The Wolverine on-set video released: watch now

We never thought we’d see this day arrive, but the cameras have finally started rolling on The Wolverine after years of setbacks and false-starts.

Hugh Jackman tweeted the good news, posting: “We're on day 1 of shooting. Wolverine is back... feel so pumped about this one... never felt so ready!!!! will keep y’all posted!!!”

Shooting is currently taking place in Kurnell, where a beach has been made to look like a Japanese prisoner of war camp.

Australia’s 7News managed to get a glimpse of the filming. Watch their report below…

The Wolverine sees the eponymous claw-wielder falling in love with a Japanese woman who’s already been promised to another man.

With Logan refusing to give up on love, he battles the Silver Samurai to win her hand.

The Wolverine
opens in cinemas on 26 July 2013.
