EXCLUSIVE: Hugh Jackman Looking Grizzly On "Yukon" Set Of THE WOLVERINE

ComicBookMovie.com has the first look at Hugh Jackman sporting long unkempt hair, and a raggedy beard for his role of Logan in The Wolverine. Also, check out set photos of Picton covered in fake snow so that it resembles a small town in the Canadian Rockies.

The other day I was informed by my source that Hugh Jackman's character Wolverine/Logan will be headed into town to buy camping gear. As you can see in the set photos below an old hardware shop in Picton has been converted into a hiking/camping shop. Also, a bar will be featured in the movie, that is why you will see a mural of a moose promoting "Ed's Bar."

Why is this important? What does it mean? Well a savvy CBM user pointed out that this could be scenes emulating the beginning of Frank Miller's "Japanese Saga" in "Wolverine #1." In that version of the tale Wolverine/Logan is seen in the Canadian Rockies pursuing a man-eating grizzly bear. During the eventual confrontation Wolverine notices that the bear has an arrow lodged in it's back. A closer examination reveals that the tip of the arrow had traces of poison and is the cause of the bear's erratic behavior.

Wolverine then seeks out the hunter responsible by picking up his scent at the bear's cave. That leads him to a local pub, "Josie's Bar 'N' Grill," where Wolverine identifies the hunter and a one-sided fight incurs.

Jackman appeared shortly after 11am to the sound of Ted Nugent’s epic Cat Scratch Fever. The star emerged through the doors of the town’s old hardware store as a group of hunters loaded their pick-up truck with bags and rifles, while drinking beer and revving each other up. Then he did it again ... and again. The scene was shot half-a-dozen times and the hype grew as people climbed on rooftops to catch a glimpse of Jackman. - wollondillyadvertiser

In the fourth pic it looks like long hair
nailbiter111 - 8/2/2012, 8:09 PM
I think you're right about the long hair.
DeadManDann - 8/2/2012, 8:10 PM
The sign says 'The Yukon.' Doesn't seem to be Alaska. Also read some news earlier that confirmed the Yukon as the actual location.
Swarley - 8/2/2012, 8:10 PM
Just something in the background. Looks interesting
Anthrax - 8/2/2012, 8:12 PM
really cant tell with the hoodie
FoxForce5 - 8/2/2012, 8:13 PM
Yeah, looks like it's supposed to be Canada not Alaska.
nailbiter111 - 8/2/2012, 8:14 PM
holy shit, deadman you're right. i'll go change that.
santoanderson - 8/2/2012, 8:18 PM
Does anyone want this film?
nailbiter111 - 8/2/2012, 8:21 PM
I want this film. film starts with an A-bomb explosion...awesome sauce, then wolverine fights a bear...double awesome, and that's just the beginning of the film. from there on it's all about the japanese saga, yes sign me up.
Giznad - 8/2/2012, 8:21 PM
when he's getting out of that car, that goofy face is funny.
kevberg - 8/2/2012, 8:22 PM
Yeah they do . don't be a wiseass.
Giznad - 8/2/2012, 8:22 PM
it's ALL about the bear, dude. Marvel Comics Presents was my FAVORITE Wolvie. Sam Kieth, son!
blackscienceman - 8/2/2012, 8:25 PM
wow he's really showing his age.. ahh the marvels of modern technology... see what i did there?
nailbiter111 - 8/2/2012, 8:26 PM
Splenda - yeah we can't get that actor's name right because of the site's precautionary settings. i think it's funny so i keep it in there.
ClarkFarley2012 - 8/2/2012, 8:27 PM
I think this is going to be way better than the first.
DZ123 - 8/2/2012, 8:28 PM
Insert furry joke here.
kevberg - 8/2/2012, 8:28 PM
I 'd rather see this than that peice of dog feces, TED. Thats money i can't get back.

Its Seth Mcfarlane same feriggin' formula like all his shows-- A main character that befriends a talking Id ...a dog, bear, alien etc + add sexual jokes and random situations and sprinkle in a random drawn out fight scene..for flavor add everyone from his shows making cameo's....repeat ad nauseum.
kevberg - 8/2/2012, 8:32 PM
yeah... i went off the track, .... hope Hugh redeems himself. I think the guy is awesome to the CBM community.
ImJustTheBassPlayer - 8/2/2012, 8:38 PM
It would be pretty awesome if he fought a grizzly in this.
KingNTheKong - 8/2/2012, 8:43 PM
GOD DAMN. That joke was BADman.

See what I did there?BAD JOKES ALL AROUND
thalidomide - 8/2/2012, 9:05 PM
hmmmm, so they're referencing some scenes from the comic book huh? Ok I'm a little interested right now.
TheBigBoss917 - 8/2/2012, 9:14 PM
This seems a little picky but Hugh is starting to look pretty old compared to the wolvie we got in the first x men given this is a prequel
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 8/2/2012, 9:14 PM

Bodwulf - 8/2/2012, 9:25 PM
Glad they kept those log trucks Wolvie and Sabertooth battled on in the first Wolverine movie. It is like the old folks that made it through the Great Depression told us . "Don't throw away anything, you never know when you might need it."
CoolantTech - 8/2/2012, 10:02 PM
Sanderman - 8/2/2012, 10:36 PM
So far its sounding pretty good
nailbiter111 - 8/2/2012, 10:40 PM
is anyone having problems seeing all of the images?
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 8/2/2012, 10:48 PM
@nail Yeah, the 4th pic.
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 8/2/2012, 11:11 PM
nailbiter111 - 8/2/2012, 11:13 PM
peppy - are you gonna visit the set?
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 8/2/2012, 11:36 PM
fosterine - 8/2/2012, 11:40 PM
how do you post pics on the comments?
CommanderJim - 8/2/2012, 11:44 PM
Hey all, Im from Picton (been watching all the goings on with much excitement!). I dont know if its been reported but theres Canadian Police cars being used in the filming, so I really dont think Picton is standing in for Alaska. It has to be the Yukon.

Something else that doesnt seem to have been reported was the filming last Friday by the same crew in the nearby town of Thirlmere. The town has a steam train museum and closed train line. The crew was filming around the station and filming one of the trains. So possibly WW2 era shooting?
nailbiter111 - 8/2/2012, 11:52 PM
Thanks for the info CommanderJim. hear anything else email me at nailbiter111@yahoo.com
nailbiter111 - 8/2/2012, 11:55 PM
fosterine - easiest way to learn is find a pic in any article. say this one drag your arrow over it so it becomes highlighted, then right click, then choose "view selection source." you'll see the html code for the image, just replace the http/url with the url of the image you want to use. copy and paste the code. bam you're done.
fosterine - 8/2/2012, 11:58 PM
thanks nailbiter111
CommanderJim - 8/3/2012, 12:09 AM
Will do nailbiter. Here's a photo of the police car on the set I took last night. Is it a 90's model?
TheSoulEater - 8/3/2012, 12:12 AM

nailbiter111 - 8/3/2012, 12:13 AM
CommanderJim - do you know anyone that took pics when they were at thirlmere? i can't find anything on it.
