  1. I LOVE that Wolverine is just a Jackman portrait. That's freaking awesome bub.

  2. It's not accurate though.

    Young Wolverine was played by Troye Sivan in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, even if most of us would like to forget it ever existed.

    And talking of films we would like to forget, isn't Catwoman a little too white?

  3. to be honest I am ok with them leaving off child actors playing the young version of anyone. The issue there is it would skew the composite far to much due to the shear size variance.

    Keeping it to adults is fine.

  4. I quite agree given most superhero movies involve origin stories (one more time!) Adding lots of child actors in (with different facial ratios) would quickly reach manga-super-deformed levels and breach the uncanny valley.

    @the_borderer's other point about the amalgam skin tone of Catwoman is still valid, and deserves a signal boost.
    Seven actors have played Catwoman, live-action. No Halle Berry? No Eartha Kitt?
