In a recent interview on 'The Jeff Probst
Show,' Hugh Jackman
asserted that the recently released poster for his upcoming film THE WOLVERINE
is not a fake. "That's all me, man," Jackman said. "... it was brutal getting there...For that kind of body, I had to go up in weight, big, lift big and heavy, then strip down." Check out the film's poster below!
The Wolverine, which is directed by James Mangold, will arrive in cinemas on July 26, 2013. The cast includes Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee.
Based on Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's 1982 Wolverine miniseries, the film follows Logan's troubled adventures in modern-day Japan. There he is forced to confront not only a deadly enemy, but the terrible truth of his own mortality.
