Wolverine is pushed to the limit in this new image from The Wolverine. Just what he’s pushing and why he’s pushing it is not something we’re likely to find out until The Wolverine is actually released in theaters on July 26th.

I’m proud of the way I’ve avoided pointing out that Hugh Jackman also looks sort of like he had sub-par Thai food last night and is now facing the consequences of that poorly chosen meal. Obviously that’s not what’s going on here, I assume Logan’s healing factor not only fixes up major things like bullet wounds but also takes pretty good care of more minor health problems like constipation or indigestion. It’s good to be Wolverine.

What we do know about The Wolverine is that it looks good. That optimism is warranted largely because of Fox’s choice of director and their decision to use the character’s famed Japanese story arc. It has less to do with the trailers, which are just sort of alright. Case in point...



No, that isn’t a robot Wolverine's fighting at the end. Or at least, I hope it isn’t.

The film’s aforementioned director is James Mangold who’s been responsible for such excellent films as Walk the Line and 3:10 to Yuma. Imagining Wolverine in a 3:10 to Yuma style feature makes me a little bit tingly and happy.

Notice that in addition to the Thai thing, I've avoided mentioning Mangold’s last movie was the Tom Cruise starring failure Knight and Day. It wasn’t really that bad and it probably wasn’t Mangold's fault. Don’t hold it against him. I suspect this photo accurately expresses his feelings on the subject…
