While we’ve talked a lot about “The Wolverine,” and recently dove into the diverse array of influences James Mangold is bringing to the table, we’re still yet to experience the saturated marketing that’s been promised. In fact, we haven’t seen a moving image from the picture yet, though a trailer is due sometime between now and the end of the month. So until then? Here are a few more pictures to tide you over.
Empire has the latest snaps from the movie, and perhaps the most attention-grabbing of them all is Logan standing in a…botanical garden?…with some rather bloody claws. Either that or he’s got to do something about a serious rust problem. Meanwhile, the other two pics offer more of Hugh Jackman brooding, though not without reason. Producer Hutch Parker explained that the snowy pic captures Logan trying to find an old pal from his stint in a Nagasaki prison. “Effectively Logan saved him and this man is on his deathbed and is looking to give him a gift, to thank him for the life he’s had,” he says. “But this gift draws Logan into a very complex and very unexpected world.”
So a few more things to consider as we wait to see the hero in action. “The Wolverine” opens on July 26th.
