New Behind The Scenes Production Tweet From THE WOLVERINE

Production tweets from comic book movie directors are all the rage these days. Yesterday, it was Bryan Singer teasing Days of Future Past and today we have production tweets from James Mangold's The Wolverine.

Follow Mark:
By Mark Julian - 5/14/2013




The trailer reveals that a lot of action takes place at the Yashida Compound, which is a slight departure from the original story told by comic book writer Chris Claremont. The trailer revealed that the Compound is very large and also has a section comprised entirely of scientific laboratories.






An interesting tweet, as we have three characters listed as playing Yashida, Yamanouchi, Hiroyuki Sanada and Ken Yamamura. We know there's a flashback involved with Wolverine and Yashida but why three actors to play the same character? Examining the actors, there appears to be an elderly, middle-aged and young Yashida in the film.






For those of you really into movie scores, were you keen on the score used in the first trailer?

Spinning out of the events of X-Men: The Last Stand, Logan (Hugh Jackman) travels to Japan where he falls for the beautiful Mariko Yashida (Tao Okamoto) to the grave displeasure of her father Yashida (Hal Yamanouchi) and her half-brother, the fearsome Silver Samurai (Will Yun Lee). But this isn't Logan's first trip to the Land of the Rising Sun or his first encounter with the Yashida clan. Based on a screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Valkyrie) and Mark Bomback (Live Free or Die Hard, Total Recall )and the comic book by Frank Miller and Chris Claremont.

Either gonna suck really bad or be really good. Man I fear they've totally ruined my favorite Marvel story ever.
LMFA0 - 5/14/2013, 8:28 AM
Yeah this movie lost my interest after the set pictures and horrible trailer. Not only that but I really am sick and tired of them not putting him in some sort of costume, as stupid as that sounds. BUT that's part of his character! And I think if it was done right it would be awesome! It's not like, at this point, that people don't already know that Jackman is playing him, so why not at least put a mask on him? Either way, I'm not going to see it. Maybe a redbox, maybe

@JayOh Don't worry, take comfort knowing that yes, they did ruin ruin your favorite Marvel story ever.

Adamantium > Iron or Steel.

score was epic. not as good as MoS but definiately epic. looking forward to this movie alot though. at the very least, i hope its not as big of a dissapointment as that shitty IM3.

Looks like they're shooting some b-roll. Haha

I'm cautiously optimistic for this one. Wolverine is one o my favorite characters and I'm interested to see how they address him losin his healing powers and usin his claws and then walking around bleeding from between his knuckles all the time. (Seriously) add to that the bloody claws pic and I'm hoping to get an R rating. Well see I guess...

My most anticipated CBM. Can. Not. Wait.

2013 end results

Elysium>MOS>Wolverine>ST:ID>Thor>IronMan3




jerryblake - 5/14/2013, 8:52 AM
High hopes that The Wolverine will end up at second place.
TheBoss117 - 5/14/2013, 8:59 AM
@jerryblake.....there's something REAL creepy about that pic lol!
jerryblake - 5/14/2013, 9:01 AM
it's like he was having a rash or something :)
JohnLamb - 5/14/2013, 9:03 AM
Please let this be good. Please!!!
SCURVYDOG619 - 5/14/2013, 9:04 AM
They are not referring to the elder Yashida as Lord Shingen?

Huh....
DVonShakari - 5/14/2013, 9:08 AM
Wolverine's wife beater shirt iiisss his costume. It's cheap and easily replaced. And he's wearing what?...corduroy pants? Now THAT'S a costume...one that anyone can afford for Halloween. tape a few butter knives between your knuckles and there ya go...who doesn't own butter knives? You can get em with any value meal from KFC.
MrMartinMarvel - 5/14/2013, 9:16 AM
The people anticipating this are insane.
jerryblake - 5/14/2013, 9:19 AM
Gusto wears a wife beater. Ironically, his wife always beat the shit out of him.
ScabbyJ - 5/14/2013, 9:32 AM
How uncomfortable does that bed look? Definitely at a sleep number of 45.
jerryblake - 5/14/2013, 9:32 AM
next time just give her the money ... don't argue :(
DVonShakari - 5/14/2013, 9:48 AM
In Wolverine's 2nd solo movie...he loses his powers much like Superman 2 and Spider-Man 2....or what happened to Thor in his movie...but after some hard work and reflecting and appreciating the better things in life...the hero rises and finds a way to get those powers back...either using some sort of device or realizing that they never really lost it at all....
jerryblake - 5/14/2013, 9:49 AM
And tried to chock him with american flag ... Welcome to Detroit :)
jerryblake - 5/14/2013, 10:00 AM
*choke. sorry

Keep forgetting about this movie. Maybe it will be a surprise hit. But it's mos def off my radar.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 5/14/2013, 10:44 AM
FOr the people bitching that they are still filming. X2 wasn't done until a month before its release and The Dark Knight was still in production in June before its July release. Some movies take a little longer. I really think this is going to be the surprise hit of the summer. It might be a little artsy (based on Mangolds influences) for the average movie goers taste, but I think comic book fans will be pleased
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 5/14/2013, 10:44 AM
Or maybe these are old pics and he's just tweeting them out now.
exe - 5/14/2013, 11:08 AM
Already looking better than Iron Turd 3.
NeoBaggins - 5/14/2013, 11:40 AM
@exe That's not fair. EVERY CBM is looking better than that.
DanteSparda - 5/14/2013, 12:27 PM
@Nomis

The wheel of fate is turning.
exe - 5/14/2013, 1:39 PM
