Hugh Jackman Poses In First Official ‘Wolverine’ Photo

The first official photo from “The Wolverine,” Hugh Jackman’s long-in-the-making pseudo-sequel to “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” has landed online — and if you weren’t insecure about your body image before, chances are you will be now.

Yep, he’s the best there is at what he does, alright — and what he does is look completely jacked out of his mind. It’s no surprise to see Jackman so cut for the role, of course, as director James Mangold hinted at the actor’s extreme body makeover well before shooting on “The Wolverine” even began.

“Hugh and I have an idea about when in Wolvie’s life when we’re finding him,” Mangold told MTV News in 2011. “I think it’s in a place that will be a little more intense than we’ve ever seen him. In that sense, we’ll be examining his look and everything else through that prism. That would affect everything from his level of musculature to his look.”

Jackman and Mangold’s “The Wolverine” hits theaters on July 26, 2013.

Huge thanks to Ryan Penagos (aka Agent M) for releasing the photo!
