Wolverine is the first character specific spin-off from the popular X-Men film series. Hugh Jackman reprises his role as the claw-bearing Logan/Wolverine and is joined by Liev Schreiber as his mutant sibling Victor Creed – later known as Sabretooth in the first X-Men film. The film introduces us to these two characters as they fight through each of the main wars in history, inevitably ending up as part of a mutant taskforce headed by William Stryker, played by Danny Huston. Logan walks off on the taskforce after disagreeing with the team’s code of behaviour and finds a peaceful life in the Canadian Rockies with love interest Kayla, played by Lynn Collins. Once Logan’s secluded existence is disrupted by a visit from Victor, he enlists in the Weapon X program, setting off the vendetta between the two mutants over the course of the film.
