hugh jackman as The Wolverine

Wow, it’s all about Marvel at the minute, isn’t it?

We’ve just been sent this new image of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in James Mangold’s upcoming The Wolverine. We really hope that with Days of Future Past shaping up nicely, this will help put X-Mne back on the map, we loved First Class and know that Wolverine deserves a great movie… is this the one?

Press release:

The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman and directed by James Mangold, opens in cinemas around the world beginning in July 2013.


Based on the celebrated comic book arc, The Wolverine finds Logan, the eternal warrior and outsider, in Japan. There, samurai steel will clash with adamantium claw as Logan confronts a mysterious figure from his past in an epic battle that will leave him forever changed.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
