'Wolverine' pic: Jackman's samurai duel

Posted on

Wolverine 09

Director James Mangold just tweeted a new picture from the set of The Wolverine, his upcoming X-Men spinoff-sequel which promises to reboot the Wolverine mini-franchise with a long-awaited dose of samurai. (In industry nomenclature, this is known as a “samurai-quel.”) The image shows Wolverine star Hugh Jackman in a sharp-things duel with Hiroyuki Sanada, better known as “The Cool Guy From The Last Samurai.” Check it out:

Wolverine 09

The main thing to notice in this picture is Hugh Jackman’s torso, and the muscles located thereupon. Some of those muscles haven’t even been discovered by science yet. This movie will definitely play on your gym TV set round-the-clock starting early 2014.
