Hugh Jackman First Official Photo Of "The Wolverine"

This couldn’t have come at a better time. We’ve become so used to seeing Hugh Jackman looking gaunt and, well, miserable, in Les Miserables that we almost forgot how kickass he could be in that role we love to see him in — Wolverine! We’re all going to get a serious fix when his upcoming film, the James Mangold-directed,  The Wolverine releases next year in July. It’s going to be the sixth installment in the X-Men series, as well as a stand-alone sequel to the 2009 movie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, and we can’t wait to watch it! Luckily, the kind folk at Twentieth Century Fox have released the first official of Hugh as ‘The Wolverine’ on their Facebook page and he looks unbelievably ripped! Very different from the pictures we saw of him on-set last month, right? Scraggly beard and hair gone! The movie’s IMDB page says that, “Wolverine travels to Japan to train with a samurai warrior” so you know the action sequences are going to be unreal. How does one even get abs like that? Says the woman digging into a tub of ice-cream as she types.
