James Mangold, the director of Fox’s upcoming “The Wolverine”, would like you to know that he’s almost done with post-production work on the film. While he was at the computer, he also dropped three new behind-the-scenes pics from the comic book sequel/prequel/whatever via Twitter. Check them out below, check them outers.
By the way, what is going on with Hugh Jackman’s mid-section? Is that some kind of special effects? Holy crap.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
“The Wolverine” also stars Brian Tee, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Rila Fukushima, James Fraser, Tao Okamoto, Hal Yamanouchi.
