The first TV spot of 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' aired on FOX takes a look at the time young Logan discovers his mutant ability and kills his biological father out of rage.
The first of the three special TV spots for "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" has been aired on FOX and the bootleg video of it has been found. Revealing the younger year of Wolverine, the snippet is entitled "Outcasts" and starts with Logan being told by one of the scientists to focus on the reason he is joining the program before being lowered into the water tank.
As soon as the machine is started and the water touches the back of his head, Logan's childhood memory takes over, showing him laying on his bed with his father by his side. When a man cries for Elizabeth, his father rushes out from the room and leaves terrified Logan alone. Hearing a gun shot, young Logan, James Howlett, runs out to find that his father has been killed.
Enraged, James finds out that he has three blades implanted in between his knuckles. When the blades come to full extend, he storms to stab the man who has killed his father only to learn that the man he stabbed is his biological father. This spot has been broadcast on FOX during "Family Guy" on Sunday, February 15. The two other spots will come out on Monday, February 16 and Tuesday, February 17.
Chronicling the events leading to "X-Men", "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" follows the story of Wolverine. It focuses on his epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Starring Hugh Jackman as the titular character, the film also features Liev Schreiber, Ryan Reynolds, Lynn Collins, Taylor Kitsch and will.i.am among others.
