The Wolverine first still revealed

 

Wolverine, in my personal opinion, is the greatest comic book character ever, i will not get into the reasons why i think so because if i start i wont finish. He’s the only superhero who I would save before my own parents from certain death (maybe not so much, but pretty close to that), and he deserves his moment in the sun. His shot at redemption — because inside Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is a truly great superhero movie. I’m talking The Avengers levels of awesomeness. This could happen, this concept I’m talking about. It could happen as close as 2013. We have a real shot at the perfect superhero movie here, with James Mangold’s The Wolverine.

Here i present you the first ever still for the upcoming new movie The Wolverine:

 

This time around, Hugh Jackman stated that he ate six meals a day in preparation for the role.Jackman contacted Dwayne Johnson for some tips on bulking up for the movie. Johnson suggested that for six months, gain a pound a week, by eating 6,000 calories a day which consisted of “an awful lot of chicken, steak and brown rice.

This is how Hugh Jackman himself described the current incarnation of Wolverine:

“I had this image in my head of De Niro in that remake of Cape Fear. You were terrified of that character from the moment he took his shirt off and you saw all the tats; you know he was this coiled spring that would rip your head off, no matter how nonchalant he acted. That’s who Wolverine is. I always thought of him as being lean, animalistic, not necessarily pretty. He has all this berserkery, and he’s terrifying when he loses all reason in blind rage”

I cant express enough how excited i really am for this movie, Wolverine is my all time favorite comic book character, the first ever comic i ever read and owned was a Wolverine comic my mom found at a book store and thought i would like.
