Improved Poster For ‘The Wolverine’, Plus A Teaser And Pictures Of Viper And More

Yesterday, Dan pointed out the photoshop disaster that is the newest poster for The Wolverine. It featured ninjas that were repeated over and over in a sloppily cut-and-pasted sort of way as if we wouldn’t notice. (Because you know what they say. All ninjas look alike.)

Besides wondering HOW THE HELL ARE WE ABLE TO SEE NINJAS, we also thought they missed an opportunity to really have fun swarming Hugh Jackman with something. Thankfully, tjdr59 at CBM came up with an improved poster.

Magnificent. A stunning exercise in contrast between clawed beasts of varying ferociousness.

Anyway, director James Mangold has tweeted a six-second teaser of The Wolverine in the form of a Vine GIF with sound. Yes, Vine is now being used to promote tentpole movies. We’ve put the YouTube version of it below. Spoiler alert, it reveals that the character rumored to be making a cameo is in fact in the movie (spoiler alert again: it’s Famke Janssen as Jean Grey.)

On the next page, we also have pictures of Svetlana Khodchenkova as Viper, Tao Okamoto as Mariko, Rila Fukushima as Yukio, and Hugh Jackman as that guy with no shirt on. The Wolverine explodes ovaries on July 26th.
