“In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan’s attempts to hide from the world and his legacy are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.”

—IMDB

There’s simply no limit to the beauty this film has wrapped in all the swearing and gritty glory that defines Wolverine’s character and this film. Wolverine has not had an easy life, he has gone through so much and the writers knew just how to capitalize on the character, the Wolverine, and evolve the story for him. They took a risk, and they ended the story properly, they ended it in such a way that they gave closure to the character and his legacy in the X-Men.

Even though X-Men Origins: Wolverine was a solid hit for Fox, pulling in more than $373 million worldwide, follow up The Wolverine stumbled its way into production. Darren Aronofsky dropped the film and left Fox scrambling for a replacement; after names like Doug Liman, Justin Lin, Duncan Jones and Mark Romanek were bandied about, the job ultimately went to Knight and Day director James Mangold.

In short, the development of the film has been a rollercoaster ride of thrilling possibilities and soul-crushing disappointments for fans of the franchise. But now with a first official photo of Hugh Jackman back in action and ready to brawl as the titular badass, fans can take some comfort in the fact that Logan’s never before looked so intimidating. Check out the still released by Twentieth Century Fox at the film’s official Facebook page.

Jackman is insanely ripped in this shot, displaying a body that, with the help of some shrewd shading, looks like he’s not a man of steel, but a man of adamantium! In the distance and out of focus, you can make out what appears to be a Buddhist temple. This gives audience an impactful preview of what screenwriters Mark Bomback and Christopher McQuarrie have in store for their adaptation of Chris Claremont and Frank Miller’s heralded comic book arc, which sends Logan to Japan for a battle that will change him forever.

The Wolverine will charge into theaters—all fists and adamantium claws—on July 26th, 2013.

By: Eric Eisenberg

The_Wolverine_32528Earlier this week we learned that The Wolverine, the latest film about the superhero played by Hugh Jackman, would be more of a standalone film and separate from X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but we still didn’t have a clear idea of exactly what the plot would entail. Today we have a much better idea.

Its been long rumored that the film would be based on the famous arc by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, a new official plot synopsis, which was posted over on HitFix, confirms it. Here it is:

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.

It’s also worth noting that director James Mangold, who is helming The Wolverine, recently joined Twitter and has been talking about the movie on his feed. Two of the most interesting Tweets he sent out were about the classic films that he is thinking about during production.
