“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.

Over at /Film, Germain Lussier has a great breakdown of highlights from the Jackman/Mangold chat, including the following:
We all know Wolverine can’t be hurt but, in this film, we’ll learn what his “kryptonite” is.
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.
