Two Posters for 'The Wolverine' Show Logan's Rage + New Photos
Rrrrraaaaaggggeeee!! No tagline needed. Everything that needs to be said is being said on Hugh Jackman's face, screaming in rage as Wolverine. 20th Century Fox has unveiled two new posters for James Mangold's The Wolverine standalone spin-off movie set in Japan, just before the trailer arrives this week. Both of the posters show Hugh Jackman as Logan screaming with his claws out, but they also have that kind of shiny, comic book-feel which really makes them feel a bit cheap. I love the ninja artwork, I just wish it wasn't a bad Photoshop and had more of a full-on comic book feel, like the first Wolverine teaser poster. That said, this still looks awesome. While we wait for the trailer to arrive, EW also unveiled a new set of photos. See below!

Here's yet another alternate UK poster design, revealed by the official @TheWolverineUK twitter today.
Here's a quick 6-sec Vine "tweaser" (via Twitter) of the first trailer, which will be arriving later this week:
In addition to these two posters, Entertainment Weekly has also debuted a gallery of photos from The Wolverine, giving us a look at all the characters we'll meet prior to the trailer debut. Click for a full gallery:
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. Stay tuned for the trailer next.

Well, to be fair, Marvel ruined Wolverine long before the movie with the Origins story.

Fox.. not marvel
Christopher George on Mar 25, 2013
First poster is one of the hackiest photoshop jobs I've ever seen. Fox actually paid someone to do that?

second one is too!! lol the way they did his pecs by the armpit area is horrible

First one is pretty bad yes, but I can't really hate anything that has that many ninjas on it.
Boiler Bro Joe on Mar 26, 2013
Yep. Those look like the posters I would expect from Fox.
Grichmer on Mar 25, 2013
First one is just awful.
Nielsen700 on Mar 25, 2013
Is it just me, or Jackman has the same face in both posters?
Dan on Mar 25, 2013
Ha ha, must have been a quick photoshoot
Carpola on Mar 25, 2013
I just overlaid the two in PhotoShop and I can confirm they are the exact same image
kaiser on Mar 25, 2013
And that took you...1 min? WTF FOX, why you no make real art
Bobby B on Mar 29, 2013
the first movie was so bad, expect nothing from this one
tony on Mar 25, 2013
Those ninjas must be beginners... A real ninja would never be seen like the one standing behind you right now.. to late hes gone but he will be back....
DJROBL on Mar 25, 2013
Jackman promised awesome in the last one. So for this one, My expectations are straight to video quality. Why FOX treats their Marvel properties so poorly is beyond reason or understanding.

The first one is the worst poster ever seen. The second is a bad The Dark Knight Rises rip-off

The black and white one at my local theater is miles better than these twos. http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=wolverine+poster&FORM=HDRSC2#view=detail&id=979AD07A60FC59B2F60971F83C1F41FAA4E7CCAF&selectedIndex=0 Love.

dork on Mar 25, 2013
The first movie was AWFUL, and now that director, Gavin Hood, has gone on to ruin Ender's Game! Ugh
Scott Meadows on Mar 25, 2013
It's the SAME EXACT HEAD in both posters. TERRIBLE photoshop work! Shameful
Ammon Anderson on Mar 25, 2013
Is this gonna be rated R? I doubt it but i heard there was chance they'd make it bloody
qerbgv on Mar 25, 2013
I'd say the first movie poster is one of the worst ever created... who did get money for that???
Buckaroo Banzai on Mar 25, 2013
same face two bodies? awkward.
Kento on Mar 25, 2013
Was it really that expensive to simply take two different photographs of Hugh? These are horrible...
Ricardo J C Marques on Mar 25, 2013
I love to hates these, they're totally getting my money because I'm a fan of the comics, of the actors and while not so much the translation I am just glad they're making these movies. So long as they don't make false promises like they did for X3 I'm fine
Barbara Ruiz on Mar 25, 2013
Those posters are a joke and an insult.
