Film News, Gallery, The Wolverine Comments Off

A new promotional image of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine has been released. With claws on display, his all-black suit ensemble is a great juxtaposition. In the current issue of Empire (with Henry Cavill as Superman on the cover), there are feature articles for various superhero films coming out this year, including Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, and (of course) The Wolverine. Check out a few excerpts from the article below, in which Hugh Jackman and producer Hutch Parker talk about what to expect:

In the new issue of Empire, we spoke to X-producer Hutch Parker, who told us a bit more about the plot [of The Wolverine]. “We pick up Logan in a very isolated state, full of self-loathing. He is sought out by a young Asian woman for reasons he doesn’t fully understand, who is asking him to follow her to Japan where he is meant to reconnect with someone from his past.

“And what you’ll come to find is that this is someone he spent prison-time with in Nagasaki. And the legacy of that experience – effectively Logan saved him – is that this man is on his deathbed, and is looking to give him a gift, to thank him for the life he’s had.

“But this gift draws Logan into a very complex and very unexpected world within both contemporary Japan and, to some extent, the feudal history of Japan. He’s so in isolation, so out of his element. It’s a much more powerful distillation of his character than you’ve seen before.”

Says Hugh Jackman himself, returning to the character for the sixth time, “I still don’t think we’ve seen the definitive Wolverine. And the longer I play the character, the more the desire to get him right grows. The more I speak to fans and explore his world, the more it means to me. I understand the character and the legacy and I don’t feel, up to this movie, that we’ve completely lived up to that. So that’s what I intend to do.”
