New Image From Wolverine
Snikt!

08 July 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards  

submit to reddit

So, it seems someone was busy with their scanner over the weekend and made a, rather dark, copy of the new image of Wolverine that is printed in the latest issue of Empire, which has since been circulating the interwebs. Below you can see the image as it's supposed to be seen, with actual lighting and colours and stuff. Click the image for a larger version. Please note, despite some reports this is not a poster for the film.

Everytime we look at this photo we feel compelled to put down the cake and start lifting heavy stuff. Fortunately, we've found that it soon passes if you stay very still.

RE: Confused?
Saw a "Blood" interviewed on London tonight with his face blurred to save his identity about knife crime....he said and i quote..."No one wants to lose in a fist fight innit blood".....so there's your answer. More

RE: looks ok
L: jk3555 but the claws look a little too shiny and arent exactly realistic (well as realistic as id imagine knives growing out between your knuckles would look) Ha ha, not realistic, I have some really shiny knives which I use to prepare food with, anyway they are adamantium which is supposed to be the hardest metal in the world so even after a good stab up they'd be as shiny as the day they were cruelly and viciously inserted under his skin by Strykers weapon X program.   As More

Wolverine...knife crime.....err NO!
Oh please wolverine or ANY other comic book characters, rappers (yes rappers) has NOTHING to do with knife crime. That's just a stupid misconception and it annoys the hell out of me because it really isn't that black and white to say that rappers are to blame for knife, especially not the ones that have been ocurring so often over the past few weeks. And to put the part of the blame on a comic book character...that's bloody hilarious! More

Get a grip
do you seriously believe some chav is going to attach a set of knives to their fist and go on a stabbing rampage after seeing this? I tried it with bread knives during Freddy Krueger's heyday, trust me kids it ain't worth it, unless your a sucker for public ridicule. Anyway the Joker is a much better role model for demonstrating inventive knife play and evil deeds on the street. More

Fair comment..
I appreciate what your saying Mr. Hairdo. Wolverine has always been one of the more violent characters out there. I also wondered about The Dark Knight aswell. It would seem that The Joker's weapon of choice is to be a knife and lots of them. My stance is the following. Heroes and villans have been turfing it out for nearly a hundred years on the big screen, cowboys used guns, as do cops and robbers, now we have an influx of superhero movies in which one "hero" has them inbedded in More

RE: Knife Crime...
Reporting knife crimes has gone up, it's the media's new thing.   The image is cool, but it's a bit like the one we saw ages ago. More

RE:Knife crime
What? In a world of being PC, I really think you have taken it a little too far. If anything we should be blaming rappers for their lyrics which involve "Cappin fools" etc which not many people notice. On a lighter subject, I hope this film cleans up the mess which Bratt Ratner left after Xmen3 (A Ratner film without any racial jokes! Wow). More

RE: Knife Crime...
L: fierce-hairdo You have to wonder. With all the horrific knife crime happening in the capital right now doesn't an iconic 'hero' like this send out all the wrong signals? as much as any of the Rambo films and Crocodile Dundee.   n't an image like this say: "Its cool to carry huge knives round and to dispatch your enemies with them is even cooler"?Or something to that effect.
