(Newser) – Even Wolverine isn’t safe from swine flu. The X-Men Origins film's Thursday launch is being delayed in Mexico City since most of the theaters will likely be closed, Variety reports. Major theater operators have already shut down following a request from the mayor, and the rest are expected to follow suit. A new release date will be announced when Fox has a better idea of when theaters will reopen.
