This Is What ‘Wolverine’ Looks Like When He’s Happy — POSTER

If you were a young mutant who watched your father get murdered, and then had to deal with animalistic compulsions and claws sprouting from every which crevice of your admittedly well-manufactured physique, you’d probably be a tad miffed as well. So don’t blame Hugh Jackman for looking rather moody in the below poster for The Wolverine, his second solo feature in the X-Men franchise.

As the world seems to crumble around him, Wolverine — Logan, James Howlett, Patch, whatever you wanna call him — himself seems to be crumbling, his humanity engaged in unceasing war with the monster brewing inside of him. Either that or he’s just cold. Put a shirt on, Hugh, it’s still flu season!

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
