First Image from The Wolverine: Hugh Jackman Has Veins Bigger than My Arms

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | September 24, 2012 | Comments ()


What the hell? Is there some sort of tipping point for musculature? Like, it's dead sexy to a certain point before it morphs into unsettling? I think Jackman has tipped the scale, although the first image does at least suggest that James Mangold's entry will be a darker, more gritty Wolverine than Wolverine: Origins.

But damn, Hugh. Lay off the protein shakes. You could poke an eye out with those veins.

    "So vascular, bro"

    The chest has already been mentioned twice or thrice, so please allow me to focus your attention on another part of this man's anatomy. Not what you're thinking. I mean, further up.

    The head. It's nice, but it requires a bigger body. Or is that just me falling for some pose-at-an-angle-with-shoulder-to-camera-plus-light-plus-photoshop- trick?
    Or is it the neck looking too thin in this picture?

    Excuse me, I seem to be going mad.

    Was watching the 90's cartoons the other day on the Netflix. Have to say, I forgot how useless Wolverine was in them. Basically he overacted, showed his claws, threatened someone, and then was just thrown around if there were no robots to cut in half. Which was a lot of the time.

  • zeke_the_pig

    That's fantastic. I don't remember it like that at all. Oh, the power of a good PR department.

  • Strand

    So he's basically Worf.

  • I will never NOT love Wolverine but was he ever this lean??
    I do appreciate the hell out of his chest and body hair though. I'm with Natallica on this one. Chest.

  • Mrcreosote

    His abs appear to reach up to his heart. That can't be normal, can it? Does Wolvie's mutant power include unlimited crunches? Is this movie actually just a workout video? Professor Xavier's INSANITY!!! Be the next stage in human evolution!*
    *Blob was not compensated for his involvement.

  • David Sorenson

    Had a mental image of Professor X trying to do all the jump exercises in his wheelchair. Straining to get both wheels off the ground.

    Gonna laugh myself right to hell over that one.

  • Bert_McGurt

    It's actually P90-Weapon X.

  • lowercase_ryan

    can't tell if you're serious or not, but I'm willing to bet those veins are as legit as his stomach and claws.

  • Dave Dorris

    Nope. Pretty legit.
    Obviously there's some manipulation here. It's a promo photo. But given the starting point:

    and an intense pre-photo workout, I'd say they're about 90% legit.

  • Snath

    He's obviously snorting pure powdered cobra venom.

  • A Guy

    Lighting, makeup and probably post-processing effects.

    I will say that he is definitely on a little AAS, just like he was for his last turn as Wolverine. Nothing big, just some testosterone and probably some anavar.

  • zeke_the_pig

    Don't make fun. He's Aussie - those veins are just the result of some deathbug biting him in the night. 2 seconds after that picture was taken he exploded.

  • anon

    He got pretty damn lean this time. I guess Hugh knows what he's doing with his diet and training after playing this role for so long.

  • Natallica

    Chest. chestchestchestchestchest. Sorry, I think my brain had a glitch. What was I thinking? Oh, yeah. Chest

  • hapl0

    What chest? That's so...flat.

    Whatever happened to him eating like a pig and turning into a bulldog?

  • Natallica

    It's not flat! It's perfect! Do you want him to look all man-boobylicious, like Simon Cowell?

  • hapl0, I want him to look like Mike Tyson.

    So not only did Aronofsky leave the project but so did the most accurate potrayal of Logan we cud have had.

  • Carlito

    Human growth hormone is a hell of a drug.

  • Kailan_Sunshine

    Where are his feet?

  • Bert_McGurt

    Uh-oh. I smell a Liefeld...

  • Strand

    Just wait for the thigh pouches.

  • Luke Anthony Matthews

    Wolverine, again? Please, give it a break.
