Earlier today the Illawarra Mercury had spoken with with a member of the Wollondilly Shire Council that confirmed The Wolverine would be filming at an old hardware shop and Wollondilly Shire Hall. Streets will be shutdown beginning at noon on Thursday til 6am Saturday. The spokeswoman did not provide any details.

Southern Highland News is relaying news from Wollondilly Advertiser's reporter Michael Cox who has learned that snow is being trucked in to the town and will be scattered upon rooftops and roads. The set will be made to resemble snow covered Alaska.

I've been told by my source that Hugh Jackman will be filming scenes in which his character, Logan, heads into a small Alaskan town and purchases goods from a store that sells camping gear. Logan will also have scenes that take place in the front and back of a local bar.

I also did some digging and came across this message on the Wollondilly Library's facebook page.
Finally! A literary character is coming to Picton, Wolverine no less…Oh who am I kidding, Hugh Jackman is coming to Picton!!! Scenes from ‘The Wolverine’ film are being shot right here in front of the Library building from the 2nd to 4th August. We are expecting that the urge to visit the library will be HUGH.

Oh good your town can be not-remembered for another reason; crappy CBM.
DrDoom - 8/1/2012, 3:20 AM
Couldn't even bother to actually come to Canada, could you, Wolvie?
MitchConner - 8/1/2012, 3:21 AM
I wouldn't brag about Hugh Jackman coming to my town...if anything I would try to convince him not to come. Lol
RamonSuarez - 8/1/2012, 3:21 AM
Sounds stupid.

[frick] this movie.
MitchConner - 8/1/2012, 3:23 AM
Nothing to see here Hugh Jackman...take your bad haircut somewhere else...reboot Wolverine!
incrediblesuperbatspider - 8/1/2012, 3:26 AM
Wow, so much hate for Hugh Jackman in the comments. I think Jackman owns Wolverine, please remindkevin, tell us, who would you cast as Wolverine?
nailbiter111 - 8/1/2012, 3:37 AM
i think hugh jackman is a very good wolverine for what he's been given to work with. it's not his fault his character isn't comic book accurate.
HannibalKing - 8/1/2012, 3:52 AM
If there is even the slighest mention of Alpha Flight in this movie I will freak-out.
jimoakley666 - 8/1/2012, 3:56 AM
Wait a second... sniff sniff... I smell a troll.

Really looking forward to seeing this film. Hopefully more a First Class than an Origins.
GUNSMITH - 8/1/2012, 4:14 AM
COSTUME...PLEASE!
MitchConner - 8/1/2012, 4:15 AM
Yea dude, Jackman was a good Wolverine, but it's played out...I think the first 15 in XOW was great, but he's been the guy for 4 movies...I'm actually over all of the XMen stuff from the original trilogy...I'd rather a new Wolverind be introduced through First Class...and the guy I'd get to play him would be: Mitch Conner
AmazingFantasy - 8/1/2012, 4:21 AM
Lmao @Hugh Wolverine haters. Lets see you become Wolverine with the hair, muscles and grin. He [frick]ing owns.



So what if he isn't a stumpy midget with a spandex suit? He looks silly in spandex, besides he is hairy what else do you want? He at least wears a suit here:



Bitches keep crying, see if you can get a better Wolverine that that.


TheAcidSkull - 8/1/2012, 4:28 AM
just because the movie was bad does not mean that the actor is bad, i love jackman, i can't see anyone playing wolverine other than him
jj2112 - 8/1/2012, 4:37 AM
Yawn... So this Wolverine has a healing factor... But no anti-aging factor.
MitchConner - 8/1/2012, 4:49 AM
@jj2112 exactly...this is a character that doesn't age, so why does he look 10 years older as we move further back into history? There are a lot of characters that don't have to be portrayed with that in mind, but Wolvie is one of those that is singled out for that power...
ralfinader - 8/1/2012, 5:03 AM
Maybe the beginning of the mini-series, when he has to take down the wounded grizzly, and then goes after the hunter that left it wounded?

Len Wein, co-creator of Wolverine, said: "When I got my first glimpse of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, my breath caught. In that single instant, he was Wolverine."
Who presume to know this character better than his creator? Just a jerk pan a movie never seen because even finished shooting, literally not-out-yet and stop to blame Jackman if a movie does not work, he's the only good thing about X-Men movies. In fact the only thing people remember about First Class, is... his cameo.
UltimateSpiderman - 8/1/2012, 5:16 AM
It's James Mangold's Wolverine not Hugh Jackman's.

R-tard.
AlexDeLarge87 - 8/1/2012, 6:06 AM
Blame Fox not Jackman.

@remindkevin
__ Dude, Jackman is one of the few guys that got "it" about these movies . Not last year, not 4 years ago but back in 1999. he was constantly worried about getting the character as faithful as they could.
Long before the Avengers guys and Batman begins, Jackman was worried about LOOKING the part , he constantly was getting bigger for the role.
Hes' done far and above what he could on his end to make this character as best he could.

That being said, I do think this movie is do or die time. He has to deliver on this one or its time to reboot. If he really had a great script and ideas from Darren Arnofsky, I'd keep those and use it in this. Its gotta be a fantastic one.
kevberg - 8/1/2012, 6:12 AM
BUT...If Tom Rothman ( Fox big wig ) sticks his nose in this one like he did in the last one, then its doomed for failure.

I used to not beleive that , but more and more ...especially like the last one where he went in and changed things behind the directors back, I agree that guy will sink the ship.
Cosmic1 - 8/1/2012, 6:39 AM
Obviously besides all the CBM geeks the movie going public likes him as wolverine enough to keep The franchise going and these are the same people who grew up watching him on cartoons that don't have the same look or feel to the comics, a lot of his fans probably never opened a comic, but remember him from cartoons and obviously the first one performed well enough to justify the sequel. Face it if CBM's relied on the geeks alone none would ever have sequals and the genre would probably be dead. The cartoons kids grew up watching is what have made these movies so successful.
ralfinader - 8/1/2012, 7:01 AM
I think Jackman is the right guy for Wolvie right now. He has a love for the charactor and as was said above, was the best part of every X-Men movie to date (including First Ass). The only thing holding Wolverine back from total awesomeness has been the behind the camera folk, not Jackman. Hope this one is a redeemer for the last three lackluster (if not outright sucky) X-Men movie entries.

PICTON IS THE NEXT TOWN OVER FROM WHERE I LIVE :-)
AlibiBreakfast - 8/1/2012, 7:12 AM
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who know Fox can't make comic book movies worth a damn and those who are in denial about it.
vermillion - 8/1/2012, 7:21 AM
This movie might just turn out good. I'll remain optimistic about it.

Hugh Jackman talked about wanting to do the Japan storyline for years, glad it's finally happening.
nailbiter111 - 8/1/2012, 7:46 AM
BatOnTheBrain - get me some pictures!
nailbiter111 - 8/1/2012, 7:48 AM
ELgUaSoN - Nice Find!
MitchConner - 8/1/2012, 7:49 AM
Dudes, just having fun making jokes...obviously I want any CBM to be epic...I think that XOW was decent...I'm just kind of tired of Jackman playing him...but if he nails it no one would be happier...than Mitch Conner
marvel72 - 8/1/2012, 8:03 AM
as long as its better than the first,i'll give it a chance.
jimoakley666 - 8/1/2012, 8:03 AM
Jackman is FANTASTIC as Wolverine. I seriously cannot imagine anyone else playing the character any time soon. With each new film he looks more and more the part too. Wolverine is supposed to look like he's in his 40's.

I hope this does indicate the bear fight. The problem with XOW was that they didn't just make a movie version of Barry Windsor Smith's Weapon X. There was no pain, trauma or drama in that movie. Let's hope this makes up for it.

And with Mangold directing, it could be. He directed Cop Land, after all. Anyone who hasn't seen it should check it out. It's a beautiful career high movie.

@ELgUaSoN

Thats the first thing I tought when reading Wolverine was heading to Alaska, the opening scene of Claremont/Miller Japan saga, I'm glad we got this scene in the movie, because it tells a lot of Wolverine hunter skills, feral instincts and code of honor.

Also I'm glad there still people contributing something useful or interesting to the news, not like the trolls that keep copy/pasting their complaints in all the related topics, seriously you're just wasting space in the threads and in existence.
ralfinader - 8/1/2012, 8:40 AM
Had no idea Mangold directed Cop Land, love that flick.
ChubbyDeadpool - 8/1/2012, 9:26 AM
Dear Hollywood - Logan was born in the tiny island nation of Canada. Wolverine was a weapon created by a joint US/Canadian team in that same country. Canada. It has wilderness, too. Remember X-Men 1? Rogue met Logan in Ca-na-da. Origins? Ringing any bells for ya? If you're going to film in an entirely different hemisphere, then calling the General Store Alaskan or Canadian is pretty much just changing the writing on the screen that opens that scene.
Oh well, at least he's not shown with an Aussie accent, like in the Spider-Man cartoon of the 80's.
GUNSMITH - 8/1/2012, 9:30 AM
I'D LOVE TO SEE THE SUIT.

@ChubbyDeadpool: You fail so hard, read ELgUaSoN comments to know why he's in Alaska.
ChubbyDeadpool - 8/1/2012, 9:54 AM
so? we have bears in Canada, too
DanteSparda - 8/1/2012, 10:26 AM
@ChubbyDeadpool

LOL just don't worry about they changing Wolverine's origin, they are just making small changes to the source material.
Stumblin - 8/1/2012, 10:36 AM
So we got a decent director and mediocre screenplay writers, sounds familiar. Until I see some actual scenes I'm betting this will be another watered down plot with one dimensional characters and plot holes.
