Soon after the major internet leak of an unfinished version of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the film’s director Gavin Hoodannounced that the movie would have alternate post-credits endings, with different prints of the film containing a one of the endings. I don’t know how many endings there are in total, but so far two have been talked about online.
Since this is a SPOILER article, here’s your warning: SPOILER, this article discusses the ending of Wolverine and other aspects of the film and includes spoiler video.
First, there’s a scene that interrupts the end credits soon after they begin and shows a previously persuaded Stryker walking til his feet bleed and then some when he’s stopped by military police who want to question him about the murder of General Munson. I’m assuming this scene is probably included in every print of the film.
But then there was a super secret ending…
When the end credits are completely done, another scene is shown. The version I saw tonight had the one with a decapitated Deadpool/Weapon XI reaching his hand out from the rumble to reach for his severed head. Once the hand finds it, his eyes open and he says “Shhh…”
You can watch this final scene here below (hurry before it gets pulled).
Reports are that the alternate post-credits ending show Wolverine in a bar in Japan, where he tells the bartender that he’s drinking to remember.
Here’s some of my thoughts/queries on the film. Feel free to respond/explain/clarify.
Thank you Highlander, there can still only be one.
The dialogue was beyond cliche and completely eye-roll inducing.
The action was totally badass and made up for the horrible dialogue.
Hugh Jackman as Wolverine still rules.
Nothing against the actress who played Emma Frost, but she’s nothing like I imagined for this character. A better choice would have been Heroes‘ Ali Larter.
Thank goodness those backwater farm folks had a son with such good taste in clothes.
I’m still not sure why Victor Creed killed Bolt.
James is Wolverine’s given name and he grew up thinking James Howlett was his father. It turns out that Victor Creed’s father Thomas Logan — who killed James Howlett — is really James’s father. James kills Thomas Logan, who reveals the truth to him as he dies. So why would Wolverine then go by the name Logan?
Why would Creed fake Silverfox’s death instead of actually just really killing her? She had a “deal” with Stryker, but once they got what they needed from her, why would they have let her live?
If Silverfox’s powers of persuasion didn’t work on Logan and Creed, then why did Stryker send her to be with Logan in the first place? Why did he let Logan live in peace for six years?
As Silverfox was bleeding to death, she managed to grab hold of Stryker’s leg to use her mutant powers of persuasion on him. Instead of killing him, she tells him to walk until his feet bleed, I’m guessing she figured he’d drop dead from it eventually. Umm, this is the same guy who’s been killing people off and holding mutants captive and experimenting on them. Don’t you think that if you had the right and responsibility to kill someone, it would be this guy? By letting him live, she put other people’s lives in danger. Plus, how did her powers continue to work on Stryker after she died? Or for that matter, after she stopped touching him?
How did Scott Summers (Cyclops) know the way out of the facility?
How did Professor Charles Xavier know where the mutants were being held and how did he manage to show up just as the youngsters escaped?
Why is it so easy to fly your plane undetected onto Three Mile Island?
