‘The Wolverine’ Poster: A Beautiful Teaser Done in Japanese Brush Painting
Did you catch the live ‘The Wolverine’ chat today with star Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold? If you did, you know they teased a very special reveal at the end of the chat. So what is that reveal? An amazing ‘Wolverine’ poster, which you can see below.
Now this is a pretty cool poster. Done in a traditional Japanese brush painting style (complete with the red seal on the lower left side), it’s a classic Wolverine pose that is both beautiful and sells the film perfectly. This is the kind of poster we’re used to getting from Mondo, but not used to getting from studios promoting their superhero movies.
As for the live chat itself, it didn’t provide a whole lot in terms of juicy details but Mangold did say that you won’t see Wolverine tackling any helicopters in this movie as it would be more grounded in reality (or as much as a movie can be that stars a man with adamantium claws coming out of his fist). It is impressive, however, to see Jackman’s continued dedication and knowledge of the character. He’s not just an actor going through the motions, he clearly loves Wolverine and loves playing him on film.
What do you think of the ‘Wolverine’ teaser poster below? ‘The Wolverine‘ hits theaters on July 26, 2013.
