I get what he's saying, but...and you knew there was one. I hate to see Wolverine monopolize another film. Prime example was X-Men 2: X-Men United. Cyclops the Field Leader of the X-Men was in the movie like 5 minutes while Wolverine was pretty much there the whole time and had a major subplot devoted to him. I was like is this an X-Men picture or a Wolverine picture? It was more like Wolverine & The X-Men.
I get that Wolverine is a very popular character and that Hugh Jackman as Wolverine is equally popular, but sometimes less is more...or an equal balance of Wolverine in other movies can be struck.

I love Wolverine, and I love Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. But he doesn't need his own flick. Wolverine is the guy who pops into the movie every fifteen minutes or so, does a shot, says something badass, and then kicks some ass. That's the proper dose of Wolverine. Without a Wolverine cave or a couple of dead parents to mourn, you can't make a whole movie about him, much less a quasi-reboot of a Wolverine movie they made just a few years prior. Wolverine should just do cameos. Like in that new Woody Allen flick! That would be something.—Drew Magary, GQ Magazine
