Last week we brought you five profiles from X-Men Origins: Wolverine. They were 30 second spots that featured Wolverine, Sabretooth, Gambit, Deadpool, and John Wraith. Now, three more TV spots have been released and this time we get some insight into Emma Frost, William Stryker, and The Blob. If you’re a follower of this sight then you know my feelings regarding Emma Frost’s involvement in this film. I saw this video as an opportunity for me to change my opinion, and nope I still don’t like it. Judge for yourself .
View the character profiles after the jump.
I don’t personally care for Emma Frost being in this movie.Her character is so out of place and misrepresented. I know for film’s sake they have to change some things but they’ve got her all wrong. From what I’ve read she’s supposed to be a teenager who can her transform her skin into a diamond like state. Yet, in he comic she doesn’t gain that power until she’s an adult. Are they going to feature the island of Genosha? That’s where she was rescued by the X-Men, but they don’t even exist in this timeline.
On a positive note, out of these 3 profiles Kevin Durand’s portrayal of Frederick J. Dukes aka The Blob sticks out the most. It’s very interesting how they’ve not only altered the character’s look but also his demeanor. Where’s the fat? How will he use his belly bump against his adversaries? These are questions that need to be answered. I’m looking forward to seeing more from his character.
Sorry for my little fanboy rant, tell me what you think.
