Hugh Jackman is shown in a scene from "The Wolverine." / 20th Century Fox
Hugh Jackman is looking sharp -- literally -- in a newly-released photo from "The Wolverine."
Jackman is shown in the photo as the mutant Logan (aka Wolverine), dressed in black and bearing what looks like blood on his claws.
Fans will get see a bit more of this Marvel hero's solo film next week, according to director James Mangold, who tweeted that a full trailer is on the way:
Clarity for all asking: I will tweet a peek (a "tweazer") on 26th. Full teaser online on 27th. 3D and 2D in theaters on the big screen 29th.-- James Mangold (@mang0ld) March 18, 2013
For those who are counting, Jackman has now played Logan/Wolverine seven times -- that includes the first "X-Men" trilogy, "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," his memorable cameo in "X-Men: First Class," "The Wolverine" and upcoming appearance in "X-Men: Days of Future Past."
"The Wolverine" will arrive in theaters on July 26, 2013.
