I've got 2 cool things to share today to get you ready for The Wolverine - opening tomorrow July 26!
First up is a video of the San Diego Comic-Con panel featuring Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold that took place last weekend (7-20-13). The video is a great way to get up to speed on this movie before you head out to the theater. Mangold explains why Wolverine is such a special character and what it was like making the movie.
Mangold says about Logan/Wolverine -
"What is so important to me about Logan...is we get inside the anger and the rage. That's been in the comic books for years, but I don't think it's had a chance to be seen in both action and in drama."
Jackman talked about how he's wanted to make Logan's Japanese saga ever since reading the comic book back in the year 2000.
Jackman says he remembers telling one of the producers of the movie X-Men, 13 years ago -
"This is the movie we need to make."
Check out the video below and after you see The Wolverine, let me know what you think.
I also found this cool infographic from HalloweenCostumes.com. It was created by Kate Willaert, and it shows all the costumes that Wolverine has worn over the decades. It starts with his first appearance in Marvel Comics' The Incredible Hulk #180 (1974), all the way to the 2013 feature film - The Wolverine.
Note: As someone else pointed out, the costume shown for the movie X-Men is actually the one that Hugh Jackman wore in X2: X-Men United.
Kate also made a great infographic showing the evolution of Superman's "S" symbol, which is also worth a look.
