The Wolverine Posters And New Promo Pics Prove Hugh Jackman Still Master of Topless Primal Scream



I’d like to think the ad exec conversation behind the two new posters for The Wolverine went something like this.

“Time to make a new Wolverine poster. Any ideas?”

“Shirtless. Screaming. Claws out.”


“Wait, come on guys. The movie is set in Japan. Surely there’s some kind of scenery or even nod to the culture’s centuries-old artistic traditions that we could make?”

“Let’s throw a bunch of ninjas in! He can still be shirtless, screaming, claws out, with a million photoshopped ninjas. Like Wolverine’s ninja nightmare, by M.C. Escher.”

“This completely satisfies my earlier query.”

Okay, fine, here are the promo pics, courtesy Entertainment Weekly. And one, final, hilarious comparison.
