Hugh Jackman Pops Claws in New Photo From The Wolverine
The Wolverine is coming. Hugh Jackman’s second crack at a solo film for the adamantium-laced mutant hits theaters on July 26, just a few short weeks away — and the marketing folks at 20th Century Fox are starting to close the gap with new trailers, photos, featurettes and more.
Today brings one such new photo, featuring Jackman in character as the fast-healing antihero, claws popped and ready for action. The photo is accompanied by the following quote from the actor: “More than ever before you get a definitive look at this character and what makes him who he is.”
Taking its cues from Chris Claremont and Frank Miller’s epic comic book run, The Wolverine puts Logan in Japan, on a collision course with a man from his past who promises the impossible: he can take away Logan’s seemingly eternal life.
Directed by James Mangold, The Wolverine is Jackman’s sixth on-screen appearance as Logan; he’ll reprise the role for a seventh time in next summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, directed by Bryan Singer.
