    Not exactly new information, but this is part of a Jackman interview from "Parade" in my local paper:

    Speaking of The Wolverine, you look ripped in those first pictures we've seen. I gather that's not painted on?

    I wish! I keep thinking, "Come on, you spend millions on CGI, can't you throw a quarter million my way for visual effects so I can eat pizza and drink beer and still look great?" No, I had to do it the hard way. Let me tell you, at 44 it's not getting easier.

    Give us a little scoop on the film.

    You want to get me into trouble, don't you? [laughs] Okay, the movie takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand. My character is at his lowest. He is supposed to be able to heal himself, but he may encounter someone who has worked out a way to really hurt him. And there is a cameo from one of the past X-Men in it.

    Another discussion about how the atmosphere and direction for the film developed. While the classic Claremont/Miller story is the strong influence Mangold also looked for other inspirations.
    I like this part.

    My expectations for this film keep rising.

    Yeah "The Outlaw of Josey Wells" has been cited as one of the inspirations for the film's tone and structure even when Aronofsky was still attached to the project, and one of the statements that really got me excited.

    I can't wait for the first trailer.

    Love that quote. I really like that it's going for the 'curse of the immortals' angle.

    I'm liking that this is going to be after The Last Stand. I wasn't expecting that.

    The Claremont/Miller series took place after Wolverine had already been an X-Man and after Jean had died, so after The Last Stand is the only place it would really fit.

    Probably very soon. There were some reports that we might get it attached with "The Hobbit" but obviously that didn't happen. I have said I think probably either later this month or sometime next month for the first teaser. I'm guessing perhaps even The SuperBowl.

    Cool, I'm dying to see some footage from this.
    Was the Logan in Japan story the '82 Claremont/Miller miniseries?

    I've been thinking about buying the digital version, but I can't decide for sure if I want to get it now, or wait and read it after I see the movie.

    Two new posters, 8 stills and I just read on Facebook there's going to be a teaser trailer on the 27th :cool:

    First poster amazing, second poster very cool, third poster isn't as good.

    Viper looks gorgeous and Hugh Jackman looks badass.

    Here's another still of Viper. She looks to have taken a little tumble here. Maybe she forgot where her feet were. But she doesn't look injured.

    ^See a couple of posts above for it.

    It's not as bad as Prometheus last year which had adverts for clips of a teaser.

    :lol:

    The OP probably never intended this to be the ongoing thread.

    Those stills look great and while the "ninja" poster lacks something to be desired(I get what they were going for) my interest in the film keeps going up!!
