Hugh Jackman talks things over with James Mangold in new images from The Wolverine
When I read things about the Marvel and Fox spat over Quicksilver, I’m reminded how great it would be if Marvel still owned the X-Men franchise. If we count five films (X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE being the fifth), Fox has managed to make three good X-Men movies and two awful ones. It’s not a horrible record, but the character that most deserves some love and care is Wolverine. I can’t help but thing Marvel would be able to do the character justice, especially with Hugh Jackman in the lead role. But we shouldn’t count out THE WOLVERINE just yet. The last trailer was pretty great and I have hope that James Mangold will get it right. If you’ve read any of my previous Wolverine stories, then you know I say that in every article and on some level, maybe I’m just writing that to convince myself. Either way, we still have a couple of months before we see the finished product, but check out some new images below featuring a couple of Hugh Jackman in action and a couple of behind the scenes photos.
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. THE WOLVERINE synopsis: Arguably the most beloved character in the X-Men universe, Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) returns to the big screen in the all new epic action-adventure THE WOLVERINE. This time, Logan finds himself in modern day Japan, out of his element and in an unusual world, facing a menacing nemesis that could mean the end of The Wolverine. Vulnerable for the first time and facing emotional and physical limits, he confronts his samurai adversaries as well as his own inner turmoil regarding his immortality. But the battles will leave Logan stronger and more powerful than ever before. (ComingSoon)
