Wolverine Is Pushed To The Limit In This New Photo image
Wolverine is pushed to the limit in this new image from The Wolverine. Just what heís pushing and why heís pushing it is not something weíre likely to find out until The Wolverine is actually released in theaters on July 26th.

Iím proud of the way Iíve 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 thatís not whatís going on here, I assume Loganís 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. Itís good to be Wolverine.

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

No, that isnít a robot Wolverine's fighting at the end. Or at least, I hope it isnít.

The filmís aforementioned director is James Mangold whoís 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 Mangoldís last movie was the Tom Cruise starring failure Knight and Day. It wasnít really that bad and it probably wasnít Mangold's fault. Donít hold it against him. I suspect this photo accurately expresses his feelings on the subjectÖ
