First official photo of Hugh Jackman from ‘The Wolverine’ released

- September 24th, 2012

Following photos of a scruffy looking Hugh Jackman on the set of next summer’s The Wolverine, 20th Century Fox has released the first official image of jacked-up Hugh with his adamantium claws set to shred.

Due out July 26, 2013, The Wolverine has been an on-again, off-again project that was first supposed to be directed by Darren Aronofsky. Walk the Line director James Mangold took the reins in June 2011.

According to reports, The Wolverine will not be a direct sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

In an interview with Total Film magazine (via the Coventry Telegraph), Jackman said, “We’ve deliberately not called it Wolverine 2 because we want it to be placed and feel like a standalone picture.” (translation Origins sucked)

Set in Japan, The Wolverine has been adapted from a Frank Miller mini-series by Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Reacher) and Mark Bomback (24). The film, which also stars Will Yun Lee as the Silver Samurai and Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper, finds Logan confronting a figure from his past and a whole host of samurai.

Consider us interested.
