The Wolverine just started filming in Austrailia this week and Hugh Jackman has taken the time to show his appreciation to the people of Australia. You can check out photos of Jackman in character at The Leader.
Jackman personally met with the Mayor of Sutherland Shire where the film is currently shooting, saying: “It’s a beautiful spot here. This is the first time I’ve been to Kurnell and the location is great.”
According to the article, the film will continue shooting in Sydney for a while before moving to Japan where they will wrap filming in November.
Also starring Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee, The Wolverine sees Logan beginning a forbidden romance with a Japanese woman whose hand in marriage is, unfortunately, promised to another man. Since Logan won’t take “no” for an answer, it puts him into battle with her father and her samurai-sword-wielding brothers and Silver Samurai.
The Wolverine is scheduled to hit theaters on July 26, 2013.
