New Image From THE WOLVERINE Released

"The past is always behind you, but the memories still remain." 20th Century Fox have released this new photo from James Mangold's The Wolverine. Described as a "Japanese noir picture with tentpole action", the film once again features Hugh Jackman as the title character...

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.




Directed by James Mangold and starring Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tao Okamoto and Svetlana Khodchenkova, The Wolverine is set to hit theatres on July 26, 2013.

Meh, give something besides all of these shots of him in a suit.
Bandrews1 - 2/20/2013, 4:08 PM

Could be a badass movie "COULD BE"

Japanese Noir? Oh really? I bet the filmmakers have never seen a true Japanese Noir in their lives...they just like to throw around the word Noir because it's acquired an ignorant, fan-boy meaning of equating the term with Dark and Cool...bullshit. And "with tentpole action?" That's a retarded phrase. It's like saying "with a 3-act structure for the plot!" aderderder.

[frick] yeah!!! what a [frick]ing awesome reveal... it's another suit. just look at that [frick]ing bad boy, sawwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeet!!!!

lmao... 10 years playing this character and thats the best suit they can come up with for the Wolverine. They've wasted a good 10 years of bullishting.
UltimateTypeface - 2/20/2013, 4:14 PM
He must get poisoned or something??

A few swords arnt going to bother Wolvie.

"More powerfull than ever???" - maybe he becomes Captain universe!
IIIAdamantiumIII - 2/20/2013, 4:18 PM
"you said there was a suit for me in here" *shinnnnnk*
ahhmynuts - 2/20/2013, 4:18 PM
one of the best superhero castings ever, behind Robert downey jr. henry cavill potentially can take that spot tho so watch out hugh lol
IIIAdamantiumIII - 2/20/2013, 4:20 PM
and the closest thing to his iconic suit was in x-3 *sigh*
SpectacularJoShFest - 2/20/2013, 4:20 PM
OMG IS THAT AN ARMANi SUIT!?? I wonder where he got it.This movie looks so awesome...Armani suits rock and everysuperhero movie should have its protagonist wearing armani suits and not their original suits.No brainer.This movie is shaping up to be a FABULOUS movie.
In all resiousness,I do hope this movie will be good but that suit is shit. And he appears,apparently, in too many scenes wearing it.
LOL - 2/20/2013, 4:20 PM
Wolverine/Logan is one of those characters that I don't care if he was in costume or not. He's still one bad mofo no matter what he wears because he's the best at what he does and what he does isn't nice...

Also, back in the day, he was more comfortable out of costume than he was in it. He doesn't need a damn costume to define who he is. Yes, he's had a lot of iconic outfits over the years, but he's also one of the few who is just as iconic without a spandex type getup.
shamo - 2/20/2013, 4:22 PM
amazing shot. can't wait.
HelaGood - 2/20/2013, 4:23 PM
i agree with the older the better comments!
marvel72 - 2/20/2013, 4:27 PM
come on mangold release something juicy or better still bloody.
IIIAdamantiumIII - 2/20/2013, 4:28 PM
@ LEVITIKUZ BECAUSE! lol

It makes the character complete . You can't have a Batman film where he never wears his iconic suit/mask. You can't have a spider-man film where he never wears his iconic suit/mask. The list goes on and on .

In a way its very insulting to fans when such iconic characters are misrepresented.
Jollem - 2/20/2013, 4:32 PM
rdjr. is good as HIS version of tony. not so much the comic version. same with hemsworth

chiklis as thing and urban as dredd and tobey as 60's spider-man are WAY better, for some examples
Mothchild - 2/20/2013, 4:34 PM
It could be a kimono
ScottMontgomery - 2/20/2013, 4:35 PM
I just want a teaser trailer!!! Is that to much to ask?
TheBeard - 2/20/2013, 4:37 PM
A horriable thought just crossed my mind. What if FOX in all their infinite [frick]ing wisdom deceided to give the Silver Samurai that dumb ass sword that can kill a mutant with a healing factor.
TheAbomination - 2/20/2013, 4:40 PM
**crosses fingers for this film to be rated R**
JDUKE25 - 2/20/2013, 4:41 PM
@LEV
Marqy47 - 2/20/2013, 4:43 PM
I do agree that he looks cooler as Wolverine now that he is older
jimoakley666 - 2/20/2013, 4:43 PM
Cool photo. Really looking forward to this movie.
DanteSparda - 2/20/2013, 4:48 PM
Dat Wolverine! That pic is truly badass!! New background worth.

@IIIAdamantiumIII

Altought I would love to see him in costume too you have to admit that Logan's bare face is as iconic as his classic costume, it's one of the most recognoscible faces in comicbooks history and so far there hasn't been a strong reason for him to use a special costume with a mask in movies.

@darthdanimal

LOL!! It's you who don't know what a noir film is, it's a stylish and crude crime movie and the plot of The Wolverine it's just about that you moron.
ahhmynuts - 2/20/2013, 4:48 PM
@jollem
wtf then whats the comic version? theres no depth in that comic guy rdj brought iron man to life you ignorant fool. tobey was awesome but where's he now? plus after the first spider man movie it all went downhill. rdj keeps getting better and it looks like iron man 3 is going to be the best of the series. dont even compare someone with his own franchise to a supporting character. urban was awesome too but again...not even close dude.
faver - 2/20/2013, 4:55 PM
@IIIAdamantiumIII

I disagree. The costume is a defining part of Batman and Spiderman, but it isn't the same for Wolverine. Some mutants maybe; Magneto's helmet is a defining visual for the character, but I don't think it applies to all the mutants. I'll take good characterization over costumes any day.
0bstreperous - 2/20/2013, 4:56 PM
Here's hoping but if they had something worth showing by now....
CaptainProg - 2/20/2013, 5:01 PM
Suit or GTFO!
Nemeres - 2/20/2013, 5:02 PM
Rocketto?
DeadManDann - 2/20/2013, 5:05 PM
@LOL

Absolutely agree. Characters like Spider-Man need their costume, but it's not the same for Wolverine.
marvel72 - 2/20/2013, 5:10 PM
the costume would work.......

gambgel - 2/20/2013, 5:11 PM
all these Perfurme for men shots are nice

but would be nice to see something more exciting
RamonSuarez - 2/20/2013, 5:12 PM
I am tired of Jackman.

I wanted another actor to play a more feral, berserk Logan.

But whatever, lets see how they approach this film.
