It may be unexpected, but it’s hardly surprising that the formerly development hell-ed sequel to X-Men Origins, The Wolverine, has managed to release on set footage, especially since news related to the project have started to pour in these past few weeks.
Logan himself, Hugh Jackman, tweeted about the developments, stating that they’re already on day 1 of the shooting:
“We’re on day 1 of shooting. Wolverine is back… feel so pumped about this one… never felt so ready!!!! will keep y’all posted!!!”
The shoot is currently taking place in Kurnell, where a beach has been made to look like a Japanese war camp. The footage was shot by Australia’s 7News:
The Wolverine follows Logan as he falls in love with a Japanese woman, who’s already betrothed to another man. The movie will feature comic book villain The Silver Samurai.
The Wolverine opens in cinemas on 26 July 2013.
