LOS ANGELES, CA – The Wolverine movie has leaked onto the internet. Weekly World News has a recap of the plot, including the surprise twists. Spoilers ahead!
An earlier draft of X-Men Origins: Wolverine was leaked onto the internet yesterday. Although many changes are expected to be made in editing before the official release, here is a synopsis of the plot.
James Howlett is born the son of a country gentleman in 19th century Canada. He shares his time with the older boy Victor Creed, the gruff and mysterious son of the groundskeeper. His dreams of living the quiet life of rural aristocracy are shattered when his mutant powers manifest and he accidentally butchers his family with giant retractable claws.
James and Victor run away to Oxford where they share long idyllic afternoons having picnics and reading poetry to each other. Their affection is punctuated by a constant battle of wits they are engaged in around each other.
With the coming of World War 1 the two enlist in the army. During a German siege, Victor becomes entangled in some razor wire. Desperate to save his friend, James experiences his first berserker rage and kills an entire battalion. Victor writes a ballad to his savage bravery titled “Wolverine.”
James and Victor continue a long and distinguished military career, interrupted only when Wolverine agrees to take care of seven mutant children hiding from Nazis in the Austrian Alps.
Victor Creed becomes disconsolate without his friend and soon develops a horrible case of consumption. Desperate to reach his friend in time, Wolverine must fight his way through Nazi Germany. Using his heightened mutant reflexes he drives a motorcycle into a jeep, using the explosion to propel him onto an enemy helicopter. Slaughtering the occupants, he is able to get to Victor’s chateau in Switzerland and be with him in his final moments.
Distraught by the death of his dear friend Wolverine faces the Nazi mutant super team in a climactic explosion filled battle.
Comic book fans are on the fence about the movie, some upset with the disregard for the source material and other enjoying a fresh take on the characters. Which direction the final edit will take remains to be seen. X-Men Origins: Wolverine opens May 1st.
