Wonderful Animated Poster For Wolverine

13 December 2012

Ever so stylish image revealed

Modern movie posters can be a mixed bag- from the excellent Dark Knight imagery to the worst airbrushed rom-com drivel. However, Fox have outdone themselves with this beauty for James Mangold's upcoming The Wolverine.

The animated image (with audio) sees a shirtless, brooding Hugh Jackman leaning on a katana sword above the Tokyo skyline.

The latest official synopsis reads thus:

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed.

Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.

If they didn't before, they most certainly have our attention now...

The Wolverine is released on 26th July 2013
