Now Jean Grey Gets Her Own Cool Sumi-E Poster for 'The Wolverine'
In the wake of the events following X-Men: The Last Stand, the trailers for The Wolverine show us that Logan (Hugh Jackman) is pretty shaken up over his fateful encounter with Jean Grey (Famke Janssen), the unattainable love of his life. Now the character is featured front and center on the latest poster crafted in the sumi-e ink style that kicked off with the original teaser poster. Since then, Yukio (Rila Fukushima), Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova) and the towering metallic Silver Samurai have all gotten similar posters, and while they're very stylish, this one seems like it might be a little overkill. Anyway, check it out below.
Here's the Jean Grey sumi-e poster for The Wolverine from Collider:
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 Marvel mutant all the way to Japan. 20th Century Fox is releasing James Mangold's The Wolverine in theaters everywhere July 26th this summer. Watch the most recent trailer!

Wait, Jean Grey is in this movie? Did I just completely miss that news in the past?

OK, these are starting to look dumb. The Wolverine one was cool because it was sorta abstract looking. All the rest look like they're trying too hard to look cool.

Aha? So Jean is back? I mean, a poster for someone dead that visits in a dream does not merit a poster. I'm cool with that. She's been dead a dozen times in the comics, I hope the sha'tari are somehow involved...

This isn't Phoenix. I would love to see X-Men go back to Marvel and have them make films faithful to the comics.

very cool ink work. So I guess for Jean to be front and center and the only one on this poster she must be in the movie long than just the bedroom scene. Hope the movie is good.
