Jackman will be playing Marvel Comics' Wolverine for the fifth time, sixth if you count his short cameo in X-Men: First Class.
The production has had some troubles, however: Indie film star Darren Aronofsky was to direct the film, but pulled out when he decided to be with his family. The film will be shot in Japan.
The Wolverine follows the titular character when he travels to Japan. Comic fans know that Wolvie has quite a history with the island nation, including a lover and a certain Silver Samurai.
So what do you think of Jackman's look?
