Hugh Jackman has nothing left to lose in new Wolverine image

The Wolverine has unveiled a new image online, featuring Hugh Jackman’s titular hero brandishing blood-stained claws that are at odds with his sharp black suit.

The image - and several more besides - can be glimpsed in our on-set coverage of the superhero sequel in issue 205 of Total Film magazine, on sale now.

Seemingly showcasing a lot of what the film has to offer - lone, brooding antihero, lush Japanese settings, adamantium-based weaponry - it’s another intriguing look at a standalone comic-book that has so far kept its card close to its rippling pectorals.

And just at the bottom of the shot? Looks like the victim of Logan's knuckle-blades...

Check out the new image from The Wolverine below:

According to the official Wolverine Facebook page (which released the image), along with the statement, 'There's nothing left to lose.'

And while we’ve been waiting with bated breath for a teaser trailer, director (and Twitter fiend) James Mangold has announced that we can expect a full teaser on 27 March 2013 (after a sneak peek ‘tweazer’ the day before).
