- William Stryker: The warden tells me that your sentence was carried out by a firing squad at 1000 hours. How'd that go? Logan: It tickled. William Stryker: My name is Major William Stryker. You boys tired of running? Tired of denying your true nature? Tired of wars? Victor Creed: Why do you care? William Stryker: Oh, I care. I care because I know how valuable you are. I'm putting together a special team, with special privileges. So tell me, after defending this country for 150 years and 4 wars, how would you like to really serve your country? William Stryker: Welcome to the war.
[from trailer] Logan: We didn't sign up for this. Victor Creed: Who do you think you are? This is what we do! Logan: I'm done. Victor Creed: We can't just let you walk away! [Logan rips off his dog tags and walks away] Victor Creed: Jimmy!
[Logan reveals the adamantium claws] Victor Creed: Oh! Shiny. Tell me something, Jimmy. Do you even know how to kill me? Logan: I'm gonna cut your goddamned head off. See if that works. Victor Creed: [Creed laughs]
[from trailer] Logan: [is shown his dog tags] I want new ones. William Stryker: And what do you want them to say? Logan: Wolverine.
Remy LeBeau: So what brings you to our fair city, sir? Logan: Victor Creed. Remy LeBeau: And who's that? Logan: The man I'm gonna kill. He works with a man named Stryker on an island. Just need to know where it is. Remy LeBeau: And why would you think I know that? Logan: Well, 'cause I know who you are, Gambit. You're the guy who escaped and you're the guy who's gonna take me back there.
- This and X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) are the first movies being produced by Hugh Jackman and John Palermo's new production company, Seed Productions.
Zack Snyder and Bryan Singer turned down the chance to direct the film. Snyder was too busy developing Watchmen (2009), while Singer was too busy with other projects. Snyder also was interested in making the film R-rated, while Hugh Jackman and Lauren Shuler Donner wanted to settle on a PG-13 rating.
Brett Ratner, Len Wiseman, and Zack Snyder all expressed interest in directing the film before Gavin Hood was signed.
Wolverine was created by writer Len Wein and artist Johnny Romita.
This will be the first time the popular mutant, Gambit will appear in any of the X-Men movies. He was rumored to be X2 (2003) and originally slated to make an appearance in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) but was cut from the story.
