Concept Art & Set Constructions From The Wolverine

Written by Alexander Tucker   // 07/25/2012

Hugh Jackman The WolverineHere’s a cool look at some concept art and set constructions from ‘The Wolverine.’ Superhero Hype presented the images yesterday afternoon and it took me a day to post them, but I hope all you film fanatics, like myself appreciate them as much as I do. I always get a kick out of sets and movie magic, no matter how many times I see it.


The Wolverine stars Hugh Jackman of course, as he revisits his career defining role as James “Logan” Howlett a.k.a. Wolverine. The character made him an international superstar back in 2000 when he first donned the metal alloy claws in Bryan Singer’s, ‘X-Men.’


This go around, Hugh Jackman and The Wolverine will be directed by James Mangold, a very good director, best known for Walk the Line and the underrated 3:10 to Yuma. 


Silver Samurai The Wolverine


Casting is still underway, but a large chunk of the roster has been filled. Will Yun Lee had been cast as The Wolverine‘s main villain, Kenuichio Harada a.k.a. the Silver Samurai. Hiroyuki Sanada (Rush Hour 3, Lost) will play Shingen, while Hal Yamanouchi (The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, Push) will play Yashida. Also recently cast are fresh faces Tao Okamoto and Rila Fukushima, both Japanese models who are relatively new to acting. Okamoto will play Mariko, who in the comics is a love interest of Wolverine’s and the daughter of Shingen. Fukushima will play ninja assassin Yukio, originally hired to kill Wolverine.


Plot details are still under wraps, everything we know is based on early casting, but we do know that Marvel Entertainment and 20th Century Fox are aiming for a July 26, 2013 release and these picture are proof of production. Don’t forget, there has been many delays to this project and for a few months two years to a year ago, the project was in doubt.
