Based On These Hugh Jackman Photos, It Looks Wolverine Just Got Rebooted As A Mole Person

Hugh Jackman On The Wolverine Set

Jeez, Wolverine. Just because you have super healing powers and an indestructible adamantium skeleton doesn’t mean you don’t have to wash your coat. You do! That goes double for your face coat! A filthy-looking Hugh Jackman appeared on the set of The Wolverine today, and apparently things have not been going well for Wolvie in his X-Men Origins: Wolverine prequel. According to IMDB, the plot follows the titular hero as “Wolverine travels to Japan to train with a samurai warrior.” From the looks of it, Wolverine had to crawl through a subway tunnel the entire way to get there, face coat-first.

Maybe all this grime is the director’s way of redeeming the X-Man after Jackman’s first turn as Wolverine was universally panned. This guy would could imagine jumping in slow-motion over a helicopter. After rumors about Jessica Biel potentially joining the movie proved to be false, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy actress Svetlana Khodchenkova was added to the production as villainess femme fatale Viper. That’s for the best. Svetlana isn’t quite the A-lister Jessica is. We wouldn’t have been able to buy it if someone as flawless as Biel was consorting with someone who’s coat is most certainly crawling with bugs.
