Hugh Jackman Is Disheveled in New Images from the Set of THE WOLVERINE

     August 6, 2012


Production on The Wolverine is finally underway, and the images and videos from the set keep pouring in.  We previously saw video of an action sequence, images of Hugh Jackman’s new shorter hairstyle for the follow-up, and subsequent images of Jackman on a “Canadian Rockies” set in Australia, where the pic is being filmed.  Now images have surfaced that show yet another side of said Wolverine, with Jackman looking plenty disheveled sporting a scraggly beard and unkempt hairstyle.  The bulk of the story finds our hero in Japan, but I’m unsure as to how “Hobo Wolverine” fits into the plot.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  Directed by James Mangold, the film also stars Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki SanadaHal YamanouchiTao Okamoto, and Rila FukushimaThe Wolverine opens on July 26th, 2013.

    Didn’t I see a teaser for this a few weeks ago?… WAIT! That was Man of Steel! Striking similarities. (the unshaven)

      Only difference is Jackman pulls the look off better. And So does Wolverine.

      Man of Adamantium …

        Hmm…I do wonder how long a fight between Superman and Wolverine would last. Not that there’s any doubt about the result, but it may last longer than against some other superhero….?

    I thought this was Jackman playing Jean Valjean when I first saw the pic.

      It is valjean, he stoped in on set, scenes for les miserables still needed finished. Just completing prior agreements… my guess anyway, besides wolverine with long hair and a beard is stupid, if this were part of the movie you can bet the rest is going to scream STUPID!

    He should have played the Bond franchise. He’s the closest thing to Connery. Craig doesn’t do anything for me. Dalton was the Bond Flemming wrote about, but Connery made it real. Moore made him popular, Brosnan gave it youth. Luckily, I will work on a Brosnan project in three.

    Oh, man . .. . and this opens a month after Man of Steel? Damn.. . .

    i know going from looking disheveled to well kept is a GREAT way to show a character who was lost but has now found purpose (Batman Begins, Dark Knight Rises), but its times like these that i wish the different comic book people collaborated a little more to avoid seeming redundant.. . .

    • Dan

      I’m sorry, would you rather they showed him strung out in a slum living with a crack whore? It may be cliche but come on man.

  • andi

    anyone else thinking what I’m thinking? That damn beard looks exactly like the nasty stage beard he wears in the Prestige

    Producer 1 “Hey guys we have to make this one more gritty”
    Producer 2 “hmmmmmmmmmmmm…..beard.”
    Producer 1 “Genius”

    If these images are from, say, the last few weeks, then it wouldn’t have been “Jean Valjean” because in Les Mis he is either a) wearing a fake beard & wig or b) the beard and long hair for Les Mis is _real_ in which case those scenes would have been filmed first and then the hair cut and beard shave. Just for practical reasons. If these were taken months ago, however, then it _could_ be the Valjean look and just a quick set visit.
