First official image of Hugh Jackman as "Wolverine"!

Fox has released the first official image of Hugh Jackman in The Wolverine, the official sequel of the famous spin-character from the X-Men film series.

This sequel will focus on the relationship between Wolverine and Mariko, the daughter of a Japanese organized crime boss. The film, which also will include Will Yun Lee, Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Tao Okamoto, Rila Fukushima and Brian Tee, will be released in theaters in Summer 2013. 

James Mangold will be directing and the whole film will have an Asian feel, perhaps like the martial arts movie – “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”

Check out the pic below and let us know if this sequel is one you’re excited for in 2013…

Obama and Spidey campaigning together for ’09?

Obama and Spidey campaigning together for '09?

Marvel Comics just announced that issue No. 583 of “The Amazing Spider-Man” will hit the stands on Jan. 14 with two different covers, one of them a special Inauguration Day edition that shows the wallcrawler with the president-elect.

It’s been quite the fanboy election. There was talk that Obama is a devotee of “Conan the Barbarian” and other Marvel Comics, and then he was also the star of a graphic-novel biography that was surprisingly poignant and well-executed. There’s also that memorable portrait of him by comic superstar Alex Ross that you can see below.

Marvel Comics executives said it was a natural to put the 44th president in a heroic context.

“When we heard that President-Elect Obama is a collector of Spider-Man comics, we knew that these two historic figures had to meet in our comics’ Marvel Universe,” says Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada.  “Historic moments such as this one can be reflected in our comics because the Marvel Universe is set in the real world.  A Spider-Man fan moving into the Oval Office is an event that must be commemorated in the pages of ‘Amazing Spider-Man.’”

There’s plenty of presidential history in the comics, such as the time that JFK appeared in the pages of Superman (the issue was written and drawn before Kennedy’s 1963 assassination but actually hit stands after that dark day in Dallas) and Richard Nixon’s 1972 cameos in “The Fantastic Four” and in “The Incredible Hulk.”
