Wolverine crashes the Hindenburg in unused X-Men storyboards

Though different comic arcs have given slightly different answers, there’s no arguing the fact that Wolverine was around a long, long time before he joined up with the X-Men. We got a peek at that history in the flick X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but we almost saw a lot more.

Some unused storyboards from the film have surfaced via artist Ricardo Delgado, who has revealed two storyboarded scenes that were apparently created for “marketing purposes" but cut from the eventual film.

The first scene would’ve focused on Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) back in 1937, where he is trying to steal a classified file while atop the airship Hindenburg. When things go sideways, Wolverine winds up slashing the blimp with his bone claws — and causing the famous crash.

The second scene is a little strange, and would’ve featured Sabretooth (Liev Schreiber) killing a (literal) wolverine. By that we mean the animal, not the mutant.

Check out the scenes below and let us know if you think they should’ve been included.
