“Nice to see that boutique collectible poster design is starting to influence actual studio posters.”
This quote, from the Twitter fee of industry pal John Gholson (@Gholson), is indicative of my own initial thoughts when first looking at this new poster for The Wolverine, which was released following an online live-stream conversation with star Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold. It’s artful, gorgeous and could very well end up on my wall next to one of my many non-studio prints from Mondo or Gallery 1988. You can have a look at the image and a few highlights from the live chat just after the jump.

The action is more grounded and real. Mangold said Wolverine won’t be taking down any planes in this movie, a jab at X-Men Origins Wolverine.
