Good to hear FOX finally set a date (next summer was already running low on slots). I'm still not confident that with Mangold directing this film will do anything to elevate the genre. I'm also worried about Jackman's on-going (studio-pleasing) desire to cater to the children with this character. If Mangold can think outside the box [like Vaughn] & Jackman can come to terms with the fact that a man with unbreakable claws & brutal rage aren't kid-friendly aspects, this can be more than just X-Men Origins 2. Let's see what happens.

I hope they are already finding actors for the new characters such as Silver Samurai! I also hope they go to Japan!

In other news, here are the first shots of Jackman in his Les Miserables look:




Hopefully his hair will be long enough by the time they go into principal photography for The Wolverine.

That's only one Les Mis look and it's from the beginning of the musical/movie. His character ages a few decades and has different looks, from a prisoner (this look), to a prosperous mayor, to a surrogate father, to a volunteer revolutionary, to an old dying man. Looks like he's going to have to be wigged through the rest of the movie.

I just don't want him wearing a wig in The Wolverine & 6 months seems a bit short for reaching that Wolverine length.

The hair (or lack of it) probably only needs to be that way for the beginning scenes of the movie when he's a prisoner, not the whole movie. Once these scenes are done (probably next week), the hair will start growing out and if Wolverine starts in July as rumored, he would have had four months to grow it back.

I'm not sure it's being 'pushed back.'

I heard it was 'fall' which, as far as i know, could mean anytime in the third quarter of the year (July, Aug, Sept).

Jackman finishes Les Miserables in June, and he'll need a break and also time to get physically ready for the Wolverine role. So it will be at least July, perhaps later by the time the film is ready to go.

Watched X2 again today & all I can say is I really hope Mangold surprises me & makes this fifth outing for Jackman something new & inspired. I'm not expecting anything at the level of what Aronofsky would have given us, but I'm hoping it can at least redeem the character in the medium & hold its own with films like TDK & X-Men: First Class. In X2, Singer came closest to the subject matter Claremont & Miller were pursuing with Wolverine 30 years ago in the miniseries. Mangold needs to pay close attention to the undertones in that film & explore what it is to be an immortal & to be isolated in a world that feels alien to one's self. Only through combat does clarity solidify for Wolverine. I think none of the above ever came to mind during the ORIGINS shoot. If Mangold is allowed the boldness required to truly enter the mind of "The Wolverine" this can still [sans Aronofsky] amount to something great. I'm just haunted by the thought that he'll make it like Knight & Day and ruin the character even more.

Once Aronofsky left the project, my expectations became pretty much nothing.

so anything anyone does can't really upset me...much.

The beard is officially gone now, since they've finished up Valjean's post-chain gang scenes. On to the Mayor/Cosette's dad/Marius rescuer days.

Plus he also had what appears to be an awesome looking burger.

One of Hugh's boyhood friends, Gus Worland, is part of a radio show in Australia called The Grill Team. Every so often he gives little tidbits about "Jacko" - in a recent podcast, he mentioned this movie and said it was going to be filmed in Australia because of the Japan tsunami stuff.

Dislike option.

You can't capture the seediness and grime of Tokyo without actually shooting in Tokyo.

Its like shooting DRIVE in North Carolina instead of LA. No, just no.

This is a crime drama & in crime dramas your location is as much a character as your cast.

I hope FOX goes to Japan. Tokyo is up and running as we speak.

This picture was taken a week ago:

Japan got back up from that disaster incredibly fast. It's more than capable of hosting a film crew.

I really do hope a good portion is actually shot in Japan and not completely on sets.

I know this might be a silly question, but are we 100% SURE that this film is gonna see the light of day? I mean, has production actually started?

There were so many bad news and delays regarding this project, I m not sure if they make this movie. I kinda fear that we will soon hear that the film is scrapped.

Yes, it's absolutely happening as soon as Hugh finishes "Les Miserables" which is done filming in June. Plus his friend Gus who hosts the Australian radio show said it was going to be filmed in Australia (wish he said when though!). And don't forget it already has a July 2013 release date.

If you are interesting in what Gus said on the radio show, it's in this link, Podcast 551, you'll have to fast-forward a bit about 1/4 through.

I wish I could share your optimism. But then again, it sounds pretty damn legit. Hopefully we get some nice Set Pics in August, so that ll end all fears.

You gotta remember, compared to other CBM origin pictures (Ghost Rider, Thor, X-Men First Class, Captain America) X-Men Origins did very well at the box office.

For a movie with terrible reviews, it pulled $180 Million Domestically and $200 Million in the foreign market. It also had an $85 Million opening weekend.

Those numbers above got the film greenlit 3 years ago.

We were supposed to get this film this summer, but a stroke of bad luck happened with Aronofsky droppin' out and & Japan gettin' hit by disaster.

But yeah, as certain as you should be that there will be a Thor II, X-Men Second Class & Captain America 2, be certain that The Wolverine will hit theatres July 26.

We should have a trailer to wet our beaks this Christmas though
