thats not a photo, thats a drawing. a photo suggest it is based on a real life person in it. this picture has no living thing in it at all.

My first impressions were a drawing as well...is it just a heavily airbrushed photo?

It's a photo, but photoshopped/aurbrushed to infinity. Still, it looks badass, and that's what matters the most here. I like it. Dig the shorter hairdo, kinda Cockrum-ish and it looks more natural that way in live-action.

It's very stylish and the photoshopping makes it kinda comic book-y, I dig that.

I love it! I love the almost comicbook-like style of it, I love how absolutely badass he looks. Yes. Oh, yes.

Yeah, very comic book cover-ish. Now if we see something like that in motion, that will be the litmus test.

That photo could've easily been used in Origins, that's how nondescript it is. Where's the Japanese setting?

I would've killed for an action shot of Hugh and Will Yun Lee or Shingen Yasuda. Shirtless Wolverine is a dime-a-dozen these days...

There's what looks like a Japanese temple in the background.

There's a huge part of me that loves Jackman and a huge part of me that blames him for many of the poor decisions made regarding Wolverine's portrayal.

He has that lean muscular look still going on but i thought he was trying to go for more of stocky broad look compared to the last film?

I guess that delay in filming took a toll to how massive he could get?
