The December 2012 Empire Magazine photo of Hugh Jackman from James Mangold‘s The Wolverine (2013) is our second official look at the character from the film. In the photo, Hugh Jackman is shirtless, bone claws out, looking out what seems to be a pit in a film Mangold describes as “Japanese noir picture with tentpole action in it.”

Director James Mangold had this to be say about where The Wolverine fits into the continuum of the other X-Men films:
Where this film sits in the universe of the films is after them all… Jean Grey is gone, most of the X-Men are disbanded or gone, so there’s a tremendous sense of isolation for him.
On why some of the other X-Men films or the characters within them will not be an influence on this film:
I wanted to be able to tell the story without the burden of handing it off to a film that already exists and having to conform to it. The ideas of immortality reign very heavily in this story and the burden of immortality weighs heavily on Logan. For me that’s such an interesting part of Logan’s character that is nearly impossible to explore if you have a kind of league or team movie.
The Wolverine also stars Tao Okamoto, Luke Webb, James Fraser, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Will Yun Lee, Hal Yamanouchi, Rila Fukushima, and Brian Tee.
