It would have made a lot of sense for 20th Century Fox to attach the first trailer for James Mangold‘s The Wolverine to this weekend’s A Good Day To Die Hard. Not only is the same studio releasing both movies, they are also both being aimed at the same demographic and the timeline fits perfectly (with the superhero flick due in theaters on July 26th). And yet it looks as though we won’t be getting our first look at The Wolverine for more than a month.
Earlier today rumors sprouted that we would be getting a first-look trailer at the new comic book movie tomorrow, February 12th, however, Mangold has taken to his Twitter account to announce not only that the rumors were false, but that the trailer would be released in late March. Following the director’s response, Coming Soon reported that the preview would be attached to G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which will be in theaters on March 29th.
Responding to complaints that the wait for the first-look was so long, Mangold said on the social networking site, “Tell me you think we’re lame after you see the teaser. At least then you will be critiquing images from the film, not a marketing window. From end of March till release, you’ll be saturated. Relax, yuk. I’ve never found the coolest people are the first to arrive at a party.”
