The long-delayed X-Men prequel The Wolverine is finally on the way, now that we have an official still from the production to prove it. Director James Mangold (3:10 to Yuma) directs a chapter in Logan's life set in Japan, based on some of the most memorable issues of the original comic book series, where the X-Man squares off against the Silver Samurai (Will Yun Lee). The first image from the film reveals nothing about the plot or characters within it, except for the fact that Hugh Jackman has clearly been working out like never before. Seriously, Wolverine has never looked this ripped.
The Wolverine is due in theaters on July 26, 2013.
