'The Wolverine' Makes An Emo Album Cover In New International Poster

Listen Logan, we know things might be hard right now. Silver Samurai is out there, and aspects of your personal life may not be going so well, but this is a bit much. At least put on a jacket, you’ll catch your death of cold.

A new international poster has arrived for “The Wolverine,” and it appears our hero is getting ready to drop his first album of heart-wrenching emo. We jest, but with the bright lights of the big, presumably much warmer city lurking in the background, kneeling in the rain on the edge of a building with a samurai sword seems a bit…dramatic. Also, we’re pretty sure just walking around shirtless with a sword and with claw bared isn’t the kind of attention one wants to draw towards themselves. Or maybe it is, if you’re feeling a bit emotional.

Anyway, feel the pain below along with a motion poster version that emphasizes the melancholy and infinite sadness. “The Wolverine” will hopefully be feeling better and ready to date again on July 26, 2013. [RopeOfSilicon]

This article is horrid. Seriously, you wrote 8 sentences and none of them were funny, cool, or even entertaining. And Jesus Christ, the line with "a bit…dramatic" is almost unbearable. It's a superhero movie involving a man with claws and crazy healing abilities. That premise MIGHT constitute a movie with a lot of drama. Who knows though? Maybe I'm being…dramatic.

I'm not being dramatic. This article was awful.


Labels. That is just sad. You label it emo to feign coolness. You are not cool and this is not emo. This is art. Get a grip.


These posters (the US one included) looks JUST like the Frank Miller Wolverine comics of the 80s, set in Japan, which were ultra-violent. Clearly, the movie is based on those. So I fail to see the problem, or the EMO-ness. I see ignorance on the part of the author of this article, though.


Yes indeed it does suck like emo. Please Fox abort this retarded fetus of a movie and give Marvel back what is theirs (the license to make good movies with their characters).


Ha! Wolverine catch a cold? Don't be so daft


… like tears in rain…
