latter. In my eyes it's not the metal claws that make Wolverine who he is. It's his ferral rage and his expert fighting skills amoung other traits.
MisterMagurlypse - 8/6/2013, 4:26 PM

DrStrange - 8/13/2013, 11:39 PM
In my opinion Wolverine losing his adamantium claws is just as rediculous as the whole mandrin twist in Iron Man 3. What the h*** is wrong with these directors?
I mean; we saw how easy it was for Victor Creed to break those bone claws. How strong are they actually?
