Hugh Jackman - The Wolverine

Mutant superhero or samurai warrior? Life or death? Sword or claws? So many tough choices Logan has to make! I caught a glimpse of this poster last night, thought it looked a bit cheesy, then warmed up to it. Now I think it's pretty dang cool, or at least vastly better than those other artistic disasters. This new Japanese poster art for James Mangold's The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman as Logan on a solo trip to Japan, shows him wielding both a samurai sword and his claws. The letters on either side of his head stand for Death and Life. I love that there's a bit of blood coming off the sword (but its blacked out) and concept behind this. Despite the typical blue/gold color scheme seen everywhere, I'm otherwise a fan of this poster.

Here's the newest Japanese samurai poster for James Mangold's The Wolverine, found via IMPAwards:

The Wolverine Poster

Based on the celebrated comic book arc by Chris Claremont & Frank Miller, 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.

James Mangold (Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma, Knight and Day) is directing The Wolverine from a script by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback who are adapting the classic 1982 story arc in the Wolverine comics, which takes our favorite mutant all the way to Japan. The cast includes Will Yun Lee as the Silver Samurai, Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper, Brian Tee, Hiroyuki Sanada and Rila Fukushima. 20th Century Fox is releasing The Wolverine in theaters starting July 26th this summer.

I've hated all of the posters that I've seen so far. This is going to be good, right? It was supposed to be good.

As the sun sets in the west, it raises in the east theme on the poster? Hope we can buy it, with red blood(unless someone actually has black blood in this movie).

Wolverine's coolest attribute - Badd ass claws that come out of his Hands. ScumBag Hollywood: "Let's give him a sword!"

The posters for Wolverine are the worst I've ever f*cking seen (besides the awesome b/w one).

So.... didn't wolverine get his adamantium claws from alpha flight in the 80'?? He should still have bone claws in the poster.
