The next instalment in the X-Men series of films, The Wolverine, has been kept very under wraps. All we’ve seen so far is some pictures of a Japanese prisoner of war camp (in Australia) and a very hairy looking Hugh Jackman. However 20th Century Fox have released the first official photo of The Wolverine in all his adamantium awesomeness.
The Wolverine, directed by James Mangold (3:10 To Yuma), is based around the 1982 limited comic book series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller where Logan travels to Japan to engage a “mysterious figure from his past” (sound familiar?). This figure is Shingen Yashida played by Hiroyuki Sanada, a Yakuza crime boss.Hugh Jackman has spent a lot of time physically preparing for this role, taking advice from Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who suggested that he eat around 6000 calories a day. While Wolverine doesn’t look like he has been eating that much he is definitely looking as bad ass a ever. It is set to be released on July 26, 2013. [IGN]
