First official image of Wolverine shows off Hugh Jackman's new claws

Wolverine and his veins are pissed. Here's the very first official look at director James Mangold‘s The Wolverine, which follows the X-Man to Japan. The flick is supposed to take place some time after X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but thankfully, the adamantium claws in this shot don't look like they were pulled out of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The Wolverine will hit theaters on July 26, 2013 — check out the photo in high resolution below. [Via The Wolverine Twitter account]
