I’ve seen some fan-created trailers and title sequences that easily rival the sort of stuff we see out of professional studios. And it only makes sense, given the lengths some fanboys will go to when it involves one of their fave series.
Gary Shore, is just that kind of fan. And good news for us: he loves Wolverine. So, while we wait patiently for Darren Aronofsky to film the next chapter of one of our favorite X-Men characters, Gary Shore has released a moody take on Logan that offers a tiny peek at how the next flick may unfold.
Shore, who happens to be a commercial and music video director, filmed some storyboards showing Wolverine battling those evil ninjas known as the Hand and managed to lay down a score that is both moody and ethereal.
But enough talking, let’s get to the watching, shall we? Hit the jump and watch this amazing fan creation for yourself.

There’s been a bit of a Hollywood delay on this news, as nobody has been able to confirm whether or not director Darren Aronofsky will direct the sequel to last year’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. It’s been up in the air for quite some time but it looks like the film’s star, Hugh Jackman, put the rumors to rest and confirmed it for us.
In a recent impromptu interview at Elton John’s Enduring Vision gala on Monday night, Jackman announced that he’s getting physically ready to start shooting next year, alongside director Aronofsky. From NY Mag.
“Expect to see four chicken breasts and a whole pile of steamed broccoli on my plate,” he told us. “I’m starting; I’m having my six meals a day.” With Darren Aronofsky directing, he says that Wolverine 2 will not be a “usual” X-Men movie: “This is, hopefully for me, going to be out of the box. It’s going to be the best one, I hope,” he said, and then paused. “Well, I would say that, but I really do feel that, and I feel this is going to be very different.”
Also, Jackman doesn’t think that Aronofsky’s penchant for dark drama is at odds with the big-budget action franchise. “This is Wolverine. This is not Popeye. He’s kind of dark,” Jackman said. “But, you know, this is a change of pace. Chris McQuarrie, who wrote The Usual Suspects, has written the script, so that’ll give you a good clue. [Aronofsky’s] going to make it fantastic. There’s going to be some meat on the bones. There will be something to think about as you leave the theater, for sure.”
So there you have it. The star could be way off, but chances are, being the face behind this multi-million dollar franchise, he knows his stuff. Expect to get official word in the next few days, and expect to see more about casting as the film readies principal photography early next year.
I don’t think anyone would dispute that the character of Wolverine is not only one of Marvel’s most popular but one of the most popular in all of comics. His look, powers, aggressivenenss and just plain bad atitude have won him fans acround the globe.
Now, as Marvel is doing with other titles like the X-Men, they are starting a brand new Wolverine comic with Wolverine #1. Fortunately, we are able to bring you a preview of that book right here today. From writer Jason Aaron and artist Renato Guedes this new story sees Wolverine’s soul getting sent straight to hell.
However, while Wolverine’s soul is in Hell, his body is terrorizing all that are close to him. This new comic promises to show Logan doing what he does best, in true Wolverine fashion. And what he does best is not very nice.
Check out the previews for the new comic after the jump. Wolverine #1 hits stores in September.
