* This is more for the series in general, but this movie does involve Wolverine's love for Jean Grey, so I might as well bring it up here. In the comics, Logan and Jean were teammates and friends for years, so it makes sense for Logan to have some strong feelings for her. In the movies, Logan met Jean in the first X-Men movie, which took place over the span of about a week. At the end of the first movie, he takes Cyke's motorcycle and drives away, not returning until the second movie. The second movie also takes place over the span of about a week (and there is a day or two in which Wolverine and Jean are in two different areas) and then Jean dies. In this movie, we see that he still dreams about her years later and is deeply in love. Why? If you take all the time he spent with Jean, you'd end up with about half a month. Most of that time was spent dealing with fighting super villains so they never got to know each other that much. There's little reason why Wolverine would regard her as anyone other than an attractive woman he went on a couple of missions with.

* How can you ingest a metal spider, and then have it rip through your body and latch itself to your heart, all without noticing or feeling it?
* If Viper drugged Logan enough to have him ingest the metal spider, what was stopping her from stabbing him with the paralysing poison, putting the manacles on him there and then, and proceeding with extraction?

**** In X3, we see the guy and there was no mention of him being a twin. I think they even gave a name.



** Perhaps the blade has been replaced over the ages.

** He doesn't have to be told -- he just has to have heard and listened to rumors, which would've spread like wildfire about the American superweapon. Also remember that part of the reasons the US was so intent on the A-Bomb is because the Germans were working on it too. So if Logan knew about that, and heard about an American superweapon that took Hiroshima off the map, it's a logical conclusion. Particularly since the US did go out of its way to warn Japan about the bombs and what they could do before dropping them.

** How did Logan even know what an atomic bomb was? Sure, Nagasaki was the site of the second bombing, but it's not as if a prisoner would have been told about Hiroshima being mysteriously destroyed by a single bomb a couple of days ago. Nor is there any plausible way Logan would've had prior knowledge of the Manhattan Project.

Certainly a single B-29 flying overhead instead of a formation of them is unusual, but there's no way he should've known how devastating the impending attack would be.

* Given that having retractable claws is an inherent trait for Logan, it would make sense for his hands and forearms to be biologically adapted to extend and retract them without causing damage in the process.

** [[spoiler: The Yashida company was in the edges of bankrupcy due Ichiro's obsession with immortality (adamantium armors and fancy healing-destroying tech are very expensive things), by faking his death, Ichiro essentially set up his granddaughter to take the fall for the company's ruin and he would escape free to enjoy his immortality.]]

** [[spoiler: People probably wouldn't react to well, if suddenly a man in his 20s appeared and claimed to be "the old man that owns this company". Much less hassle to let his granddaughter officially take over business and control her from the shadows.]]

** We don't see a lot of blood coming out of his neck after she uses the pen, so it probably didn't hit an artery.



* Yukio describes Yashida's sword as "...hundreds of years old." Is it possible for a sword that old to look that pristine, especially if it spends that time being used in battle? Even if the blade was kept well oiled to protect it from rusting, how much of it would be left after being blunted, chipped, and resharpened in battle after battle for centuries?

* I have so many questions as to why Logan was in Nagasaki when the atomic bomb was dropped. We saw him and Victor at D-Day during the opening montage of XMenOriginsWolverine. D-Day was June 6th, 1944 and the A-bomb was dropped on August 9th, 1945. So in the course of a year Logan went from the European theater to the Pacific theater without Victor and was somehow captured?

** Also, judging from the look we get at the skylight, the roof of the train is thick enough that his claws (and the Yakuza thugs' knives) simply don't get all the way through to pierce the ceiling of the passenger compartment.
