Hugh Jackman describes his signature superhero persona as "a monster" in the latest look at "The Wolverine."
"You see Wolverine more vulnerable, more at risk, and more of a monster than ever before," Jackman says in a new behind-the-scenes featurette for the 20th Century Fox film hitting theaters on July 25.
The Marval mutant's latest big-screen adventure takes place after the events of "X-Men: The Last Stand" and follows him to Japan, where a powerful businessman — who Wolverine saved years ago — offers him mortality. While in a weakened state, Logan must rely purely on his adamantium claws and animal instincts when mixing with a dangerous crowd of armed assassins, ninjas, a snake-like mutant who spits venom and a giant metallic warrior named the Silver Samurai.
The idea seems to be that even without his regenerative powers, Wolverine is a bigger beast than ever.
"What kind of monster are you?" a foe asks Jackman during battle. "The Wolverine," he responds.
