New ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ Promo Shots: Hugh Jackman Goes ‘Snikt!’

A trio of new promo shots for “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” have hit the ’Net, and all three feature a solitary Hugh Jackman being the best there is at what he does — and apparently, what he does is look like a complete bad-ass.

Last time we saw the “Wolverine” star, he was singing and dancing his way through a musical, comics-themed Oscars introduction that included nods to the night’s big winner on the superhero front, “The Dark Knight,” as well as “Iron Man” and, of course, a big “Wolverine” finale. While the latest images (posted on X-Men movie site XMF) don’t seem to reveal anything new about the much-anticipated solo debut of Marvel’s favorite Canucklehead, they do offer up a few more quality shots of the character Fox hopes to spin off into yet another comics-friendly franchise. (After the jump, check out two of the images in full-size format.)

Now tell me, folks — wouldn’t this next one be great as one of those retro, black-velvet portraits that Elvis always seems to end up on? You know it’s true.

“X-Men Origins: Wolverine” hits theaters May 1, 2009.
