Cinematic Universe Episode 5: X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Cinematic Universe Episode 5: X-Men Origins: Wolverine
In the latest episode of the comic book movie podcast, in association with FilmDivider.com, PanelBeats editors Seb and James join host Joe Cunningham to try and discover if there's any merit in the 2009 disastro-flop X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and recommend some associated reading along the way.

There's also time for news discussion of the Valiant licensing deal, the Powers TV show's online debut and Agents of SHIELD dropping off a cliff; while the guys also explain to Joe the difference between Namor and Aquaman, and pitch to him their ideas for a "fresh take on a superhero origin we've already seen done".

And here are the links to buy the comics we recommend (spoilers!) at the end of the episode:

Seb's Pick: Origin by Bill Jemas, Joe Quesada, Paul Jenkins and Andy Kubert
Comixology (Digital) / Amazon (Print)

James' Pick: Wolverine vol. 2 #10 by Chris Claremont and John Buscema
Comixology (Digital)

Bonus Deadpool Pick: Deadpool vol. 1 #1 by Joe Kelly et al
Comixology (Digital)

In next week's minisode Joe will discuss those comics and round up the news; then the following week the full podcast will return with an episode discussing a film based on one of the most important comics of all time, yet which James still hasn't actually seen yet...
