Say what you want about the abomination of a film known as X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but don’t deny that actor Hugh Jackman is the absolute best choice for the character. He was born to play the clawed mutant with a temper and I’m still looking forward to James Mangold‘s The Wolverine, despite absolutely hating the X-Men: Origins film.
This first look at Jackman reprising the role shows us a lean and mean ass-kicking machine that looks like he’s ready to rip someone’s head off. It doesn’t give us any plot details or other character reveals, but it’s simply a strong reminder that Jackman is and always will be the best damn Wolverine.
The Wolverine opens in theaters on July 26th, 2013.
