Wolverine As Told By Woody Allen Is Arguably Better


We can hardly imagine two more distinct genres than the quintessential Woody Allen and your standard superhero flick. But, as it turns out, they actually go great together. All Woody's neuroses and self-loathing are a perfect match for the psychological burden of alienation brought on by having a super power. This is clearly illustrated by the Official Comedy reimagining of Wolverine as told through Allen's eyes. Just like Wolverine did when he accidentally murdered Jean Grey, Allen's characters sabotage their own relationships. The only difference is that one is played by a hulking he-man by the name of Hugh Jackman, and the other probably weighs about 100 pounds soaking wet. Still, though. Marvel should really think about on-boarding NYC's favorite director for a future franchise.
