Contrary to earlier reports, “The Wolverine” will not be leading off “The Hobbit” movie, says film’s director James Mangold.
Mangold, on his Twitter, early this morning said:
“Contrary to reports their will be no trailer on ‘The Hobbit’ for ‘The Wolverine.’ You will get a glimpse early 2013. I promise.”
Just earlier he tweeted that the film and crew was on the last day of production, thanking all those involved.
So, which high profile movie will the trailer possible attach itself to? Some possibility for conjecture could be hunt for Osama Bin Laden movie, “Zero Dark Thirty.” The two counterparts parallel in terms of theme and context: action and a set of characters that have to cope in their new environments. It would be one of the earliest glimpses being only eleven days into next year.
Another more likely possibility is the next of Bruce Willis outings as John McClane: “A Good Day to Die Hard.” Both have pop culture heroes that have their loyal fans, and both have been seen in numerous cinematic productions. The fact seems to be solidified more so because both are the offspring of Twentieth Century Fox, so both would be financial benefactors.
Finally, as one commentator mentions in the aforementioned quote, maybe it will be seen in the biggest show of all: the Super Bowl. Just like what has been done with Captain America the same can go for Wolverine. Of course, the Super Bowl has gotten bigger and bigger, but also, it will be on Fox.
“The Wolverine” will be release July 2013 and hopefully the trailer will mirror its quality.
