The Wolverine Boasts A New Stormy Animated Movie Poster, Starring Hugh Jackman

The Wolverine

The Wolverine is definitely taking a whole new direction and is somehow running away from its Origins predecessor. In fact, everything about the movie looks different, except for Logan (Full Name: James Howlett), who was portrayed by Hugh Jackman since the very first live-action X-Men movie.

The movie is trying to be cool and wanted to erase from the movie-goers's memories the not-so-successful remains of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The marketing stunts were so cool I had almost mistaken the new poster of the movie for a new comic book arc.

I do believe in the future that 3D animated posters will become a great trend, but for now enjoy this 2d animated poster of The Wolverine:

Gavin Hood, the Ogirins director, stepped down and let James Mangold do the cool directing. The story was based on the comic book arc by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, and was adapted to screenplay by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback.

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.

Expect a new set of characters since Logan will be heading over to Japan. This is another way to make sure we won't remember... the... you know... sorry I have already forgotten what I'm going to say. For the meantime, let's all wait and do something else before the movies' release on July 26, 2013.
