Continuity mistake: In the fight with the silver samurai, after Wolverine loses his claws from one hand, he takes a sword. Twice he goes to the ground, and in that shot there is no sword in his hand, then it appears again.

Factual error: In the Shinkansen fighting scene, the railway line is seen having color light signals along its way. But the Shinkansen uses a signalling system that doesn't involve the use of light signals at all.

Trivia: SPOILER! There is a mid credits scene that shows Logan going through airport security 2 years after the end of the movie, where he encounters Professor X and Magneto, who recruit him for a new mission that will be in the film X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Logan: I can do this all day, you twisted mutant bitch!

Yukio: You're a soldier, and you seek what all soldiers do.
Logan: and what's that?
Yukio: an honorable death, an end to your pain.

More quotes from The Wolverine


Question: Approximately what year is the film set? The adamantium would place it after the Origins film (which I believe to be set circa 1979) in which he loses most if not all of his memories. This begs the question, how is it that he remembers WWII and the atomic bomb?

Chosen answer: The chronology of the X-Men film series is, to put it mildly, somewhat screwed up. The first movie was released in 2000 and is described in an on-screen caption as being set in "The not too distant future", which isn't the most helpful statement, could be two years, could be ten years, who knows. The Wolverine is set about two years after the events of X-Men: The Last Stand, which is in turn about a year after the events of the first movie, so think about "the not too distant future", whatever that means, and add about three years onto that. This does mean that, yes, it is indeed set some decades after the events of the Origins movie, during which he lost his memories. It is, however, also set after a period during which he worked with Professor Xavier to regain some of his memories. It could therefore be suggested that Logan remembering his experience at Nagasaki represents that they had at least a partial success in recovering some of his memories.

Question: Was Logan's healing factor completely removed by Viper or just slowed down a lot? In the funeral fight scenes and on the train he was shot and stabbed multiple times, yet he was only slowed down. It seems if the healing factor was at 0% he would have bled to death right after. (Especially after a shotgun blast to the abdomen at point blank range) And is the healing factor back at 100% now even after the grandfather sucked a bunch of it out?

Chosen answer: The healing factor was only reduced. Like you said, had it been removed he would have bled to death and every time he used his claws he would be bleeding from his hands. It is not revealed if it is at full strength at the end of the film, but it is likely it will return to full strength over time.

Question: The scene with the bear, the hunter in the bar, and the poisoned arrows was taken from a particular comic book. Anyone know which one?

Arokthis

Chosen answer: It was the first issue of the Wolverine comic, the 1982 limited series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller.
