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
