In the mood for a little dish on the forthcoming Wolverine movie? How about a lot? Today’s your lucky day — Wizard has posted a fat pantsload of information, speculation, and other assorted -ations, and we’re here to break it down and point you in the right direction for all the Wolvie news that’s fit to print.

As previously announced, David Benioff — who also wrote Troy and this fall’s The Kite Runner — has written a script that everyone seems to love, and Gavin Hood (of last year’s Oscar-winning Tsotsi and the upcoming Rendition) will direct. Also, as previously confirmed, there’s no room at the inn for most of the familiar faces from the X-Men films. The bulk of the lengthy article, however, deals with the movie’s finer points, including plot details. To wit:

Based on info from insiders who say they’ve read Benioff’s script, get ready for all kinds of prequel action as Wolverine’s first ties to Weapon X, his first run-in with Victor Creed (aka Sabretooth), his bonding with adamantium and his feral origins are explored. When asked if the film would touch on Wolvie’s early-year comic book connections to Japan, [Hugh] Jackman curbed the rumor in favor of others.

“[The Japan connection] is still something we really want to do,” admitted the actor-producer. “What we need to do is establish who he is and find out how he became Wolverine. And by the end of the movie, I want it to be that you definitely knew who this guy was, like Mad Max and Dirty Harry. He’s a good guy, but he’s not a nice guy. He’s just the guy you want on your side.” Sources also mentioned scenes featuring Wolverine in Vietnam, a pre-X-Men love interest for the furry mutant and character names familiar to comic fans such as the teleporter John Wraith, who served with Wolverine on special ops missions as part of Team X, along with Fred J. Dukes (aka the Blob).

Wolverine‘s release date is still being listed as “sometime in 2008,” but for pretty much everything else there is to know right now, check out the article below!
