The Wolverine Gets Classic Superhero Stance For New Poster


Looking forward to James Mangold’s The Wolverine? Here’s another poster to get you excited. Want to see the rain fall? Sure you do! We’ve got the motion poster (which is thankfully silent) after the jump.

Is it just me, or does Hugh Jackman look completely hairless here? Wolverine is the HAIRIEST!

    That’s a pretty dope poster. I am a little concerned that the movie’s out in 2013 and we still haven’t gotten any sort of trailer, but hopefully we get one soon.

    Why does he need a katana? Or is that something he stripped off a defeated foe as a trophy?

    This part takes place when Wolverine was in Japan… I wouldn’t be surprised if they used the four part Wolverine Miniseries as the basis for this movie…

    I have to agree. The poster is pretty sharp…

    I wonder how many copies of a Wolverine comic would have sold in the ealry 90s against the hologram style if this could have been replicated on the cover.

    The pretty Tour Eiffel lookalike in festive reds and whites in the back is Tokyo Tower, so yeah. Also, the katakana on the flashing vertical thingie spells ウルヴァリン / “Wolverine” :D

    However, I’m drawing blanks on something with that kind of traditional roof that could be so high so as to get that angle in real life and in the neighborhood. It would make more sense to place Wolverine on top of the Diet Building…

    Diet Building? What’s that?

    Is this a sequel to that other Hugh Jackmon-starred Wolverine movie?

    Because I had no idea that there was going to be another one. :)

    I like the poster! Simple, and a touch sexy. & I’m not gonna deny that as long as Hugh Jackman keeps making Wolverine movies…I’m probably going to keep throwing money to go see them.

    Hot, but I always thought Wolvie with a katana was a bit redundant.

    Wolverine was a killer who strangely enough admired Samurai and Japanese culture for some reason…

    In the Marvel Universe there are several tall modern buildings with pagodas and gardens on the roof . Super Villans love that stuff, go fig. I can remember seeing these in comics, but it’s been a very long time since I’ve read a Wolverine comic, and I’m too lazy to look for references :)
