Interesting point:-) Since Wolverine is a fictional character, it could simply be because adamantium teeth are not good looking:-) However according to this article It seems to be related that teeth do not have any cells to repair themselves, plus they are exposed to what we breath in and eat. Maybe the bones that where bonded where only the ones that ...

To answer your main question, X-Men First Class is based before X-Men Origins. X-Men First Class is based in the 60s. In 1962, the United States government enlists the help of Mutants with superhuman abilities to stop a malicious dictator who is determined to start world war III. In Origins, Striker doesn't approach Wolverine until the 70s. ...

Marvel licensed the Mutants portion of their universe to Fox. This means the marvel-cinematic-universe has no mutants in it*, as they can't use those characters. Ergo, in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. there are no mutants, which means no X-Men, no Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, etc. *The exception being Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, which are a special part of ...

Scoping it within the limits of the X-Men movies, specifically X-Men: First Class we have the following Raven Darkholme: We have to call him, Havok. That's his name now. And we were thinking... [points to Charles] Raven Darkholme: ...you should be Professor X... [points to Erik] Raven Darkholme: ...and you should be Magneto. Erik Lehnsherr: ...

In humans, teeth make up part of the skeletel system but they are not classified as bones. Teeth are made up of Dentin and Enamel whereas bones are made up of Osseous tissue. So I imagine the adamantium only bonded to the Osseous and not the Dentin or Enamel which results in adamantium bones and shiny white teeth.

I assume that because he no longer has powers (and is no longer a mutant) they see him as no threat. The main idea of prison is to rehabilitate criminals so they can be released back into society safely. Magneto losing his powers was his rehabilitation as such. I assume the authorities think that Magneto's power loss is permanent so he will no longer want ...

I think this quote on the X-men: First Class wiki page gives us a decent amount of insight as to why they're making "prequels": As producer Simon Kinberg read the comic series X-Men: First Class, he suggested studio 20th Century Fox to adapt it. Kinberg, however, did not want to follow the comic too much, as he felt "it was not fresh enough in ...

Well, mostly because the costume is a bit ridiculous when taken out of the context of four-color comics. Might as well ask why Logan's hair doesn't stick out to both sides as much as it does in the comics: just because something works, visually, in the medium of print comics doesn't mean it will work in the medium of live-action cinema. As @AnkitSharma ...

Probably for the same reason that humans are not really magnetic to start with: The amount of various metals in a human is actually quite small. I checked out this Wikipedia entry on the composition of the human body, took the metals you mentioned and checked to see how much all those metals together weigh. The total amount of all those metals in the average ...

Memory is stored as a series of chemical changes or connections in the Brain. So the memory is in fact a neurological matter existing physically in the brain. Amnesia is loss of memory. The memory can be either wholly or partially lost due to the extent of damage that was caused. There are two main types of amnesia: retrograde amnesia and anterograde ...

Liev Schreiber who plays Victor Creed in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is indeed essaying the role of Sabretooth (as depicted in X-Men). From Wiki Played by Tyler Mane, he was a henchman of Magneto in the first X-Men film and X-Men: The Official Game. Liev Schreiber plays him in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Since, your awareness of the comics ...

X-Men (1st series) # 20: (May 1966) Years ago, Xavier discovered a city in Tibet being under some sort of alien mind-control. The professor managed to inspire a rebellion against Lucifer, and the alien was forced to abandon his base, however not before causing a block of concrete to fall and crush Xavier’s legs.

the goal of the experiment was to bond the admantium to the bones inside the body forming the skeletal framework only When wolverine was 'bonded' with admantium, the experiments carried out were to inject and turn the bones into admanitum so that a skeleton of this 'super-metal' will make the body highly resistant to damage. The admantium was only injected ...

I cannot provide as much insight (or any knowledge about the comics) as DForck42's answer. But from a mere movie viewpoint the finale X-Men tirlogy was a pretty closed end, with many main characters dying, or losing their powers (Xavier, Jean Grey, Magneto). I guess this can make it a bit harder to start a new story after those events, whereas the time ...

Yes, they are the same person. Sabretooth (Victor Creed) and Wolverine (Logan) worked together for the CIA and they both were part of the Weapon X project. How did he become brainless henchmen for Magneto? In the comic he does not work for Magneto, with the exception of the time when Magneto becomes the leader of the X-men after the supposed death of ...

Because X-Men is not The Last Airbender? Because the amounts of these metals in the body is far to small, remember the security guard had been injected with a lot of iron (this is about one of the most ridiculous scenes I have ever seen!). Also because the metals that you list are not magnetic (they only generate a tiny magnetic field)

As @VedranŠego's answer says, Fox owns X-men right till they make movie on them. Fox already have lost right of Daredevil and related property, so they are not seen interested in loosing anymore rights of marvel character. Some rumors suggest Fox has to use this property and make film in every 3-4 year too sustain rights. And currently, Fox didn't stopped ...

Here is some info, although I don't know how reliable it is: "Alright, Gambit1024! I understand why Spider-Man and Wolverine can't be in the Avengers now, after all! But there's still one thing I don't get: Can Marvel/Disney get the rights to those characters back?" They sure can, little voice! See, the contracts for say, Daredevil and the FF, say ...

Although Origins is accurate in naming Sabretooth Victor Creed, it is inaccurate that he be declared Logan's brother. X Men Origins: Wolverine is based much on the comic book series Wolverine Origins. The entire opening scene is a spin of the comic series' events. However, they add that Victor's dad is actually James' (Logan) as well. In fact, in that story ...

There's also the US constitution to consider. The 3rd movie made clear that mutants were now recognized by the government and receiving representation on the president's cabinet. The Equal Protection Clause of the 14th amendment to the US Constitution says: Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the ...

I'm not sure how there's any confusion about Professor X being in the wheelchair. He's clearly "shot" (bullet deflected) in the First Class movie, as well as being IN the wheelchair at the end. As for Emma's story, there was a lot of confusion about the character thanks to the Wolverine: Origins movie. There's a young girl being held captive by Stryker ...

Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch are a special exception to the licensing of the Mutant portion of the Marvel universe to Fox. Due to them being mutants, but also being important Avengers, both companies retain partial rights to the characters. Fox can use them as mutants and children of Magneto. Marvel can use them as Avengers, but they can't mention ...

Legally, 20th Century Fox may object to the use of characters it is producing. So Marvel and Fox may both end up in suing soup due to some characters if one of them decides to sue the other. Though my opinion would be that both firms lawyers and management would negotiate the films and scripts to get a way out of this. Its just power play to get leverage ...

Currently Marvel doesn't have rights for X-men, Spider-man and Fantastic Four (or might be few more guys). So in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they can't mention any mutant (X-men) till they got permission from Fox, which doesn't seems possible for now as Fox isn't going to share the mutants with Marvel. With one exception that Marvel has rights to a few ...

For the case of X-Men: First Class According to lee's Twitter page, due to the filming taking place to far away he won't have a cameo in it.(Source:marvelousnews.com) For the case of X2: X-Men United Scooper 'Kailem' tells us that Stan Lee was interviewed on the "Filmfreak" radio station when he mentioned he will not have a cameo in X2... ...

Why not? As you mentioned he got remembered Striker's experiment in X2. The same time he may also have remembered all part of his lost memory or triggered some regeneration of lost brain cells process (IMAHO he is a mutant with re-generating capability). Fox was already starting fixing their continuity problems before The Wolverine, so it's not a ...

When the first X-men film was made (and with it, some would argue, the birth of the modern age SuperGenre) there was very little to establish a conflict of interest: in fact quite the opposite. Lee was probably very happy that Marvel Characters were being transferred to the big screen. As time has passed, and Movie Studios began to realize how lucrative ...

From wiki- Goldman added the film was kind of an "alternate history" for the X-Men, saying that while rebooting the writers did not want to go fully "against the canon of the X-Men trilogy", comparing to the various approaches the comic had in over fifty years of publication. This lines from wiki says that they want to start fresh, not fully ...
