Some set pics of Hugh Jackman from WOLVERINE II, currently known as THE WOLVERINE, which is set in Japan. The director is James Mangold. From these photos, we can assume that in the story, Jackman’s Wolverine character will have a period of extreme self doubt, which evolves into self neglect, from which he will be rescued by a period of intense study of Zen Buddhist philosophy and Japanese fighting techniques.
What do you think?
There could supposedly be another reason…like Wolverine loses his razor and fears barbers for a while.
Nah, we’re going with the self doubt and redemption thing.
