‘The Wolverine’ Poster Shows Off the New Women in Hugh Jackman’s Life
With its release date only a month away, ‘The Wolverine‘ has unleashed yet another new poster on an unsuspecting populace, reminding us that this summer isn’t just about ‘Iron Man 3′ and ‘Man of Steel.’ The poster doesn’t reinvent the wheel in any way, but has everything you need to sell this movie: Hugh Jackman‘s physique, that same cityscape we’ve definitely seen before, and two gorgeous women.
Most of the posters for ‘The Wolverine’ have depicted everyone’s favorite adamantium-clawed mutant solo, usually yelling at the sky with his shirt off, but this new international version (via Movie Maniac) brings more girl power. Although the villainous Silver Samurai isn’t here (which begs the question of, “Why not?!”), Wolverine is flanked by Svetlana Khodchenkova’s Viper, a deadly adversary, and Rila Fukushima’s Yukio, a samurai sword-wielding ally of sorts.
‘The Wolverine’ opens on Jul. 26. The capable James Mangold is behind the camera this time around, so we’ll hopefully avoid another ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine.’ Because the world cannot afford another ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine.’
