Hugh Jackman flexes in behind-the-scenes Wolverine image

Director James Mangold reveals the still via Twitter

Directors revealing photos from behind the scenes of their superhero movies is becoming a legitimate trend on Twitter, with The Wolverine helmer James Mangold following the lead of Marc Webb (The Amazing Spider-Man) and Bryan Singer (X-Men: Days Of Future Past).

Mangold took to the social networking site to reveal an image of an extremely ripped-looking Jackman (in Wolvie’s trad vest get-up) filming a wood-chopping scene in Omishima. We’re guessing this scene will do little to quell Jackman’s ‘ultimate male’ status…

Mangold also notes that an eight-inch caterpillar was spotted on set that morning (probably not a euphemism).

The still should help to sate the appetites of fans desperate for the trailer: Mangold previously promised a glimpse in early 2013, so we’re hoping that’ll drop sooner rather than later.

Could director-tweets be the new thing in behind-the-scenes movie access? Or will it be a passing fad? Tell us below…
