We’re eagerly anticipating the US release of Wolverine in a couple of weeks – and it’s a blast to see Hugh Jackman, the Wolverine himself, all turned out on the red carpet with his co-stars. I mean, what could be cooler than pulling up to London’s Leicester Square in a white sports car to the praise and excitement of the UK’s most discriminating fans?
Answer: Retractable adamantium blades and the ability to heal which makes you nearly immortal. That’s a tiny bit cooler. But still, SPORTS CAR!
Take a look.

Hugh Jackman Points His Fingers 5 of 11
Hugh is a great star, to be sure. But in real life he is not the Wolverine and he does not, in fact, have adamantium blades that extend at will. In real life, he is just a man pointing.

Will Yun Lee in a Sweet Suit 7 of 11
Will Yun Lee is billed as a character called "Harado," but you can bank on an appearance of Lee as The Silver Samurai. And if that didn't make you go "squee," Will Yun Lee in an impeccably tailored suit will. Squee.
Famke’s a Scene Stealer 8 of 11
I'm guessing Famke Janssen will appear in The Wolverine in flashbacks as Logan's old friend Jean Grey. She looks lovely in nude and black.

Famke Janssen's face is as beautiful as Hugh Jackman's is handsome. And, PS: She's 3 years older than him. Thanks for ruining 47 for everyone Famke Janssen.
Hugh Jackman With Co-Stars 10 of 11
Tao Okomoto and Rila Fukushima look beautiful, even standing next to Hugh Jackman. I have a feeling they're going to teach him a thing or two about martial arts in the movie.
Hugh is the Man 11 of 11
But Hugh Jackman is unquestionably the man of the hour, as he is The Wolverine. It was career-making for him and he's played him 6 times. Long live Wolverine!
