They going to grab Troy baker or Steve blum

Ever since I saw Wolverine and the X-Men, Steve Blum is the definitive Wolvie for me (like Kevin Conroy and Batman). He’s supposed to be savage and animalistic, and Blum captures that perfectly. An Insomniac game with him would be off the charts!

Any one of them will do. Including Hugh Jackman.

Wolverine is now a brave 6'4" trans Woman of colour. With a cleft palate. To reflect the world they think we live in.

Too much salt is bad for your health.

I can tell you're "that guy" at parties.

Leeroyw207d ago

Yeah well Netflix, Disney and Prime agree to disagree. Just cause you don't like my gag doesn't mean I'm wrong.

Exvalos207d ago

He was a great Wolverine in the MvC games before MvC3

But Steven Blum is the definitive Wolverine in gaming

Marvel's Wolverine Should Treat Deadpool Like One Classic Yakuza Character

Deadpool could play a vital role in the upcoming Marvel's Wolverine title by taking up the legacy of an entertaining Yakuza character.

I hope not. Keep it dark and grim. Just seeing Deadpool in that thumbnail makes it look like Fortnite.

I think we can live without Deadpool. If he shows up he either steals the show or isn't present enough. He's too popular for being a main character now that he doesn't work as well as a side character in a heavily story driven game like Insomniac Marvel games. I also don't think any of us want to deal with the onslaught of "Why Insomniac MUST make a Deadpool game next" articles.

I am guessing he isn’t in the game.

They are going for a more mature darker tone from the trailer shown.

Deadpool doesn’t fit that at all.

I think I saw the first movie once but I’d rather they keep Deadpool in his own games

SimpleSlave88d ago (Edited 88d ago )

Absolutely. This is not about maturity but about writing and presentation. Yakuza is quite literally a story about the Japanese Mafia and it takes itself EXTREMELY seriously in that aspect. Then it flips it around and goes all silly goose on us. You know actual real life is.

The whole "tHiS iS mAtUrE" argument shows how plenty of people here have a lot of growing up to do. Too much Edge Lording and not enough Perspective, Nuance and Reality.

But then again, this will be a game about a guy that has healing factor, is like 200 years old, has indestructible metal over his bones and grows claws our of his hands. And he also hangs out with actual demi-gods and literal gods that are able to alter reality itself. So I guess I stand corrected. Deadpool might actually not work at all.

Oh, well. Maybe next time.

Looking forward to it. Just ordered X-men Origins Wolverine to scratch some of that itch in the meantime.

Underrated gem that game is
