We’re still waiting for the first footage from James Mangold‘s The Wolverine, but maybe a new still will do the trick for today. This image explicitly puts Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) in Japan, or at least in front of a shoji screen, with what appears to be his backlight visible behind him. Beyond that, it’s definitely Wolverine, and we can’t tell all that much more.
Along with that shot there’s a still from Shane Black‘s Iron Man 3, but it too doesn’t tell us anything we don’t already know. (It’s pulled from footage we’ve seen, but we’ll go with it here as a standalone image just to play along.) Finally, the same scene from Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel that was used in the last poster can be seen in an expanded still. It’s more low-quality than the other two shots here, but worth a look.
See all full-size below.
Images from EW, via Film Thrasher. Hopefully the slowly increasing output of material from The Wolverine means we’ll have a teaser trailer soon. Watch for the poster drop, which will probably come just before the footage debut.
The Wolverine opens on July 26, 2013.
Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine, the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world he faces his ultimate nemesis in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality, emerging more powerful than we have ever seen him before.
Man of Steel opens on June 14.
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.
Iron Man 3 opens May 3.
Marvel’s Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
