The early years of James Logan, featuring his rivalry with his brother Victor Creed, his service in the special forces team Weapon X, and his experimentation into the metal-lined mutant Wolverine.
In a Q & A with Kevin Smith, Edgar Wright revealed he was offered the role of Chris Bradley/Bolt by the producers. He declined, citing he wasn't a good enough actor. Hugh Jackman called him, along with other producers of the movie, with the impression that he had said "yes" to the role. Wright later e-mailed Jackman to politely decline the role.
Young Victor Creed:
You're always sick.
Young James Logan: You were sick when you were my age.
(at around 28 mins) Kayla tells Logan the story of a wolverine howling at the moon. Wolverine vocal cords are unable to make a howling sound. But cultural stories are not always scientifically accurate, especially if they are a way for a culture to explain something in nature.
SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: William Stryker is arrested and taken into custody for the murder of General Munson).
German theatrical version was cut by the distributor before submission to the FSK to secure a "Not under 16" rating (the killing of the old couple is shortened, you don't see Wolverine igniting the gasoline). Ironically, the uncut version, submitted for the home video release, was rated "Not under 16" as well, thus rendering the cut theatrical version completely unnecessary.
