The visual marketing campaign for The Wolverine has been unique and eye-catching. While we’ve seen a few standard posters, 20th Century Fox is really embracing this “Sumi Ink” look, which shows off the film’s Japanese setting. recently we saw a poster for Jean Grey in the form, but the Silver Samurai also made an appearance and of course, the big guy himself has had an ink-painted image.
