Hugh Jackman broods on the new poster for The Wolverine
Even though X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE wasn’t quite the superhero movie I wanted it to be, I’m still holding out hope that we’re going to see a great Wolverine movie some time before Hugh Jackman hangs up the claws for good. So far, everything I’ve heard and seen from THE WOLVERINE gives me hope that director James Mangold can get it right. I’m still a little bitter about what he did with Tom Cruise in KNIGHT AND DAY, but the guy did direct some good films, such as 3:10 TO YUMA, WALK THE LINE and GIRL, INTERRUPTED. And yeah, none of those are exactly superhero films, but we could use a more dramatic Wolverine than what we had in Origins.
THE WOLVERINE stars Hugh Jackman, Brian Tee, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Rila Fukushima and James Fraser. The James Mangold directed film is set to open in theaters on July 26th, 2013. Check out the poster below, which has a shirtless Hugh Jackman brooding over the bright lights of the city below.
