The Wolverine Official Trailer : Logan's Feeling Vulnerable

Following three relatively disappointing entries into the X-men franchise, which started with the awful X-men: Last Stand, followed by the widely panned (And non-canon) Wolverine: Origins and concluded with 2011's mediocre X-men: First Class, I was honestly relieved to see Marvel put the series on ice temporarily and rethink their approach to the franchise.

Dare I say it, this entry actually looks interesting for the fact that it features Logan losing his healing factor, implying an entirely new dynamic to the typically invincible, cocky Wolverine that we're used to seeing. Aside from giving him a reason to stop taking his existence for granted, the trailer also implies that losing others is the true factor that continues to eat away at him. As good as the trailer is though, I'm taking it with a grain of salt considering writer Mike Bomback's involvement, who managed to mangle the Total Recall remake so badly that it was close to unforgivable. Cautious optimism is the best way to move forward.
