‘The Wolverine’ Jean Grey Character Poster

‘The Wolverine’ Jean Grey Character Poster

The latest watercolor painted one-sheet for The Wolverine carries on the tradition of the sumi-e ink campaign created by Fox's Chief Creative Officer Tony Sella. Here, we see Jean Grey, played by Famke Janssen, whose ghost will guide Logan (Hugh Jackman) on his journey through Japan. Check it out, and then read on for comments from director James Mangold, who reassures comic book fans that this adventure is purely a standalone story with no ties to the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past. And like a proper one-off, it has a beginning, middle, and definitive ending.

That said, its likely that there will still be a post credit stinger. It's just that the two films will not be tied together within their story structure, and like we see with some of the Jean Grey footage, this rumored cookie will serve as a flashback.
